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.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2017 Almost black color. Nice , beige head. Malt , chocolate, candies, some dark fruits in aroma. Roasted malt and chocolate in sweet taste ( not over sweetened though). Decent beer

0.284 bottle @ Davies Court
Black with a tanned head. Aroma of dark malts, and bread. Taste is sweet, candy, syrupy. Medium, oily, soft. Finish is full of bananas and syrup. Overall, hard to compare, resembles the caramelized banana dessert.

Pours black with thick, dense and durable head. Aroma is brown sugar and caramel. Taste is sugar sweetness, combined with tart cherries. Finish is smooth and creamy. A decent stout.

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.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2017 284ml from bottle bought at Tesco. Aroma to cocoa and burnt caramel, strong flavour with a slight touch to alcohol.

macca147 (627) - 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.

Soupordean (97) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2017
