Pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma is of roasted malt. Taste is smooth. I get a bit of coffee and chocolate flavors. Very nice beer. Hides its alcohol well. Easy to drink and enjoy.

625 ml bottle. Dark brown pour, nearly opaque. Thick beige head leaves medium lacing. Aroma was strong mocha bitter chocolate. Earthy toasted flavor has notes of coffee, chocolate, malt, and some fruit. Finishes smooth with some sweetness. slightly bitter. Hides its 8% abv well. Mouth feel is medium body with a slightly oily feel. A fine stout, not my favorite but definitely worth a try.

22 oz bottle. Poured almost pitch black with a dark tan head. When I first tried it cold out of the fridge, there was a strong alcohol bite at the end, but that went away as the beer warmed up. Delicious chocolate and roasted flavors coming through. Considering the price, it’s definintely worth picking up a couple.

330 ml bottle. Pours black with dark tan head. Full head which dissolves quickly. Sweet toffee like flavors at the start with a light bitterness at the finish. Finishes dry with alcohol well hidden. Very drinkable.

Packed with crystal/chocolate malt flavour. Coffee, chocolate. raisen, are just some of the many flavours that come through and give a long finnish. They serve it in my local Sri Lankan curry house, its fantastic with their spicy food. At 8% its a bit of a killer because all you want to do is drink it!

TopherDrinks (96) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2007
Pours out black with a quick forming light brown head. Aromas of dark chocolates, fine tobacco, and roasted notes. Underlying dark fruits and black licorice seem to come through as it warms. Flavor is more tobacco, smoked woods, roasted malts, and yeast finishing with a fizzy chocolate roast! Thin but not light. Carbonation does a great job stimulating my taste buds and the hops become present on the dry finish and after taste.

This beer is black as night, with a small tan head. Has a burnt coffee-like taste, with a hint of molasses, a very slight raisin taste lingers. A fine tasting stout that I highly recommend.
