This may define Irish stout but I prefer offerings from Rogue and Deschutes. Guinness pales in comparison (Low alcohol, little to no body)

Piwo czarne, klarowne (?). Piękna, śmietankowa, drobopęcherzykowa i niezwykle trwała piana. Aromat nieintesywny- wyczuwalne nuty czekoladowo-kawowe przywodzące na myśl cukierki Kopiko, trochę słodu. Piwo z niemal zerowym wysyceniem. W smaku zaskakująco lekko- wręcz wodniście. Przede wszystkim czuć kawę z nieco słodowym tłem. Trunek wygląda obłędnie, ale smak nie zachwyca.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2018 Tap at Angel’s Piekny gesty, czarny stout ze smietankowa pianka. W aromacie troszke kawy, slodu i drozdze. W smaku palone slody i dobrze zbalansowane z tym drozdze. Ciala bardzo malo i wysycenia rownie malo. Najbardziej pijalny i uniwersalny stout jakiego znam.

The King. The finest alcoholic beverage known to man. It's like how I like my women, full bodied and takes a minute or two to settle. The rich creamy flavour even makes supping over-priced pints out of a plastic cup in a wet field suffering through the support act while your waiting for your favourite band to start enjoyable. Not as versatile as other beers (wouldn't chase it with Captain Jack), and doesn't travel well, but if you find yourself in Dublin's fair city, remove your gaze from Molly's ample bosom, get yourself to a pub, order a pint, and enjoy.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2018 A classy, classy brew. Looks like a chocolate milkshake. Full bodied flavor, rich smell, not too much head (pause lol) a nice beer to enjoy in front of the fireplace or watching the game. Pairs well with popcorn (Garrett’s in Chicago anyone?) pretzels, hotdogs, burgers, steak, .... (Hey, I’m fat. I like it with anything) Has a slight hint of cocoa that isn’t off putting. Highly recommended.

Has typical Guinness class and style. As black as my humour with a decent creamy head, maybe less so than Guinness original. Roasted coffee and chocolate malts on the bugle. Taste is of coffee, malt, baked bread and liquorice. Finish has some dark chocolate as well as a roasted BBQ meat taste.it would probably go well with pork chop sandwiches. Worth a go.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2018 在尖沙咀以$88兩杯的價錢喝到健力士生啤,生啤的味道口感香氣絕對比罐裝優勝得太多。色澤具層次感的,上

Piana jest 10/10, najdrobniejsze pęcherzyki jakie w życiu widziałem. Samo piwo wodniste bardzo niestety, ale jest okej. Pewnie w Irlandii smakowałoby lepiej.

one of the greatest beer ever made, very tasteful, rich aroma and top notch quality. kind of expensive but it worth it to pay more for a good beer
