340 ml can (Tanzania Breweries license). Almost black body with a creamy beige head. Roasted malt and chocolate aroma. Flavor is malty with roasted notes, milk chocolate and a little hint of caramel as well as bitter notes. Medium body, creamy and surprisingly easy drinkable, a bit sweet and one dimensional in the finish. A welcoming break from all the insignificant lagers found everywhere in Tanzania.

Courtesy of a fellow from that other site. Canned. Body is black with a lasting, thumb thick head that is tan and creamy. Mild detergent, toasted grains and sweet malt. Mildly thin body, but not alarmingly so. Sweet molasses/cane sugar fore with milf roast notes, chocolate. Some sugar and cream notes, but no coffee. Finishes with a mild burnt bitterness. Not bad really.

I had this in Ghana and I miss it badly. It had a very thick, creamy texture. Wonderful aroma and a very unique refreshing taste.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can: Pours with a black center and deep mahogany highlights. Thin layer of tan colored head. The aroma is full - upfront milk chocolates, honey roasted peanuts, caramel and butterscotch. Nutella-esque. The medium body is milky smooth on the palate. The chocolates continue in the body, which also displays more of the roasted profile with subtle hints of smoke and coffee. Thins out and becomes slighty watery in the finish, but overall not too shabby. For an SABMiller brew, this really is "Goodness in Every Glass."
