EithCubes (5088) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Bottle. Sweet stout smell, strong velvety chocolate and underlying fruit, delicious! Dark ruby brown pour is close enough to black for reggae and supports a sudsy light brown head. Taste has chocolate, yes, but the key player is dominating roast, aptly supported by dry ash. Which lasts. Lightish medium body. Stings a bit, and a drop too much acidity, but the flavor hammers without losing any grace on the swing.

Bottle. Poured dark brown with a thin tan head. Light aroma of roasted malt. The flavor had roasted malts with a chocolate background. Medium body with a roast bittersweet aftertaste.

badgerben (4502) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Just near black color with a falling medium head. Strong rum and molasses aroma. Fairly acrid, burnt malt taste. Light rum. Taste kind of like it was aged in a heavily charred barrel. Hints of sweetness.

LinusStick (2887) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2010
A decent foreign stout. Aroma was very weak. Ginger ale and sugar which threw me off. Pour was a flat dark black with a few rising bubbles and just a few tan bubbles for a head. Taste was actually decent. Coffee, bitter roasted malt and just a hint of chocolate on the top of the mouth that comes out fuller as it warms. The carbonation is decent and the sweet chocolaty aftertaste brings this beer up from below average to slightly above average. Not bad!

SrSilliGose (3269) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 26, 2010
first thing you notice is the rum, definitely. then some anise and coconut. a bit of grainy chocolate. weird unique beer. rum transforms into more of a molasses as it warms, which is nice since the rum had a grain alcohol essense to it that was a little off puting. neat to try, but wouldn’t care to drink more than few ounces of this.

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 29, 2010
Pours near black with a small brown head (i.e. normal stout pour). Nose is interesting; there are hints of what smells like rum (or, more appropriately, molasses) and a bit of breadiness, along with a milk chocolate smell. The flavor is a quick, full burst of dark chocolate and coffee and quite good and rich....but suddenly it fades to a sharp and oily metallic taste. Finish is slightly metallic and bitter. It goes from good to nasty in a hurry. Too bad.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 25, 2010
Has a belgiany stout nose...some brine, some salted nuts, belgian stout yeast, salt, peanuts..hmmm...dark brown beer, tan head. Flavors are fairly nutty, brittle like...a touch salty..interesting for sure but needs a little more sweetness to bring out those interesting attributes. Somewhat acidic palate kind of engulfs the carbonation but it works.

theisti (3296) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUN 2, 2010
12 oz twist off bottle purchased at the Beer Authority in Lake City (Seattle) Washington. Poured into my Ename Chalice. Pour is hazed black with a smallish tan head that lasts on the surface. Aroma is mild licorice and even milder roast coffee. Clean, but subdued, nose. Taste picks up a bit, again mixing the licorice and roasted coffee and malt, along with a cane sugar finish. Palate is medium bodied, soft active carbonation, velvety smooth and easy driniking. More of the cane sugar in the longish finish, but not cloying at all. Not a ton going on here, but nicely smooth. Hides the 7.6 well.
