3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Served in a pint glass from a 440ml nitro can. Pours almost black colour which is actually an extremely dark ruby when held against the light. Once settled, a medium sized creamy beige head is formed and stays all the way through, leaving a medium lacing inside the glass. Aroma is malts, molasses and some grassy notes. Taste is molasses and very mild malts with some earthy notes, very soft bitter-sweet finish. Slick and slightly watery texture with flat carbonation, this combination makes it very quaffable. Nothing extraordinary, simple, smooth and a pleasant stout, a good thirst quencher.

The aroma of this stout was noticeably very good, but, in all other respects, this is not as good as Guinness. Somewhat watery with an inconsistent taste. It seems as is there is too much carbonation and an unidentified bitterness, not the favorable bitterness of hops.

Helt blød i smagen som en guiness. Men ellers let lakrids og ristene malte. Klassiske.

500ml can into pint. Smells of milk chocolate and cocoa. Dark dark mahogany red beer with solid cream coloured head. Quite light body, slight fruity finish with a touch of bitterness. Pleasant, easy drinking.

Can. I needed something for St. Patrick’s Day.
A: Dark mahogany with a pillowy creme color head.
N: Chocolate, coffee, minerality, bit of a lactose, roast, toast, and iron.
T: Sweet and bitter/roasty.
M: Medium light body, very creamy carbonation, no alcohol.
O: Just a nice dry Irish stout. Similar to Sam Smith’s, albeit without the body that oats can provide, and it exists for days when you don’t need a 10% ABV bomb.

This one is well documented by several others. I think the general consensus is on point.
