DiogŤne (1068) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 16, 2006
Can from the LCBO. Creamy brown-red colour. Creamy white nitro head (Iím not a fan of nitro). no carbonation. Sweet caramel aroma. Medium body. Creamy and roasted malt flavour with caramel and some bitterness. Not my favourite brew.

This beers very creamy. It has a creamy head, reddish color and the aroma is very caramelly. This beer is a bit dry, but I think its okay.

thewolf (11490) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2006
Can. Pours wonderfully mahogany brown-red with stying creamy head. Aroma is roasted and caramelly with slight hints of berries. The dry taste adds to the caramel bitterness (not hoppy). Creamy mouthfeel.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 7, 2006
Tap. Pours a medium amber with a creamy nitro head and some lace. Aroma is light roast, some sweet caramel and almost no hops. Light sweet crystal and roasted malts in the flavor, with a light bitter finish. Not much going on in this beer, other than it was pretty smooth and easy to drink due to the nitro.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2006 Out of the can, widget present. Poured into a pint glass. Anyway, looked delicious, very inviting. Smelled sweeter than it tasted, though the flavour was still nice. Sweet still, yet bitter. Light carbonation, but it felt SO nice going down, almost like a refreshing Iced Tea. Although itís a pleasure beer I could definitely drink a few of these at a mid-summer patio party. Didnít know it was brewed in any relation to Guinness, with that in mind Iíd say if Guinness is too much for you, get this. Diet Guinness, Guinness lite, whatever you want to call it. Very nice.

On tap at the Dukeís of Argyle, in Toronto. Very nice head and colour. Sweet and creamy. Taste of nuts and caramel.

This was simply Smithwickís on nitrogen (nice head that coated / laced the ENTIRE glass as I consumed) with a slightly more bitter aftertaste. I enjoy Smithwickís and cream ales, but combining the two either lost something (the increased bitterness), or the single order Iíve tasted just wasnít a good one. Iíd order this one again, but if it tastes the same, Iíll stick with Smittyís as my session beer.

(Tap) Pours coppery brown with small beige head. Taste is slightly roasted and moderately bitter. Medium, creamy body. A pretty decent beer.
