Bottle @ OMH-tasting
Sharp chemical aroma. Taste of cheap chocolate and rum. Slightly alcoholic with a sharp aftertaste and no bitterness.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark brown body with a red tint. Thin tan head. Rummy aroma with grainy notes and tartness. Molasses-y flavor with tart grain husks. Baker’s chocolate finish. Nasty stuff.

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.

Pours a very dark brown, small off white head. Aroma of rum, molasses and a little chocolate. Flavor is flat, more molasses, rum acidic, not a big fan. Thanks to 1FastSTI for sharing.

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 didn’t enjoy. I don’t plan to buy Jamaica Stout again.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark brown coloured. Loads of raisins and prunes in the aroma. Even more raisins and prunes in the flavour. Sweet and one-dimensional. Rather light bodied.

5/11/10. 12oz bottle into a pint glass. The pour is black with reds when held to the light with a fizzy tan head that fades to nothing immediately, no lacing. The aroma is harsh alcohol with some dark fruits lingering in there - it smells almost like a cheap port or old chocolate wine. The taste is immediately metallic followed by sour roasted malts, chocolate, and old raisins. Not very good.
