Great beer to drink alone or in a black & tan. Its good out of the can, bottle, or out of the tap.

En canette 33 cl. Superbe mousse crémeuse ... et qui reste. Odeurs : pain, biscuit, café, lait (breakfast ?). Saveurs en bouche : café, fruits secs style noisette, légère amertume. Un peu plus d’alcool et ce serait très bon mais ce n’est tout de même pas mal, loin de là !

Went to Dublin to try "real Guinness". Oh dear, what a disappointment. It looks lovely in its black and white glory, but has no taste, body or aroma other than a slightly muddy aftertaste. Utterly disappointing. Beer for people who prefer style over substance.

ciocanelu (1620) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 4, 2016
From bottle. Really dark brown color with creamy tan head. Aroma has mostly sweet, roasted malt. Taste is just roasty with a hint of caramel but not much else. Light body, quite watery, low carbonation. Really easy drinking but it lacks some complexity.

On tap, 25cL. Home. A shining pitch black beer with a creamy beige head ; good retention. Roast, cereal, light coffee, chocolate. Light sweet, light to medium dry lasting refreshing. Medium body and texture, soft carbonation, dry sweet roasty finish. Overall, enjoyable !

Looks beautiful and has a nice thick mouth-feel. Moderately smoky, coffee-like flavour mixed with bitter sweet taste of dark chocolate. It is a lovely beer.

MGantzel (248) - Aalborg, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2016
Denne stout har et sort udseende med et tykt hvidt skum. Øllen har en sød maltet aroma og smager lidt ristet deraf med noter af chokolade. Cremet fornemmelse. Lav karbonering.
