GTAEgeek (1443) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 14, 2013
9.6 oz. bottle. Black, with a small but persistent, tan head. Milk chocolate and molasses dominate the aroma, with some phenolic notes and syrup. Very sweet flavor, with a very slight, almost medicinal hint. Medium to heavy body, and very syrupy. Overall, this is a very sweet and forward stout. Not very complex, but still a tasty beer.

Very dark in colour creamy head, strong stout taste with hints of treacle , smooth warming aftertaste. Overall well rounded stout. Worth trying.

NordicV (1366) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2015
Mörkbrun öl med lättare gråvitt skum. Doft av kola och torkad frukt. Även lite melass och viss kryddighet. Kola och lättare chokladtoner i smaken. .

John25 (1030) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - MAY 27, 2015
Bottle. Almost black. Really light and full of sweet corn syrup. Some dark fruit on the finish. Lacking all the good parts of a stout. Thin mouthfeel. No roast, cocoa, coffee, etc. I wouldn't buy this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Butelka na Jamajce podczas rejsu. Kolor ciemnobrązowy z mocną jasnobrązową pianą. Aromaty czekoladowe. Smak pełny, banany, bardzo kremowe, słodkie. Wyczuwalny alkohol, bardzo dobry stout z Karaibów.

Sekemoto (20) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
Pours black with a tan head. The nutty aroma is very mild and quite sweet. Also smell chocolate, roasted malt and vanilla. Flavour follows the aroma and is also mild.
