I did enjoy this and I continue to be amazed by the draft quality of these beers. However, I think I still prefer Guinness or Mackeson.

I had the can ’draught flow’ version. Not bad..pretty good I guess. I had the luxury of having it beside a Guinness. No comparison. Guinness is the finest. Still, if I couldn’t find Guinness, this would be a nice alternative.

A good alternative to Guinness, with more flavor and less palate.

fishman (350) - Philadelphia, USA - JUL 19, 2001
I must first say two things, one - this is not really my type of beer, two - I tried this after a heavier scottish ale. With that in mind I found this to be quite bland and watery. It looked very nice, and had a perfect creamy head. There was an obvious sweet/stouty aroma. As the glass warmed I noticed a bit of a nutty taste but nothing substantial. As for a verdict, the jury is still out, I want to try it again, but against some of its closer competitors. (Guiness for one)

Indra (2606) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 1, 2001
I had this beer on tap; I don’t think it comes any other way around here. My first impression was, ’what does that taste like again?’ I had to try it again, and again, just to remember what it tasted like. I believe this is due to it not having much flavor. It’s nitrogenated, so any conventional palate and carbonation immediately becomes a non-factor. Smooth. A little too smooth, and not quite enough maltiness or hops in this one for me. I like my stouts bold, this one is meek.

fraternie (815) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 29, 2001
Better than most stouts due to a creamier body and less harsh of a coffee/chocolate flavor. Good stout.

Hoser99 (6) - Wyoming, BOLIVIA - MAY 13, 2001 does not count
Very similar to the big ’G’ with a touch more bitterness.

The Friar99 (222) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 20, 2001
A quality beer that you could opt for if you can’t get some Guinness. The after-taste is a little different but still very good.
