MAGICuenca91 (29) - Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, SPAIN - JAN 22, 2017
Cerveza muy sobrevalorada bajo mi punto de vista. Un aroma flojo acompańado de un sabor a nada debido a su casi inexistente cuerpo. Un paladar también insignificante. Eso sí, una apariencia destacada. Color negro con una capa de espuma amarillenta. Como conclusión, una cerveza con mucha fama internacional que me ha proporcionado la misma satisfacción que cuando me tomo un vaso de agua sin sed...

The classic stout. first one I ever tried back in the day. I was blown away at the time, couldn’t believe something could look as pretty as this in a glass. Guinness knows that their shit sells so this stuff goes for a premium price. If it wasn’t so expensive id session this stuff, but oh well. Complaints are the price, the lack of flavor, and the lack of body this has. its just too damn watery. Overall great session stout if you are willing to fork over the cash. Looking to compare this with Murphy’s side by side soon.

Nagy izgalommal vártam, hogy a híres nevezetes sört kibontsam. Nagy csalódás volt. Valaki fogott egy adag kávézaccot, és leöntötte sörrel. Becsületből megittam. Lehet, hogy Dublinban egy helyi kocsmában megfelelően lecsapolva ízlett volna.

a classic. soft bodied refresher stout. roasted malts and slighlty coffee are nice, but it’s a bit watery.

Grumpelmies (162) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2017
Draft @ The Arrow, Yeovil (had it numerous times before and afterwards though). Aroma of roasted malts. Taste is liquorice, dark chocolate and cocoa. A pleasant little bit of butter. Some hops. Creamy but also watery. Low carbonation. Totally sessionable. Reliable.

Classique pour n’importe quel amateur de bičre. La pression surpasse toutefois ( trčs ) largement n’importe quelle bouteille/canette.

Non-nitro bottle pour into tulip glass from Signal Variety. Appearance is mostly black (dark ruby with light source directly behind), thin beige head with poor retention and trace lacing. Aroma is mostly bitter roasted malts with hints of coffee. Taste is as aroma. Palate is medium-to-full bodied with thick texture, soft carbonation and finish as taste. Overall, always prefer the nitro version. This is rich but is pretty one dimensional.

Aroma is mild, mostly roasty. Pours extremely dark brown/red, nearly black. Widget does the magic and the beer looks great. Delicate flavor, predominantly roasted malts, coffee, some caramel, light bitter finish, dry overall. Light body, very smooth and mild, low carbonation, very drinkable. It’s famous for a reason.
