Flat looking stout with a strong coffee aroma and very dry flavour with little roastiness. Overall a plain stout.

Black body with brown head. Aroma is medium sweet, chococoffee, some raisin. Taste is sweet, coffee, chocolate roasty, some raisin, faint anise. No bitterness, even coffee-based. Medium body with decent richness. All told, a solid stout that holds its own.

I was hoping this was going to be close to my fav.Jamaican brew, Dragonstout, but it wasn’t.Still not bad.A nice meaty dark beer with a frothy tan head.Lots of chocolate and coffee flavors.The finish waskind of clean.

BBB63 (6019) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 22, 2004
Nearly opaque with a small tan head and very good lace. The aroma hints of tart and sweet fruits (apple, current, and berry), roasted malts, caramel, slight mocha, coffee, aromatic hops, and zesty yeast esters. The taste starts bittersweet with good hops background leading into a mocha flavor. Undertones of coffee, plums and earthiness. The finish is almost woody and bitter. The mouthfeel is a bit thin, lively and refreshing. A solid easy going stout, quaffable. Try one. Thanks MattA.

blankulus (1) - Kingston, JAMAICA - MAR 13, 2004 does not count
On popping the cap one is greeted by a very pleasing aroma of roasted malt.Pours with a small off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly. The flavour is very balanced, not overly bitter and harsh like FES and yet not overly sweet. It goes down rather smoothly with a slight alcoholic burn and most importantly it's not overly heavy on the palate and it leaves a rather pleasant after-bitter.

Dark and forboding in the pour, small head that does not last. I noted coffee overtones, not bad but not great

I’ve seen this stout in a few stores around town recently, alas, last night it was a featured beer at a beer and wine tasting, I enjoyed it so much I bought a 6er on the spot.
Pours as black as Jamaica and as rich as those old bastardly Brits that colonized it. Small kaki head, quickly disappears, a big roasty mocha nose, toasty coffee bean aromas and flavor. Notes of fresh cream, cold black Coffee, toffee, vanilla; I recommend drinking this one after it has warmed up around 60-65 degrees.
Overall this is a pretty decent offering and a very modest price of $7 a 6 pack.

Aurelius (4125) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2004
This was pretty good. I was afraid that it'd be like Royal The Lion Stout, which is sugar-malty. Nice Kalhua-type choco-coffee aroma. Good black appearance, nice clean label, goot bottle. Flavor is very coffee and sugar. Acidic, moderately sweet, fairly coffee bitter. Finish is pretty nice, medium body. Pretty decent for the price.

PorterPounder (5480) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2004
Pours with a motor oil like look to it. Thick and black - the head was off white and dissipated quickly. Aroma is of chicory, licorice and alcohol. Flavor has elements of chicory coffee, cane sugar, bitter chocolate and traces of alcohol - but hidden well for 8%. Smooth on the palate at first but turns just a tad chalky near the end after settling and warming. Expected a syrupy sweet concoction when I picked up the bottle - but pleasantly surprised Mon!

presario (4611) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 11, 2004
Had to pick up another 6 to rate since I didn't keep track of my rating and didn't have the info to add the beer. Black with almost no head. What foam there is, is dark brown. Slight film on the bottom of the bottle and deposit on the cap. Very strong lasting aroma of smoke, licorice, coffee and bitter chocolate. Very drinkable, not too sweet stout. 8% but alcohol flavour is not present at all. Could drink a few of these way too quick. A stout that I could see drinking on a very hot day. Nice body.
