Nice carbonation noticed when uncapping the bottle. Nice beige colored head. Black in color with a redish brown tint when held up to light. Very malty aroma with no hop aroma present. Very insipid flavor with a slight bitterness at the end. Leaves a clean pallet. Overall an average beer. Would make a good "lawn mower" beer.

Barwa prawie czarna. Piana jasno br?zowa, drobno ziarnista przypomina rozpuszczone lody kawowe. Aromaty kawy, kawy z rumem czy likieru. W smaku bardzo podobnie. Goryczka kawowa, palona jest niska i ma?o intensywna. Wysycenie ?rednie w kierunku do niskiego, pasuje. Piwp jest zdecydowanie za "chude", wodniste i to jest na pewno minus.

Can. Nice coffee & roasted malt aroma, but taste is totally empty, almost like water. Only a little bit of coffee. Nitrogen gives some smoothness.

Dark black and a solid creamy foam. Dark roasted malt and a medium body. I don’t liken it that much but it is a good beer

Bottle. Aroma- weak coffee and some maltiness. Black, clear, with a fantastic head- I’ve tried this beer couple of times, but nitrogen always makes an impression. Taste- creamy, with delicate coffee and nothing more- no roastiness, no bitterness. Quite watery in the aftertaste. Good beer for a football match, but as a Stout- quite poor.

Looks so fucking sexy. Taste dry roast with creamy body, easy going and smooth.

Draught at the brewery. One of those classics which deserves the attention. Pours brown and becomes a wonderful dark beer with a beautiful thick off white foam. Surely the worlds most beautiful pint (?!!). Lacks taste of other stouts but then again i like to think of Guinness in a world of its own and it’s one of those drinks I’ll always want on some occasions.

aroma of roasted malt and coffee, dark brown colour with creamy beige foam, tastes watery, a bit bitter , and coffee like, low carbonation.

Brodzislaw (301) - 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.
