COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer is brewed using the same malt used for Caybrew and CayLight, but three speciality malts are added – a Munich malt, crystal malt and black malt. The Munich malt and crystal malt add flavour, while the black malt gives the beer its unique dark colour, as well as adding a roasted flavour.

Brown pour with tan head, some lacing. Aroma of nuts and caramel malt. Sweet bock-like honey flavors with a lot of nutty malts. Not cloying. Drinkable. I thought this was better than others rated it.

DeanF (1716) - Nunavut, CANADA - AUG 26, 2014
Slight aromatics of malt but there is minimal head and it’s a slight foggy brown, all rather typical. Flavour is a delight, a good mix of maltiness and sweet alcohol fusels to kick things into gear. Decent flavour but still rather simple. Not bad.

12 ounce can shared by SHiG via Travlr at the DC Summer Saison & Sour Tasting, 7/12/14. Pours a clear amber color with a thin frothy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of caramel malt, mild cardboard and hops. The taste is toasted malt, raisin, a bit of cardboard. Medium bodied, high carbonation.

Not sure what they mean by bock but this is like fake lager. Amber pour. Some barley. Tastes like stowed away cash on foreign bank accounts - aka dirty. Bottle thanks to Travlr.

Can courtesy of SHIG, arrived in the mail from Alaska just ten minutes before a tasting - thank you sir! Clear light golden amber color, white head. Aroma of slightly vegetal caramel. Taste is similar.

Can. Pours clear dark amber to brown with a medium, frothy off-white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is toast and nutty malt, dates and figs with light earthy hops. Flavor is sweet malt, light hops and bitterness with a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

First sample was a bottle pour on the beach in Cayman, then several cans throughout the week. Brownish amber with thin disappearing head. Nose sweet and toffee malt, some minerality. Taste mild sweet, similar to nose. Minimal off flavors. Mineral finish. Not too bad for a Caribbean beer.

[Can (12oz) shared with HogTownHarry & biegaman -- c/o j&m] Pours a golden-amber with a small lasting fizzy off-white head. O.K. aroma of brown sugar, toasted malt and maybe some fruit. Flavour is malty along with some light hops. Long light bitter finish. Average bodied. One of the better beers by these guys, overall it’s O.K.
