Could this be the perfect beer? A creamy head with a chocolate body...Very Very good Beer. No complaints.. I prefer over Guinness which is pretty good itself.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2018 Wygląda oczywiście genialnie, z kremową pianą z azotem, niczym słynny Guiness. Aromat również nie jest zły. W smaku wyraźna paloność i kwaskowość, ale zrównoważone, bo piwo ma dość kremową teksturę. Gazu nie ma praktycznie w ogóle. Dzięki temu wszystkiemu piwo jest pełne ale bardzo pijalne.

Ciemno brązowe, piana na azocie . W smaku wyraźna kawa , chociaż samo piwo bardzo ułożone i gładkie . Generalnie ciekawsze niż Guinness

Ciemnobrunatne, zamglone, piana kość słoniowa, bardzo drobne pęcherzyki, zostawia ładny lacing. W aromacie kawa, estry, słód, jęczmień. W smaku kwaskowe, gruszkowe i jabłkowe estry, palony jęczmień, kawa, kakao. Goryczka bardzo niska, chmielowa i palona. Wysycenie jest, niewielkie. Gładziutkie. Dobrze pijalne.

Dark brown red beer, small head. Aroma is lightly roasted, not much some coffee. Taste is the same, roasted, malt, chocolate, bitter sweet, not bitter, light but very drinkable.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2017 Lovely creamy stout that I always used to buy because the local offy would have 4 cans of it for £3. Those were the days! A bit mild for my tastes these days, but not a brew that I will ever forget. Never had on draught, only in cans with the widget.

kapusil (1558) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 16, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2017 On a nitro keg. Black body with a creamy beige head. Strong roasted malt and coffee character with notes of sour cherry, chocolate and cream. Medium body with a creamy texture. Great stout.

Demens (518) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 29, 2017
0,5l can. Very dark, black colour with ever lasting creamy beige head. Beutiful. Aroma: Caramel, roasted coffee beans, sweet chedar notes. Taste: Has a very malty, roasted start with a light bitter mouthfeel. Medium body with no carbonation at all. Medium lasting soft and pleasent bitter finish. Feels a bit weak becouse of the lack of carbonation, but tasty and a good drink.

From Dec 2006 Poured from 16oz can(nitro) avery dark brown with reddish hues and a large head of foam. The smell is very light but I can sense some roasted malt. The taste has some nice roastiness to it with a touch of sweetness. The finish has a semi bitter taste to it that is quite pleasant. Good sessionable Irish Dry Stout and I like it a lot...I could drink it all day. ;^)
