ciaranc (782) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 1, 2013
Very dark brown, lovely lasting frothy light tan head. Nose is that classic guinness roast malt, with some fruity, sugary sweet notes. Lovely roasted barley taste, decent bitterness towards the finish. Some warning alcohol. Heavy mouthfeel, fairly forward carbonation. Lovely.

Donker rood kleurige bier. Helder. Crème kleurig schuim. Smaak zuur zoet laulierdrop. Smaak bouwt zich langzaam op. Bierproefavond 20-11-2013 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mpuntmuts (137) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 5, 2013
Dark almost black pour with medium sized head wich is a bit of a let down compared to regular draft Guinness. Yeasty smell with a hint of coffee and chocolate bitter. Taste is beautiful chocolate and coffee bitters. Bitter lingers on nicely. Mouthfeel is thin, but that I expected. Much better than the standard Guinness but it lacks body. Still an Okay beer.

Inbreak (1875) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - OCT 24, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 27.09.2013, 0,33l bottle shared with Palme @ hotel in Amsterdam:
Nice slightly brown creamy longlasting head. Aroma is kind of neutral, slightly sour-ish roasted, dark malts, caramel, dark sugar, chocolate, coffee, cardboard, butterscotch. Taste is dark malts, hops, burnt caramel, butterscotch, cardboard, grass, bitter chocolate, hay, coffee. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Pretty boring.
