Bottle x 2 at Atlantis. Sweet malt and coffee bean nose and dark body which is a bit thin for style. Smooth but really overdone with malt and grains. Hides alcohol well and glad it's 7+ but wouldn't seek it out otherwise.

Bottle aged three days in my Bahamian hotel room. Has an impressive dark pour but an unimpressive sour malty aroma and taste. Roasted malts and barley. Has a dry finish. Thin.

Thanks to CristyD for bringing this back from the Bahamas for me. 330ml bottle. Pours black with a foamy light brown head. Subtle aroma of sweet chocolate malt. Roasty sweet flavor. Medium bodied. Not bad at all.
