jbruner (2356) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 7, 2013
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.

Cimbasso (118) - - OCT 19, 2014
Pours a very dark brown colour with a beige head. Aromas of toffee and alcohol. The taste is very full with hints of liquorice, tobacco and banana. Quite sweet and rather creamy. A decent alcoholic strength gives this stout plenty of backbone. Nice dry finish with sweet, vanilla overtones. A good foreign stout.

davidtjm (445) - Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 14, 2014
Bottle. Pour is black with a caramel head, aroma is alcohol, toffee, sweetness. Taste is alcohol, sweetness, light toffee, body is thin and carbonation is gentle. Quite enjoyable, although it is rather on the sweet side

berlinmany (224) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 14, 2014
There was a good 1/8" of dust on the bottles. The texture is a perfect blend of oiliness and carbonation. The aroma and flavor was extremely rich and satisfying, nothing overpowering, and surely not lacking. Has an effect of melted butter with pancake syrup and fresh brewed fluffy cappucino, minus some of the sweetness, but with plenty of refreshing qualities and alcohol kick.

ianwelby (497) - SCOTLAND - OCT 3, 2014
Black beer with a creamy head and yeasty smell of fruit and malt. Flavour is light sour fruit. Not much body to it but it’s not watery either. Not special but drinkable all the same.

MacBoost (1319) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - OCT 1, 2014
284ml bottle from shelf. Pours a dark brown with ruby edges and a small off white head. Aromas of tobacco, dark fruit and cigarette butts. NICE! I love these kind of beers. Taste is some dark fruit, molasses, nicotine. finsihes semi dry with plenty of buttfucking pleasure. Nice, like a thick Jamacian cock in your ass.

beeebon (198) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2014
This is now back in my local Tesco. Drinkable stout although rather sweet and sticky, doesn’t really feature any of the aspects I associate with this type of beer.

300ml bottle from LCBO, Parkway Mall, Scarborough, ON. 7.5 alc. / vol. Pours an opaque dark brown colour with one finger of tanned head. Flavour is much better than the aroma. Notes of coffee and peaches with a metallic finish. Moderate carbonation. Aroma of rusty iron.
