I really didnít like this Guinness in a bottle. I expected the draught flavor from the can, but was denied such pleasure. I really had a hard time drinking it as it was too watery, and not as carbonated and ícreamyí as most guinness beers are. The rocket is a neat idea, and the bottle is pretty, but that doesnít get it very far since the beer quality was poor. I give it an E for Effort, but thatís about it.

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 donít liken it that much but it is a good beer

Bottle. Aroma- weak coffee and some maltiness. Black, clear, with a fantastic head- Iíve 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.

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 itís one of those drinks Iíll 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 pęcherzykůw, bardzo drobnych, sztywna, długotrwała. Aromat palonych słodůw, kawy, bardzo wytrawny, delikatny, niezbyt intensywny. Chmielůw brak. W smaku wodniste, znůw 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 itís flat and no lingering taste. Super boring stout, like a boring lager.
