Kristall-König (2678) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUL 7, 2011
Das Guiness Extra Stout macht vom Etikett her auf Understatement. Das Einschenken offenbart ein super-dunkles Stout mit fast sahniger Krone. Wunderschönes Malzaroma und ein deutlicher Einschlag von Röstkaffee bestimmen die Blume. Wie gestaltet sich die Verkostung? Zuerst dominiert eine angenehme Bitterkeit, die zur Mitte hin ansteigt. Der Abgang ist trocken, malzig und klingt in einem langanhaltenden röstbetontem Finish aus. Guiness Extra Stout ist ein Bier mit Kraft und vollem Körper auf das ich gerne zurückgreifen werde!Test vom 8.10.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche

A smooth taste and dark color with a wonderful long feeling of Ireland and especially from Navan. This is my favorit stout.

Palme (3639) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2011
0.33l bottle (4.1% abv). Pours a near black body with a big bubbly tanned head. Served it quite cold but aroma is sweet roasted chocolate malts, weak espresso and lightly soapy. Lively carbonated and a really thin and watery body. Tastes OK with roasted flavors, hints of coffee and a slightly sour note hidden in there. Ends slightly dry. The body is way to thin to make this really interesting, but nice enough I suppose.

Bottle 33cl. A dark beer with good head. Nose is on roasted malt. Aroma is dry with nice dark chocolate notes, slightly licorice aroma, easy drinkable, bit watery and astringent at the finish but pleasant.
