Holmen1 (2375) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 6, 2014
Flaske kjøpt på African House, Vesterbro (!) og delt med Ovesen: højt belgisk skum som varer og varer. Tørr aroma med kaffe, lær og sjokolade. Forbausende lett i smaken for sin voltstyrke, men den varmer i magen. Stor munnfylde og masse smak av mørkbrent kvalitetskaffe og 70% sjokolade. Tørr ettersmak gjør den farlig konsumeringsvennlig. En eksemplarisk stout.

Black. Dense dark beige head and lacing. Slightly sour aroma of dark caramel and blackcurrants. Surprisingly refreshing.

javiercrasher (164) - Granada, SPAIN - MAR 21, 2014
Negra con destellos rojizos y una buena capa de espuma beige con buena retención. Aromas torrefactos a café, madera y licor. Buen cuerpo y bien gasificada. En boca alicorada, con algo de barrica y café. Presencia del alcohol que sin desentonar da calidez al trago y queda en el regusto. De largo la mejor Guinness del mercado.

androman (357) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2014
30cl bottle @ home. Black color, strong creamy brown head. Aroma fruity, sweetish, coffee and rum with chocolate in the nose, flavor is dark chocolate, dark fruits, roasty, coffee, with a good moderated balance. Alcohol is slightly present rather in the nose. Taste hint of sweetness, heavy but not extreme bitterness. Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, fine roasty bitter finish. Very tasty dessert stout.

Torrefacto (533) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 18, 2014
Color negro con reflejos rojizos/caobas y espuma beige claro muy densa. Aromas de pan, biscotes y café. En boca tiene una densidad media con clara presencia de tostados, un toque de azúcar moreno y un final amargo seco y duradero. La Guinnes más rica que he probado.

mjakopa (217) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - FEB 7, 2014
Pours a dark colour with some head that sticks around. Aroma is a classic dark lager, some caramel, malty and roastyness. Taste is slightly bitter, some hints of hops and dryness, also hints of sweetness and ends with alcohol. Aftertaste is rounded and soft. Very good Guinness, nothing like the regular Draught, but nothing to special either.

a_cross (600) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2014
Black, thin grey-brown head; aroma reminded me of smoky bacon, and you can’t go wrong with smoky bacon; taste is lightly roasted malt, bitter coffee, smoke, ash, a hint of dark fruit; dry; light, quite soft and very quaffable for 8.0; best version of Guinness that I’ve tasted, really impressed.

Habanero (2560) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2014
Bottled. Pours nearly black with a medium sized, tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and slightly bitter. Medium to full bodied, oily to creamy text. and flat to soft carb. A very nice stout.
