330ml can. Black with a thin tan head; smoky, coffee aroma; smooth with an intense chocolate flavour; sweet and dry finish. An excellent beer for the strength.

Not the worst beer I’ve had. I was surprised at the low 3% alcohol level. I would try it again...seems like it would be good with wings.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2011 This is a wonderful beer, smooth and sweet. A nice bit of smokiness and not too strong at 3%. I might get away with having two glasses of it. Can’t imagine the Americans liking this, though.

Can, Co-op, Oxford. Grainy Cheerios® aroma, chocolate milk. Mineral sweetness, light coffee and chocolate roast. Gentle carbonation, light creamy palate. A funny stout, but very pleasant and unassuming, and an awful lot of flavor for the strength.

STILL SOME AROUND. I LIKE COFFEE SO I LIKE THIS BEER. EASY TO DRINK AND CREAMY. IT IS COMPLEX BUT THAT COMPLEXITY REMINDS ME OF SUB PRIME COLUMBIAN COFFEE. OR A FRENCH ROAST. I ALWAYS DRINK COFEE WITH EVAPORATED MILK SO THATS KINDA WHAT YOU HAVE HERE. OH WELL EEEHHH!

Deep black colour, a smokey roast malt nose, very mellow quite complex roast malt flavour. Probably the best beer in a CAN that i have had.

Nice, dark head and a black beer. The initial flavour is sweet coffee and then some burnt notes of malt and a hint of licorice. The bitterness is low and the overall impression is a bit too sweet.

Bottle. Fairly typical of a sweet stout. Opaque black with a beighe head. Flavor is of coffee and cream with a good bit of sugar.

Hints of coffee and evaporated milk sums it up not much to this beer and I didn’t know it was retired. Page 293 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 328 out of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

Canned. A dark beer with a head like milk chocolate.
Sweet, with bot coffe and milk, a beer version of a latte. Interesting, but not a beer for me!
