Parmenion777 (259) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2017
Pours a black colour with a small light tan head. A roasty aroma, burnt caramel and malts. Quite sweet, alcohol prominent, some coffee and burnt caramel flavours. Some oiliness, thin and no depth in the finish. Not great.

gripweed57 (2163) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 23, 2017
From old tasting notes. Opaque dark brown color topped with a creamy light brown head. Light sweet caramel malt nose. Extremely sweet flavor with a coffee-like character. Full bodied. Some dryness in finish. Bittersweet aftertaste lies long on the palate. Interesting.

BrewWhatIWant (168) - 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 its not great. It reminds me of Cuban cocktails.

nocheinbier (46) - 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. Its a great stout and well worth seeking out.
