2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Somebody needs to notify the brewer in Belize that this ain’t a stout. Maybe a bock, but definitely too light to be a stout. But given that this is one of the only stouts you can find in Belize (others are Dragon Stout and Tennets) and it’s usually pretty hot in Belize, this isn’t too bad. And it’s much better than the normal Belikin. Which isn’t saying too much. Light malt flavor with some molasses syrup and coffee. I’ll bump it up a notch just cuz I had such an amazing vacation in Belize while drinking this stout.

Deep amber brown with off white head. Nose is light with cherry and molasses with some roasted notes. Rich flavor with a nice balance of sweet and sour. Great Beer!

Deep cherry color with a tan head.Nose is a woody port-cabernet,kinda’ sweet.This beer is a world away from their Ale.This is like a sweet stout at first then leaves a lingering sour aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A pitch black beer with a small disappearing brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with light roasted notes. The flavor is sweet, slightly roasted, but thin. An OK beer, but not a stout.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Presentation: Brown recycled bottle with a “Mayan Temple” on the label. Bottle cap is blue indicating it is a stout.
The color is a very deep red (black), and it has a nice full brown head that maintains some presence throughout. Some lace that is not very sticky. A malty, roasted aroma that is fairly one-dimensional. The flavor is sweet with a dry biting finish that lingers. The mouth feel is well balanced --has a descent amount of carbonation.

Very dark brown with a nice tan colored head. Aroma is lightly choclaty and the flavor is sweetly malty. Very good considering its country of origin.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gentle roast and slighly fruity with a subtle lactic edge. 98% opaque, very dark brown, decent head. Porter-quality palate, fair amount of carbonation. Not a great stout by any stretch, but I wouldn’t mind drinking a few of these if I were in Belize, which is more than you can say about a lot of beers in countries such as that.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from a March 2004 trip to Belize (Caye Caulker and San Ignacio). I am sitting at the end of a long dock under the palapa, the reef is a half mile out, the water is still and clear blue. It is a sunny day on Caye Caulker and everything is quiet and still. My girlfriend and I are reading books and listening to Bob Marley. We bought a half dozen Belikin beers to enjoy for the afternoon. The Belikin Stout, while thin compared to the stouts I usually enjoy, couldn’t possibly taste any better. A dark brown color with a toffee and light roasted malt flavor. As sunset aproaches we head to the "Split" to take in the magnificent sunset with Bob Marley’s "One Love" playing in the background. Life couldn’t be more perfect.
