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?

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
9.6 oz. bottle. Black, with a small but persistent, tan head. Milk chocolate and molasses dominate the aroma, with some phenolic notes and syrup. Very sweet flavor, with a very slight, almost medicinal hint. Medium to heavy body, and very syrupy. Overall, this is a very sweet and forward stout. Not very complex, but still a tasty beer.

Bottle. This is a pretty bad stout that you can tell has lots of non malt additives to boosrt the ABV. It tastes of corn sugar and bad hopping.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Creamy tan head over clear black body with deep ruby highlights. Aroma of roast and burnt caramel, dough, chocolate, cherry/raisins. Taste of big chocolate milk flavor, very smooth and silky, roast and coffee, prune and dark/burnt caramel. Quite sweet, but smooth and milky. Sweet finish, would be awesome in a beer float. Good desert beer.

Smell was very bad to me. The taste is alright. You get a bit of coffee and chocolate, but not much. If it weren’t for the putrid smell this would probably be alright.

Fizzier than I like in a stout, but pleasantly warming. A bit like friendships. Good ones.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a thick black from the bottle with nice tan head and light lacing. Aroma is corn syrup and malt extract. Taste follows, like a thick pale lager. If I would have seen the commercial description before buying this I never would have.

Not a bad beer but the extra strong alcoholic taste can be a bit strong at the end.
