bigguns22 (798) - Maryland, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Not very good tast is very medicinal and cheap tasting for a big body stout. Pour is black with a medium tan head. Aroma is sweet and malty. Had high hopes for this one was let down. On a trip to San pedro island found this was looking for a bigger beer then belikin stout. Sweet sweet and more sweet.

MattShizzle (613) - 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.

Bottle from Beers of the World. Aroma of cocoa and coffee malt. Unfortunately, it’s completely overpowered by corn syrup.

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. Bittersweet aftertaste lies long on the palate.

Parmenion777 (293) - 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 (2445) - 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.

2.8
BrewWhatIWant (211) - 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.

3.3

phfyysik (1269) - Tartu, ESTONIA - FEB 27, 2017
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!

4.5
HopsTamer43 (1) - - FEB 24, 2017 does not count
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.
