Kosmokrator (849) - - AUG 2, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2015 Denso color nero con deboli riflessi rossastri in controluce, spesso cappello di schiuma beige. Aroma caffettoso con note di cappuccino, cereali e malti abbrustoliti; gusto mediamente amaro con un finale lungo e asciutto che richiama gli aromi. Effervescenza gentile, corpo medio, struttura oleoso-cremosa... un piacevole classico!

La birra è gradevole. La carbonazione è moderata ma non da fastidio al palato. Al naso si sente un po di lievito, un po di alcool e un po di caramello, legno bruciato e cola. Sul palato l'odore dell alcool e di lievito che si sentivano prima scompaiono, e fanno posto alla liquirizia e al legno bruciato. Si sente anche un po (quasi impercettibile) di affumicatura. La birra l ho trovata un po acquosa alla metà del sorso. Inizialemete il sapore è dolce ma subito subentra un amaro piacevole che rimane anche dopo qualche secondo dopo il sorso. Una birra non male, che si può bere.

SashaRu1 (10) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 6, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2017 Too gaseous, waterish, was worse than Primator Stout from bottle. Obviously capsule in a can does the trick to be closer to draught real Guinness

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2017 Meget flot i glasset: sort med brunt skum. Lukket i næsen. Smager overraskende mildt. Brød og malt. Tør finish.

Bought from Sanchez Romero in Madrid. Appears pitch black with a creamy head. It has aromas of oats, malt, barley, cacao, It is thick and creamy with notes of dark chocolate, coffee, toast, and oats. Nice and bitter but not overly bitter, just as expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Piepenhenrich (1229) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2017
What more can be said about one of the most famous beers on this planet? I do particularly love the relatively strong flavor of licorice. Good from the bottle, but from tap it is and remains to be one of my alltime pub favorites with its creamy head and texture and its utmost perfection when it comes to malty and licorice flavors.
