Having heard many good things about this beer (it used to be my mothers main beer in England, and we have similar tastes), I was looking forward to trying it. I’m still not sure what I thought of it, on one hand it was quite a bit too sweet, although it didn’t cloy too much, yet on the other it was drinkable if one got over that. It looked really nice, a deep rich mahogany (when held to the light), or jet black when not, with a rocky tan head a top. I guess I could get used to it, but I don’t have any great desire to right now.

I was surprised by the complexity of this considering its low strength. Dark with a coffee taste dominating and with plenty of depth. Very suppable and an all round pleasant beer.

Very milky and sweet. Similar too a coffee. Very thick and quite nicely put together. Very unique which is great and interesting to enjoy.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted from a 330-ml can: roasted malt, sweetness, some chocolate and coffee notes, dark fruit, not very bitter and a bit creamy. Very drinkable, as it’s only 3% in alcohol. I didn’t expect much from this interbrew beer, but I was surprised. It is a pleasant beer, not bad at all.

Can, from Global Wines, Bearwood. Enormous head, from a small can. Opaque. Smells creamy, but going off slightly. Very light, sweet and smooth. Some blackcurrant maybe and chocolate - Hershey style! pleasant enough, but weak.
