Pours a barely transparent dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of sweet sugary malts, dark fruits and authentic foreign stout character. Starts sweet sugary and malty with a smooth viscous lightly roasted finish. A sweet, true to style beer. wanderingman (54) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2006
Probably one of the more complex beers that I have tried, but unforunitely not one of my favourites. Points for a thick head that stuck around till almost the end. A bit too many sweet flavours (cherries and some chocolate) for what I like in a stout. Not really something I would go out of my way to get. iambeer (255) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2006
Sugar and burnt wood come to mind, the bitterness there, but really dosent impress the palate, liked it but not much. Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2006
A refreshing change from the average stout this one offers a nice sweet scent and a rich taste sweet with cherry. Almost tastes like cherry cough medicine, but in a good way. I enjoyed this one. gnoff (10426) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 9, 2006

Bottle at Delirium Café in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Black color, small brown head. Rich fresh sweet scent. Medium body. Sweet taste and aftertaste.
284 ml bottle from Seow Edward & Sons Ltd. Ocho Rios, Jamaica. Sampled on March 9, 2015.
Black color, light brown head. Sweet, roasted, ash scent. Sweet, rich, alcohol taste, some raisins. Sweet, roasted aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, medium low bitterness.
Dark brown body. Dry aroma - roast and dry chocolate. Peppermint, lime, light cherry in the flavor finishing with a light woody char. Decent stuff. pivnizub (10621) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 31, 2006
Bottle: Almost black, small, but firm brownish head; sweet (dark) malt in the nose, molasses and chocolate, imaginary traces of old rum (!); sweet chocolatey flavour; sweetish, fruity (vinous) finish with a bit longer lasting chocolatey bitterness, warming. Not bad, but a bit too much on the sweet side....... Tobias10 (99) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2006
Very sickly sweet, its a nice malty sweet though. Its looks nice, with a really deep colour and an off white head. Couldnt drink more than a couple of bottles though. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 27, 2006
Bottled. Poured a deep iced tea brown with a tall cap of beige head. Very light roast to the aroma, which was comprised primarily of light fruits, weak oak, and an array of dark sugars. Flavor was similar, but picked up semi-sweet chocolate, too. Light-medium body and fairly smooth on the palate.. some sour notes in there. Just OK. 1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 26, 2006
The beer pours to a red/brown hued body with a thin tan head. The aroma is sweet light chocolate chips. The flavor is really sweet chocolate malt. The palate is overly sweet.
