Dark beer with a great head. Best stout I've hat yet. However I can't have many of those in a row because it get's rather boring. If I get 2 pints then I am happy.

Looks like one of my homebrewed stouts, which is no bad thing. A lovely smell of dry roasted malt and chocolate. Good mouth feel with a slight sourness and astringency to it, which makes it a better stout in my book. Much better than the Guinness you get on tap. Good.

Pretty bitter but not as bitter as some of the draught of had on tap. Smokey coffee and dry mouthfeel. Not really thin but thin in relation to the draught. Not a great choice but gets a satifactory.

Yes, I had this as a roadie travelling out to the mountains wth bardy. Quite OK: better than the loacl CUB version by a whole way. Perhaps a little too watery. Turnips and squash and tennis and stomachs of Israel.

Tastes of deeply roasted barley rather than malt, with a big hop infusion. Desperate to try a live version rather than this overprocessed sop. Lasts well in the glass, but can't find too much complexity to it. I prefer other stouts.

Well, it’s Guinness again, but thinner, somewhat more bitter and has a higher ’fizz’ content.
No substitute for having it out of the tap.

Nutty chocolate spice, medium bodied roast with a dry acidity and an effervescent finish. Much more stoutish than the draught version. Vanilla, fruit cake, subtle alcohol.Rerate from a 3.7 overall.

I had an aged version. A nine years old bottle. Not much head. Flavour of rotten fruit. Not very good.
