COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A similar brewing process to lagers with the use of lager yeast is used in the production of Royal Extra Stout. Fermentation time is much shorter than lagers, and takes place at a higher temperature. Finings traditionally composed of isinglass (fish bladder protein) are designed for yeast removal used during conditioning (storage) prior to filtration. It is also gives the aphrodisiac connotation.

Best beer I had in the Caribbean. Dark with a majestic tan foam. Aroma of chocolate and bready malts. Medium body with a residual sweetness and a chocolate finish. Like an Irish Stout but not as dry. My bottle said brewed in St. Kitts.

Enjoyed a bottle of this beer in a Caribbean restaurant. The beer had a pretty thick black-dark brown color with an average-sized foamy tan head with modest retention, cling, and lacing. Its aroma featured some roasty notes of chocolate, coffee, and caramel malt, along with a bit of earthy and grainy hops. It was a somewhat sweet beer with a blend of chocolate and caramel malt, but also had a bit of earthy bitterness blended into the flavor. The beer was somewhat watery and creamy with average to mild carbonation and was fairly wet.

My grateful thanks to Cantabrian, who brought this back to Christchuch from God-knows-where specifically for me. What a lovely bloke. This is seriously dark beer with just a skerrick of cherry in the dimple of the glass. There is a whorl of greyish head on top that looks like a miniature galaxy. The aromas are of cool chocolate, charcoal and cola nut. To taste it is sweet, oily and like a brownie, only liquid. It develops into cola flavours and then green herbal licorice. It’s tasty, but if I don’t get a shot of insulin I may get carted off to hospital. Thanks Eduardo!

Bottle. Mine said brewed in St. Kitts. Dark brown pour with a mocha head. Roasted malts, coffee, and brown sugar highlights. Surprisingly good. Above average body and mouthfeel. Bravo...

JDBaker11058 (1211) - Maryland, USA - APR 1, 2014
Appearance: very dark brown with purplish highlights and a short, creamy tan head. Aroma: molasses, light chocolate, cherry, balsamic vinegar. Taste: as the aroma indicates. Finish: smooth, clean, and sweet, with a lingering fruity note. Notes: Exemplary of the style. Unexpectedly good.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Sean. Pours a pitch black color with a medium light brown head. A light nose of lactose and metal. A nice flavor consisting of metallic roast, sweet smoke and molasses, some sweeter caramel. Pretty much spot on for the style, very drinkable and very enjoyable.

Bottle. Pitch black in color with minimal head. Brownish in color. Aroma of milk chocolate and a touch of coffee. Taste is similar with a slight watery mouthfeel. Not that great.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2014 Bottled 28/12/13. A black beer with a dissipating off-white head. A disappointingly thin aroma. Quite sweet in the mouth with a bit of saltiness. Doesn’t drink its strength. Becomes fairly tasty but a below par foreign stout. Score 3.2
Subsequent rating scored 3.6. Average becomes 3.4

Dark brown almost black with almost no head. Sweet aroma like molasses. Sweet taste of malt and molasses with a watery malt finish.
