Chocolate, earth and cocoa aroma. Pitch black color with small sized brown head. Taste is similar to aroma, but better. Plus some cherry sweetness and milky hint. Medium body, soft carbonation. //tap at Heathon Hops, Manchester coil (252) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2018

Creamy light brown head stayed well on a jet black still body - looks amazing!
Brown sugar, malt & cherry aroma.
Medium to full bodied, smooth over the tongue with a prickly back & clean finish.
Sweet citrus, berry, malt, demerara, wood, pine & espresso tastes with long sweet fruity finish. kraddel (9679) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - APR 5, 2018
Thnx to Bart ! Pours black, good small darker head. Smell is intense, full, complex , mature , very cedar style. Taste is full, woody, but very well blended in. Roasty, cedar style aromatic wood. Chocolate comes very late, but ends the beer very nicely. Very in style of a tropical stout . Very nice indeed ! anfractuosity (503) - - APR 2, 2018
Lovely stout, not overly sweet with lactose, very enjoyable. Thought it may be a bit more chocolatey though.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2018 Tap at Casc Aberdeen. Looks a shiny black with a minimal tan ring round the glass. Little dark fruits and licorice. Bit coconutty. Overall though a smooth, milky chocolate dominates. Super smooth body. Full feel with a gentle, crisp sparkle that lightens experience. Flavours are smooth and chocolatey but have a roasted, smoky bitterness that signposts the abv. Very drinkable and smooth. GTAEgeek (2679) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 13, 2017
Bottle. Pours black, with a small, dark brown head. The aroma is vanilla, cocoa, rum, nutmeg, chalk, and caramel. Sweet and malty, with a nice, drying bitterness. Medium to heavy body, with a grainy, syrupy, thick mouthfeel. This is a delicious, and very unique stout. ctipping (2358) - Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2017
330 mL bottle. Inky black body. Smells of rich chocolate, heavily roasted malt, and I guess that’s cypress. Smells like a light cedar. Tastes of lots of chocolate. Less roasty. A little sweet. Faint cypress back end. Lactose lingers. Earthy finish, too. Medium heavy. Low carbonation. Smells really nice, but maybe isn’t that complex in flavor. j12601 (13659) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 23, 2017
Almost clear brown thin tan head. Big roast, loads of chocolate, big and warm. Medium bodied, big and chewy and full of chocolate. Rich pudding, decadent and bitter with a lovely mousse quality to it. Beautiful, big, bold. Long chocolate into the finish, soy and umami. Lovely stuff.

Really nice, bottle from Bob. A bit of dark fruit along with the usual stout profile roasty, chocolate, not super sweet though thankfully. Well balanced. Delicious.
