Theis (15150) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2006
Draught at Ølbaren. Almost black - big thick offwhite head. Classic irich dry stout. Not much of anything, very drinkable, it is mostely at creamy feeling.

Finn (8305) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2007
Can 0,5l. Deep red/black coloured. A small creamy head. Quite pretty. Aroma of coffee and liquorice. The coffee and liquorice dominate the flavor accompanied by a burnt bitter aftertaste. Very "smooth" and easy drinkable. One of the better canned beers.

nitro can. pours a deep brown black in that lovely cascading way that good nitro stout should. nice tight khaki head that looks as impenetrable as the beer itself. aroma is dry and roasty. palate is smooth and creamy perhaps a little thin. flavor is minimal, dry with faint roasted malt and even fainter hops.

fonefan (52351) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2007
Draught @ Ølbaren, Copenhagen. Dark brown color with a large creamy excellent lacing fully lasting light brown head. Aroma is moderate malty and some smoke, notes off coffee / chocolate !! Flavor is moderate sweet with a average duration. Body is light to medium !! texture is oily. It was a bit disappointing.

Lowe1983 (1656) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2007
Pours a dark brown color with a creamy tan head. Aroma is light of roasted malts, slight coffee, chocolate, and molasses. Flavor is also pretty light of some roasted malts, chocolate, and coffee. Not much carbonation. Better then other nitro can stouts but not really that great either.

Opening these draught cans STILL gives me pause. Is it gonna overflow, or not?? Pouring into glass, it settles into an inch thick creamy tan head made of extremeley small bubbles. Dark brown beer. Not as bitter as Guinness, but that could be because the Guinness I had was not a draught can. Hops comes out in the aftertaste. Very smooth flavor. Unfortunately, another reviewer’s description of it being like a cigar is fairly accurate. No special aroma to speak of. Hopefully, I can find this in a different form someday.

jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 22, 2008
(440mL Can): Frothy, aggrivated liquid. Forms a good-sized head after a while, creamy yellow, very lasting. Very dark brown blackish body, impossible to see through. Malty creamy aroma, earthy, dark coffee grounds. But not very strong aroma, even after warming up for a little bit. Watery taste, some coffee, chocolate. A little bitter.

KingGambrinus (117) - Santiago, CHILE - DEC 16, 2008
Can. Very dark brown with a medium creamy head. Looks nice. It begins with a soft coffee aroma, which later gets better with notes of roasted malt, chocolate and some smokiness. Flavor is roasty, of malt and coffee, medium bitterness and a bit sour. Light body, milk-like thin texture. Not a big fan of nitro stouts, I prefer thicker and stronger ones.

2.8
Deu (949) - Nantes, FRANCE - JUL 27, 2012
On tap in Dublin. Not a really good stout for me. Taste too strong. for classic Irish stout, I prefer a lot more Guinness, murphys,... Personnaly I avoid it.
