biilz (280) - SPAIN - JAN 17, 2018
Аромат приятный, не типичный для любого стаута. Пена тонкая, светло коричневая. Цвет темный. Пиво очень мягкое, буквально нежный кофейный оттенок плавно переходит в пряно-черно сливное послевкусие. Алкоголь и крепость напитка не ощущается и вовсе. Конечно пиво не такое богатое на вкус как его старшие братья, но всем тем кому не по нраву яркая сухость и кофейная горечь классического стаута, этот напиток придется по нраву.Уверен в этом.

GregMooreNH (265) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 16, 2018
Pours dark ruby mahogany with thick, foamy head. Aroma is roast, chocolate and a hint of honey. Taste is sweet caramel and herbal notes, warming to chocolate and roast and finishing with nutty flavor. A really good stout.

3.1
nuplastikk (6514) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 12, 2018
11.2oz bottle as Antwerpen Stout. Brown-black body. Off-white/beige head. Rather fruity, raisin tones. Full bodied, really reminds me on an island stout. Not really much finesse, I would hope this actually isn't what is on the low countries market, and was brewed gimmickly for the US market. Too sugary. Not that impressive.

3.7
mmmeinike (382) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2018
Dark brown almost black with a light brown creamy head. Aroma is sweet malt, brown sugar, fruit, coffee and chocolate. Taste of roasted malt, caramel, dark fruit, chocolate, licorice and coffee.

2.6
ElDesmadre (3984) - Mikołów, POLAND - JAN 2, 2018
Bottle, early 2017. Buttery-toffee aromas, light sulphury egg notes, dried and light smoked plum, red fruit esters, subtle licorice. Light, almost lactic tartness in the flavour, where it gets more (dried) fruity and the licorice gets stronger. Sort of a letdown, light flawed beer with a disappointing aroma.

3.5
pleispleis (226) - Maccagno, ITALY - JAN 1, 2018
bottiglia 33 cl, schiuma fine color cappuccino persistente, colore marrone intenso quasi nero, al naso caffè malto tostato liquirizia, in bocca malto tostato caffè cioccolato fondente, carbonatazione leggera, corpo rotondo, lieve acidula, alcool ben bilanciato, amaro moderato. Più piacevole della famosa sorella minore 01.01.18

4.2
kapusil (1563) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 31, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2017 0.5l can. Black body with a huge light briown head. Carbonated with CO2 so no usual cascading effect after the pour. The roasted malts are pronounced, but it has way less of the coffee aroma and taste than the regular Guinness. This one also has more dark fruity and raisin-like character. A bit of floral hops, chocolate and some spicy yeast appears too to make the beer more complex. Very nice.

JuanCC (162) - Valencia, SPAIN - DEC 30, 2017
Botella en 99Cervezas. Vierte en marrón castaño con abundante formación de espuma color café, con burbuja mediana y grande de persistencia media y cierta adherencia. De intensidad media en nariz, da notas suaves de café torrefacto y melaza. También hay algo de chocolate al fondo conforme se va atemperando y un punto de limón. Complejidad media-baja. Atención, mejora mucho en nariz si dejas que se atempere. De entre los sabores básicos destaca el dulce y el punto cítrico así como un amargo de fondo que va creciendo conforme la cerveza se acumula en la boca. El resultado es muy equilibrado y agradable. El postgusto trae café del tiempo (frío con una rodaja de limón) y también regaliz. Inicialmente no parece tener una gran intensidad en boca, pero se viene arriba conforme pasa el tiempo y acabas siendo realmente expresiva. De cuerpo medio-alto y textura entre untuosa y frizante. Carácter más bien cálido. Buena persistencia y final de café. Mejor en boca que nariz, una cerveza con carácter pero fácil de beber. Conviene dejar que se atempere. Bastante diferente a la Guinness a la que estamos acostumbrados. Muy recomendable.

Black with a tan head and a dark chocolate, sweet coffee nose. Malty and creamy with a dark chocolate, espresso finish.
