Butters (3966) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2015
33cl bottle in Granada just outside of Alhambra. Inky black pour with fair ring of off-white head. Sweet molasses and sarsaparilla with raisin and toffee notes. Some lacto-ish sweetness on the finish. Damn tasty. Especially after drinking pale lagers everywhere.

adamnowek (717) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 8, 2015
Jet black with a thin beige head. Well carbonated and the taste is strong in coffee. Much more bold in taste than the commonly available Guinness counterpart.

Alusmamuts (1068) - LATVIA - DEC 29, 2014
Dark brown, almost black with rich creamy light brown head. A bit sweet caramel aroma. Much more rich taste than "ordinari" Guiness, strong hops and roasted caramel bittrness, the later with strong aftertaste. Mild sweetness around tongue.

ksiwzos (88) - GREECE - DEC 20, 2014
Almost black, opaque, big head, lasting with beautiful lacings. Aroma of coffee, biscuit, dark caramel, dark malts, hint of smoke. Nothing standing out in the taste, just high roasted malts. A bit astringent but not in a bad way. Nice bitter finish from the malts mostly. Notes of earthy hops. Medium bodied, dry finish, little carbonation. Not anything too good but itís a decent stout.

Maakun (1638) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2014
Black with very nice light brown creamy head that leaves a small layer of foam with some big bubbles. Light fruity with some berries and strawberry candy, roasted nuts, light coffee, biscuits and cookies. Light sweet with roasted bitter finish. Nice creamy feel. Worlds apart from the disgusting draught.
