UPDATED: SEP 29, 2017 Poors black, creamy off-White head that lasts forever. Full bodied, creamy . Heavy coffee, caramel, coco, brown sugar, little spice. Quality pint. Looking forward to trying a pint in Dublin at some point.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2017 This stuff is bad...I hope Guiness really is better in Ireland cause I feel bad for them if this is what they are all drinking. It taste like water that sat in dirt and coffee grounds overnight.

herrklemann (404) - Graz, AUSTRIA - SEP 27, 2017
Tap. Dense tan head on an almost black body. Faint aroma of roasted malt and licorice, a bit vegetal. Dry, lightly bitter. Slick, watery body with super-soft carbonation. Was way better when it was the only Stout I ever had.

equisetum (85) - Kielce, POLAND - SEP 26, 2017
Piwo czarne, piana beżowa, intensywna (azot). W aromacie mamy jest kawę, paloną kawę zbożową. W smaku paloność, kawa, pumpernikiel. Piwo jest ciut pustawe, prawie całkiem odgazowane i dość nijakie. Zawód.

Puszka. Wygląd - czarny kolor z lekkimi przebłyskami, piana na azocie, piękna, drobna i beżowa. Aromat - jest kawa, jest paloność, trochę jakby orzechów włoskich. Smak - jest ławką paloność, pumpernikiel, troszkę tych orzechów. Całość dość wodnista, nasycenie niskie, wiedziało piana wywołana azotem, ciało dość lekkie. Takie to sobie.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2017 Pour tout amateur de stout c'est LA bière. En pression elle est nettement meilleure encore avec sa belle mousse.

Rod_beer (69) - DF, MEXICO - SEP 24, 2017
Deep dark, almost black colour, thick beige head. Aroma of yeast, roasted malt, hints of hops and nuts. Bitter taste, flavors of coffee and malts. Bitter end, light body, long finish. Not my first one, I remembered it a lot better than this.

Sorry, I had to upload these old ratings. They were for me, not for uploading. And also I need 75 characters, hence this sentence. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Piana na azocie, dość obfita, kremowa, beżowa, piwo czarne. W aromacie ciemna czekolada, palony słód, owocowe estry, marcepan, chleb. Bardzo przyjemny. W smaku delikatne, bardzo lekkie, wręcz wodniste, kawa, lekka czekolada, owocowe estry, lekki chmiel, słodowe i kwaskowe na finiszu. Niskie wysycenie. Goryczka niska.
