UPDATED: DEC 10, 2017 Dublinban voltam két hetet de ott teljesen magával ragadott ez a fantasztikus 🍺. Egyszerűen fenomenális, még annak ellenére is hogy nincs benne szénsav. A hab végig megmarad a tetején ugyanazon a kb 1 ujjnyi magasságon.

En cannette 50cL. Classique des Dry Stout. Bonne mousse bien dense, aromes et gouts classiques.

440ml can, brewed in Dublin, bought from the shop and drunk at home. Pours opaque with a thick creamy head that lasts a lifetime, serious lacing, impossible to see any bead. Deep dark brown in colour without any grey or red. Little aroma, probably blanketed by the thick head, but notes of burnt malts, toast and smoke. Creamy in the mouth releasing a strong smoke and burnt toast flavour with an intensely dry bitterness keeping it fresh and crisp. Overall, still the definition of a dry stout.

Pite najczęściej z puszki. Prawdziwa klasyka. Bardzo lubię w nim odazotową kremowość.

Mimo, że nie jestem fanem stoutów, to piwo to oczywisty klasyk. Warte kupienia za samą pianę, która w genialny sposób rozprowadza się po szkle i utrzymuje nieprzyzwoicie długo. W smaku już mniej ciekawie piwo dość "płaskie" i wydaje się że trochę rozwodnione. Dzięki temu jednak bardzo pijalne i całkiem orzeźwiające. Bardzo niskie wysycenie. Mimo wszystko klasyk i piwo dość łatwo dostępne a wcale nie takie drogie, na pewno nie można się nim całkowicie zawieść.

Pours a dark brown-black with beige head and average carbonation. Aroma is of highly roasted malts and some coffee. Taste has a crisp, firm hop bite upfront which quickly gives way to full roasted flavours which endure. Beneath this the beer is smooth and light and leaves a dry, slightly bitter finish. Enjoyable beer.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2017 I really like how this beer pours, dark color with good head and a really good retention, good creamy body and good dry coffee flavour.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2017 toasted aroma , deep black in colour . light bitter taste with full body, very drinkable

GregMooreNH (163) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 25, 2017
Pours black with deep, rich head (even without the 2 minute pour). Aroma is caramel, with a hint of roast. Taste is thick caramel with a hint of sweet coffee. Finish is creamy and smooth. And old standby that maintains with longevity.
