@ Röhällavägen. Flaska från Systembolaget (17:-). Doftar inte så mycket, lite rostat, lite kaffe. Även smaken är rostat och lite kaffe, överraskande tunn och smaklös, ganska hyfsad beska. En besvikelse.

KW92 (272) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 24, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa ciemno brunatna z rubinowymi refleksami, nieprzejrzyste. Piana mydlana, krótka, po chwili znika znika
AROMAT: Mało intensywny. Przypomina dość mocno posłodzoną kawę zbożową.
SMAK: Słodkie lekko palone, zbożowe. Ziemisty posmak. Goryczka średnia.
OGÓLNIE: Nie liczyłem na wiele, a to na co liczyłem otrzymałem.

kerenmk (3089) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle. Black with a tan head. heavily roasted a little medicinal and then some cocoa in the nose, also some fruit - ripe brown pear perhaps? Tastes bitter a little alcoholic with notes of roastiness. Full body, quite heavily carbonated, dry and roasty finish with a little bit more alcohol. Drinkable and better than the draught version we get here.

Jag antar att det här är påväg att bli en skändning av en helgedom. Ett stöveltramp rakt ner i det allra heligaste. För här finns nämligen inget som bär upp Guinness rykte och ära som världens mest kända, och svårdruckna, ölmärke. Förväntningarna dödar upplevelsen, det är det här ölets största problem.

Colore marrone scurissimo/nero, schiuma marroncina. Odore tostato, terroso. Sapori tostato, orzo tostato, caffè, terroso, leggermente allappante. L’amaro è dato più dal tostato che dal luppolo, anche il retrogusto.

Taste; mild chocolate, cocoa, mocca coffee, caramel, dusty straws, prunes. Soft on palate, normal body. Sweet milk chocolate in finish, some toffee, apple peel. Easy cozy stout.

Gangstergafje (169) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2015
Beautiful dark ruby red beer. It pours a little white foam. The smell is not very strong. Little smokey in the distance. The taste is also not that great. Little smoked/burnt stout aroma, a lot of sourness. The taste is Guinness thinned with water. I had higher expectations. The aftertaste is nice and has something roasted. The beer is not a real stout.

Bottle 330ml. Deep brown with small brownish head. Aroma of roasted malt, notes of coffee, some fruits sweetness and hint of milk chocolate. Flavor of roasted malt and coffee, quite sour with notes of herbs. Very carbonated, light to medium-bodied.

Although it’s the Original, i find it second fiddle to the extra stout only, but here is the review for the Titan that would become legend. On it’s nose it deliver’s a roaring scent of Burn’t Caramelized Barley, Espresso, a Ton of Malt, Turmeric and roasted Coffee, deep and Tantalizing to the senses. It Pours a very dark Brown, not as Black as Draught, or as smooth and elegant, a more Hazy, rugged, rough look, but still with it’s ruby glow, and distinctive short, brown head that quickly dissipates. In the mouth it feel’s heavy as it gets, not the smooth ride you get from Draught, it’s gritty, gravy like substance thick, with a warm, buzzing sensation super full and very very malty. The Taste is Sublime in it’s harsh, bitter burn’t barely’s, roasted malts and unforgiving Iron notes, along with a strong presence of Liquorice, and ginger tones. It’s finish is another bout of exquisite bitterness, and extra coal cindered burn’t flavours, make this a highly drinkable and challenging brew!

Just not my cup of tea. Too much carbonation for a Stout and a (in my opinion) weird taste.
