Looks just like it tastes...smell of coffee and cream...tastes almost burnt but not too much...not my favorite but definately deserving of its reputation...

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2004 Pours black with large white head. Has a nice look to it and gives off chocolate and coffee smells. It is very smooth and goes down nice and clean but has a long finish. It tastes like a cold ice coffee sometimes. I have been having this more often now and it is one of my favorites.

Great stuff. NOt much bad to say. Dark, rich and satisfying. Touch of sourness adds to the complexity. One of my favorites.

Excellent appearance with a thick black color and nice creamy head. Although certainly not the best stout around, it is the best known and unlike Budweiser deserves its reputation and popularity.

Love to watch the cascade after pouring. Nice undertones and a crisp finish. Wish I could figure out a way to put the shamrock on the head when pouring from a can.

Pours black with a creamy head, goes down very smooth, but takes too long for the foam to go down.
