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.

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!

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.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 6, 2004
Pours a rich milk chocolatey brown with a thick tan head. Mildly sweet chocolate aroma. Body is lightly roasted, sugary and dry with a good chocolate presence. A very nice foreign stout.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 2, 2004
Opaque dark brown colour with a thin tan coloured fizzy head that quickly disappears. Caramel and roasted coffee aroma. Light on flavour with some roasted character, finishing with a smoky bitterness. Light and slightly watery mouthfeel. Flavour and palate are a letdown after the aroma and appearance.

Bit of a mystery when I saw it in the store. Just "Jamaica Stout", no brewery. Hmmm. Opaque dark brown with a tan head. Chocolate nose w/ some alcohol. The taste is malty chocolate w/ some roasty notes - fairly unbitter for a stout. A little bit watery though. Decent.

Black as kunta kinte at night. Sweet malty nose, some sweet dark fruits as oakes said. the flavor was much like licorice. black licorice. the finish was chocolates and licorice. Pretty good, considering the same people make red stripe.

Kimchee and I did this one side-by-side with Dragon Stout and here's what we found: The colour is very dark brown (exactly the same). The aroma is fruity (raisin, prune) with stinging alcohol (basically the same). Flavourwise it is sweet, with lightish flavours of plums and sugary malts. Body is light. It is similar to, but less meaty than Dragon Stout. It has less malt complexity and deep, dark fruit esters. Alcohol seems reduced as well. There are too many similarities for these to be from different breweries, but this seems like a significantly lower-gravity version of the Dragon Stout.
