16 oz can poured into a nonic pint. Pours a dark brown/black with a 1 finger creamy white nitrogen head. Aroma is burnt malts. Taste is the same, with some burnt coffee taste with an astringent aftertaste. Very light mouthfeel. Looks very sexy in the glass, but average in every other aspect. Good for the dry stout style.

Brewed with more coffe malts than "the mother" of all Irish stout this beer has a more micro brewed flavor. The nitrogen generated head color and aroma are great and makes this beer a more than acceptable option to other Irish stouts on the market.

From tap at Krambua, Trondheim. Dark brown. Uneven, pale brown head. Aroma of dark caramel, dark malt and chocolate. Similar faste. A bit wagerish.

Wow, I was totally surprised how much I liked this. Maybe not the most complex brew ever, delicious and balanced, dosent try too hard and does good its thing. Im starting to like more and more these kind of fairly priced "normal beers" as opposed to somtimes over-hyped, over priced cult beers, that often are imo all over the place with just too much that, too much this. Keep it simple...

Draft at Fibber Magee’s. The aroma features burnt biscuit, musty cardboard and old newspaper; it’s that typical nitro dry stout tinge that plagues many Irish-style pubs that likely rarely clean their draft lines. Pours flat black and is topped by a two-finger perfectly even tan head that hold ups for a millennium. There are precious few brews prettier than a properly poured Irish stout on nitro and this pint was just that. The taste is rather subdued: a roasted maltiness is the primary flavor with dry cereal grains, faint stake cocoa, more astringency than I prefer, and a touch of bitter almond. Light body with a extremely dry woodsy finish. Other than the appearance, it is a strikingly average example of the style.
