UPDATED: JUN 11, 2004 Much better than I gave it credit for originally. Nice opaque color with slightly off-white head. Nice and thick on the palate with roasted coffe and chocolate overtones. Great for a slap on the arse!

This stout has a wide array of flavors that can be tasted as the glass empties. Starts off with coffee and chocolate flavors, and becomes more smokey and bitter as it warms. One of my favorites. Also, about $15 cheaper per case than guinness (PDC). Could be just a little thicker and less watery.

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.

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)

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.
