BrewWhatIWant (277) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2017
Pours black with a medium beige head. Aroma is burnt sugar and roasted malt. Taste is sweet with notes of cheap rum, burnt sugar, roasted malt, caramel and pineapple. Body is medium with lots of carbonation. The burnt sugar and hot alcohol are very prominent, but balanced by the sweetness. It works, but it’s not great. It reminds me of Cuban cocktails.

Pours black with medium beige head. Aroma is dust, caramel, hay, old wood, some plums. Taste is dusty, caramel, some sweetness, syrup, light alcohol, strawberry juice, some fruits. Drinkable, but somehow boring beer!

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2017 Very unique sweet deep taste that’s not heavy. Strong stout for its taste. Tesco sell it on the imported food isle. Good price amazing stout.

WaddlingPlatypus (186) - Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2017
250ml bottle. Dark brown pour with a yellowish-toffee head. Creamy coffee aroma with a touch of roast beef. Watery whiskey flavour, along with acrid roast malts.

3.9
SamVimes21 (537) - - DEC 10, 2016
Bottle from a garden centres bar, black with a beige head, dark fruit and prunes taste with a lovely smooth aftertaste will look this 1 up again.

3.7
nocheinbier (78) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2016
Deep black colour, creamy beige thin head. Dark fruit aroma. You can definitely taste the alcohol strength in it along with blackcurrants, prunes and a general fruity sweetness. It’s a great stout and well worth seeking out.

2.8
kathouse (1930) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - NOV 23, 2016
Nice looking black body with a thick light brown foam. Aroma is a mix of sugar, wood, and soy. Flavor is lightly fruity with only hints of chocolate and treacle. Not much to the finish.

3.5
MattChiasson (71) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2016
Out of the bottle poured a opaque black with a thin off-white head. I got notes of chocolate, coffee, hazelnut, molasses and cherry. Smelled more sweet than I was expecting. This was confirmed on the palate with notes of sweet roasted malt, chocolate icecream/fudgsicle, and some booze-soaked raisins. Finish was sweet. Body was more thin than I was expecting for the alcohol, perhaps indicative of adjuncts (I see corn syrup listed in the description). Personally, I thought it was ok overall. Wouldn’t drink too many of them, but would make for a nice dessert pairing.
