Bottle from local supermarket. Poured almost pitch black with a large tan head. Aroma of liquorice, blackjack sweets and some dark malt. Oily mouthfeel, but not that creamy or full. Some coffee and earth in the initial flavour, but turned too sweet and chocolately in the palate. olliejobbins (1578) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2013

Cheap and cheerful from Lidl. Must be the run down before the release of the new bottle. Dark, medium bodied, some nutty flavours, with more coffee and hint of molasses. Not bad. Not brilliant, but not bad. BrunoVille (50) - BRAZIL - JUN 6, 2013
Very dark, almost black color, with beige foam.
Smells like bread, toasted, and a bit of caramel
Predominant taste is chocolate and toasted, with a bit of coffee
