bottle from eyedrinkale. sweet and tangy aroma, spicy but not peppery-spice, more like anise and licorice spice. malt and roast, with a sweet alcoholic tinge at the end. lightly acidic and bitter throughout despite the overall sweetness (is that a contradiction? somehow, not really). not all that exciting, but nothing wrong with it.

(bottle) Darkest brown colour with a small creamy brown head. Sweet roasted malt aroma with caramel, chocolate and hints of alcohol. Sweet flavour, medium to full bodied, medium carbonated. Sweet roastmalty taste with caramel, dried fruits and liquorice. Sweet malty finish covering almost all the alcohol with a shy bitter note. A sweet but not unpleasant Stout.

Forte, riche et beaucoup de saveur (café, cacao, lait). Et croire que ça vient du Jamaique. Boire ça avec du pot ce serait-il bon? anders37 (26878) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 19, 2006
Bottle. It pours a nearly black colour with a quich fading tan coloured head. It has a little roasty smell, hints of coffee malt too. The taste is sweet. It is also roasted and some milky taste. hints of coffe and licorice too. The aftertaste is sweet and fruity. Not a bad beer but i like my stouts not as sweet as this one.

Lightish black (I know..) body with a moderate head. Aroma is licorice and chocolate dominating some coffee. A hint of darker fruits in there. Flavor is the same, solid. Aurelius (5496) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 25, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2005 A delicious dark chocolate cookie aroma -- doughy and bittersweet. Deep deep ruby brown, big dark tan head, good label, wee 11.2 oz bottle. Sweet, malty, tart, some high gravity homebrew elements. I can imagine that a number of these would put a foot in one’s arse on some sunny Carribean barstool. Not very bitter. Finishes chocolate. Medium body, a bit watery feeling at times - not from being thin, but from losing some CO2. thedm (6309) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 25, 2005
The DM & Hotstuff vacation tour July 2005. This bottled brew from Stouts in NYC poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized mostly lasting light brown colored bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body contained no visible carbonation, was opaque and black in color. Its aroma contained notes of vinous Worcestershire sauce dark malts and mild raisins. Its mouth feel is initially slightly tingly thick with a lingering slightly tingly palate and a hoppy aftertaste that soon fades. Its flavor contained good vinous dark malty notes. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2005
Very dark brown with a brown head. The aroma is liquorice and bready malt. The taste is intensely sweet, alcoholic and full of chocolate. Quite basic and unsubtle, but remarkably good. Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2005
Bottle (from Asda, BBE Jan 07). Sweet liquorice roast aromas. Roasty liquorice fades somewhat in the body leaving a peversely thin yet sweet and partly fermented feel. Interesting enough but not to my taste.
