5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: APR 1, 2005 I drank mine straight from the bottle. The owner of a local party store gave me a 5 pack (1 missing) which was found under a shelf in the walk-in cooler, and we estimated it had been "cellared" for at least 2 years. There was a good 1/8" of dust on the bottles. The texture is a perfect blend of oiliness and carbonation. The aroma and flavor was extremely rich and satisfying, nothing overpowering, and surely not lacking. Has an effect of melted butter with pancake syrup and fresh brewed fluffy cappucino, minus some of the sweetness, but with plenty of refreshing qualities and alcohol kick. This beer is awesome!!

Great body; nice, rich, dark tone; hints of coffee and choclate.
I wish I could find some locally. Highly addictive afternoon sipper!

A great sweet/malty stout full of licorice, coffee, chocolate flavors. If you like Mackeson, youíll love this. When in Jamaica, skip the Red Stripe and search this out.

Poured chilled into dimpled tankard. Nice coffee-stain coloured head with a body so dark you canít see through it in direct light. Heavy malt feel to the beer with a taste that blends sweet and bitter perfectly. Full body with very little carbonation after the first few sips - goes down smooth.

I love this stout. Itís mild, with a hint of sweetness. Not as sweet as a Royal Extra Stout. More like a sweet Mackeson XXX.

A great sugared malty stout from the land of the sugar cane. (Okay actually itís the land of ganja, but this isnít a írateweed.comí) The saddest thing about Dragon Stout is that is has become a rarity in Jamaica. Most bars only sell Guiness and it was hard for me to find this stuff on my last trip there. Regardless, this is a sweet íchocostoutí that lovers of Mackesonís will enjoy. If you donít like dark beer however, this one will not change your opinion at all. (Note I have an 18 inch neck, tho my name isnít Gunter)

Dragon Stout is a black ale with a thick, bubbly, caramel brown head that shows good retention and lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet, with notes of molasses and brown sugar. There seems to be a smokiness to it. Itís pretty full bodied and very smooth. It is thick and chewy with a clean finish. It tastes very sweet and a little grassy. There are notes of rum and toffee. There is a slightly smoky note at the finish. Itís nice, but very sweet. Itís a good thing itís in such a small bottle.

9.6 ounce bottle- Okay, I have to admit my first thought was a stout? From Jamaica? From Red Stripe? Gonna be a loser...until I tried it! Poured out an opaque walnut brown with a moderate khaki head with excellent lacing. Aroma was dark fruit with heavy alcohol. Taste was strong dried cherries and a mellow sweetness. Palate was slightly on the thin side but exceptionally smooth. A Jamaican stout in my top 10? Who wouldíve thunk it?

Very sweet and malty, with a licorice flavor. Very enjoyable as an after-dinner beer. Much better than I expected.
