COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed for those dark malt drinkers, Strong Back is a smooth high alcohol content stout beer. With roasted barley, special fermentation and powerful yeast that is cold filtered, with no artificial color. Strong Back has a rich thick feel that brings out all flavors to a mouth coating sensation and pleasant bitterness.

In the shadow of the phenomenal success of its first product SANDS beer, the Bahamian Brewery and Beverage Company softly launched another product to the Bahamian public. "Strong Back is our latest product and a truly genuine Bahamian stout" said owner James "Jimmy" Sands.

"I had a few goals when I decided to open my own brewery and one was to offer Bahamians their own stout, rich in taste but not bitter in after-taste."

The stout, formidably named Strong Back, is a dark beer created by using roasted malts or roast barley, and will now make the third product for the all-Bahamian brewery in Grand Bahama.

Strong Back met with great success from local fans of the Brewery, including the very supportive Grand Bahama shipyard crew who often visit and even have cookouts on the grounds. One such employee was heard commenting to the local radio announcers who were on site that you should "drink Strong Back every day cause it keeps the heart attacks away!"

llcooldave (1118) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Pours black in the glass, with a tan head that never really subsides. Smooth mellow flavor of roasted malt, cocoa with a hint of a mocha coffee bitterness in the aftertaste. Weak aroma roasted malt. Overall, a very nice stout for warm weather. It’s not too heavy, just right. Thanks to BarZigKin for giving me a bottle of this from his cruise.

Dark brown pour thick dense head. Aroma of barley, tang. Tastes grainy, earthy dirt some saccharine. Slight bitter chocolate. Slight thick to palate but mostly watery. Great offering for a Caribbean beer, the best of my trip. Alcohol is well hidden and smooth.

11.2 oz bottle 1/27/14 (Cruise Port)-Pours a brownish black with a small head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, roasted malts, and slight chocolate. Taste of the same with some slight coffee. This full bodied brew was quite tasty and blew away any expectations I had. Nice job.
