BigBeer45 (1422) - Michigan, USA - JUN 25, 2011
The bottle I sampled had different body and neck labels than what was shown on RateBeer, this beer had a brown-black pour and made an initial one to two finger tan and brown colored head, even though this beer is opaque, I see a lot of bubbles streaming up the sides of the glass (appears to be generous carbonation in this beer), left some spots and small fingers of lacing on the sides of the glass, and there was a thin film and ring of dark brown sediment in the bottle, the aromas were roasted malt, chocolate and coffee with some dark fruit esters of prune and raisin, faint licorice-anise in the background, also, there was caramel, malt and dark fruit sweetness, the flavors consisted of roasted malt, dry chocolate and some coffee with malt and brown sugar sweetness, the finish had little bitterness (which may been a roasted malt bitterness), and a touch of alcohol warmth, very faint after the finish, the mouth feel was less than I expected, a beer with a nice aroma and flavor.

Mmm, not bad. Not quite a sweet stout and drinkable. I let it warm a tad before pouring and then it had a nice, thick, creamy, foamy, frothy, tan head that mostly faded fast and a little lace. Color is opaque dark brown except in the bottom of the glass where itís narrow and there I can see itís a clear garnet. Aroma isnít too complex, just basically what Iíd expect to find: roasty, malt, toffee, cocoa, caramel. Flavrorís more or less the same with a little sweetness balance by the roasty burnt and carbonic acids. Body is good, ditto carbonation. Finish is balanced too with a little booze and of medium length. A slow session so I donít get wasted.

Atom (2134) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 1, 2011
12oz bottle pours dark brown/black with thin tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, and molasses. Taste has an astringent bitterness that is really off putting, roasted malts and chocolate taste almost chemical.

Finhead (1601) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2011
A black pour with some faint red highlights and a tan head. The aroma has some vanilla, alcohol, and a bit woody. The full body has a creamy texture with average carbonation. The taste is sweet with a slight dryness in the finish.

Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2011
Been a while since I had a Foreign Stout, this one toed the line stylewise between the alcohol content and fruitiness of a typical foreign stout and the dryness and coffee thinness of a dry stout. But I enjoyed it. Poured black. Aroma was mostly coffee. Flavor was coffee, a bit of chocolate, and a light fruit character. Light bodied, hid the 7.6 very well. Not spectacular, but quite solid and enjoyable.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6615) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2011
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a small foamy brown head that faded fairly quickly. The aroma was faint licorice and molasses. The flavor was roasty and dryish with notes of licorice, wood, bourbon and fruity hops. Medium length finish with roasty malts, wood and licorice lingering. A bit thin in body for a stout. Ok.

MercyDevice (365) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2011
Very dark brown, almost black, with a medium-sized beige head that doesnít last. Creamy, chocolate-y taste, with some strong coffee notes as well. Medium bitterness, not much aroma.

12 oz brown twist off. It pours a dark brown with a nice looking tan head. The head is fluffy and sticks for a bit. The smell is reminiscent of malt liquor, but in a good way. It has that nutty alcoholic scent along with a hint of cocoa. The taste is interesting to say the least. It has a nice bit of that roasted malt flavor that has almost a chocolate/cinnamon/wood character and a blast of sweetness. The malt liquor notes come through a little bit with the alcohol not being completely hidden, but compared to a malt liquor this is one smooth brew. Not bad.

Bottle. Bought this on label aloneí it kinda looks like an arts and crafts project. Pour is pretty close to black with a thin tan head. Aroma is very pleasing with light roasted malt and a dominating chocolate milkshake aroma. Also faint hop, light chemical, and light molasses. Something just slightly off mixed in with lots of good aromas. Flavor also has that light chemical component but then loads of roasted malt, dark chocolate, and a faintly hoppy finish. Not too bad, just a little off.

Dark pour, thick brown head with lacing that remained on the glass. Thin body, coffee flavor with tin can or metal tones that I didnít enjoy. I donít plan to buy Jamaica Stout again.
