graziano85 (428) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 22, 2013
A black beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of roasted malt and nuts maybe. Taste the same. Better body than the draught, but maybe for an easy evening I prefer the draught.

Armadill0 (341) - FINLAND - JAN 19, 2013
Tastes like roasted barley, chocolate and coffee. Taste is strong all around, slightly bitter which I find to be a minus in this case. Still very drinkable and tasty.

fantti (954) - FINLAND - JAN 13, 2013
Kaatuu lasiin tumman colanvärisenä ja hieman valoa läpäisevänä. Vaahto on likaisen valkoinen ja iso jättäen reunuksen. Haju on paahteinen, maitoinen, marjainen, multainen ja marjapirtelöinen. Mieto maku on paahteinen, maitoinen, multainen ja hieman kahvinen. Suutuntuma on kevyt ja hieman tuhkainen. Kokonaisuutena tämä irkkutuotos on kuin maitokauppaversio, melko mieto ja harmiton. Lämmetessä tähän tulee enemmän makua ja täyteläisempi suutuntuma, etenkin mämmisyyttä nousee esiin.

Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - JAN 11, 2013
#7 Unser Irish Pub hat es mittlerweile "Straight from the Cask" und es ist einfach überragend!! Diese sämige Bitterkeit verbunden mit dieser röstigen Malzigkeit ist unerreicht! Mittlerweile gibt es diese gehaltvolle Variante leider nicht mehr, weil nur noch die irische Version am Hahn hängt, schade.

Lowenbrau (3284) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 6, 2013
A lighter version of the Irish tap one. Lacks body, much more watery, and some of the roasted flavours of the original . Quaffable, but plain and little boring.

TheCametron (2404) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 27, 2012
Bottle. Prague. Pours Deep Brown/Black with a tall and enduring tan head. A good ammount of burnt toast and some degree of coffee. Very dry. A worthwhile variation on a classic formula.

ads135 (4285) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 23, 2012
This was a nice stout, really dry, really roasted. Tastes of burned bread, chocolate and some coffee. A bit watery but in keeping with the guinness brand.
