284ml bottle (£1.49, Costcutter, London):
Dark black colour with a thumb sized and foamy looking white head that holds incredibly well and looks rather thick. There was a nice amount of lacing too.

Sweet smelling beer with a pleasant dark chocolate and caramel aroma coupled with some darker fruits such as raisin and figs. There was a touch of plum as well and a sort of milky chocolate aroma towards the end along with a slight touch of alcohol coming through.

Milky chocolate base with some light coffee and some stronger caramel together with the same combination of darker fruits found in the nose, notably fig, plum and raisin along with some sugar sweetness from these.

A medium body with a smooth taste and a very sweet, alcohol laced mouthfeel that was slightly creamy on the finish.

Strong and sweet beer with good depth of flavour and a lot going on with it. A good beer to drink and one that despite the hints of alcohol also went down very easily. Probably not quite as good as Lion Stout but certainly a beer I would have again should the opportunity arise.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.75

A: Deep black with a small brown head.

S: Plums, raisins, chocolate, wood chippings.

T: Very sweet, but not sickly - strong malty flavour with lots of dark fruit.

M: Slightly over-carbonated, in a fizzy unappealling way - a bit like drinking coke.

This was much better than I'd anticipated - I definitely preferred it to Nigerian guinness which is probably the closest thing I've had - it didn't have the unpleasant lactic sourness of the guinness. Unfortunately the well-balanced flavour profile wasreally let down by excessive carbonation.
