Brownish dark. Good head but not as good as a stout should have. Very neutral taste. Almost like cola without gas. Why would anyone drink this while they could drink Beamish or Guinness?

looks pretty in a glass, but really doesnt taste great. kind of a weird sour burnt roast flavor. gets better as you drink it tho. trying to remember what guinness was like, but this is similar. for some reason i remember guinness tasting better. but that was along time ago.

Bebum (830) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 18, 2017
Dark brown, forever lasting head. Light-medium body, weak flavor, limp mouthfeel, low heat and carbonation, short palate. Moderately bitter, dry. Dry roast flavor, not much else. Not worth drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pint, Wind & Mills Pub Vienna. Sweet caramel aroma, black color with very dense foam. Roasted, chocolate, sweet and bitter taste with a lasting aftertaste. A good pint

Grumpelmies (162) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 4, 2016
Black with a nice head thanks to the nitro. Smell is rather weak, malt and a little bit of chocolate. Taste is also a bit weak, malts, cocoa and a touch of butterscotch. This beer goes well with cookies or chocolate. Nice mouthfeel. Despite my description and rating I enjoy this easy drinking stout very much!

PugUglyBrewer (332) - - NOV 23, 2016
Dark brown color with the creamy head of light tan foam. The faintest aroma of roasted barley. Creamy mouthfeel with light flavors of dark chocolate and dark roast coffee beans. Thin and weak in comparison to a Guinness.

Dark with thick creamy off white head. Not a hell of a lot on the aroma. Delicious roasty smooth flavour, with mild bitter finish. Creamy smooth mouthful.

Redly black appearance with lots of foamy head. Tastes of roasted coffee, burnt citrus and cream. Medium-light creamy body, smooth carbonation and a finish of creamy coffee. Not Guinness
