Bottle. This is the one without the Nitrogen capule, and it is quite evident on the head, which is lighter, a lot more patchy, and disappear extremely sooner than the version with nitrogen. The aroma is about the same: caffee, chocolate, karamel and burnt malt. The color is dark mahogny to silky black. Some hops in the aroma. This beer has a somewhat watery mouthfeel, and it has a CO2 bite. I think there are some earthy hints in it. I believe that the brewery can do better than this, in particular for a beer with its reputation.

kaserov (524) - Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 23, 2017
Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de tres dedos de grosor (cremosa y de buena retención). Carbonatación alta. Aroma a malta tostada, algo de café, tabaco, metal (sobre todo a medida que va atemperando). En boca es aceitosa y ligeramente efervescente, con presencia de la malta tostada y, de nuevo, el tabaco. El café se percibe pero queda en segundo plano. Final de ligerísimo amargor y regusto mínimo a cacao que le viene como anillo al dedo. Más que disfrutable esta versión de la Guinness que no había probado previamente, con más sabor que la Guinnes Draught de lata (4,2%) y menor carácter metálico.

Excelente Dry Stout. Realmente la mejor de su estilo. Con mucho cuerpo, es una cerveza de postre, para consumir con mariscos o bien con pasteles. También es buena opción para después de cenar. Café y chocolate amargo en el sabor. Presentación excelente con un color negro opaco y maltoso, y la espuma inmortal que permanece en la pinta hasta el final, la cual es perfecta. Excelente y merece la pena gastar dinero en ella.

Fules (1106) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - FEB 6, 2017
Kicsi, gyorsan elolvadó hab, fekete szín. Aszalt gyümölcsös, kakaós illat. Száraz, kissé kakaóporos és savanykás, gyümölcsös ízek, enyhe fűszerességgel. Könnyed, közepesen szénsavas, enyhén kesernyés. Iható, vékonyka stout.

nephirem (436) - CROATIA - JAN 21, 2017
Bottle, 0.33l. Pours black body with one finger beige head. Average head retention. Nice lacing. Pleasant smell, malty sweet with a touch of caramel, liquor and chocolate. Thin to medium body with aggressive carbonation. Slightly oily texture, quite nice, but would be better with softer carbonation. Bittersweet taste with slight acidity. Aroma of burnt malts, caramel, toffee. Touch of liquor. Bready. Somewhat cake-like. Dry mouthfeel. Regular finish, slightly ruined by metallic acidity. Overall, not bad but nothing to write home about either.
