4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
WOW... Good stuff! Compared to most stouts I have tried, it was just a little sweeter and just a little less bitter. And really no alcohol burn which was very surprising at 7.6%! Two of these put me in a very mellow mood... I might be hooked!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark black when poured. Aroma is roasted malt and toffee. The taste is actually really solid, little watery with the toffee and roasted malt flavor. This is a very inconspicuous looking brew and didnít expect much, but this is surprisingly good. Definitely recommend, and wow it hides the abv well! 7.6% alcohol.

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.

Pours very dark brown with a thin light brown head. The nose is licorice, chocolate, dark malt, then some sour and vinegar notes. Taste is dark roasted malts, bitter chocolate, licorice, slightly sour with some booze on the finish. Very unique beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Serving: from bottle (bottle looks identical to photo but label says Big City Brewing; not Razz)--purchased at The Beer Junction.
Aroma: moderate apple, light raisin, whiskey and chocolate.
Appearance: average-sized, rocky, light-brown initial head with good lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Dark-brown body.
Taste: moderately sour apple and raspberry initial flavor and moderately sour raisin and roasty finish with long duration.
Palate: medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation.
Overall: I havenít had a stout that smelled or tasted anything like this before. It wasnít bad, just a bit strange.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Malty aroma with a little bit of chocolate, with a lovely black color. Sweet flavor with a malty finish. Hints of coffee and anise. Definitely a sipping beer, though a little too sweet and malty for my tastes.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Completely black underneath a giant, frothy, khaki head. Smells pretty good, too, with lots of toffee and some bit alcohol notes. Mouthfeel is surprising light and slick, but there are a lot of flavors here to like. Toffee, rum, brown sugar, big alcohol bite, and at 7.6% ABV, thatís not surprising. The hops are kind of funky, and not necessarily in a good way.
I didnít have big expectations, but this is unique and pretty tasty. Worth giving a toss

4.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
While not the best stout, this certainly ranks up there with the better ones. I smelled a hint of cocoa powder, and a dark chocolate bar. Personally, I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to enter the world of stouts.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.
