Bottle in Belize pours opaque black to cola brown with thick tan head Nose milk chocolate and sweet malt. Taste very light roast, milk chocolate , hint of red fruit. Mild roasty bitter finish. Not as smooth of moth feel as expected, but not bad. For Caribbean beer, this is pretty good.

Dark black pour with about a finger of tan head. Sweet chocolate and roasty aroma. Sweet but dry chocolate taste with hints of coffee and cocoa. A bit thin but still a decent beer.

Sweet chocolate and a touch fruity with light bitterness in the finish. Nice full, creamy texture. Good beer.

Bork (455) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Nice looking brew that is overtaken by the less than pleasant aroma of sour milk. Taste is tart and lightly acidic. Misses the target.

"great roasted dry nose, similar flavors, but a little watery...otherwise it would be a very good stout. nice, long finish. worth it at trader joes for $5 a sixer, for sure."

Inky black. Not a skerrick of a suggestion of another colour in the dimple of the glass and a mocha coloured head that looked like you could scoop it off and eat it like mousse. The aromas are of sweet chocolate mousse with dusty cocoa and some molasses. It has every suggestion that I will love this beer. Take the aromas and multiply the intensity in the flavour in a remarkably sweet body. Tinges of caramel appear in the finish. A deserved classic and a glasstip to Canatabrian for the experience.

Drank from a bottle. I was surprised how good this beer tastes! It has a smooth, sweet taste with some coffee and chocolate.

JesseMartineau (91) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 19, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2014 330ml bottle. Pours black with thick tan head. Aromas of chocolate coffee. Taste of a little coffee, almost like an oatmeal stout but then the sweetness hits you. Well balanced

3.8
DocJitsu (2013) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Very nice looking dark brown-black with a frothy Irish coffee head. Raw egg yolk nose. Smooth, thick mouthfeel. Egg yolky flavor with some chocolate, oatmeal, dark fruit, and sorghum.

pintbypint (3723) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 7, 2014
Poured from a bottle at Edmonton Craft Beer Fest ’14. Black pour, thin brown head. Oily appearance. Nose was sweet with chocolate and caramel. Taste of chocolate, caramel, molasses with some roast at the end. Overall an ok stout, but would not need a whole pint of this.
