jbruner (2135) - 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.

Evolutionary (268) - Ohio, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle from pirate beer store on 7 mile beach in grand cayman. Nose is very wine like with grape and alcohol taste. Weak carbonation and heavy wine like alcohol taste. This is well-named. Jamaicans do dragons not so well. I think Asians would do Them better. ---Rated via my mouth

jdobbs (331) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 26, 2014
A sweet kick at the start with a surprising bitter after taste but it is also quite two toned it tastes artificially sweet and also thin. Tasted more like a dunkel.

car13many (25) - POLAND - JUN 14, 2014
Sweet aroma. Black, not transparent. Foam is light brown and inconstant. In taste at first is sweet then light sour. You can feel alcohol in taste. Very light bitter. Flat carbonation and medium body.

Headbanger (3226) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle (Old Notes)-Pours black with a small head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and dark fruit. Taste of the same with a bit of alcohol and sugar. This medium bodied brew was not the best but then again I wasn’t expecting much.

ljthiessen (310) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 23, 2014
Bottle. Dark malts and some mixed fruit in the aroma. Flavour is quite sweet and malty, lots of fruit notes. Some nice flavours here, but you can taste the added sugars, which throws it off a little. Mixed feelings about this one.

Bottle. Very dark, no head. Strong tasting with a sweet malt character but dry tasting without any great flavours.

Abio (1550) - Waasland, BELGIUM - APR 13, 2014
Dark brown coloured brew. The head could be some bigger, but holds good. Decent malty and chocolate taste, small surprise, was betting on worse...

mzaar (1508) - Varberg, SWEDEN - APR 2, 2014
Flaska från supermarket i Oistins, Barbados. Svart med litet moccafärgat skum. I doften: Rostad malt, kaffe och röda bär. Smakinslag av kaffe, kakao, vanilj, brunt socker och en svag nötighet. Alldeles för söt för min smak. Mjuk munkänsla.

Pyrmir (3191) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 3, 2014
284 ml bottle in a London hotel room. Dark brown with small brown head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt and alcohol. Taste is a bit thin and alcoholic, coffee, roasty and chocolate flavour.
