Bottle. Opaque black with a huge creamy tan head, good retention and lacing. Smell of roast, coffee, leather, caramel and light smoke. Sweetish, with coffee, burnt, chocolate, sour roasty notes, bitter finish. Smooth and pleasant texture, dry mouthfeel. Decent.

Mørk, mørk brun med et beige skum. Aroma av røstet malt, karamell, kaffe og lys sjokolade. Smaken følger aroma og har en tørr munnfølelse.

Gregus (177) - Kraków, POLAND - AUG 11, 2014
Puszka; barwa czarna. Piana bujna ale szybko opada do cienkiej warstwy. Aromat delikatnie kawowy, palony. W smaku lekko palone, lekko kwaśne z lekką goryczką.

Fluxing (275) - POLAND - JUL 19, 2014
Warka 15.05.2015. Kolor czarny, nieprzejrzyste. Piana wysoka, szybko opada, pozostawia gruba, betonowa warstwe i lekko oblepia szklo. Prawie w ogole nie pachnie, moze lekko kawowo, ale moze to tez autosugestia. W smaku polwytrawne, lekko slodkawe, palone i kawowe, jednak smak jest zdominowany przez bardzo intensywna suszona sliwke, calosc przypomina kwas chlebowy. W odczuciu gladkie, srednio wysycone. Goryczka wlasciwie nieobecna.

A proper Guinness is never wrong at any given moment, and the bottled version of this I got on my local pub was very good. I think that this is a bit tastier than the regular Guinness Draught 4,2 ABV. But still I would very much like to try this on tap and not in a bottle.

HerrBierkoenig (236) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 2, 2014
From 0,33l bottle. Pours dark brown liquid (light slightly pass thru), small tan head. Aroma:malty, light sweet - milk chocolate, light esspresso. No sweet, medium bitter, dry, malty, roasted malts, caramel, bit watery, unpleasent metal aftertaste. Quite bad, far from I expected. Palate: light to medium body, creamy texture, average to lively carbonation, long roasted and metal dry aftertaste. Overall: quite shame. Better stouts are made on continental europe.
