Pours black with small head around edge. Slight reddish tint. No overwhelming flavors or aromas. Flavor has honey, oat, caramel, chocolate. Very good. Good mouthfeel.

Pailhead (5808) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - FEB 7, 2005
Bottle: Sweet creamy malt aroma Pours a dark brown with orange hilights when held to the light. Tan head with decent retention. Real sweet. Sugary and fruity. No hops. Decent chocolate flavor. Sweetness increases in the finish and starts to remind me of gummy livesavers.

I have a weakness for chocolate & rasberries..both of which I could grasp in both aroma and flavor. It was a bit too sweet and suprisingly thin/watery for a dark beer. I disagree with the full-bodied claim, but I was pleasantly suprised and would buy it again....if it were cheaper.

Black color with a thin head. Bitter malt aroma and taste. Very simple, but tasty enough.

Very sticky sweet, like cold molasses going down your throat. Good as a novelty, but don’t see this becoming my new session beer anytime soon! But will continue to sample now and again. I especially liked the high carbonation.

This is a strange beer. It’s black as oil with a brown head, but it doesn’t taste dark at all. There are notes of caramel sweetness and creamy meltiness. This is a good beer that I would drink again. The aroma is very faint and the palate is not very diverse. It is a simple brew in its palate, however, it really does just taste good. For a "black beer" it’s very very drinkable.

Foxbush (1531) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 8, 2005
This black beer was enjoyed in a Brazilian resturant. The color was a deep black. The flavor was like a creamy Porter. The taste was of nuts and malt. This was my first beer from Brazil. It was special.

This black ale is well balanced and goes down easy. It has a lot of flavor.

JK (5123) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2004
One dimensional malt aroma. Black with very small and short lived tan head. Flavor of roasted malt and barley. Complexity increases as it warms, with licorice and soy sauce coming out. Pleasant herbal/vegetal characteristics. Reminds me of a bock. Very smooth and easy to drink. Heavily carbonated. A good surprise.

Rastacouere (6161) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 25, 2004
Close to black with burgundy reflects. Impressive tan head. Tropical stout like sweetness in the aroma. Milky and roasty aroma where faint licorice, grains and cane sugar can be found. Light bodied, heavily carbonated. It’s not bad, actually rather tasty for a 4.4% beer, but doesn’t have characteristics I dig in that kind of beer, like a crisp and airy mouthfeel, wood notes and better overall malt balance (less raw sugariness and less porterish lactic component). Anyway, there you have it, the best Molson I’ve tried.
