FatTony (188) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - JAN 17, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2015 9.6 ounce bottle- Okay, I have to admit my first thought was a stout? From Jamaica? From Red Stripe? Gonna be a loser...until I tried it! Poured out an opaque walnut brown with a moderate khaki head with excellent lacing. Aroma was dark fruit with heavy alcohol. Taste was strong dried cherries and a mellow sweetness. Palate was slightly on the thin side.

250ml bottle. Dark brown pour with a yellowish-toffee head. Creamy coffee aroma with a touch of roast beef. Watery whiskey flavour, along with acrid roast malts.

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.

kathouse (1748) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - NOV 23, 2016
Nice looking black body with a thick light brown foam. Aroma is a mix of sugar, wood, and soy. Flavor is lightly fruity with only hints of chocolate and treacle. Not much to the finish.

MattChiasson (70) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2016
Out of the bottle poured a opaque black with a thin off-white head. I got notes of chocolate, coffee, hazelnut, molasses and cherry. Smelled more sweet than I was expecting. This was confirmed on the palate with notes of sweet roasted malt, chocolate icecream/fudgsicle, and some booze-soaked raisins. Finish was sweet. Body was more thin than I was expecting for the alcohol, perhaps indicative of adjuncts (I see corn syrup listed in the description). Personally, I thought it was ok overall. Wouldnt drink too many of them, but would make for a nice dessert pairing.

Bottle - dark, small off white head quickly disappears. Decent chocolate aroma. Ting on tongue and in mouth. Too sweet tasting, not picking up stout qualities. Aroma better than taste.

Saeglopur (1929) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - NOV 1, 2016
284 ml bottle from a supermarket in London, bb 16 Jan 18.
Dark brown body, with a big, dense, creamy, lacing, dark beige head.
Aroma of caramel, coffee, toast, dark fruits.
Tastes of caramel, cheap chocolate, sugar, dark fruits, some coffee.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes sweet, moderate roasty, with caramel, chocolate, sugar, slight coffee.

OK. Much too sweet for my liking, almost sticky, not too much Stout character. Still not a bad beer, but propably wouldnt drink this again.

Bottle. Clear dark beer with light foam and caramel aroma. Tastes lightly bitter and alcoholic with a sweet and dry aftertaste. Medium body with oily, creamy texture, and lively carbonation. Unlikely to drink again.
