worldbeertaste (1819) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2012
Dark brown with a soapy somewhat lasting tan head, Light carbonation. The carbonation looks like coke. Light smell of smoked malt, blackberry, coffee. Dry with a fullbody mouthfeel. Taste of roast malt that lasts. Light fruity. or maybe licorish feel. But constant. Better once the carbonation goes down.

Awful, a really bad stout, I cannot understand why it is so famous all around the world when it’s soooo bad.

prawlie (1702) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2012
500 mL bottle from Londis poured into a pint glass. Biege head over a black beer. The aroma is smokey and roasted, a bit Schlenkerla. Tastes smokey, roasted and dry with coffee at the end. Its pretty good although the novelty wears off half way down the glass.

(bottle from Ireland) black with generous tan head. Aroma of roast malt, coffee, hints of chocolate. Flavor is roast malt, coffee, hint of bitterness in the finish. Not as nice as draught Guinness in Ireland (the best way/place to drink Guinness - a properly poured pint in Ireland)
