I have found my little piece of heaven with Kilkenny. I am a real fan of dark beers and at first taste Kilkenny did not seem to measure up, but now it has become my beer of choice. Smooth, understated taste.

IMtheOptimator (1164) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - JUN 26, 2006
Tap at the Shamrock in St. Petersburg. Poured copper red with a large creamy white head... obviously nitro-induced. Faint caramel and butter aroma. Taste is very light caramel, little hop flavor. Watery nitro body. Blah.

Dedollewaitor (15325) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2006
on tap at "Carlsens Skvatter" (Odense) Mahogany brown with a fine creamy head. However the texture is also like in guiness basically watery. Low carbonation. Finish is quite malty and anonymous!

Diogène (1143) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 16, 2006
Can from the LCBO. Creamy brown-red colour. Creamy white nitro head (I’m 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 (11878) - 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 (5074) - 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.
