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

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.

Dark red color, big creamy tan nitro head. Burnt wood, little roast and a familiar sweet caramel note in the nose. Body is caramelly sweet with a touch of piney hops. Finishes thin and lightly roasty. The widget doesn’t do this beer any justice, a bit disgustingly sweet for me.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2003 taste consists of thin soapy chocolatey malt body followed by vegemite on burnt toast. slightly sour, like guinness, which i dont mind in a lambic but prefer to do without in a stout. but at least it's not sweet.

Is everyone here fucking nuts?! If you are drinking this from a can, it is neither a great stout or even a decent stout. The flavor is weak and thin along with the body. This is completely a cardboard cut out of a good stout. Sure it looks great but hell does that matter when it tastes like roasted water? This is not what a stout should taste like. Even Guinness from a can is terrible. Aurther Guiness would be rolling in his grave right now if he knew what they were doing to Irish stout by putting a nitrogen widget in them. Nitrogen=thin, bland beer with beautiful creamy bland head. I’ll pass.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2003 Black in color with a huge creamy tan head, weak roasty aroma, bland and weak flavor, it is thin and watery, yet has a creamy mouthfeel from the nitro, overall very bland and flavorless, not much going on here, pretty much just like the bland Guinness.

I’m not sure if this was nitro or not--had it on tap--but it sure looked and felt like it. Kind of smoky and a litttle bitter but otherwise just dark water. Everyone thought I was a hardcore beer master for drinking this (’do you want a spoon with that?’), but there’s really not much too it. Guinness holds a slight edge in the watery stout category.

Nice dark stout in a pint glass. Not much of an aroma. A light watery tasteing beer, for a stout. A nice finish of a malty falvor though.

From a can. Dark brown with thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and coffee. Smooth, but very watery with a bad bitter aftertaste. Pretty much bottom of the barrel as far as stouts go.
