These guys seem to like making stouts. Unfortunately, every one seems to fall a bit shorty of the mark. Pours dark brown with a light brown creamy head. Smells of raisins and chocolate. Tastes of cocoa and earthy hops. Finishes watery.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
An overall nice sweet stout: body is fairly light in a creamy way, a great match for the flavor, which is sweet but not overly so, just enough to earn its title. A little bit of chocolate flavor, tempered by something lighter. Felt lively on the tongue, but not so much that it ruined it.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint at brewpub. Advertised as a Jamaican Brown Sugar stout. Sweet chocolate aroma with vanilla aromas and a few hints of anise. Rather sweet aroma that is pleasant. I also detect a little coffee in the aroma as well. Nearly opaque dark brown/black color with a small tan head that is quickly dissipating. Carbonated, roasty chocolate flavors are present early on, which turn a little sweeter as time goes on. Even though this is brewed with brown sugar, it is not as sweet as I expected. Some anise is present in the end with a mild bitter hoppiness. This beer is too carbonated and the lack of head is disappointing. Other than that, the flavor and aroma are nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown with a thick tan head that leaves a nice sheet of lace. Aroma of roasted malts and brown sugar. Thinnish body, dry stout flavor despite the burnt sugar sweetness. Roasted, black malt and cocoa malt flavors. Thin but nicely flavored and adequately hopped.
