loco_gallego (212) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 20, 2014
Stout noire; brune-rouge foncée. Mousse beige disparaissant rapidement. Faible carbonation. Arôme de café, puis caramel. Le tout assez balancé et discret pour une stout. Les arômes de torrefaction sont assez peu présents et laissent les autres s’exprimer. En bouche assez similaire, avec un léger houblonnage en fin de bouche prolongeant l’amertume, petite sécheresse. Mais un peu watery et manquant de crémosité. Stout décente, sans plus.

16erBlech (151) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - SEP 13, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2014 0,33l bottle. Well I guess Guinness is one of the best- known beers. I couldnt drink it everyday, but from time to time its quite ok.

SzopPiwosz (175) - - AUG 27, 2014
Zapach z butelki: Karmel, kawa i skórka chleba. Piana: Jasnobeżowa, drobnoziarnista, dość szybko opada do cienkiej warstewki. Kolor: Ciemnobrązowe, klarowne. Zapach: Kawowo-karmelowy. Skórka chleba, cukierki trufle, trochę wiśni. Smak: Kwaskowe, kawowo-karmelowe. Odrobina likierowości, w tle posmak mydlany. Wytrawne, bardzo niska podbudowa. Wyczuwalny alkohol. Tekstura: Lekkie, wodniste. Nieco klejące. Nasycenie: Wysokie, drażniące. Goryczka: Średnia. Pijalność: Średnia. Moje starcie z legendą. Pijałem już widżetowego Guinessa Draught z puchy i był całkiem godziwy, ale na wersje butelkową jakoś nie miałem weny, by się skusić. Przyszedł taki czas, że ciekawość mną zawładnęła i sprawdziłem, czy w butelce znajdę coś równie dobrego, co znanego. Niestety - srogo się zawiodłem, paloność jest zdecydowanie za niska jak na to, co chciałbym doznać w stoucie. Do tego mało apetyczny kolor dość odległy od czerni i piekące, alkoholowe nuty przy mocy 5%... kiepsko, naprawdę kiepsko. Duże rozczarowanie, nie polecam.

Alengrin (2813) - BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2014
Bottled Guinness, intended for the English market and often regarded as the most faithful Guinness. Thick, creamy, dense, deeply beige head, deep blackish brown colour with ruby hue, only visible under bright light. More refined and complex aroma than Guinness Draught from tap, delicate, black coffee, raisins, caramel, black pepper, nutmeg, dried plums, iron, something woody. Smooth caramel malt taste quickly making place for a soft but assertive, mouth-filling roasted coffee bitterness, woody and a bit oily, some peppery hops in the finish. More than decent, exemplary for its style.

tfredvik (1274) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2014
Close to black body with hints of something deep red. The tan head is large and creamy, but nowhere near as dense and long-lasting as the nitro widget head you get from a can. The head shrinks to a fully covering film, with lots of foam left on the glass. The moderate aroma is malty, dry and heavily roasted, almost burnt, with ashy notes, also mild coffee. Moderate flavour with dark berries and light yeast in addition to the ashy roasted malty notes. Very little sweetness and not much bitterness either. Light-bodied and dry with a pleasant carbonation level, i.e. not as depressingly flat as the canned version. Boring stuff, but it’s better than Guinness from a can if you put decent carbonation before a thick pillowy head.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 7 months before BB date, from Systembolaget Gårda, Göteborg]
