COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A caribbean stout infused with coffee. The caribbean style is synonymous with strong full bodied stouts. Ours is rich and dark with a toasted brown head, well balanced, roasty and full flavored. Cold steeping with an organic coffee, from Rise Up, imparts a generous but balanced coffee nose and flavor. 40 IBU’s 6.7% ABV

Draft pour - opaque black/brown with medium tan head. Lasting with nice lacing. Big aromas of coffee, roasted malts, nuts, dark fruits and light sweet cocoa. Tastes of figs, coffee, chocolate, and other goodness. Round palate, lots of flavor, very good with a KICK!

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear near black with light passing as a dark ruby hue when backlit. A dark tan head fades to the edge fairly quickly, leaving barely any lacing. Aroma is overall mild, but complex: chocolate malt, cocoa, bittersweet chocolate syrup, and coffee in the form of mocha. Flavor is same, and very rich for a 6.7%. Mild dark cherry tang in the finish, which is very nice. Medium bodied, active carbonation, a great beer.

The overpowering roastiness of this stout just kicks you in the teeth. It's too much. Even for a roasty stout. Sorry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark chocolate, roast, fruity tobacco. Black with a fully lasting tan head. Big roast coffee flavors in the attack, soily earthiness. Full bodied with lingering roasted malty notes.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4909) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2014 Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a black color with a small foamy tan head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was fairly strong brewed coffee and a bit of wood. The flavor was fairly strong brewed coffee, wood and an acidic presence. Medium length finish. Medium body. Ok.

Huhzubendah (2496) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 15, 2014
4-pack from Nick’s of Clinton. the beer is opaque, sporting a near black body and a half inch of beige head. The aroma offers roast, coffee, bready malt. Roast and stout character lead the charge, with coffee playing a supporting role. Rich and dark, with a mild hop presence and perhaps a touch of earthiness. Medium bodied. Simple and straightforward. A solid stout and at a decent price. Recommended.

60minuteman (721) - Frazer, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2014
Dark color, tan lace. Dark coffee, espresso taste. Pretty sticky. Medium-thin body, medium duration. Flavor is not as strong as I would hope it would be.

Evolution brews up a darkest brown, full bodied Foreign Stout with strong coffee flavor blended well with chocolate and roasted malts.

callmemickey (2696) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2014
Dark brown-black body, medium to thin tan head, sparse lacing. Strong roasted coffee notes, general earthiness, and light chocolate. Coffee is definitely the focus here. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, mild bitterness, and decent dryness in the finish.

brystmar (1238) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 7, 2014
Dark body summons tan head which disappears quickly, never to return.

Smells oxidized. Could use more body and less carb overall. Hearty coffee, oxy, prickly carb, nutty malts on the palate. Decent, I suppose, but I can buy Breakfast Stout locally and that sets the bar stupidly high.
