14.9 oz can. Pours a deep amber color that is almost black. Decent head with grainy aromas. Beer has smooth finish with lots of malt backbone. Soft carbonation with a light presence on the palate.

adasko (267) - Poznan, POLAND - AUG 28, 2014
It’s quite heavily carbonated. In taste and aroma it’s malty. But aroma itself is very weak. Doesn’t have this coffee sour taste and feeling. Very drinkable, watery. It’s dark seal color, non-transparent.

teddybeer (2216) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 13, 2014
Black color with a creamy and frothy tan head, good lasting and nice lacework. Aroma has notes of licorice, roasted malts and black chocolate. Flavor is mild bittery with roasted notes, some ashes, licorice and coffee beans. Light bittery final with a dry mouthfeel.

bpreo (1547) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 12, 2014
I love it. It tastes a lot like a Guinness, but with a malty/chocolaty richness inside it. It’s the (almost) perfect beer. All it needs is a bump up in alcohol content.

Draught. This was a welcome find at local Pubs in Dunbar and Belhaven. Great stout.

Metalchopz (2263) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2014
4-pack of cans at The Beer Store with the nitro widget. Pours a dark brown colour, a little darker than cola with a cascade effect that disappears quickly but forms a creamy beige head that lasts a while. Beautiful roasted malt nose giving coffee notes and nuts. Full creamy lacing follows. Still roasted malts in the taste, but watery. Very mild coffee, nuts and liquorice. Very mild. Still, an easy-drinking Scottish stout that is not too heavy, but smooth.

Jultsu (157) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2014
500ml tölkki. Iso, hitaasti tiivistyvä vaahto, hiivainen tupakkainen tuoksu. Limainen, vetelä, väljähtänyt suuruntuma. Vaahdossa aistittavissa kahvia, maku muuten oudon esanssinen, tupakkaa.

Dorqui (2105) - Brescia, ITALY - JUL 30, 2014
Canned 0,50L. Dark and deep black color, intense and creamy head of long long duration. Nice aspect. Ashed and smoked wood aroma, intense roast malty and soft alcoholic nose. Medium smooth taste, good alcoholic and bitterish palate, good and long roasty final. Ash and carbon end.

Can, Ive never had a good stout from a can, A malty, smooth stout, with a very nice aroma. My guess was that there were some oats in here, but apparently not
