I have a sweet tooth so I may be biased but this is lovely stuff. Metallic nose. No head. Slightly bitter taste with a very sweet chocolate and extremely mild coffee noted aftertaste. Yum yum.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can from Tesco.
Appearance - thick tan head, reasonable lacing on glass, black / ruby on edge of glass, overall appearance not bad out of a can.
Aroma - weak roast, malt, dark sugars.
Taste - dark sugar, sweet bland malt, bit of cola - very little aftertaste - a bit bittersweet. Thin and watery in mouth. Not much at all but not offensive. More flavour than to be expected at 3% but flavour isnít all that great. More like a stout version of shandy - just sugar pop

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Dark brown with a tan head. Roasty aroma with some sugary malts. Sort of thin, metallic, with cheap coffee notes. Simple and industrial - not as good as the US/Caribbean XXX variant.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can - Quite surprised by this one. Pours black with the aroma giving the first hint of the sweetness to come. Smooth sweet flavour with the gentlest roast malt aftertaste.

330ml can. Pours jet black with a medium tight head. Aroma is roasted malt and sugars. Taste is very sweet, roasted malt. Quite full for the 3%. Reminds me of a Brewdog Paradox.

This drink has been a big part of our family Christmasís for over 30yrs.
Back when me & my brother were little in the 80ís our Grandmother used to let us have a cheeky little drop of this with lemonade (stout shandy) at Christmas time. Im 29 now & still drinking it at Christmas,me,my brother,one of my sisters,father,grandparents all drink it,we stocked up 28 cans this year.
Even get some bought for my birthday in October every year since i was 18.
Iíve tried making stout shandys with other top brands of stout but none of them taste as good as Mackesons,love everything about it & hope to be drinking it for many years to come! =D
