PowY (1862) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - NOV 17, 2018
500 ml can at home, bb. 4.7.2019. Pours black with a fine, creamy beige head. The aroma is medium malty, mildy roasted malt, toffee, nuts, mild coffee, hints of dark fruits, some grains. Light to medium somewhat watery body with a soft carbonation, a very light sweetness and a light bitterness. The flavor is similar to the smell with mild roasted malt - mild coffee, toffee, nuts followed by some burnt wood, licorice, some grainy notes and hints of cardboard. Finishes with a light roasty bitterness. Aroma: 6 Appearance: 5 Taste: 7 Palate: 3 Overall: 11

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2018 Õlle on selline jook, et iga uus kord kui klaasi või pudeli suule tõstad, siis leiad midagi uut, sõltuvalt tuhandest-miljonist pisiasjast, mis hetke olukorda mõjutavad. Seega piirdun iga õlle juures selle tekstiga.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2018 It is a light dark beer with above average bitterness and bitter aftertaste.

I dont really know about any other stouts that is so famous like Guinness but this one just wont be my favorite at all. On draft it could be a very nice experience and in Dublin especially, but this can version is just dull. Yeah got some smoothness and creamy head and coffee, chocolate aromas and so on. Drinkable as well but nothing else. Nothing special. Just a low carbonated beer with very boring flavours. I guess the real Guinness in Ireland is much more interesting.

Es handelt sich wohl um eines der bekanntesten Bier weltweit, wohl auch wegen des ausgezeichneten Marketings. So gibt es auch einige interessante Fakten zu dem Bier: So ist das Bier in einigen afrikanischen Ländern das meistgetrunkene Bier und wird dort auch in Lizenz hergestellt. Seit Ende 2017 ist das Bier offiziell vegan; vorher wurde es durch einen Filter an Fischblasen geleitet und durfte diesen Titel nicht tragen. Zum Geschmack brauche ich wohl nicht viel sagen; ich glaube jeder hatte schon mal ein Glas in der Hand. Es mag geschmacklich bessere Stouts geben, aber dieses kann ich guten Gewissens empfehlen.

Ingresso maltato e lievemente caramellato. retrogusto di caffè. A mio parere la migliore stout bevuta in tutta Dublino.

MaltTasty27 (142) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 27, 2018
Pint på O´Learys Centralstationen Göteborg. Kolsvart med smutsvitt underbart skum, mycket fin att titta på. Maltig och lite rökig doft. Rund och krämig smak. En av mina absoluta favorit öl, smakar bäst när den är tappad från fat. Har inga problem att dricka 3-4 sådana här om jag går ut på krogen.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2018 As black as eternal oblivion, as bold as man who stands up for what he believes in, as beautiful as a goddess and as brilliant as Leonardo Dicaprio’s award winning “The Revenant”. This stout will eventually knock any man out.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2018 Doing this just as it is my all time favorite and go to beer! Love love Guinness!

FlightLees22 (715) - Groningen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2018
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2018 Veel smaken van mout, met een drop/koffie achtig aroma. Het donker zwarte bier met nauwelijks schuim is wel te herkennen uit duizenden. -backlog de BierApp-
