3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very dark brown with an orangish brown head. Aroma is roasted malt and chocolate. Flavor is sweet roasty malt, caramel, dry milk chocolate, coffee, and fruit including dark bitter notes and berries. Medium body with soft carbonation and a dry finish. Pretty good yet subdued stout.

Sample at Brew Pub. Fruit is very subtle, but there. I thought pineapple, but mainly tastes like a good stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Barley Johns. Rarely do I get to try a new Foreign stout, let alone the sub category of Tropical stout... Pours to a pitch black body with a light tan head. Black malt with a dry char aroma. The flavor has a light papaya flavor up front that is nearly immediately covered by the significant black malt. A little sweetness among the dry roasted coffee. Medium body has a lingering char.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Compared to a couple other beers (Dark Knight and Sour Brunette) I had before this, I found this more subdued, and the ’"tropical" aspect was not very pronounced. Still a respectable stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Has some nice light chocolate and coffee scents with a bit of fruit. Taste is similar but the fruit and roast balances well together, solid beer.

Tap at the brewpub. Very dark brown pour with a brownish head. Pours thicker. Sweet chocolate and light fruit on the nose. Creamy full palate. Taste is sweet, then roasty bitter late. Delicious.
