Can at home, black beer, small head. Aroma is light, some roasted malts. Taste is the same, quite light somewhat watery, decent enough but somewhat lacking.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2018 My favorite in 90s Wide variety of different varieties. Drank this in the Gambia, bottles in Belgium (awful) the famous widget cans in UK But, still best on tap in an Irish pub..

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2018 Can, 440 ml. With nitro, open carefully. Pouring cloudy, settles down on a nice way. Head is beige/light brown, lasts forever. Aromas are not so expressive, to be honest, they're very faint. Suprisingly weak. Some brown bread, and iced coffee. Palate is very watery, short aftertaste, not really attractive. This stout (or rather porter) is not a big deal, easy going stuff, but very neutral.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2018 Pours cloudy black with a thick, off-white head that lasts forever. The aroma contains bread, nuts, toast, dough, dark chocolate and coffee. It tastes light sweet and medium roasted bitter. Should be drunk from tap

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2018 33cl iron can. Aside from the typical Guinness own unique scent it is quite a flat flavor beer... Best served in pub.

140 Р — можно брать, чтобы быстро утолить жажду. Невероятно питкое, если пить за 3 подхода в первые минут 5. На вкус: ровная вода с кофейной горечью и кислинкой.

franclh (1842) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2018
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2018 Blik 33cl thuis. Minder vol en lekker als Extra Stout. Chocolade? Wat waterig. (6-2012).

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2018 Elle me rappelle la licorne black au goût, je ne vois vraiment pas ce qu'elle a d'exceptionnel. Ah si le sucre!

0,5 canned. A híres termék nyitáskor sípolt :) Kinézetre nincs baja, Gyönyörű fekete szín, rendkívül apró lyukú hab fejlődik, a teteje meg is marad. Illata gyenge, karamell-malátás, kávé, semmi extra. A sör iváskor szinte szénsav mentesnek tűnik. Eljőjönnek karamelles, csokis és kávés jegyek, ha nem lennének baj lenne... Így is testetlennek éreztem, nagyon vizes, nincs elég íz-intenzitás, érződik hogy hatalmas mennyiségben kell gyártani. Egy csapoltat kóstolnék ebből is készítés helyén... Így csalódás.

Good go to option in most places where lager is king, sharp, bitter and at its best smooth and satisfying. Rich roasty flavour.
