ciaranc (881) - 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.

Black color, large long-lasting creamy tan head, good lacing; roasted malty nose, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, smoke, syrup; taste initially medium sweet, followed by strong bitterness and less sweetness, resulting in lasting bittersweet sensation (chocolate, coffee) with hints of dark fruits; medium to full body, creamy texture, sof carbonation; bittersweet taste lingers on in finish

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 (2131) - 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.

birraiolo (201) - ITALY - SEP 29, 2013
Bottiglia da 33cl. Color ebano con buona schiuma di grana media color nocciola di media persistenza. Al naso note du malto tostato con un fine cioccolato. Al palato inizia con un bel tostato che lascia spazio a caffè, cioccolato e fruta matura.

mikkellund42 (551) - DENMARK - SEP 27, 2013
Bottle. Pours murky black with huge foamy brown head. Aroma is heavy roasted malt, hints of camp fire smoke, milk and overripe plums. Taste is very rich with initial sweetness then heavy bitter, medium sweet and light acidic. Body is oily and mouthfilling with crisp carbonation. Finish is very long and rich with notes of coffee, sweet licorice, gravy, dark fruits, toasted bread, Sunday roast. This is a classic beer, but the aroma is a bit vague compared to the taste and finish.

paulvanpelt (333) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2013
Mokka kraag zakt snel weg tot niets. Zwart bier. Gebrande smaak, koffie, chocolade. Behoorlijk bitter. Weinig co2, medium body.
