Brodzislaw (316) - POLAND - FEB 5, 2017
Kolor niemal czarny klarowny. Piana beżowa z drobnych pęcherzyków, bardzo drobnych, sztywna, długotrwała. Aromat palonych słodów, kawy, bardzo wytrawny, delikatny, niezbyt intensywny. Chmielów brak. W smaku wodniste, znów prym wiodą kawowe nuty, prażone i palone zboża. Goryczka minimalna, palona. Bez alkoholu w odczuciach. Wysycenie wysokie. Piwo jest jednowymiarowe, trochę nudne nawet. Najlepiej prezentuje się wizualnie, zwłaszcza piana. Przyjemny delikatny zapach, a doznania wieńczy płaski i wodnisty smak.

Can. The appearance is very pretty, courtesy of the nitrogen. Some roasted malt with some creamy texture to it. But it’s flat and no lingering taste. Super boring stout, like a boring lager.

Can at home. Head big and creamy. Aroma sweet chocolate, taste more bitter coffee. A little watery, taste and mouthfeel both rather flat. Easy drinkable.

Piana jest genialna. Smakuje dobrze ale smak jest mało intensywny i to jest główna wada. Polecam bardzo

Dark brown beer with beige head. Aroma is roasted malts and coffee. Taste is a bit bitter, malts, caramel and coffee. Good balanced beer. Medium body, mild, easy drinkable.

Barwa ciemnobrunatna, z przebłyskami, piana trwała. W aromacie słabo, lekka kawa. W smaku wodniste, lekka kawa, lekka paloność, wyraźny finisz chmielowy, ze słabą goryczką. Wysycenie bardzo niskie, odpowiednie, bardzo mało ciała, dobra pijalność. Wodniście, aż zanadto...

DonGregorio (206) - POLAND - JAN 28, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2017 Can. Of course great appearance: clear brown colour, large, durable tan head. Faint aroma of dark and roasted malts, some coffee. Taste is light sweet and bitter, malty, coffee, roasty. Light+ body, average carbonation, watery, but smooth texture. The same old Guinness: drinkable, but watery and not intense.

Guinness jaki jest chyba każdy wie. A jak nie to niech sprawdzi. Niezłe pifko.
