Enjoyed but didn’t love. There are better dry stouts out there. Creamy head is a nice touch though.

Whatup14 (1775) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2016
En fût. Couleur brune foncée presque opaque, mousse moka crémeuse et éternelle laissant une épaisse dentelle. Arôme de malt torréfié, café froid, cendré. Goût de malt torréfié, café léger. Carbonatation faible, corps moyen-faible.

ziobarba2000 (47) - Roma, ITALY - DEC 14, 2016
Lattina da 0,50. Schiuma densissima e persistente. Carbonatura quasi inesistente. Colore nero. Aroma fortemente legnoso, amaro e sentori di corteccia. Nel complesso poco decisa e troppo caratterizzata. Finale breve. Sará la lattina sará uscita male ma... Consiglio 2/10

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2016 Barwa ciemna, fantastyczna, genialna, mistrzowska piana. Piwo świetnie się formułuje w szkle, stopniowo przybiera właściwą formę. Aromat nie powala tak jak wygląd tego piwa. W smak karmel, trochę kawy i czekolady. Wodniste.

sportowiec2010 (18) - POLAND - DEC 12, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2016 Delikatnie słodowy aromat. Piana niesamowita, wysoka, drobna, barwy kremowej, doskonale oblepiająca szkło i pozostająca przez długi czas. Najładniejsza piana świata! Świetny patent z kulką :) Barwa czarna, z rubinowymi refleksami. Smak delikatnie mleczny, troszkę kawy. Piwo dobrze wysycone, ale zdecydowanie za bardzo wodniste. Brak wyczuwalnej goryczki. Piwo wspaniale wygląda, ale w smaku jest nijakie i moim zdaniem do bólu przereklamowane.

En canette 33 cl. Superbe mousse crémeuse ... et qui reste. Odeurs : pain, biscuit, café, lait (breakfast ?). Saveurs en bouche : café, fruits secs style noisette, légère amertume. Un peu plus d’alcool et ce serait très bon mais ce n’est tout de même pas mal, loin de là !

Went to Dublin to try "real Guinness". Oh dear, what a disappointment. It looks lovely in its black and white glory, but has no taste, body or aroma other than a slightly muddy aftertaste. Utterly disappointing. Beer for people who prefer style over substance.

ciocanelu (1731) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 4, 2016
From bottle. Really dark brown color with creamy tan head. Aroma has mostly sweet, roasted malt. Taste is just roasty with a hint of caramel but not much else. Light body, quite watery, low carbonation. Really easy drinking but it lacks some complexity.

VDuquerroux (1401) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - NOV 23, 2016
On tap, 25cL. Home. A shining pitch black beer with a creamy beige head ; good retention. Roast, cereal, light coffee, chocolate. Light sweet, light to medium dry lasting refreshing. Medium body and texture, soft carbonation, dry sweet roasty finish. Overall, enjoyable !
