Nice thick creamy head. Taste of toasted malt to the point of burnt toast. Very light carbonation and smooth aftertaste.

Vinx (89) - ITALY - NOV 30, 2015
Barely perceptible aroma of roasted malts, dark color with a decent beige foam. The taste is spoiled by a strange unpleasant off-flavor that reminds me something sulfuric. Sharp and watery, not so velvety as I expect from a stout, low carbonation. You’d better spend twice its price for a real old fashioned stout instead of wasting your money for such an industrial thing.

Svart med ljusbrunt skum. Doftar och smakar rökigt och lite choklad. Väldigt blaskig

Without expecting anything, I was surprised by his consistency. I looked where he was made .... and Belgium! Now I understand everything. The Guinness you can take is usually made in barcelona spain and its quality is like the vast majority of Spanish beer, ominous. This at least holds. Dear Belgians !!

Izvrsno, jako teško pivo. Gusto, sa okusom povrća i dima i karamele. Niska pjena sa laganim tenom. Nije postojana. Izvrsno Irsko pivo, must taste!

International stout day! Dat vier ik met de 1e stout die ik ooit heb gedronken, Guinness Stout. Mooi zwart bier met een cremekleurige schuimkraag. Aromas van geroosterde mout, caramel, rozijnen. Smaak van geroostere mout, chocola, caramel, rozijnen. Nu ik RIS/IRS gewend ben zijn dit soort stouts wat vlak van smaak en vrij dun van body. Maar het is een lekkere stout die je op een avondje stouts drinken als 1e moet nuttigen.

Mijn lievelings stout. Een volle smaak, rokerig. Van een pint kan ik heel lang van genieten.
