UPDATED: MAR 28, 2015 sold in germany, but made with barley (gerste), so rating this version and not continental. mine is 4.1% abv. heavily carbonated, but the head does not last very long. medium-light body. cured ham, rye bread, citrus, grains. dry roasty finish with hints of smoke.

Good old stout. After a long time my taste has changed. Good for all the people that starts their journey with stouts.

@ Basunen 15-3-2: stor skum som lägger en fin kappa över vätskan. Doft och smak har en lätt rökig ton och små toner av choklad och malt. Inte någon större skillnad från fatvarianten. Något mjukare. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Tan head dissipated to wispy trails fairly quick. Aroma of roast malt intensified in the mouth with a burnt bitterness. Pleasant toast caramel finish.

Bottle @Temple Bar. Very similar to Guinness Draught, but somehow flattened by the absence of Nitrogen. Pours ruby red/dark brown with a foamy head. A bit flat but refreshing and drinkable.

Una stout amable, blandita, para todos los públicos, pero bebible, muy bien equilibrada y bastante bien hecha en su idea de negra auténtica aunque desbravada.

Butelka. Ladna piana, niestety szybko sie redukujaca i niespecjalnie brudzaca szklo. Barwa brazowo-czarna, lekko przezroczyste, klarowne. Aromat... ubogi. palone slody, rodzynki, kawa. karmel... i cos dziwnego nie do konca milego czego nie umiem nazwac - moze kwas chlebowy? wszystko stonowane. W smaku dosc analogicznie. lekko kwaskowato. z niewielka ale wyczuwalna goryczka, dosc tepa. w ustach wodniste. Z dawnych lat mam zakodowane w pamieci jako duzo intensywniejsze piwo :( teraz... ziew.

Bottle from Booths, Ilkley Lovely is this, just like the other standard Guinness, obviously minus the nitro. Roasted Malts, Caramel, Winter Fruits, Peaty water and a touch of lactic in there.

Fast schwarz, viel kurzer beiger Schaum. Geröstete Malzaromen, etwas Hefe und Sojasauce. Sehr malzig im Mund, ganz wenig süss, keine Säure. Erst mit dem Abgang kommt leichte Bittere von Malz begleitet. Pas mal.
