Malty aroma, toffee, soy sauce, molasses. Dark brown black with light tan head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Starts sweet, with toffee and molasses, but not a lot of depth. Light nutty finish, low acidity. After is medium cafe sweet.

Bottled, thanks jazz88 for this new country!
Opaque black, brownish head. Apple aroma. Sweet and lightly roasty. Medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel and a salty, tarry finish. A bit raw.

The dark beer of Belize. Basically modeled after Guinness Extra Stout. Dark color with little head. Aroma is distinct and sweet. The flavor is stout...duh...and hints with some sweetness still. A solid aftertaste. Grab this beer in Belize and enjoy this more alcoholic and sweeter tropical version of Guinness.

The Stouts of the Caribbean are strong, sweet versions of their Irish ancestors. The Belize Brewing Company also bottles a Belizean version of Guinness in the same plant, which is a better choice if you're having a Caribbean style Stout.

My bottle was slightly metallic in flavor. Some faint roasty qualities and a dark hue but pretty blah. It has the body of a chihuahua. Definitely a novelty beer. The 6.8 is a nice plus though.

Only had one of these when in Belize. I consider myself a fan of the stout, but this one leaves me wondering, why? It had a very roasty flavor, but almost completely lacked body. I know that this is because no one wants to suck down a heavy beer in the Caribbean, but it just doesn’t suit the style for me.
