flying_pig (1527) - - JAN 23, 2013
440ml Nitro Can from SuperValu (Ireland - £1.69):
Bland malts and a little sweetness from some brown sugar, there is a very faint and almost water like smell with some bitterness at the end.
Thick and quite creamy too before settling to a dark caramel brown colour with a very creamy, darkish white head on top that is about the width of a pinky and holds very well.
Bland with some malts and light caramel flavours and a sugary sweetness following this. There is a burnt toast and nutty flavour. The beer is quite bitter and very creamy.
Creamy with a medium to full body yet it still feels slightly watery. The beer seems quite bland and there is almost no carbonation with some small amounts of bitterness at the end.

Great looking beer when poured and settled but everything else about it was fairly average sadly. The aroma was bland and unexciting, definitely not an ale worth looking out for. I’m not sure if it would be better on draft and I’m not sure if I really want to find out either.It was drinkable and the nitro can was a plus.

AlfredoGarcia (277) - Santiago, CHILE - APR 24, 2017
330 ml bottle. Bought in a Jumbo supermarket in Santiago. Light smell, very yeasty. Nice red color ith big creamy head. Taste is pretty good, herbal, kind of boring, but still good. Could drink this again for sure. Charming.

CurlyJoe (207) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 17, 2017
Pours clear black with lots of creamy head. A little toasty malt on the nose. Very creamy/smooth taste and texture, toasty malts and also a little mild bitter hops. Not as good as a Guinness but pretty similar.
