TedE (791) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2016
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.

Sarlacc83 (1691) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 4, 2016
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.

shigadeyo (3566) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 17, 2016
Aroma has roasted malt with caramel; near black with a dense light beige head that’s lasting; the flavor has a lot of caramel, roasted malt, hint of cocoa, dry finish; light-medium body, very smooth and creamy, light on the tongue; I’ve always enjoyed this more than Guinness Draught and am happy to see it back in Ohio, quintessential Dry Irish Stout.

50cl on tap at Kompressor, Tallinn. Black body with a large nitro head. Moderate roasty aroma with hints of wood and dark fruits. Moderate sweet with mild, but balanced roasty flavours and a fairly dry finish. A bit watery, but fairly tasty.
