FatTony (175) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - JAN 17, 2013
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?

Metalflake (4) - Les Coteaux, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 21, 2014 does not count
Bottle bought from the LCBO inCornwall, ON. Poured into a shaker. Deep brown/black in colour, with a toffee-coloured head that holds for a good while. Delicate lacing on the glass. Aromas of vanilla, alcohol, banana and overripe fruit. Heavy, creamy mouthfeel, prominent alcohol heat. Taste was VERY sweet for a stout - flavours of blackstrap molasses, raisins, dates, booze...what a Christmas plum pudding would be if it were a stout :-) Really more like a heavy porter than a stout, this beer - not my cup of tea, but glad I got the chance to try it anyway.

Cimbasso (120) - - OCT 19, 2014
Pours a very dark brown colour with a beige head. Aromas of toffee and alcohol. The taste is very full with hints of liquorice, tobacco and banana. Quite sweet and rather creamy. A decent alcoholic strength gives this stout plenty of backbone. Nice dry finish with sweet, vanilla overtones. A good foreign stout.

davidtjm (457) - Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 14, 2014
Bottle. Pour is black with a caramel head, aroma is alcohol, toffee, sweetness. Taste is alcohol, sweetness, light toffee, body is thin and carbonation is gentle. Quite enjoyable, although it is rather on the sweet side

berlinmany (217) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 14, 2014
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.

ianwelby (497) - SCOTLAND - OCT 3, 2014
Black beer with a creamy head and yeasty smell of fruit and malt. Flavour is light sour fruit. Not much body to it but it’s not watery either. Not special but drinkable all the same.

MacBoost (1328) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - OCT 1, 2014
284ml bottle from shelf. Pours a dark brown with ruby edges and a small off white head. Aromas of tobacco, dark fruit and cigarette butts. NICE! I love these kind of beers. Taste is some dark fruit, molasses, nicotine. finsihes semi dry with plenty of buttfucking pleasure. Nice, like a thick Jamacian cock in your ass.

This is now back in my local Tesco. Drinkable stout although rather sweet and sticky, doesn’t really feature any of the aspects I associate with this type of beer.
