Pours Black with a thich brown head. Malty sweet aroma. F;avour is very fresh and malty with a roasted malt bitterness. Very interesting. It is kind of a refreshing stout. Not what i was expecting but I like it. Slightly spicy nice mouth feel . Good stout. The 8% is well hidden in the palate. It gives it a kind of dry crisp finish, but still verybmalty.

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.

Aurelius (4197) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2004
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.

I’ve seen this stout in a few stores around town recently, alas, last night it was a featured beer at a beer and wine tasting, I enjoyed it so much I bought a 6er on the spot.
Pours as black as Jamaica and as rich as those old bastardly Brits that colonized it. Small kaki head, quickly disappears, a big roasty mocha nose, toasty coffee bean aromas and flavor. Notes of fresh cream, cold black Coffee, toffee, vanilla; I recommend drinking this one after it has warmed up around 60-65 degrees.
Overall this is a pretty decent offering and a very modest price of $7 a 6 pack.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2005 Pours dark in color. Aroma is sweet and roasted. Oily mouthfeel. Has some almost fruity characteristics hiding underneath the roasty, oily flavors going on. Thick and rich strong roasty aftertaste. Alcohol is well hidden. But does hit you quickly.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 10, 2009
Bottle. Pours deep dark brown, but falls short of black, nice thick pale tan head. with surprisingly nice lacing. Nose is quite soft, dried dark fruits, mild roast, some coffee and chocolate. Palate, though light, isnít thin, providing a nice tart mouthfeel, with figs, prunes, and "Fruit Rollups", plus the expected roasted malt flavor. A very contradictory beer, interesting indeed.

bhensonb (11131) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 22, 2009
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a decent tan head. Aroma of dark lightly burnt malt with something lightly herbal. Medium body with rather creamy carbonation. Flavor is dark, almost with a touch of tar. A good straight forward stout. Not a trace of heat. Good drink.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 25, 2010
Has a belgiany stout nose...some brine, some salted nuts, belgian stout yeast, salt, peanuts..hmmm...dark brown beer, tan head. Flavors are fairly nutty, brittle like...a touch salty..interesting for sure but needs a little more sweetness to bring out those interesting attributes. Somewhat acidic palate kind of engulfs the carbonation but it works.

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.
