Oakrock (129) - Helsinki, - JAN 5, 2013
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.

Erzengel (6226) - 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 (4686) - 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 (694) - 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.

hippiemusic (58) - Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2014
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.

djoeye (2752) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2014
Good fawn coloured head, dark dark ruby body, some tight carpet spots as lacings. Milky chocolate, sweet roasted malts in aroma, quite mild. Tastes chocolate, cocoa, mocca bean, dark bread. Just slightly diluted on palate. Short finish, some fruity grassy stuff there. [50cl can, abv3.5%, BB30042015, B@Ica Kvantum Kiruna, T11/11@RuneSession]

Rune (9661) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 13, 2014
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).
