Konsumowane w Delirium Cafe w Brukseli z polecenia barmana. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta, piana średnia. Nasycenie średnie. Aromat śliwek i rodzynek. W smaku śliwki i rodzynki, ale jakby w tle, nie biora góry nad wytrawnym smakiem piwa. Rewelacja jak dla mnie.

suurjuust (1805) - ESTONIA - JUL 7, 2015
Black beer, medium tan head with lots of spotty lacing. Nose is sweet, like stale coffee with condensed milk plus roasty notes. Flavor is thick, almost chewy with sweet dried fruits, roast, coffee and bread. Some booze in the malty-roasty-bready finish along with fruity notes and some sourness. Interesting, does feel like a belgian taken on a Guinness.

Kauge (699) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 29, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2015 Bottle from beerexpress in Tallinn. BB 27.08.16. Pours dark, probably near black, with a light beige head with excellent retention and rather thick lacing. The nose strikes at first as strangely nostalgic, like kama with kefir - not necessarily something I have fond memories of... It’s also very roasty, sourish, bready, there’s molasses, coffee and cocoa. Tastes really sweet initially - even sugary, but not too much, with a lot of roastiness and finishing bitterness. Kind of robust. No carbonation to talk about... or... that’s funny, as I’m almost halfway through, the carbonation has become very noticeable and even crisp - go figure. There’s a somewhat irritatingly fizzy finishing mouthfeel. The hop (extract!) bitterness in the finish, together with the roastiness, make for a curious and somewhat unusual mix. Rather thin texture. Overall I’d say this is a very interesting, kind of schizophrenic brew - I had it for the first time but I can see myself growing to like it. Nice!

Dark black with a thick creamy foam ,good retention. Leaves a thick and creamy mouth feel. Malt, bready, coffee, hazelnut, and dark sugar. English type stout not to be confused by the classic Guinness.

It is a typical stout or we could say maybe a kind of porter. The taste is like a sweet coffee and caramel but there is a side bitter. It is a tasty beer even the fact that guinness is a multinational. The quality is average or more, hundred times better than a heineken.

jamaty (1248) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2015
Típico color casi negro y la típica también espuma densa y manchada. En aroma hay bastantes cosas, predominando los tonos de malta tostada, café y chocolate. En boca es lo mismo, pero rodeado de un buen amargor. También hay tonos dulces, aunque por encima de todo la rica malta tostada. Bastante más cuerpo que la normal, lo que la hace mucho más sabrosa y disfrutable, aunque menos bebible. Su otro logro es que el alcohol queda bastante bien escondido

thirstyrabbit (1433) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle. Dark body, medium beige head. Aroma has rich roast with hints of high roast coffee. Sweet yet also a bit astringent roast in taste. Sweet cream coffee flavour with side tastes of dry cocoa powder and licorice. Resembles some Imperial Stouts but the body is not heavy and oily - it’s drinkable like a beer should be. Good one. In my world, people would boycott the regular watery Guinness Draught and demand it to be replaced with this one.

Marduk (3991) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 11, 2015
330ml bottle. Very dark brown color. Huge size, thick and creamy tan head, stays. Roast, caramel, sweet, tiny bit of molasses in aroma. Nice roasted malts, candy caramel, sweet in taste. Long lasting sweet, almost ashy, roasted malts in aftertaste. Roast bitterness on tongue. Nice brew!

SinH4 (1087) - Garching, Bavaria, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2015
800th rating and one if the last missing styles in my list. Black color with big tan head. Roasted malts, a bit metallic (not irritating though), some fruitiness, can?t quite tell which one. Taste is roasted malts, some fruits again, burnt. Some chocolate. Dry finish. Low carbonation, feels a bit buttery. Full-bodied and dry at the same time. This has much more flavour than the classic Guinness, but the drinkability suffers a bit.
