ERB92 (399) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 8, 2014
Coffee, caramel, chocolate and nuts in the aroma. Almost black with a tan head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a average carbonation Overall a decent Dry Stout. This is the standard, but its not the most interesting one i think.

SangreSani (56) - Głowienka, POLAND - DEC 7, 2014
Pitch black liquid. Thick head with middle-sized bubbles. Quite fast retention. Muted aroma. A little bit of paper and cigarettes’ smoke. Chocolate and coffee hints. Quite sour. Average bitterness. Delicately sweet on finish. Average carbonation with black coffee consistency, but more oily. Aromas could be more sensible and I would make it less carbonated. It’s still pretty good beer.

Jagienka (25) - POLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Butelka. Barwa brunatna bardzo ciemna. Piana słaba koloru ciemny beż, szybko opada. W zapachu wyczuwalne nuty palności. W smaku kwaskowate z polonom goryczka. Piwo jest nasycone. W porównaniu do Guinness Draught ma intensywniejszy smak i aromat.

Bleki (56) - 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 (1710) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle. Smelly Asda. 4 for Ł5. Just about worth the instant migraine / mild anxiety / potential panic attack, that the Asda near to me is prone to induce. Just...

Bottle 330 ml. Coffee aroma. Appearance: black, clear, with tan head. Medium bitterness. Quite drinkable, but nothing special.

macio_men (42) - 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.
