I've tasted only a few stouts in my life (and I have never been too satisfied); maybe I'll have to re-rate it as I develop a taste for this kind of brews. Smell of chocolate and toffe. Long lasting, small, creamy brown head. A bit sweet initially, becomes more bitter and dry when going down.

The best thing with this stout is its nice capuccino-like head (due to draughtflow system, of course). But, unfortunately, it turned to be very thin and lifeless example of the style. Too watery to my taste.

A great looking beer, no doubt about that - and it smells even better. But will I ever love the taste of a Stout-beer??? I doubt it!!! Simply to bitter for me!!!

Overall good stout, similar to Guinness, but with more aftertaste, seems to be like burnt malt.

Opaquely black in colour, with the fantastic tan head straight from the widget can! Very subtle smell with hints of malt. The taste is a little bitter, but an all-around great taste with a somewhat smokey aftertaste!

Well, I don’t drink this kind of beer to often. It was warming, bitter but it seemed a bit boring. Thanks Doug!

Creamier and not as sweet as Guinness, which is fine by me. Now if they could get rid of the soapiness....

My favorite of the widget canned stouts. I love the Guinness but this stout takes the cake. More creamy and not quite as bitter as the standard.

A decent stout that is good to retry every once in a while. However, I find that there are better "nitro" beers than this one, like, guinness. A decent beer to try, but only that. If you're a fan of stouts then go or it.
