on tap-pours a deep, rich, tan head that laces nicely. Color is black, with the white rivulets condensing. Aroma is coffee and malt. Taste is coffee. Nicely done, but not my taste.

thewolf (11495) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2007
Can. Pours almost black with slight red mahogany edges. It always looks so cool when the grey-brown bubbles floculate when pouring, ending as the creamiest, most staying head in history. Aroma is, as always, mildly sweet, with a roasted edge. Flat and creamy mouthfeel, letting the beer glide down easily. Flavour begins sweet, then gets more roasted, and thus, bitter. Dry and creamy, sweet and roasted.

imdownthepub (11393) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2003
Keg, Pasteurised. We all know what it loos like but the flavour has definitely become thinner over the years. There is still the dry, coffee like almost powdery mouthfeel. There is a treacely finish, but ultimate experience, I think not!

Lubiere (11170) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2008
A dark clear brown stout with a creamy nitro light moka head. A light chocolate malt aroma, coming more clearly as beer warms up (served way too cold). In mouth, a nice peaty malt, roasted notes, especially when imbibing the foam. Lighter bodied, but overall, much superior to what we get in Canada. On tap at O’Neill’s, terminal 3, Heathrow. Mid Nov. 2006.

bierkoning (11147) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2004 Typical creamy lasting head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Very bitter. Little bit of apple fruitiness and milk well hidden behind the typical dry stout taste. Guinness is best fresh from tap in Dublin, but this can is not a bad substitute. 8 4 7 3 14 =3.6 Tap: Finneganís in Hengelo. As it should be: bitter, roasted malt, smooth and creamy. Thin and even a bit watery, in spite of the creaminess. Still a great session beer.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2013 Bottle and draft. Pours dark brown with creamy tan head. Nose and taste of creamy mocha, burnt chocolate malt and light roast. Creamy mouthful. Body is wafer thin.

madsberg (10787) - SÝborg, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2004 Draught: Rerate: When it's served properly, for me it's one of the greatest beers to look at. Has an almost black colour with a huge creamy chocolatehead. The aroma and flavour is slightly roasted and have notes of chocolate. A slightly bitter aftertaste, that last long. Still a great beer, but not as great as i used to think.
Original rate 4.6: It's difficult to imagine, that stout beer can be made better.
