Caramel and molasses are added to coffee and chocolate - not a bad aroma. Pours see through at the edges with a big frothy head that disappeared instantly. I got coffee and anise and while the alcohol wasn’t really present in the taste you could sense its presence. Finished slowly ad more sweet than anything else. Enjoyable.

Quite a nice stout, sure blows away red stripe. Pours like oil with a nice brown head. Aroma is nutty and espresso. Taste is nutty and sweet with a bitter alcohol burn to finish. Something I would buy again.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2004 Pitch black color, thin light brown head. Strong licorice aroma with roasty notes. Sweet licorice and caramel flavor with decent roastyness and subtle alcohol. Bitter finish. Medium body, liquorous texture, lively carbonation. This is pretty enjoyable, I wish I bought a couple more bottles.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2004
Pours dark black with short brown head. Suprisingly malty sweet aroma with a bit of roast grain/coffee behind it. Flavour is leaning more towards liquorice, quite sweet. Thin though smooth mouthfeel. Not bad, and ABV is well masked.

burcusabrews (106) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 7, 2004
Deep balck witha thin mocha head. Aromas of cherries and sour milk. Very light on the roasted malts! Creamy mouthfeel (but could be bigger) notes of coffee and toast. Very little aftertaste. No lingering bitterness. Nice stout for the summer but would leave me quite disappointed on the cold winter night.

Dark with light off white head. Cherry nose with tootsie roll. Liquorice, chocolate, carmel with a dry coffee finish. Tasty, definatly a good brew!

igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - SEP 2, 2004
284ml bottle A deep black color with a fine light brown head (little retention). The carbonation shows up on the edges of the lace. The Aromas are of roasted malt, coffee and alcohol. The taste is sweet (light) with a slow dry bite. Mouth feel is rather thin with a dry finish. Refreshing, well balanced and uncomplicated. A stout?

Sammy (9450) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2004
Roasty coffee flavour disguises alcohol. On smooth side compared to national brands. Popular with mates. But would get bored after half a bottle. Bit aggressive carbonation, malt and syrupy sweet. Dark brown pleasing head. More than acceptable as transition beer to micros.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2004
sweet and malty stout... not sure what to expect from a jamaican brew, but it certainly lived up to the coffee flavour. All other flavours were somewhat muted until the residue at the end. There are better ones out there.
