This beer is one delicous brew! Nice dark black-brown appearance with a nice big head that leaves lotsa lace,and a killer taste that has that little extra kick to it!

(Bottle from Swedish Systembolaget) Chocolate aroma, sweet as well. Look is black with a brown head, lasts long. Taste is sweet chocolate, but no surprises or anything interesting. Pretty much plain boring and sweet..

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Courtesy of oh6gdx. Thanks, Pat. Aroma is roasty and (to my suprise) slightly smoky, smelling a bit like a freshly stamped campfire still covered in settling dirt and dust. Body is flat black and holds a mostly lasting thumb thick tan head. Tastes thinner than the Guinness brewed in Canada and has some of that slight smoke in the flavor echoing the smell in the aroma. Lacks some of the dark fruit notes in the American version as well. Drier and more abrupt in the finish.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2006 one of the three beers I found on a new liquor store. I expected it to be better. A bit light and watery but the taste is pretty good.

Lightweight and watery compared to many stouts from micro brewers - despite this being "the original". Some coffee taste, but rather boring.

[Bottled] Transparently black, rich rocky head. Fruity aroma with some plums. Dry and very roasty. Tar and coffee are evident. Clean mouthfeel, fairly light body. Tarry finish with lingering bitterness.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Dark ruby red colour with big foamy white head. Aroma of roasted malts. Flavour is strong roasted malts along with vegetables. Quite boring, watery and sweet stout.

Looks really good with it´s light brown, creamy head. The aroma is nice with a little touch of chocklate and toasted nuts.
Easy to drink.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. This is the one without the Nitrogen capule, and it is quite evident on the head, which is lighter, a lot more patchy, and disappear extremely sooner than the version with nitrogen. The aroma is about the same: caffee, chocolate, karamel and burnt malt. The color is dark mahogny to silky black. Some hops in the aroma. This beer has a somewhat watery mouthfeel, and it has a CO2 bite. I think there are some earthy hints in it. I believe that the brewery can do better than this, in particular for a beer with its reputation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,33 cl bottle. Very expensive. Smooth and refereshing, with slightly fruit flavour and sweet, creamy foam. Due to standing in glass and getting warmer, developes a rather unpleasent, bitter taste.
