Cimbasso (328) - - OCT 19, 2014
Pours a very dark brown colour with a beige head. Aromas of toffee and alcohol. The taste is very full with hints of liquorice, tobacco and banana. Quite sweet and rather creamy. A decent alcoholic strength gives this stout plenty of backbone. Nice dry finish with sweet, vanilla overtones. A good foreign stout.

Black beer with a creamy head and yeasty smell of fruit and malt. Flavour is light sour fruit. Not much body to it but itís not watery either. Not special but drinkable all the same.

MacBoost (1452) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - OCT 1, 2014
284ml bottle from shelf. Pours a dark brown with ruby edges and a small off white head. Aromas of tobacco, dark fruit and cigarette butts. NICE! I love these kind of beers. Taste is some dark fruit, molasses, nicotine. finsihes semi dry with plenty of buttfucking pleasure. Nice, like a thick Jamacian cock in your ass.

This is now back in my local Tesco. Drinkable stout although rather sweet and sticky, doesnít really feature any of the aspects I associate with this type of beer.

Hanoi (558) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
Nose is muted, sugar, lactose, malt. Taste is typical West Indian Stout; very sweet, brown sugar, milk, cola, coco. Mouthfeel a touch thin. Itís a nice example of the regionís drinks, but I will always find them too sweet.
