Nice beer. Good coffee/chocolate aroma. Has that nice roasted smell. Light on the palate without the bite of Guiness on the aftertaste.

Diablokev (180) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - MAR 8, 2003
The aroma is strong of coffee, and caramel, and chocolate, The appearance is pitch black. The flavor is of coffee, caramel, and is very smooth. The beer is thick and heavy. Overall a very nice stout.

Can with nitro. Black color with a lush creamy tan head. A dry coffee, slightly musty, and roasted flavor and aroma.

Seems like Guinness Light to me. Lacking in the big roasted nose/flavor profile that I look for in a stout.Wont be back to this one any time soon.

very rich and smooth. had it out of a draught can. It is almost like a light version of guinness.

I've tasted only a few stouts in my life (and I have never been too satisfied); maybe I'll have to re-rate it as I develop a taste for this kind of brews. Smell of chocolate and toffe. Long lasting, small, creamy brown head. A bit sweet initially, becomes more bitter and dry when going down.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - FEB 27, 2003
The best thing with this stout is its nice capuccino-like head (due to draughtflow system, of course). But, unfortunately, it turned to be very thin and lifeless example of the style. Too watery to my taste.

GreatDane (101) - Skævinge, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2003
A great looking beer, no doubt about that - and it smells even better. But will I ever love the taste of a Stout-beer??? I doubt it!!! Simply to bitter for me!!!

evinal (49) - Mattapoisett, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 22, 2003
on tap. what a great looking beer. Black as night contrasting a creamy rich head. Dry, creamy, very slight chalky aftertaste. Great irish stought.

Overall good stout, similar to Guinness, but with more aftertaste, seems to be like burnt malt.
