IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 24, 2010
Can. Pour is mostly dark with a light tan head. Aroma is somewhat sweet with some roasty and milk chocolate aroma. Flavor is nice and subtle, with smooth notes of chocolate, burnt toast, and sweet malt. Nice brew. Kicks that ass of guiness draft any day flavorwise.

oliodnb (136) - ITALY - APR 19, 2014
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 33cl bottle, Italy. Label says 5 instead of 4.3 ABV. Black with a foamy head, different from the fine, creamy one of the draught Guinness. Aroma and taste are also different, sweeter and less toasted. Some coffee and hops in the finish.

edsspoon (141) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Pours black with a thick fluffy, light brown head and some good lacing. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and caramel with a hint of smoke. Taste of coffee, roasted malt, cocoa and a mild earthy bitterness. Minerally and slightly sweet. Unfortunately this leaves a lot to be desired, itís not that good.

InPivoVeritas (196) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark brown with thick tan head. Aroma of dark malts and dark bread with light roasty note. Carbonation a bit too high. Body medium-low. Itís OK, nothing more.
