Clássica Irlandesa.. Aromas de café, com bom corpo e sabor tostado intenso. Final marcante com suave amargor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wygląda ślicznie, kulki z azotem robią robotę. W nosie delikatna paloność wpadająca w wędzonkę już, ciut mocno palonej kawy. W smaku mega kremowe, ale dość smukłe i wytrawne zarazem.

I drank a Guiness once... you know what they say about once you go black. The mouthfeel is so creamy that It's like drinking an alcoholic milkshake. The chocolate and coffee flavors fill your whole mouth just like Tyrone. This is not of this planet it is of the Gods. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours black with slight tan head. Mild but layered flavor. Nutty coffee flavor is good. Solid beer, but does not fulfill lofty expectations attributed to it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I gave it a visual score of 5/5 just because I love watching the action in a freshly poured glass. I agree with most that it is definitely not the best tasting stout but a safe and readily available brand. Much better from the tap than a can and, forgive me for being a Guinness snob, but much better from a tap at St. James’s Gate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Puszka 22.08.2018 r. Aromat: kremowe, kawowe, jak lody śmietankowe Wygląd: czarne, nieprzejrzyste, piana gęsta, bardzo drobnopęcherzykowa, trwała, bardzo ładna Smak: wytrwane, kremowe, małe ciało, ale bardzo smaczne Goryczka mało wyczuwalna, nayscenie słabe.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2017 Dark brown to black colour with unstable beige head. Smell is nice of coffee, herbs and chocolate. Taste is not sweet which is nice and dry. Overally light and too watery for a dark beer.

11.2floz bottle, no date, North America, pasteurized, nonic glass. No more widget in the bottle. Label states to drink from bottle, but I poured into a glass anyway. This is not as good as draft Guinness from tap or can that I've experienced. Weak all around (even appearance). This is just a dark beer with mild roasted aroma, lackluster body and a palate of stone and gritty grains. Will update when have it on tap and/or from a can in the future.

Pours black with creamy white long-lasting head. Full bodied, creamy. Tastes like watery coffee. Famous, but not so good stout.

Voor een stout is het niet slecht. Ik ben geen liefhebber dus voor mij is het niets. When in Dublin... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
