If you were in a pub sometime between 1821 and 1970, chances are this is the Guinness you would have been drinking. Originally brewed as the XX version of our Porter, it’s hoppy, roasty, and crisp, with a bittersweet finish.

Bleki (106) - Gliwice, POLAND - DEC 4, 2014
Pours black with beige head, reduced quickly to none - just like in cola. In aroma some caramel, some roasty notes, some coffee, not intensive though. In mouth iron is very noticeable - good for your blood I guess. Medium sweet, medium body, quite smooth and then little bit sticky. Soft carbonation, roasty, slightly bitter, finish.

Garrold (2507) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle. Smelly Asda. 4 for £5. Just about worth the instant migraine / mild anxiety / potential panic attack, that the Asda near to me is prone to induce. Just...

macio_men (108) - Warszawa, POLAND - NOV 5, 2014
Słaby aromat. Piękny, ciemny, nieprzejrzysty kolor. Gęsta piana, długo się utrzymuje. Dość gorzkie, na początku wyczuwalny kawowy aromat, potem niestety zanika. Ogólnie, przyzwoite piwo, choć nie ukrywam spodziewałem się więcej po tak znanej marce.

loco_gallego (217) - 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.
