1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours like a Guinness would. Foamy and churning out of the can. Light coffee, malt and cream. Pretty watery though. Not much flavor. Good looking crappy beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Transfer from BA review on 10-14-13-
Poured from nitro can into a Guinness pint glass
Appearance- The beer pours a reddish tinted cola color with tons of cream colored carbonation/nitro bubbles suspended within. The bubbles can be seen cascading up through the brew, producing that wonderful look of nitro tap brew. As the carbonation/nitro streams up through the brew, it produces a wonderfully thick and creamy looking cream colored head that has a fantastic level of retention. The head very slowly fades leaving a nice level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell Ė The aroma is rather light overall and consists of some caramel and a bit of roasted malt. Along with these smells are some notes of grain and a little bit of a cocoa and fruit smells.
Taste Ė The taste begins with a creamy roasted malt flavor and a bit of a light fruit sweetness. As the flavor moves on the sweetness initially fades with some more toasted malt flavors coming to the tongue. Flavors of toast and a bit of coffee come to the tongue more toward the end, combining with a very light resurgence of sweetness to produce and overall dry and lightly roasted flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel Ė The body of the beer is on the creamier side with a carbonation/nitro level that is slightly lower. Both are what would be expected for a nitro driven brew and make for a nice creamy and smooth feel.
Overall Ė A decent stout, but doesnít live up to the original. Itís a bit sweeter and a bit less roasted. Still it is rather nice, none the less, and very easy drinking.

"I didnít read the can and donít get the point of this beer. As I am less a fan of the original Guinness, draft, etc... And this seems like a slightly lighter in color and roast version of the regular beer. Nice malt backbone, smooth but watery, like a nitro amber stout hybrid. Once will be enough for me."

Not a stout. Don't believe the label, it is an Irish Red Ale and a particularly bland one. Not happy with this at all.

Pours black with a ruby tint and a creamy tan head. Nice roasted malt and sweet caramel malt aroma. Flavor is roasted malt and chocolate with caramelized sugars. Finish is smooth with a slight citrus bite. Silky smooth mouthfeel.

Pours a nice dark amber color with white head. Roasted malts on the nose with just a bit of caramel on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes very roasty. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can, nitro. Pours a very clear dark reddish brown color with a moderate light tan head on it. Nose has a lot of grains and a slight bit of bread to it, but I donít get much roasting to it. Taste is slightly dry up front, then descends into a moderately sweet finish. Feels super creamy and smooth from the nitro, though just a tad thin. Decent.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can, deep red nitro pour. Settles with thick nitro head and ruby hued beer. Aroma is watery malts and the flavor is pretty much the same. Not a whole lot going on here. Really bland.

Can. Pours a deep black that fades to a little red tone. Same consistency as Guinness. Taste is similar but maybe a little lighter. Decent

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
14.7oz can. The aroma is fairly sweet with plenty of toffee character. A little caramel, but mostly toffee. Transparent amber body with a nitrogenated, soft, off-white head. Way too light in color if theyíre going to call this a stout (itís not, itís an Irish Ale). Starts with a bit of a strange metallic character, before some moderately sweet, mineral-like flavors come through in the middle. Some husks and graininess come in late. This is inoffensive enough, but like I said earlier, this is more of an Irish Ale or a Mild Ale than a stout.
