I love dark beers occasionaly. Going from a light beer to a dark beer is like going from soup to steak. Light is just swallowed. With a nice thick dark beer like guinness you gotta chew it!

Piwo jest koszmarnie wodniste. Aromat znikomy, może troszkę kawy. W smaku pustka, i delikatne nuty kawowe. Goryczka niska. Najfajniejszą częścią tego piwa jest piana na azocie.

I think, Guinness was the gateway beer that enticed many to seek out better more complex brews. Although it may be slightly bland to the microbrew connoisseur’s standards; Guinness is still a classic, and one of the best looking beers around.

kaserov (526) - Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 25, 2017
Color negro, opaco, con capa de espuma marrón de tres dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación media. Textura aparentemente cremosa pero oleosa. Aroma a tabaco y ligero café, muy mínimo. Sabor ligerísimo que mezcla tabaco, café y regaliz. Muy muy ligero y suave, no para todos los gustos (y, desde luego, no el mío). Regusto y postgusto inexistentes. Se puede beber pero no aporta.

Classical Guinness Draught beer. Very dark flavour and colour, yet lacking some more deepness. Other than the very dark, malty flavour, it’s pretty bland, yet it has a very smooth, almost creamy texture and mouth-feel, which is one of my main reasons for liking it. Not bad, but not super good either!

Zilb (269) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - APR 23, 2017
Pression au Long Hop soirée Ogp. Noire/marron comme un café au lait. Faible mousse pas de carbo. Arôme léger café (mais bue froide). Assez légère. Manque de corps et de goût. Je m’attendais à une bière plus tranchée et avec de l’amplitude.

Hop_Hedonist (559) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2017
Can - watery insipid crap - the barest lick of roasted malt - can’t believe I used to like this when I was a lad - strictly an entry level brew.

midovark (807) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - APR 18, 2017
Draught. Pours black with long lasting head. Slight coffeey roasted aroma with the same notes in taste with creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation and light body.

Klassiker. Mørke brun, næsten sort med hvidt skum. Malt og svag kaffe i duften. Let bitterhed i eftersmagen.

The classic. Had to try it, not bad, but not good enough against the coming craft beers.
