Belo creme denso, castanho e bem formado. É fantástico ver o nitrogênio agindo para formar o creme. Líquido negro e opaco. Aroma de chocolate e malte torrado, caramelo doce. Delicioso! Seca, lúpulo bem inserido, sem excessos. Café e chocolate aparecem bem. A carbonatação baixa dá uma suavidade que faz a cerveja descer com uma bela fluidez. Fundo com malte torrado bem evidente. E chocolate amargo.

As with all Nitro Can Stouts, this one gets full points for appearance. Like it’s identical twin (Guinness) it’s creamy and balanced, but lacking in any real complexity. There’s Roasted Malt, a hint of coffee the faintest hint of hops and a slightly smokey finish. Exactly what I would expect in a mass produced Dry Stout and as such, I would prefer a good Imperial when I can get one.

Drank from a can at home. The taste is slightly bitter with hints of caramel and metal. The head is guinnessy.

the beer is light, altough sense of creaminess, nice mouthfeel, although very watery for an alcohol consumer.

loco_gallego (62) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 13, 2014
Stout noir, mousse crémeuse et persistante. Arôme de malt toasté et fumage. On ressent la même chose en bouche, avec une certaine douceur. Peu d’amertume

Gerbeer (1788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2014
On tap. Pours a very dark brown with moderate lightish tan head. Aromas of roasted malt/barley. Flavors of watery coffee, cardboard, nuts and dusty roasted malts. Light bitter finish. A classic surpassed by craft.

radarsock (915) - Vermont, USA - AUG 31, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2014 $4.00 for the can consumed at State Street Cafe. I asked for the pint, and it unmistakably poured an oily Harry Potter hair jet-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 my Dry Stouts to have been brewed at Guinness.

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.
