WhoU (125) - Cape Town, - JAN 31, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle Spar Tops Hermanus. Pours brown, black, frothy with average carbonation and head. Aroma of bovril, marmite, molasses and malt. Taste is umami with slight sweet and bitter. Lacking in body. Very drinkable.

ljthiessen (1080) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 13, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown, nearly black pour with a beige head, some retention. Aroma is fairly mild but mostly as expected - some chocolate and dark fruits, not particularly roasty, a little creamy. Taste is light-bodied but balanced, some chocolate and slight roasty notes, hints of dark fruit, very easy-drinking.

huineman (583) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 31, 2016
50 cl bottle. Pours black with thin, short-lasting, no-lacing brown head. Aroma is low: licorice, blackberry, coca-cola, coffee. Mouthfeel is soft, fizzy, watery. Slightly bitter finish with a somewhat sweet aftertaste.

Subliminal64 (98) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 24, 2016
Smell is very weak of coffee and chocolate. Pours a dark brown with a small head that lasts almost to the end. Tastes somewhere between Guinness and a dark beer. Similar to Hop City 8th Sin, only with less flavour. A little on the flat side. No aftertaste. Overall I was glad to try this and will try again. Looking forward to finding it on cask.

Gehbe (178) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUN 17, 2016
Medium brown head, some lacing. Aroma is rather weak, some dried fruit, caramel, some herbal/spicy/fruity hop character and a hint of coffee. Taste is minerally, slight roasty sourness, light bitter finish. Very smooth on the palate, highly drinkable. Overal smooth and drinkable, but nothing outstanding.
