Choice barley grain is slow roasted to produce a rich dark brew. A unique blend of hops adds a touch of bitterness and a special yeast fixes the unmistakable flavor and creamy head.
Also comes in a license brewed version by Tanzania Breweries, Pabod Breweries in Nigeria and in Vietnam by SAB’s subsidiary in Da Nang.

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.

Can. Black beer with tall tan head that diminishes. Strong aroma of molasses, caramel, roasted malts, milk chocolate, smoke. Sweet flavor with notes of sugar, caramel and sweetened milk with notes of chocolate. Finish turns dry and slightly bitter and last awhile. Thin body and watery texture.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JAN 6, 2007
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."

bourne (161) - Suwon, SOUTH KOREA - JUL 7, 2006
A chocolate stout with a fairly good gravity and a lot of sweetness. The roast and the malt are good but lacks diversity. I only really detected chocolate, no coffee or toffee. And the chocolate is rather singular.

pivnizub (10100) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2006
Can (sponsored by MoritzF !): Almost black coloured, small but stable brownish foamy layer, lacing; delicate nose: roast-malt, milk-coffee with a faint fruitiness; bitter-sweetish flavour with a very faint acidity, soft MF, quite light bodied for a beer of 6.0% ABV; roast-malty, a bit fruity finish with a delicate, but lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Quite good and pleasant.....there are worse beers from SABMiller.........
