I remember the first time I had it. It was awful, but I was only 20 yo. Now it's one of my favorites, a go to when in a pinch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bevuta alla spina. Molto leggera, sapore di caffè, malto tostato e un po' di cacao. Carbonazione molto leggera, quasi assente. Fra le migliori birre da supermercato.

NB: Le mie valutazioni si basano sullo stile della birra. La presentazione di queta birra è bellissima. Color nero, schiuma color marroncinio chiaro con bollicine finissime. La schiuma è spettacolare. Per quanto riguarda il sapore si sente fortemente l'affumicatura e il cacao ma anche il cappuccino. L'affumicatura e il cacao sono predominanti. La consistenza di questa birra è particolare: è più densa di una birra media. La carbonazione è bassa ma per me troppo bassa. Dopo qualche minuto la frizzantezza è quasi azzerata e questo rovina un bel il gusto della birra. La birra è buona, dissetante, leggera e gustosa.

A stouts stout. The original, the one, the only. Irish to its core. Please, drink this beer with the correct pour. It might change your life if you do. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A watered down version of its brother Foreign Extra Stout. Not as flavorful and not as creamy. Drinkable, but I prefer the other one.

Turboninja (849) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 17, 2017
[email protected]'Hara's, Tampere, Finland. Clear, slightly bitter nuances of artificial roasted malts, some ash. Light/medium body and no carbonation. 1 4 3 2 6

Hafif yanık kokusu. Oldukça boş tad. Çok az alkol ve çok az malt tadı. Çok sulu.

Its Guinness, if you haven't tried it, try it. Don't complain while I enjoy one while you drink your foamy water. A great classic that is unique.

Excellent beer that is best served with some jameson and baileys dropped into it via a drop shot.

CikyFonsz (62) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - NOV 12, 2017
Genialny patent z tym azotem - piana jak marzenie, bardzo drobna, dość obfita, kremowa. Piwo czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Aromat palony, trochę kawy. Po zabełtaniu wyczuwalny DMS. W smaku delikatny posmak kawy i słodu. Bardzo wytrawne. Nasycenie niskie. Goryczka niska. Delikatne ściąganie na języku. Warka z datą ważności do 21.06.2018. Puszka 44 cl.
