330 ml bottle. Pours opaque with a thick uneven mocha head. Aromas are molasses and black licorice. Tastes are an odd mix of molasses, toasty malts, and acidity. Thick and oily texture, strong carbonation, long acidic finish. The lactose based acidity did not work for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Black color. Thin , beige head. Aroma of sweet molasses, caramel and coffee. Sweet , caramel taste with moderate, roasted bitterness at the end. Usually I don't like such a sweet brews , but this one was very smooth and drinkable. .

Originally rated on 4/11/08- The body was blacker than black, the head was light brown and creamy, lacing on the glass was about average for this type of thick beer. brewed with lactose sugar the sweetness balanced out with the bitterness of malts. hints of roasted chocolate malts flavor this triple stout. overall this is a decent stout, not something i would drink often, but every now and then it is a good for a change of pace.

Dark brown molasses with a thick caramel colour head. The foamy bubbles quell and settle down quickly. Scents of burnt white bread toast, roasted coffee beans, subtle vanilla bean and honey. Sweet brew aroma. Dessert beer, light savory flavours of butter, would pair very well with pecan pie.

It pours dark brown, almost opaque black; the head is tan and effervescent. The aroma has notes of: coffee, milk chocolate, burnt sugar, and toasted barley. The taste is medium light sweet that finishes lightly dry; there are notes of: toasted barley, chocolate, cracker, plums, and espresso. The palate is medium light bodied with light carbonation; the mouth feel is slick and the finish is medium. Overall, very refreshing and tasty - right amount of sweetness.

275 ml bottle, bought in Barbados by a friend. Brewed in Trinidad & Tobago. ABV is 4.9%. Black colour, large tan head. Sweetish aroma of lactose and moderately roasted malts, hints of sweetened mild coffee, liquorice and chocolate. Smooth mouthfeel. Medium sweet flavour, notes of lactose, roasted malts and coffee, roasty and hoppy bitterness in the finish.
