muzzlehatch (4464) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 26, 2001
Appearance: nice thick solid head atop an opaque body that seems rather thinnish when pouring. Nose: kind of weak, but nice smokiness, chocolate are noticeable. Flavor: dry, slightly smoky, bit of sugar and chocolate; nice but not distinctive. Rather thin in the mouth and a bit harsh going down. Certainly palatable, but Guinness and many others are better. (nitro can version)

Lost plenty of overall impression points for being too thin. I think Murphy’s is eve thicker. I’ve had this on tap in a pub and from the bottle. Unremarkable, I prefer any Guinness to this. This is very well-balanced, highly chugable, and woth every penny, but it’s really not worth writing hom about. If you’ve had the new Guinness in the bottle with the ’rocket widget’, and liked it, you’ll enjoy this one too.

Terrific Stout. Love the head. Very drinkable.

Impressive stout- relatively inexpensive too. Nice head, and great flavor.

joet (2520) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - NOV 3, 2001
Despite its decent aroma, it’s metallic aftertaste, gossamer body and fleeting nitro foam don’t make for a substantial experience.

opiate (199) - Sandy, Utah, USA - NOV 3, 2001
A damn good stout. I liked this even better than Guinness. A touch richer and had a great chocolate flavor.

birraguy99 (17) - Campana,Bs. As., ARGENTINA - OCT 31, 2001
Very good stout, good body, color and aroma. Bitterness at an ideal balance.

BEERFINDER99 (2) - PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2001 does not count
VERY GOOD STOUT, ALOT SMOOTHER THAN GUINESS, AND NOT AS BITTER

canary dog (732) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - OCT 25, 2001
Typical widget beer (I am rating the canned version): smooth and soft, but not much in the flavor department. Seems a little weaker than Guinness.

Properly done stout, but no inspiration in it. It’s Norman Rockwell when you want Monet. Smooth but lacks richness.
