Pours a thick black from the bottle with nice tan head and light lacing. Aroma is corn syrup and malt extract. Taste follows, like a thick pale lager. If I would have seen the commercial deScription before buying this I never would have.

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.

Marko (4543) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 13, 2016
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!

WingmanWillis (78) - Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2016
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.

Bottle 0.284 l, Supersave Wine, Westbourne, England, UK.
Ciemnobrązowe piwo z jasnobeżową, puszystą pianą i słodkawym aromatem mlecznej czekolady. W smaku kremowe, słodkawe, czekoladowe z bardzo łagodnym gorzkawym, kawowym finiszem.

b33r (794) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 23, 2015
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.

pete4999 (1347) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2015
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.

d07c0m (126) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2015
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.

Holmen2 (2464) - NORWAY - NOV 1, 2015
Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 01.11.15. Ebony. Brown head and lacing. Dark berries and molasse in aroma and taste.

Holmen1 (4125) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2015
Flaske fra lokal grønnsakhandler på Muswell Hill, delt med Ovesen: brunsvart med tett lysebrunt skum. Søtlig aroma av mørke bær og molasse. Smaken likeså, det er lett å kjenne at de har vært rundhåndet med bruken av sirup og sukker. Humlen prøver (forgjeves) å holde sødmen i sjakk.
