Looks better in appearance than taste. Low alcohol (almost disappointingly watery) and smooth but not very deep palate. Decent head retention. Ok but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500ml can. A major disappointment. Too watery, boring and bland. Nothing interesting going on.

Muito boaaa... só achei pouco encorpada, pouco espumosa. Mas desce fácil dá pra tomar várias numa boa

ljthiessen (695) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 11, 2015
On tap at King's Head Pub, Winnipeg. Classic nitro pour, thick light beige head. Very light, a little bit of dark fruit, pretty boring.

Estebanik (160) - Lublin, POLAND - APR 10, 2015
Strasznie wodnisty, wydaje się gorszy od Guinessa. Jakaś tam paloność w smaku jest i prawie nic poza tym.

arminjewell (8582) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2015
Pour on tap at Old Chicago, nitro pour reddish black pour with creamy tan head, aroma brought notes of cocoa, roast, sweet malts with a hint of spice. Taste was a mix of bread, toast, caramel, roast, coffee, slight cocoa, finishing slightly sweet, dry.

Senka (883) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 23, 2015
50cl can. Various brews over the last several years. Pours clear black with thick soft creamy head that stays. Head retention is on of the best. Iron and burnt malt in taste. Reminds of a creamy bitters. Slightly sour and acidic. I do not mind that. A good drink when served around 8degC. Medium bodied and smooth. Reminds of John Smiths.

puredelusion (127) - Lviv, UKRAINE - MAR 22, 2015
0,5 can. Pours black colour with medium off-white creamy, long-lasting head. Aroma of cacao, chocolate , roasted malt. Non-transparent body. Light sweet and very smooth flavour with light coffee, chocolate notes. Aftertaste is dry and roasted malt, coffee bittersweet that comes with a little delay. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Better than Guinness.
