Canned beer. Just can’t seem to get past that. This poured as a stout should, dark with a creamy tan head. Notes of coffee, smoke, molasses in the nose. The mouthfeel was rather thin and watery. The flavor was weak coffee, molasses, some chocolate, and some metallic notes. From the can?

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2004
Draft. Clear black colour, nitrogen head. Weak roastmalty aroma. Flat, roastmalty taste, with hints of coffee, ending in medium dry finish. Thinbodied. It´s not offensive, but I can´t see me drinking this again. Too bland and watery.

A great head when poured with a pretty dark brown to black color. Looks can be wrong. I thought the beer was a little on the thin side with very little hops or malt taste.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 9, 2005
Widget can: Too creamy, too artificial in appearance (but pretty), this has a nice roasted barley aroma, a bit of toastiness to it. Very smooth to drink, of course. A bit watery. Light sweetness with solid roasted tastes and a very dry finish. Not bad, but I think it’s been overrated.

I can’t fathom why experienced raters are giving this upwards of 3.6. Nitro can: Extremely thin, more so even than Guinness. Little aroma. Nice bitterness, roasty, coffee. Meh.

mephisto (1284) - TAIWAN - DEC 25, 2005
jet black nitrogen foam makes it a pretty beer. not a very firm stout that is medium bodied and creamy; it is a bit lacking in the malt profile and complexity. though this is common among these low alcohol level ales.

bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2006
On tap. Almost blach with good head. A bit too mild for my taste. But a pretty good mainstream stout.

Well, Im in Baltinglass and his is here. It a dry nitro stout, nothing to see here. Weak roast flavour, and extra cold.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - SEP 3, 2008
14.9 oz widget can. As with most of these gimmick cans, it makes for a pretty glass of beer - dark brown with a tight, creamy tan head. Roasty, burnt malt nose, hints of coffee. Ooofff... not so good flavor, like charcoal with a bit of lighter fluid, burnt and smoky. Body is the light side of medium, a bit too thin. Meh.

halfonit (1279) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 10, 2009
Pure black color with a thick dark tan head. Aroma is mainly of malts. Taste is very mellow. There’s some malt, chocolate, and slight coffee. Nothing much in the aftertaste. Similar to a Guinness but with half the flavor.
