Very nice appearance, very nice foam. Beautifull colour. A lot of taste chocolate, canadian dark maple syrup, mulch. I prefer my hot chocolate made in hot creamy milk, not in hot water. This hot chocolate is made in hot water.

500ml can.Brown body with a creamy, slightly brown, head. Roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee is there, but it’s all too thin imo.

Gorgosh (421) - SWEDEN - FEB 12, 2016
Svag stout är som ett lömskt bakhåll. Stout ser ut som stout och aromen är kaffe- och chokladdominerad på ett sätt som är bekant för den som druckit en starkare Murphys. Där upphör också likheterna. Kan vara få drycker som tappar karaktären så fullständigt när den görs som en klen halvmesyr. En blek lager förväntas vara just blygsam, här luras hjärnan i stället att för ett ögonblick tro att något genuint är antågande. Besvikelsen när sanningen uppdagas är monumental.

Erzengel (7297) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 19, 2015
*Can from Hemköp in Stockholm. Nice malty-dry stout. Refreshing with a nice thin body. A bit diluted but round and full. Malt with the typical roasty aftertaste. Nice.

olsvammel (5441) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2015
Can at ICA Maxi Eurostop outside of Örebro. Dark malts on the nose, some dark chocolate. Light body with some roasted malts and a hint of ash. Drinkable but not very exciting.

SamTheBarrel (745) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2015
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.
