joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 9, 2003
Dark brown w/ ruby hue. Creamy beige head. Sweet chocolate nose w/ notes of coffee, cinnamon, nutmeg, & fruit. Creamy fell (perhaps chalky). Sweet, roasty flavour of christmas cake, fruit (cherry, figs), molasses, cinnamon & ginger. Slight alcoholic bitterness in the finish. Frankly, I was surprised that I liked the beer this much.

This is where I get confused. Some brewers just can't do lighter beers, but challenge thm with a stout and up pops this. It is sweet but it does have a lot of strength in its body and mouthfeel, and it is clear that the sweetness is from malt rather than a non-fermentable.

pondoshuffles (141) - Fitzroy Harbour, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2003
A Caribbean stout with loads of molasses, licorice and date fruit. The sweetness is quite apparent, perhaps too sweet? Overall, good but not great.

tallmatt67 (99) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 21, 2003
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!

RobBestwick (585) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 17, 2003
toasted malt nose, black hue with a good brown head, strong malt and chocolate character, very thick on the palate, above average stout.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAY 7, 2003
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.

brewboy (152) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 5, 2003
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.

bierkoning (10163) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2003
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.

MartinT (7797) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 5, 2003
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...

DukeofYork (44) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2003
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.
