UPDATED: MAR 5, 2004 I personally like this beer better than Guinness because it has a milder less bitter taste to it. It also retains the same trademark creamy head as Guinness

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2005 Rerate Not bad, just not worthy of a 3.9. Same description. Original 3.9 Widgeted induced can - typical widgeted induced pour with a thick creamy airy head. Nice black appearance. Bit of a roasted flavor to it. Detect slight coffee notes as well. Slight, sweet, chocolate aroma that I could detect. About on par with a Guinness.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 Mild aroma in a black body with an energetic head of light brown fine bubbles. Near the top of the head below the beer line a continuous flow of small bubbles can be observed. No carbonation in the taste and very smooth for a stout. Some coffee flavor but it is not overwhelming. Clinging vine lace adorns the side of the glass. It is a very nice smooth stout that I found myself liking more and more after each taste.

A bit better than Guinness Stout. Soft and mild, with a beautiful lasting, soft head.

Pours a translucent black with a very creamy head. Very light body with an equally light hop presence. Much less roasty than other dry stouts.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle) That widget thing helps make a perfect pour -- nice black body topped by a small creamy beige head. Aroma is sweet and pleasantly roasty. Taste is medium sweet and mildly roasty.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught Can - This is the most perfect-looking Irish stout I've ever seem. Perfect, creamy, long-lasting head. Smooth and roasty - you can taste the mineral salts. Zero bitterness. Better than Guinness in my book.

Draught Can: Mild, and easy drinking dry stout. A hint of smokiness and chicory, very smooth and creamy. Beautiful frothy white head.
