I searched all over when I was in Belize for this brew and could not find it. My wife however surprised me with a six pack of this upon my arrival on board the Carnival Valor. Pours a dark brown with the faintest of garnet highlights when held to light. A stingy almost tan head recedes entirely to quickly. I get very little out of the nose. Corn masa is very prominent with hints of dark fruit if I stare at the glass and imagine a bit. Taste hits me with toffee and caramel up front then leads into hints of dark fruit and maybe some chocolate if I close my eyes and think of willy wonka a bit. Slightly bitter aftertaste. This is a really light "stout" maybe itís appropriate for the scorching heat they normally see in Belize. I found it rather pedestrian while sampling from NH in the 65 degree heat. Medium body and carbonation level, thin watery mouthfeel. I hate to hate on this, but as a stout this is not all that great. Compared to the light lagers available in Belize I would naturally chose this one as I am a stout head I love the dark malts. Compared to other stouts this one would rank pretty low in my book.

Sampled in Belize. Dark pour but definitely not black; think Iíll just call it dark brown. A thin head sits on top. Doesnít really taste like a Stout to me. The best way I can describe it is like a Yuengling with some mild stout-like qualities of coffee, creamy milk chocolate, and roasty grains. Itís limited, thin in the body, but very drinkable and actually, I enjoyed it. Exceeded expectations.

Bottle shared by bhensonb & Marcus. Beer has a musty sweet smell. Like an old town bakery! Taste of heavy molosses and a large number of spices.

Bottle courtesy of Phyllis. Pours dark ruby black(ruby on thin spots. Aroma suggests wet dog? Musty. Fully bodied. Flavor is dark, biting, bitter sweet malt with treacle and lots of dark fruit. Lots of flavor.

Black with mahogany highlights, thin tan head, full body, medium carbonation.

Aroma: sweet malt, note of licorice. (reminds of certain german doppelbocks).

Taste: roasted malt, hints of coffee and licorice.

Surprisingly better than expected. Could use more hops and complexity, but itís clean and pleasant, with no off-flavors.

wchesser (1245) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 13, 2010
Toasted malts, coffee notes. Sweet, almost cloying. Solid pick for spicy food, especially if served ice cold. Wouldnít seek it out, but when in Rome...Watery for the style, dark chocolate finish.

Bottle, poured a very dark brown with a thin filmy light brwon head. Sweet grainy malt aroma with a touch of staleness. Flavor was dry, grainy with a mildly sweeet finish. You could do worse.

Sampled on a recent trip to Belize. Pours a clear brown color with thin head. Aroma is faint with notes of light chocolate, hay, honey, some faint spice. Flavor is about the same. Generally light to medium body with a light malt finish.
