Roasted malt with a hint of dark fruit aroma. Black as night body with a tan head. Roasted malt taste. Not much bitterness. Hints of raisin or other fruit give it a palatable smoothness. Syrup thick body. Really on the fence on this one.

Very creamy unsubstantial head with a solid black body. Aroma of sweet treacle and raisins.
Rather pleasant sweet taste of caramel and fruitcake with an undertone of the strong alcohol.

300ml bottle poured into a pint glass. Very dark with a brown foamy head, that looks delicious . Has a coffee and malt aroma. Sweet taste with a dry finish. Expected it to be thicker but was pretty thin. Good beer.

Thanks heavy for bringing this from Vienna, shared with him and ogivlado. Off white head, blackish dark brown/amber body. Heavy aroma (heh), raisins, aged wine, sweet, with a touch of sourness, solid caramel. Interesting. Mild taste comparatively, light coffee, raisins, creamy, actually tasty, maybe wouldn’t work in the head if it wasn’t. Dunno, it’s OK enough. Not thrilling, not flawed. Yay!

Bottle at home courtesy of FLBH and a trip to Barbados. Pours black with a tan head. Little bit of coffee and chocolate on the aroma. Taste is a real sweet hit, definitely get the booze and a hint of chocolate right at the end.
Carbonation is OK. Not that great really.

Ciemnobrązowe piwo z jasnobeżową, puszystą pianą i słodkawym aromatem mlecznej czekolady. W smaku kremowe, słodkawe, czekoladowe z bardzo łagodnym gorzkawym, kawowym finiszem.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown color with small tan head and little messy lacing. Aroma and flavor have sharp amber malts, a fruity/vinous bite, with a creamy cocoa chocolate finish. Thin and simple- tastes fake like a bad homebrew kit.

Bottle. Dark brown pour, dark tan-colored head. Impressive looking beer but overall a little lacking. Very sweet stout, despite the relatively high alcohol content. Light on the mouthfeel. I felt like it could’ve been betterr but just wasn’t.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark and viscous. Smells like dark choc and coffee. Not quite as sweet and weirdly dry in comparison to other Foreign stouts. LCBO used to have sixpacks of this at a decent price.
