crossovert (6927) - Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2011
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.

beernbourbon (1284) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 15, 2011
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.

bmanLS (134) - Gibsonia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 13, 2011
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.

nuplastikk (4268) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 9, 2011
12oz bottle. Boom. One sip of this and Iím in the Caribbean. Sweet, rich, over the top. Opaque brown-black, thin beige head. Big brown sugary tones. Pungent dark fruit. Vanilla. Sticky, sugary finish coats the mouth. Iíd say Caribbean Stout is an acquired taste, and that this really does the style justice even though Iím sure itís overall rating wonít reflect that. Certainly mellows a bit as it sits and approaches room temperature. Rather brutal, like a high ABV Dunkel brewed with Candi sugar. A little hot, but overall a cool beer worth a try.

kramer (4856) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear flat black body with a one finger fizzy brown head that left some sparce lacing. The nose is rather sweet with some roastiness, and a hefty dose of burnt caramel. The flavor is a bit weak and thin, thereís a weird acrid burnt maltiness that doesnít sit too well for the style or my personal preference. Thereís also a rubbery note in there that isnít too pleasant. Medium bodied with a slight stickiness that makes the rubber not stick around a bit too long. Soft fizzy carbonation. An unusual take, and not one that is especially good.

VAAC (85) - Middlebury, Indiana, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Dark black color, smells of coffee and dark chocolate. Also tastes like coffee. Very thick. Nothing overly special, gets this score because I just like this style.

ruskiimperial (308) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 14, 2010
Poured a very dark color, with a fingerís worth of very nice tan head. Aroma is heavy on black coffee and black chocolate. The taste is fairly similar to the aroma, though there is a good bit of toffee as well. Body is medium. A good example of the style with quite a bit of character.

EithCubes (4701) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Bottle. Sweet stout smell, strong velvety chocolate and underlying fruit, delicious! Dark ruby brown pour is close enough to black for reggae and supports a sudsy light brown head. Taste has chocolate, yes, but the key player is dominating roast, aptly supported by dry ash. Which lasts. Lightish medium body. Stings a bit, and a drop too much acidity, but the flavor hammers without losing any grace on the swing.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Bottle. Poured dark brown with a thin tan head. Light aroma of roasted malt. The flavor had roasted malts with a chocolate background. Medium body with a roast bittersweet aftertaste.
