Guinness on st. Patrick’s Day !
Piwo czarne z pianą która szybko opada. W aromacie słodowe i palone. W smaku karmel i czarna kawa. Goryczka bardzo niska. Piwo niskonasycone i bardzo pijalne.

I bought this beer at the coop, in front my flat in Lausanne. I used two guiness to make a kind of Irish stew and the last one to drink it. The appearance is a deep black and lovely creamy foam. The taste is malty, dry with some hop but it seems more watery thah the usual guinness than I drank in Dublin, but it is just my impresion.

Coffee, roasty, some notes of chocolate, a beautiful black with a huge tan head but not very persistant, medium sweetness with a bitter final, taste is similar to the aroma...very good, maybe too sweet.

1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2016 500ml can. Brewed in Russia under license. Pours black with a big tan head. Aroma is literally like someone vomited into the glass. WTF is going on here? Taste is coffee, roasted malts and sourish. Totally ruined by the awful aroma. Drank quarter of the glass and drainpoured the rest.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2016 Not a very good beer but totally drinkable. This beers really does smell kind of sweet roasted malts. Tastes isn’t very good but the "sweet" feeling of the aromas are justified by a very soft bitterness, too soft in my opinion for a stout. Palate is pretty poor, not complex at all, I’ll say coffee/malty (just like aromas). Great apperance though, you can see it’s an industrial beer (lack of yeast) but the colour and the lovely foam just makes me want to drink it. It’s an O.K. beer, I will probably not buy it anytime soon though. The "extra" stuff sounds like marketing to me, bullshit. I usually avoid beers that lack yeast deposits, I just hoped Guinness made better quality beers, because their recipes kick ass...

Guinness jaki jest, każdy wie. Sliwki, ciemne słody, lans przy dziewczynach. I chociaż w Biedrze po trójce za butelkę, to wygląda na 3x droższe, niż Piotrek z Bagien.
