zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - APR 1, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2009 [284 ml. bottle] Poured a dark black color with a very fizzy brown head. Very odd aroma. Lots of things going on in it. A lot of sweetness and some metal and malt flavor as well. The flavor is very strange and fruity. Tastes like coffee mixed with candy. Very sweet. Too sweet for my likes. Metallic aftertaste.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Black with a tan head. Aroma of black licorice. Flavor reminds me of really strong coffee with a lot of sugar. Subtle smokiness, but not a whole lot of complexity here. High ABV can sneak up on you after a few.

BrainDead (30) - Derby, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2005
Bottle. This is a bit of fun. Not a beer to take seriously. Itís a sort of comic beer. A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down. Itís not great, itís not clever, but - apart from raging toothache from the sugar rot, this is an enjoyable ten minutes.

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 6, 2005
Found this in London, never actually saw it in Jamaica. Easy on the palate, the alcohol is well concealed. Very roasty. Not very viscous, a little thin in that respect.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2006 VEry good beer, but a little alchol stronger than common stouts, I would like it softer.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2005
bottle. pitch black, small head. sweet chocolate aroma, roasted malt, and a hint of coffee. highly carbonated, thin body. flavour is rather sweet, malty, and high in alcohol. This stout just didnít do anything for me.

JonMoore (2062) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2005
Near black with a slim tan head. Coffee and liquorice aroma. Sweet, roasted, coffee and cola taste. Full bodied, moderately carbonated. Well hidden alcohol, detected only in the warming finish. Pretty good.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2005
Bottled. Black/red colour, with a small head. Coffeish, slightly roastmalty aroma with a hint of something between cola and fruitiness. Tastes sweet, coffeish, roastmalty with notes of cola and cherries. Very nice, not as good as the Guinness Special Export I had, but still pretty nice.
