3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 L Draught. Black with thick, stable light brown foam. Flavour was initially nicely bitter and full, but the aftertaste became watery. Not my favourite Irish stout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bought this in the 14.9 oz "draughtflow system" can..brewed inUK by Whitebread.
Pours a lovelly dark coffee brown almost pitch black , with a nice sized tannish head after the cascade has settled
Pretty good aroma of roasted malts..smells like a strong colombian coffee does early on a Monday morning..good!!
Now the taste I found to be a little thin and watery..but the after taste is still good nice coffee..cream..some hops ok.
Very smooth as would be expected in the mouth.
Very drinkable stuff
Good Irish stout though not as good as Beamish..on par with Guiness Draught.

Dark, black color, thick creamy tan head. Roasted malty flavor with a nice hint of bitterness. Sweet, roasty, and slight bitter finish. Good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black color with a nice lasting creamy brownish head. Aroma is cocoa. Flavor is cocoa as well, not much bitterness. Maybe a little thin to be a stout.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2006 I am trying thos again after a couple years. From a nitro can. The body poured with a very black color and a nice light khaki colored head. The light aroma has some coffe, chocolate and cooked sweet potatoes. The taste was light coffee with some notes of metal and some very light dark chocolate. I get the feeling this is superior without the nitro. The mouthfeel is thin and lifeless.

This dark brew had a grand head and lacing with a toasty chocolate or fudge aroma. Medium bodied and super creamy, with tasteful chocolate and coffee flavors and a dryish finish. Perhaps slightly sweeter than the Guinness version but otherwise of equal quality.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
"Draught" - The widget popped and took away my flavor. I paid for that too. Standard looking widget induced head (creamy, tall, lasting, off-white). Aroma is subtle due to the tiny bubbles, but I ferreted out some roast. Seemed flat (due to the small bubbles). Dry with a light roasty finish and fruit lingering. Qualities seem OK, but the quantities of those are just too low.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught Can. Looks great when you pour - nice waterfall, then settles to a thick, creamy head. Smells fruitier than I would have thought. Watery. Not much to distinguish itself.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cascading mocha to black body, creamy nitro head. Light aroma of coffee and chocolate. Virtually no carbonation, tastes like coffee beans. Very smooth. Pretty good stuff.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black with dark amber edges and a widget-induced cream head. Has properties of mocha and soy sauce. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. A nice alternative to Guinness available in many bars.
