a silky pour, a glass of umber-edged darkness; microscopic tiny bubbles make a foam as thick as grueyere cream. very toasty aroma, with hints of something between dark chocolate and licorice, tho very dry and not at all fruity. the palate too is creamy smooth, perhaps overly smooth. thin bodied, almost watery; slight bitter finish. fun, but more show than go. gimme a rogue shakespeare!

Smoother than Guinness but not bad by all means. A very well crafted stout.

So smoothe and creamy. I named my car after it. :)

BrainBug99 (12) - USA - FEB 6, 2002
Weak nose, nice creamy head, nice combination of coffee and bitter, however just a little too much bitter for me. I would have to go for Beamish Stout over Guinness.

Dragonblaze99 (353) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2002
Malty and roasted, nice coffee and bitter taste, but a little thin-bodied to my taste. Yet better than Guinness.

Better than Guinness, just. Still too thin and burnt for my taste. Will not buy again

Northernbrewer (151) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 23, 2002
Roasted coffee with a grainy edge. A mild body and low bitterness make this light and drinkable. I still don’t like nitro dispensed beers in can or on draft, but this is still a good session beer and a bit more interesting than the dominant Guinness

TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 18, 2002
Comparable to Guinness in appearance but without the strong aftertaste. One of my favorite stouts. Smooth flavor and a creamy head.

Still has a way to go to surpass the experience that is a Guinness.
