Nitro-can. Head settles out beutifully. Nice aroma. Taste is average. Much better room temp. (or close).

$4.00 for the can consumed at State Street Cafe. I asked a pint, and it unmistakably poured an oily Harry Potter hair black, with which a sudsy, off-white head 2 fingers in length stood. Tastes and smells of roasted barley aged hops, wet cardboard, denim jeans, DME, and London yeast. Charcoal and sweat experienced by swallow. Although creamy and smooth,it produced such bittersweet, stale flavors. Could be better, could be worse. Like everyone else, I prefer Guinness.

BierMeHoos (93) - Maryland, USA - AUG 25, 2014
15 oz can. Aroma is cream, dry roasty malts, some bread notes. Taste is creamy body with roasted malt with a slightly sweet note. Fairly subtle finish. Body is a dark amber/black with a thick creamy nitrogen head that retains very well. Pretty decent but didn't love it as much as other folks.

(Dose) Es hat eine sehr dunkelbraune, undurchsichtige Farbe mit einer cremigen bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist röstig, mit etwas Kaffee und Butterscotch. Der Geschmack ist etwas dünn, röstig, cremig und angenehm rauchig. Die Bittere ist recht leicht. Im Nachgeschmack ist etwas Kaffee und Bittere

Alengrin (1350) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Classic Irish dry stout tasted from tap. Tanned, creamy, very dense, milky head and near black colour. Looks the same as Guinness Draught and has the same thick creamy mouthfeel, but there is less iron in the aroma and more malty and fruity sweetness in the mouth, more apple- and chocolate-like; finish equally roasted bitter. On the same par as Guinness Draught, but I’d prefer Beamish.

Really enjoy this one. A strong aroma and a taste with a full roasty tange, with a just a hint of chocolate.

jamestulloch (1355) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Keg at Pleasance Courtyard. Black body with a lasting tan head. Excellent lacing. Aroma of creamy chocolate, earth and ash. Flavour of biscuit and burnt toast. Dry finish. Thick mouthfeel with a smooth texture. Soft fizz. Not bad, but not particularly memorable.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2014 Can. 0,5L. Price 3,99Lt(~1,16€). Labai graži spalva, puikios putos...Geras skonis ir kvapas... vienas mano mėgstamiausių (one of my favorite)

Draught, Engelen, Stockholm. Clear hints of coffee in the aroma. A bit dull, not much ’bite’, even for its type.

AshtonMcCobb (2503) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 15, 2014
On keg. Appearance - opaque black with a lovely fawn head. Nose - a very elusive note of dark chocolate biscuits. Taste - mainly malt not much chocolate. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - decent for a mass distribution beer.

Duft av kaffe, bek og lakris. Mørk, nesten sort farge. Tykt brunt skum. Muk smak av kaffe og noe sjokolade.
