thanatosti (1618) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2012
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Coop. Pours black with a huge tan head. Faint aroma of roasted malts. Taste of roasted malts en a hint of when you bite on the end of a pencil, a mix of wood and graphite, a bit ashlike. LIvely carbonation and a rather short aftertaste.

Bottle shared with McTapps. A bit watery but still coffe-like. Too much carbo but enjoable and recommendable.

McTapps (6773) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - AUG 16, 2012
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Quite airy texture of foam, not as creamy as known. Typical taste of coffee with a gentle bitterness, but all together very smoothy.

33 cl. bottle from Systembolaget, Luleå, 27.7.2012. Black with a massive, creamy beige head. Aroma with dark roasted malts, whisky, tar, coffee and a sweetness from dark, candid sugar. Taste is light bitter. Medium body with sticky texture. Finishes with lots of roasted malts, coffee and a hint of ash. A classic stout.

johndoughty (5291) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2012
Bottle.Tried during our holiday in Croatia August 2012. Not as bitter as the versions i have tried in the uk. Much smoother but still with that unique Guinness flavour. Very easy to drink on a delicious warm evening. One I will remember.

Bottle. Almost black with a large slightly tan head. Aroma and taste of light roasted malt, ash, malt and some coffee. Rather bitter finish. Thin and not that exciting.

worldbeertaste (1800) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2013 Dark brown with a lasting brown lacy head. Smells of roasted chocolate malt with sugar, nut and smoked malt. Medium Frothy body. Taste of roasted grain almost burnt, nut and a dry bitter roast finish. Some elements of fruitiness like blackberry. I like the dryness.
