Es la competencia directa de la Guinness. Igual, pero con menos alcohol y más contenido en el envase.

10-NOV-2013, draft @La Gazzetta in Bologna. Fantastic serving. 2 cm lasting, most dense tan head. Actually everlasting head. Slightly roasted with coffee and caramel. Creamy with almost no carbonation or bitterness makes it very easy drinking.

one of my favorites served in a 14.9 oz draught can, smoother and more of a creamy head than Guiness, hints of chocolate and a nice finish

A typical Irish stout similar to a Guinness. Really chocolately and easy to drink. Pours dark black in color and smells chocolately. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black with creamy head. Roasted coffee and chocolate. Medium sweetness, light bitterness. Very Guinness-like, but lighter and less bitter. Still enjoyable.
