hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2005
Very dark brown with a brown head. The aroma is liquorice and bready malt. The taste is intensely sweet, alcoholic and full of chocolate. Quite basic and unsubtle, but remarkably good.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2005
Bottle (from Asda, BBE Jan 07). Sweet liquorice roast aromas. Roasty liquorice fades somewhat in the body leaving a peversely thin yet sweet and partly fermented feel. Interesting enough but not to my taste.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2005
Somewhat thin-bodied, milky-lactose sweetness, some toasts, some nuts. Bascially a very sweet, slightly roasty, mild chocolate, no coffee, low bitterness, low fullness or smoothness to body. Despite all that, not unpleasant. Although, this has ruined my 4.3 average for the foreign stout style. Sorry, Lion Stout!

fuyajo (229) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 20, 2005
This was brought back from Jamaica by a friend. It pours do a dark brown/red color with a small head. The aroma has a molasses, sweet smell. thin but foamy mouthfeel, with a sweet molasses taste. Other tastes include a hint of alcohol and roast. A pretty sweet flavor, overall. However, it’s good.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2008 An intresting wee beer. Aroma is typically stouty with soem sort of nutty notes. Taste is similar with a sort of tropical tangyiness, like a sort of bite. Not much of a finish.RERATE: Bottle from Jamaica via dad. Great stuf, very tasty sweet and you coudl really do pints of it.

Bottled at Delirium, Gothenburg. Dark brown with a reddish glow. Light brown head. Sweet, roasted, malty nose. Taste is the same, with more coffee-flavor. Very drinkable stout, almost suited as a session-beer. A little too thin mouthfeel. (051008)

Eructoblaster (3792) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 23, 2005
Black body with reddish glints. Its thick brown bubbly head vanishes quickly. Decent malty aroma with typical brown sugar and roasty notes. Fair malty/roasty taste that lacks complexity but hides the alcohol pretty well. Good sweet/roasty finish. Very close to a Scotch Ale.

rickgordon (3851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2005
Bottled, sampled at Delirium Café, Göteborg. Dark brown. Light brown head. Vineous aroma, residual sugars. Dried fruits(plum) lurks behind. Flavour brings smallish notes of menthol and dried fruits and is a bit sugary. Medium-full bodied. Chocolate becomes evident in finish.
