Bottle - Dark with a thick, long lasting tan head. Mildly bitter with a medium roasted malt/coffee flavor. I like Guinness better, but this is good also. darkerdabetter (255) - Michigan, USA - MAY 31, 2004
Stout on the lighter side, still very creamy and easy to drink many of these, not much bitterness, but great aftertaste. bluevegie (3938) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2004
Draught can. Good black colour with some ruby edges. Short but lasting light tan coloured head with good lacing. Roasted coffee aroma. Smooth bitter taste almost creamy, a little thin, hints of rich chocolate and coffee. Went down well! RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - MAY 25, 2004
Very nice stout. Pours a dark brown with red highlights. Aroma is nice, the standard cofee and chocolate. Taste is not quite as full bodied as Guinness, a bit watery ... but it is a little creamier and less bitter as some have said. All in all, very good.

This dark red to black brew is very smooth and not as bitter as Guinness. This leaves a wonderfully creamy taste in your mouth, and it leaves me craving more.

Light, sweet, chocolate maltiness in the aroma. Dark brown with reddish tones. Finger of tan head that stands nicely. Sweet, roasty, oatmeal-like flavour - a bit plain. Medium-full body with smooth, creamy mouthfeel. On tap (at MadHatter’s). Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 10, 2004
Dark color and nice lasting head. Nice and strong taste of coffee, spoiled slightly by bland and watery body. Hops are mildly bitter. Creamier body would make a big difference, still enjoyable treat for special occasions. flemdawg (565) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - MAY 3, 2004
Chocholate and malt aroma, with some coffee thrown in for the hell of it. Brown/black body with some ruby around the edges. Nice firm white head that would be expected from a nitro can. Bitterness with some coffee and cocoa flavors. Thin mouth feel, almost watery. Better than Guiness I think. jew02 (16) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2004
It looks like Guinness but it is not. Very close though. I would say it is not as smooth as Guinness is. Seems more bitter and not as thick. sidekick (26) - Indiana, USA - APR 29, 2004
It’s not Guinness, but the next best thing. Good smoke flavor, but lacks the favorable bitters of Guiness.
