Bottled. Very black with big, firm beige head. Aroma of chocolate pudding. Sweet and raisiny with raw Carnegie Porter style mellow malt character. Thick with plenty of molasses and syrup. Could possibly become something worthwile after a few years in the cellar. rlgk (18847) - GŲteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2004

Bottled, 330ml from S.H Jones, Banbury. Black with tan head. Quite sweet and sticky initially, full om the palate, some rich roastiness, but the sweetness does dominate. Some late fruitiness. Bov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 4, 2001faroeviking (10838) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 21, 2007
Bottle. Black colour with a medium creamy beige head. Aroma of caramel, sweet dark chocolate and roasted malts, which very much noticeable in the flavour too, along with some coffee and a roasty dry bitter chocolate finish.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2006 Bottled from Ramís Supermarket in Montserrat. Presumably this version is made somewhre in the Caribbean but where wasnít clear from the label. Deep chocolate brown colour. Beige head. Malty aroma. Burnt treacle toffee flavour with a smooth texture and a slightly sweet finish. Very palatable after all the bland lager I had drunk in the Caribbean. Iím not sure how appreciative Iíd be in other circumstances.

Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival 2004.
Black with a creamy head.
ARoma and flavour with coffee and milk-chocolate.
A bit thin. berkshirejohn (6451) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2008
33cl bottle from Plonkers, Derby. Black with a thick loose tan head and a ruby tint. Aroma of sweet roasted malts and some chocolate - there is none of the bitterness that often comes with over-roasting. The flavour is oily with hints of chocolate and coffee mingling with plums and other soft fruit. Then a dry, warming, bitter finish develops with a touch of port.mansquito (6328) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 2, 2006
A tasty stout, nicely balanced and lacking the harsh coffee edge of many others.
Bottled in Belize (why this beer is in Belize, I will never know). Really thick and sweet beer. Tasted like straight up chocolate. Almost hard to drink for myself. It definately had a complex palate that was superior to many other beers, but the flavour didnít really do it for me. The tastes were overpowering and left the taste in my mouth for a little too long.
