330ml Can: Pours a jet black with thin tan head that dissipates quickly. Lacing. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt and some caramel. Slight liquorice notes on flavour.medium bodied, medium carbonation, low bitterness. Overall a very close second to castle milk stout. Very nice.

330ml can. Dark brown with tan head. Coffee and chocolate aroma. A bit light on flavour. Perhaps it’s because the colour is making expect the flavour of a porter or stout. Mouthfeel is fairly thin. Still, a reasonably enjoyable beer. Sampled as part of the SAB Beers For Africa box. Beerkenstock (113) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2017
Eye: pours a dark brown color with a quickly dissipating white head and medium carbonation.
Nose: dark fruit, chocolate and caramel perhaps
Mouth: sweet licorice, dark chocolate and caramel or even vanilla, dark fruits as well (dates perhaps...), a bit watery and not much carbonation though
Palate: more bitter notes here, nuts as well but still sweet
Overall: nice, very drinkable beer which reminds me more of a mix between dark and porter. deyholla (11608) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Bottle shared by Caleb, thanks! Pours dark brown with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has sweet dark grains and a strong straw note with a touch of hay. Flavor has earth sweet dark grains with a decent amount of straw and a hint of roast.

Bottle @ The Levi Tasting. Thanks, travlr! Deep brown with a small head. Rich malt forward nose. Caramel chocolate cookie. Some plum. Brown sugar. Flavor is a bit knackered. Some signs of oxidzation. Cocoa and caramel sweet body. Light cardboard. Peppery fijish. A bit oily, soft. thomashall (994) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Bottle shared at tasting. Brown copper pour. Aroma is malts and licorice. Taste is more dry and ashy. Not my favorite. JK (6162) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Shared by evan, thanks!. Dark brown color. Dry malt and a little sugar, some earth near the finish. I like this. It is close to the real thing, except for the lack of carbonation. Bacterial (2999) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2016
