Better than Guinness, just. Still too thin and burnt for my taste. Will not buy again Orlan (25) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 8, 2003
I cant believe this rates so highly. There are many better stouts out there. Milky/creamy lactic taste. veronika (410) - SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2003
Looks a little like cococola, but a nice head. Aroma with coffe and chocolate. Tastes like bitter coffe, but ok for being a dark beer. duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2002
RE-rate: Prefer it to Guinness. Sweetish malty chocolate and anise aroma and palate, with a slightly dry finish. Lots of flavour, but very thin on body for a stout, highly drinkable, a great session stout, if there ever was one. Nice burnt malt flavour, and a decent amount of coffee bitterness, weak and artificial. joet (2606) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - NOV 3, 2001
Despite its decent aroma, it’s metallic aftertaste, gossamer body and fleeting nitro foam don’t make for a substantial experience.

Can- This stout was very disapointing. Just as crappy or crappier than the guinness draught I had just had.
I do not recomend this. RedTickBeer (39) - Gainesville, Florida, USA - APR 30, 2003
I was expecting so much more which I guess explains my low score. I suppose this really isn't swill but it just doesn't live up to the Irish stout moniker. Of course I had the widget can, maybe that's the problem. YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2004
Canned beer. Just can’t seem to get past that. This poured as a stout should, dark with a creamy tan head. Notes of coffee, smoke, molasses in the nose. The mouthfeel was rather thin and watery. The flavor was weak coffee, molasses, some chocolate, and some metallic notes. From the can? dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2004
Draft. Clear black colour, nitrogen head. Weak roastmalty aroma. Flat, roastmalty taste, with hints of coffee, ending in medium dry finish. Thinbodied. It´s not offensive, but I can´t see me drinking this again. Too bland and watery. Cdog (32) - Farmington, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2004
A great head when poured with a pretty dark brown to black color. Looks can be wrong. I thought the beer was a little on the thin side with very little hops or malt taste.
