It pours dark brown, almost opaque black; the head is tan and effervescent. The aroma has notes of: coffee, milk chocolate, burnt sugar, and toasted barley. The taste is medium light sweet that finishes lightly dry; there are notes of: toasted barley, chocolate, cracker, plums, and espresso. The palate is medium light bodied with light carbonation; the mouth feel is slick and the finish is medium. Overall, very refreshing and tasty - right amount of sweetness.

275 ml bottle, bought in Barbados by a friend. Brewed in Trinidad & Tobago. ABV is 4.9%. Black colour, large tan head. Sweetish aroma of lactose and moderately roasted malts, hints of sweetened mild coffee, liquorice and chocolate. Smooth mouthfeel. Medium sweet flavour, notes of lactose, roasted malts and coffee, roasty and hoppy bitterness in the finish.

This was the first stout I tried. Still a favorite when I can find it. Pours an inky blackness with a tan head. Very sweet. Aromas of milk chocolate and vanilla. Smooth creamy mouth feel. Oh so good and with low abv I can drink multiples.

willisread (829) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 28, 2015
Old rating. Pours an oil black with a nice big tan head. Big chocolate aromas with touches of currants, prune and slight coffee on the nose. Tastes of milk chocolate, toasted cacao nibs, malt, dark fruit and slight coffee notes are present. Sweet on the palate. Rich and creamy mouthfeel. Starts out sweet then finishes up dry.

This beer took a little while to get used to with how sweet it was. Heavy nose upfront of chocolate, dark fruit (mostly raisins) and vanilla. Pours black with a decent sized tan head. Tastes consist of more cocoa, raisins and vanilla. Body was a little light but I suppose for a sweet stout that’s what you want. Nice beer.
