Sweet & malty. Black with a lovely brown head. Lowish carbonation with a viscous cloying sticky mouthfeel... that was delightful! Subtle anise notes and roasty character. Sweet sticky finish in the Caribbean Stout style. Recommended!

Bottled. Pitch black, with a brown stout scum (yum!!). Sweet, sweet malt. Yes, this beer was a lovely blend of sweetness and malt. Smoooooothhh palate, yah-no-what-I-mean.

Almost black in colour with loads of roasted malt and fruity aroma. Full bodied and deceptively high on the ABV. Not overly complex in it's makeup, but that is partly the charm of this stout. Very much what you see is what you get. Certainly likeable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep dark color, almost black. Roasted malt aroma with tropical fruit. Full bodied. Roasted malt and coffee flavor. Hint of sourness with lots of tropical fruit and just a bit of glue. Deceptive thirst quencher, not very complex but certainly likeable.

Sugar coated nut spores sprinkled on an old tree...Farcical hops grow and deranged chocolate eggs abound...The template for a pleasant but weird Easter...

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thinish, sparkling head, pale brown. Black - totally opaque. Sweet, toffee and liquorice in the nose, even chilled I get alcohol burn. Thick, sweet, alcohol and roast in the rear. Oily. Not nearly as nice as Caribbean Guinness FES.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Typcial stout but lacking the foamy head. Very alcoholic nose, I suppose it is similar to Caribbean rum. Very strong rich tasting beer which is very smooth on the palate with a slight coffee and burnt aftertaste. I am getting more impressed with sweet stouts each time I have one.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The smell of this beer was like Caribbean rum and the beer poured a black color with a lasting tan head. The taste was very sweet and very thick in the mouthfeel. A nice stout, but one you cannot drink too often because it tends to be a little sweet.

From Jamaica man, very rummy, with a slightly sweet chocaltely undertone. One of the thickest stouts I have had, definitely one to drink with a spoon.
