Better option than Guinness for the sweet tooth who enjoy the malts and not the hops. Love the low alcohol content with creaminess, plenty of flavor, and smooth finish. One of the few beers I actually like to drink strait out of the can.

Opaque coffee color, creamy persistent head; Chocolaty aroma; Rich and mild flavor; smooth, flat, not carbonated; Not bad but I prefer more carbonation. Better than Guinness.

14.9 oz nitro widget can into a Irish pub pint. Nutty and slightly roasty aroma; hints of mineral. Deep, dark, ruby color with a thick light tan creamy, very creamy head that just does not recede (well, it does, but very slowly). Thin, smooth mouth feel, bolstered by the thick head. Nutty flavor, a little coffee, but bitter throughout (initial, middle, finish). The bitterness fades fairly quickly in the aftertaste. The overall flavor is thin; not a lot there and not much perception of thickness / smoothness from the nitro. Compared to the Guinness, it is more bitter and it could also use more contribution from the malts, and the mineral tinge in the aroma and taste is just a bit detracting from the overall. I'm surprised that I prefer the Guinness.

Pours a dark brown color that is more ruby colored around the edges. Thick velvet tan head dissipates a tad but never less than a full half-inch of foam.

Aroma has some notes of roasted malts – not much else. The aroma is actually disappointingly subdued.

Taste has notes of roasted malts, bitter bakers chocolate, slight tobacco notes, and a bit of dark fruit. There is a definite hop bitterness on the finish. Bitterness lingers on the paalatte and builds as you consume it. Also, these flavors definitely taste watered down.

Feel is pretty smooth. Carbonation is mild but prickly. Semi-dry finish. Light to medium bodied.

Overall this is solid, but with a lackluster aroma and a more simplistic flavor, its not as good as some of the other options out there.
