duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2002
RE-rate: Prefer it to Guinness. Sweetish malty chocolate and anise aroma and palate, with a slightly dry finish. Lots of flavour, but very thin on body for a stout, highly drinkable, a great session stout, if there ever was one. Nice burnt malt flavour, and a decent amount of coffee bitterness, weak and artificial.

Despite its decent aroma, itís metallic aftertaste, gossamer body and fleeting nitro foam donít make for a substantial experience.

Canned beer. Just canít 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. Itīs not offensive, but I canīt 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 itís been overrated.

I canít 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 (1285) - 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.
