A pint can of this (complete with ’floating widget’) was my introduction to Dry Stout. This brew pours a muddy black with red highlights. The fully lasting thin creamy brown head is the color and consistancy of a chocolate milkshake. The nose is mostly malt with hints of cookie, straw, molasses, and of course coffee/chocolate. Balanced with slightly hoppy and yeasty aromas that hint of flowers, herbs, soap and sweet dough. The flavor is moderately bitter sweet with a medium finish consisting of chocolate and coffee overtones. The flat full palate is watery/creamy with a metallic feel to the finish. Solid.

Liquid toast. Drink this with a grilled cheese sandwich. Fabulous stout!

UPDATED: APR 15, 2003 I've decided that these nitro stouts are not worth a comment. We all know what they are.

Smoother taste than Guinness, but not as thick or as rich, 2 qualities that realy hurt this beer. Same great appearance and gorgeous head though. Very good overall, half a notch below Guiness and Samuel Smiths.

A Guinness knock-off. All things being equal, Guinnes would be my choice.
