Svart och fin med gräddigt lattefärgat skum. Lite vattning med en lätt metallisk smak. Svag smak av kaffe. En lite lättare stout än sin storebror Guinness.

mzaar (1959) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2013
På fat. I det närmaste helt svart med det där fantastiska smutsvita, mjölkiga skummet som endast en perfekt upphälld stout har. Så nära perfektion man kan komma. Dofter och smaker av karamell, choklad, kaffe och honung. Gräddig och len munkänsla.

I have not been able to find this beer for quite some time, but it is great. I did a blind tasting at a pub in Ireland between the three and Beamish came out on top. It has a little more roast than Guinness but is just as smooth. I love it!

DrStrangelove (75) - ITALY - JUN 29, 2013
Draught @ Rose&Crown. Dark color with a very dense, creamy, long lasting white head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, roasted malt. Very smooth and creamy in the mouth. Not too watery. Ends with a mild dry bitterness. Very pleasant, one of my favorite stouts.

fiammanghilla (769) - Genova, ITALY - JUN 17, 2013
Spina @ Rose & Crown. Scura che in controluce fa vedere riflessi rubino, schiuma marroncina finissima e pannosa. Tostatura leggera, molto bevibile.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 9, 2013
The head is robust, the body black. It smells a bit roasty, darkmalty, less hoppy, bit coffee. The taste is mild, bit roasty, creamy, bit malty. Ok but for me a bit to mild in the taste. 14/10/9/10/-/10

En trevlig stout. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, choklad, toner av kaffe, örter och kakao. Lätt kropp med en bitter chokladbeska.

Creedence (286) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2013 Draught and can on many, many occasions. (But for the purpose of this rating, Cyprus Avenue.) Pours a beautiful deep murky brown-black with a thick off-white nitro head. Aroma is somewhat lost through head, but I can still get roasty cereals, bitter chocolate and molasses. Taste is a light sweetness with a big bitter kick, just as you want in a stout. Perfectly smooth and slick palate with a nice full body and a lingering bitter finish. A beautiful stout, packed full of flavour and complexity for a nitro. Comfortably the best of the 3 major brands of stout, and my go to beer in most bars in Cork. Marvelous.
