2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
500ml can with a nitro-widget poured into a pint glass. Appearance is clear dark brown with a medium sized creamy beige head with good retention. Aroma of roasted malts and dark coffee. Flavours of roasted malts, dark bread, espresso and a hint of dark chocolate. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is light-medium bodied, creamy texture and average carbonation. Overall a decent Irish Stout, a little too light bodied but that is to be expected from a 3.5% ABV version.

I actually don’t mind this. No its not a Guinness, but was on sale at ABC for 6.99 a four pack. Same color same thickness, just a little more watered down.

500ml can. Good looking with a deep rosewood coloured body and tan coloured head. Sweet chocolate nose. Grainy chocolate to the taste buds, slightly roasted. Thin to medium on the swallow. Far from great but quite possible to drink (kindly shared by djoeye, Tromsø 11.11.2014).

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Leicht kaffeeartiger Antrunk, dünn, wenig malzig. Das Bier nimmt an Intensität noch ab, etwas getreidig, nun eher unpassend. Zu dünn im gut zu sein, auch wenn das Ende harmonischer ist. 14/7/9/9/7/9

Bought in sweden. Tastes like a weak guinness without the sourness guinness has. More chocolate-y and coffee-like notes. Dry finish with a thin body. The swedish rules about beer in convenience stores really fucks up whatever this beer could’ve been if it had been full strength.
