UPDATED: DEC 2, 2015 Denso color nero con deboli riflessi rossastri in controluce, spesso cappello di schiuma beige. Aroma caffettoso con note di cappuccino, cereali e malti abbrustoliti; gusto mediamente amaro con un finale lungo e asciutto che richiama gli aromi. Effervescenza gentile, corpo medio, struttura oleoso-cremosa... un piacevole classico!

Po prostu klasyk. Mała butelka 330 ml. Bardzo dobrze uwarzone piwo, piana bardzo gęsta z drobnych bąbelków. Barwa brunatno-czarna. Hehe, piana w kolorze etykiety, piwo w kolorze butelki Czuje się i smakuje palone słody, także z lekka czekoladę.

Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Beżowa, obfita piana, ładnie zdobi szkło. Aromat mało intensywny, głównie czuć palone słody, w tle kawa zbożowa, czekolada. W smaku jest lekko kwaskowe, wodniste, dominują nuty słodowe i kawowe. Wysycenie jest dość wysokie, a goryczka niska.

It isn’t anything special, not very expressive, but surprisingly good for a beer from a large company. Distinctive flavor of brown bread crust.

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.

Black with a decent, but quickly disappearing, tan head. Aroma sweet and roasty, with a touch of ash. Taste... kinda watery, roasty, some chalk, light body.

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.
