3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I believe this is the one I had in France and Spain. Served from this little plastic light up draft. Looks great, tastes a little more thin than the US version. Doesnít have that fullness I was expecting, probably from the lack of the flaked barley. Dry finish.

Tasted 2008-04-09. Bottle. Pours dark brown / black with light brown / grey / beige head. Aroma of roasted malts and coffee - weak aroma. Ditto flavours. Very wattery, but no off flavours. Somewhat uninteresting, but OK I guess.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2011 Bottle. Chocolate and smokey charcoal aroma. Dark brown color with gigantic fluffy tan head. Smokey/ashy chocolate malt flavor. Overall better than the US version but occasionally gave me the impression that someone had put cigarette ashes in it.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2008 0,33 l bottle. Black, with a lovely creamy brown head. Classic stout - very dry, with the usual roasted aromas and coffee/ dark chocolate flavors. Pure enjoyment, but the Draught version is kinda more interesting.
