Pours a thick black from the bottle with nice tan head and light lacing. Aroma is corn syrup and malt extract. Taste follows, like a thick pale lager. If I would have seen the commercial description before buying this I never would have.

Picked this one at LCBO part of my bottled beer collection. After a year, I'm starting to feel the end of the possible selection. Tried this one, normally sold in a 6 pack. Slick straight taste of liquor, impressive for a beer. I liked the originality of such closeness. Had this one after volleyball last Tuesday while watching the recap of the Habs-Golden Knights game.

malushky (158) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2017
284 ml bottle from local store. Pours black with a fine, lasting, beige head. Lacing present. Aroma is roasted, marzipan, slight cocoa. Taste starts very sweet, berries, sugar, caramel, then roasted notes kick in, finish is bitter coffee-like. Oily texture, medium-carbonation, easy to drink for a 7.5%. Not bad, but too sweet for me.

macca147 (498) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 21, 2017
284ml bottle. Pours an ink black with a solid tan head. Aroma: bitter cocoa, roasted malt notes. Mild funkiness on the nose. Not a pleasant aroma. Taste: roasted malt, bitter cocoa, cream, brown sugar flavours. Medium body. Moderate to high sweetness. This beer is ok, not particularly complex or well balanced. It is a bit sickly sweet.

284ml bottle from Addington Stores, Reading. Black colour with tan head. Roasted malts, sweet malt, dark fruits, burnt toffee, molasses, light vanilla. Quite thin bodied for a stout but still nice.

Bijl (810) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2017
Zwart met iets lichtdoorlatende rode gloed, crèmekleurige schuimkraag  en redelijk koolzuur. Aroma: Geroosterde mout met een licht zuurtje, licht chocolade en koffie. Smaak: Vrij zoet voor een stout, karamel en kandijsuiker met wat siroop. Beetje koffie en chocolade en licht kruidig. Licht geroosterde tonen en een beetje granig. Geen rommel maar wel te zoet. Voor een stout een lichte body, iets waterig en dun. Mooie stout voor in de Jamaicaanse zon denk ik.

Rotoloboi (8) - - JUL 21, 2017 does not count
It pours a very dark, almost black colour and has a slightly burnt aroma. The taste is most unexpected, especially if you are used to Guinness and other dry stouts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MattShizzle (618) - Bernville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2017
Bottle - only 9.6 oz as opposed to typical 12 oz. Very dark - opaque. Malty aroma with some definite roastiness. Mostly sweet and malty flavor with little roast or hops. OK.
