4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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 would’ve thunk it?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to LukasMH. Pours black with a small, brown head. Aroma is surprisingly not very roasty. Very malty and sweet, and with some corn. Taste is pretty sweet as well. No roast, no bitterness. More light a strong pilsner of some kind. Oh well. Not particularly bad!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
DATE TASTED: April 9, 2015... GLASSWARE: Guinness retro pint... OCCASION: a stout battle--Lion vs. Dragon... APPEARANCE: a jet black body that sees its brown head thin with some tracings and crests of lace... AROMA: some caramel to start, with pungent sugars and bubblegum; malts are dry biscuit; hops are tough to isolate... PALATE: lively, thick as molasses and creamy at the finish--fizzy at the teeth... TASTE: sugary sweet, with some mint leaves, pear and apple, and cola--a thin profile that doesn’t deter its drinker from enjoyment, but does limit the conversation about it; some cherry factors in late... OVERALL: a beer that hides its alcohol content well; the ending flavor suggests a slight astringency; the wee bottles (9.6 fluid ounces) seem quaint but stunted...a loser to the Lion Stout, but little shame in that...
