MarkoNm (1429) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - FEB 17, 2015
Pours a dark brown color, topped with an average brown colored head. Roasty aroma, notes of fruits and caramel. Sweet and roasted, caramel in the taste as well. Not bad, but nothing special.

MrBlueSky93 (499) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle from Tesco. Mahogany coloured with single finger head. Very fruity, extremely sweet. Sweet malts and liquorice flavours with a finish of spice. A bit thin though.

Yamato (33) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 10, 2015
Coffee smell, roasted smell. Deep, good body. Caramel, roasted taste. Sweet. Mid carbon. Smooth feeling. Carbon bursts, but disappears quickly. Alcoholic aftertaste. Pretty satisfying.

cmacklin (417) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
300 ml bottle. Pours an opaque, dark brown with a small brown head. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, caramel and fruit. Sweet flavour of brown sugar, roasted malt, caramel and fruit with a dry finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. A little too sugary for my liking.

manuelMTL (237) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 5, 2015
Pours a black with a thin off-white head. Sweet, sugary nose with a hint of roasted malts. In the mouth it?s overly sugary with lots of candy sugar and a bit of chewing gum. Some coffee and chocolate in the end. Not much hop flavor. To sweet for me!

chinchill (2982) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 23, 2014
284ml bottle with a BB date of 29 Dec. 2015. Consumed at the Mahogany Beach Bar in Jamaica on 18 Dec. 2014 Very dark brown; very good head and lacing. Feel: very smooth; soft, medium carbonation. Surprisingly hop forward nose. O: OK but the aroma and flavor don’t match the quality of the look and feel.
