I’ll always have a soft spot for Guinness - it’s easily my go to beer to enjoy if I end up somewhere that doesn’t stock all the trendy IPAs I like to enjoy. Always pours well, consistent pretty much everywhere, one of the better mainstream beers for me.

Can, 1 pint. A dark beer with a very creamy brown head. Aroma is of coffee ane roasted malt. Taste is moderately bitter with a character that reminds me of dried fruits, especially plum. Light bodied with a watery finish.

Piana powala wyglądem i jest przepyszna. Nagazowanie niskie, piwo raczej wodniste. Kremowe. W smaku kawowe, palone.

Maracuja05 (796) - Mainz, GERMANY - SEP 5, 2016
[backlog] 23-09-15 / draft at Porterhouse Mainz. Just a guinness. Dark brwon black colour with beige head. Creamy roasty malt aroma. I started rating my beers with Untappd and a few basic notes. Now I want to rate them on ratebeer. So my rating sometimes lack some information. Just ignore it, it is for my personal statistics. Untappd-Rating 3.5/5

Skarecrow (344) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 3, 2016
Draught at The Malt in Greenhithe. Slight roasted aroma but not a lot else. Black with creamy nitrogen head. Medium bitterness which lasts, a roasted character and a slight metallic note followed by a smooth creamy finish. I’m biased but if I could have a tap in my kitchen which dispensed one beer type only, this would be it.

Fules (908) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - SEP 2, 2016
Feketekávés illat. Krémes, nagyon tartós hab. Ízében a feketekávés jelleget adó, pörkölt maláta a domináns, ami utóízében is nagyon hosszú ideig megmarad. Pici gyümölcsös háttéríz. Kis test, enyhén vizes és keserű.

Tasted from can. Pours a dark brown almost black with nice light khaki nitro head. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malt. Overall a little thin with chocolate milk and caramel flavor. Overall a decent dry stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
