Alright, I admit it took time to educate my palate to the goodness of Guinness. Two years of drinking black and tans and I was riding without the training wheels. Full of flavor, rich and hearty ... if it’s on tap, I’ll drink it anytime and anywhere.

0,5l nitro can. Nose: slightly metallic, burnt coffee, slight citrus. Taste: coffee, roasted malts, grassy hop notes, slight taste of boiled broccoli. A bit watery.

Po otwarciu sporo wyleciało z puszki. Piękna kremowa piana, czarna barwa piwa z brunatnymi przebłyskami. AROMAT: wszystko mało intensywne: mleczna czekolada, kawa, pojawia się też metaliczność. SMAK: wodniste, ale gładkie i kremowe, jest lekka paloność, bardzo słaba kawa i czekolada, tak poza tym to pustka. spora kwaskowość trochę przeszkadza. Piwo prezentuje się świetnie, natomiast smakowo nie powala.

From bottle into shaker pint. Pours a near black color with a finger of tan creamy head. Smells like an iced coffee. Taste follows nose with a cold watery cappuccino flavor. Smooth creamy mouthfeel but not as good as draft or the widget can for that matter. I would not turn one down, especially on St Patrick’s Day. A definite classic but not my go to stout by any means.

Can. After realizing that I’ve never rated this old acquaintance, I decided to rectify this mistake immediately. Of course it pours opaque dark brown with creamy beige head thanks to its ingenious ball-in-the-can contraption. very faint vanilla-roasted malt aroma, low carbonation, lightly bitter roasted malt taste, smooth body, medium finish. Extremely smooth as everyone knows.

Prawie jak doktorzy - piwo samo wylatuje z puszki. W zapachu i smaku woda z lekko dotknięta kawą. Jedyny plus to fenomenalna piana dzięki kulce.

swego czasu piłem je co parę dni wręcz zachwycony tym, co zaszczyca swoją obecnością moje szkło; po kilkumiesięcznej przerwie i ponownym spróbowaniu zachwyt gdzieś uleciał. w zapachu rozwodniona kawa, lura, rzekłbym, poza tym nic specjalnego, ciężko było mi cokolwiek wyczuć. smakować też nie smakowało jak dawniej, okazało się być wodniste, ponadto posmak lury i w zasadzie to by było na tyle "smakowania". jedyne co się nie zmieniło, to wygląd; zaiste nim będę zachwycony na dłużej.

Iconic cascading pour, settles into mostly opaque black (brown around the edges), and tan pancake head. Aroma of coffee, caramel, chocolate, cherry. Lightly dry chocolatey taste; some leafy hops, huge metallic note in the finish. Palate seems thin for a stout, but pretty smooth. Other than that metal note, this is fine - but for me, it’s too huge to ignore.
