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.

Slightly fruity, bready aroma. Dark brown colour. Light brown creamy head, but doesn’t last too long. Medium bitter, medium sour, medium sweet. Lively.

ERB92 (425) - 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 (84) - 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 (66) - Łask, 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 (74) - 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.
