Having a few on vacation in Belize. Pours a dark brown with a small, creamy tan head. Aroma of coffee grounds and a little brown sugar. Taste is also heavy on coffee, with a little sweetness to balance. Perfectly fine stout, and a good change from the usual lager-heavy Caribbean fare.

12 ounce bottle poured in a plastic cup while waiting to get back on the tender for the cruise, poured a dark blackish color with aromas of roast, coffee, and booze. Flavors followed suit, I couldn’t savor it due to time, but a decent offering for the $2.50 price tag.

Bottle in Ervas restaurant in San Ignacio, Belize. More of a dark ale than a stout. Strong taste of treacle and alcohol. Quite thick texture that sicks to the tongue.

Bottle from Shell One Stop, Orange Walk Town. It pours dark brown, with a thin light brown head. The nose is caramel, roasted malt, coffee and some alcohol. The taste is roasted malt, bitter coffee, burnt rubber, ash, underlying caramel, metal and a touch of alcohol warmth, with a decent bitter-dry finish. Medium body and moderate, prickly carbonation. Not bad, much better than the other Belizean pale lagers anyway!

Dark and a good tan head. Bitter roasted malt with some maply sweetness but mostly dominated by the bitterness. It starts off with a shape carbonated punch. The taste is satisfying malty bitter. Good stuff. Its kicking ass at this little bar somewhere in Belize.

Dry toffee-caramel flavor, not too syrupy or cloying....a bit skunked perhaps but quite a nice addition to the usual PL fare available down in the tropics! Taste improves in direct proportion to amount consumed

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown/black pour with tan head and lace. Aroma of sweet roasted malt with a hinto coffee. Grainy roasted malt, some coffee, with a toffee sweetness which is almost cloying. Thin bodied with good carbonation. Beer got better after I bought 2 for $5 and carried them around. As they warmed they grew better (maybe I grew drunker), but I did enjoy them.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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 it’s 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 I’ll just call it dark brown. A thin head sits on top. Doesn’t 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. It’s limited, thin in the body, but very drinkable and actually, I enjoyed it. Exceeded expectations.
