Hisses with that gorgeous nitro explosion on opening, and pours a creamy off-white, which settles into a persistent reverse cascade, eventually (after quite a few sighs) resulting in a clear, red-tinged black, with a perfect cream of head. Lacing is spectacular, as expected. Very fine bubbling as it's tilted. Really, it looks just about picture-perfect. Just about as good as an Irish Stout can look, and almost as perfect as you can expect from a can. Nose is smooth and creamy. No roast, perhaps a slight grainy toastiness, but more of that rich thick cream, some vanilla, and a suggestion of sweet spices: cinnamon and nutmeg—perhaps the only true darker tones to the aroma. Very nice. Taste is clean and light. Smooth, creamy entrance. More spice, nutmeg, and a slight minerally character. Again, very little true roast: there's a tickle on the back of mild toasty darkness, and a synergy between the darkness, the mineral character and even a suggestion of smoke that leaves a slight phosphorous character lingering. It's very nice and very smooth. Feel is as you would expect. Extremely creamy with almost no noticeable carbonation. Despite the richness it's relatively light, meaning it doesn't cloy in the mouth. I really love a good Irish Stout, and I think this is a particularly good one. It's certainly much, much better than the locally contract-brewed Guinness you'd get here in Australia. At 4% ABV, this is exquisitely sessionable. Indeed, the whole can went down without a question, and I'm already craving another.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2018 Wygląda oczywiście genialnie, z kremową pianą z azotem, niczym słynny Guiness. Aromat również nie jest zły. W smaku wyraźna paloność i kwaskowość, ale zrównoważone, bo piwo ma dość kremową teksturę. Gazu nie ma praktycznie w ogóle. Dzięki temu wszystkiemu piwo jest pełne ale bardzo pijalne. koloart (50) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 12, 2018
Ciemno brązowe, piana na azocie . W smaku wyraźna kawa , chociaż samo piwo bardzo ułożone i gładkie . Generalnie ciekawsze niż Guinness

Dark brown red beer, small head. Aroma is lightly roasted, not much some coffee. Taste is the same, roasted, malt, chocolate, bitter sweet, not bitter, light but very drinkable. p0urmeac0ld0ne (413) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - DEC 18, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2017 Lovely creamy stout that I always used to buy because the local offy would have 4 cans of it for £3. Those were the days! A bit mild for my tastes these days, but not a brew that I will ever forget. Never had on draught, only in cans with the widget.

0,5l can. Very dark, black colour with ever lasting creamy beige head. Beutiful. Aroma: Caramel, roasted coffee beans, sweet chedar notes. Taste: Has a very malty, roasted start with a light bitter mouthfeel. Medium body with no carbonation at all. Medium lasting soft and pleasent bitter finish. Feels a bit weak becouse of the lack of carbonation, but tasty and a good drink. Bill Becker (2010) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 18, 2017
From Dec 2006
Poured from 16oz can(nitro) avery dark brown with reddish hues and a large head of foam.
The smell is very light but I can sense some roasted malt.
The taste has some nice roastiness to it with a touch of sweetness. The finish has a semi bitter taste to it that is quite pleasant. Good sessionable Irish Dry Stout and I like it a lot...I could drink it all day. ;^)
