Smoother taste than Guinness, but not as thick or as rich, 2 qualities that realy hurt this beer. Same great appearance and gorgeous head though. Very good overall, half a notch below Guiness and Samuel Smiths.

A Guinness knock-off. All things being equal, Guinnes would be my choice.

This is pretty much a carbon copy of the canned Guinness, so it has all the same strenghts and weaknesses. I would always choose a draught over a can but this is great for home use. That widget definitely has a Pavlovian effect on me. I salivate now whenever I hear it. If Budweiser ever figures that out I am in trouble.

OK, we all know that nitroíd stouts look great. Beyond that, what do they offer? Not much in my estimation. Absolutely NO aroma other than metal on this puppy. Thick creamy head (duh) and a black, opaque body. Watery up front; nutty in the middle; finishes with a roasted nut flavor and fairly bitter. Thin and generally bland. Nothing to write home about and I wonít be going out of my way to find this. I wonít even drink it again if it IS in my way.

Is everyone here fucking nuts?! If you are drinking this from a can, it is neither a great stout or even a decent stout. The flavor is weak and thin along with the body. This is completely a cardboard cut out of a good stout. Sure it looks great but hell does that matter when it tastes like roasted water? This is not what a stout should taste like. Even Guinness from a can is terrible. Aurther Guiness would be rolling in his grave right now if he knew what they were doing to Irish stout by putting a nitrogen widget in them. Nitrogen=thin, bland beer with beautiful creamy bland head. Iíll pass.
