Jamaica Stout 3.9
12 ounce bottle into snifter, no bottle dating. Pours pitch black color with a small dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, brown sugar, toast, dark bread, raisin, plum, light tobacco, light char, and roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and light-moderate dark fruit notes; with good strength. Taste of big milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, brown sugar, toast, dark bread, raisin, plum, light char, and roasted earthiness. Fair amount of roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, brown sugar, toast, dark bread, raisin, plum, light char, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and complexity of dark/roasted malt and light-moderate dark fruit flavors; with a good roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Foreign stout style. All around good balance, robustness, and complexity of dark/roasted malt and light-moderate dark fruit flavors; and very smooth to sip on even with the low carbonation. A very enjoyable offering.

Jamaica Stout 3.2
12 oz bottle, purchased recently but some months past the BB date stamped on the neck. Beer shows very subtle effects pf being past prime (mainly aroma); appropriate compensation given in my ratings. The aroma features mild dark roasted grains and toffee. The flavor follows, being strong on refinement and balance, if a tad sweet, and mild in strength.

Bottle from world beers. Pours inky black with a dark tan head. Smells surprisingly boozy considering itís 7.6%. Also chocolate. Not much alcohol in the taste. Lots of chocolate though and roasted malts. Pretty smooth. I like it.

Jamaica Stout 3.1
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.

Jamaica Stout 3.6
A - Black body with a tan tight bubbled frothy head that stays awhile. S - Chocolate, hazel nut coffee, sour dark fruit, sweet dark malts, T - Dark fruit, tangy and slightly acidic raspberries, dark chocolate, notes of powdered dairy, has a muted smoked citrus tang, iron/minerals, hazel-nut flavored coffee, hops provide a bitter bite on the finish. M - Moderate carbonation, medium bodied. A descent export here. Nothing simple about this beer. Hops come through nice without taking away the other flavors. Exports are a fun style with odd characteristics. This would be really good in the winter. Although itís even good in 99 degree weather. Serving type: bottle 06-25-2011

Bottle. Dark pour. Complex beer. First impression of the flavor was fruit punch. Flavor combines a few different sweet flavors chocolate, lactose, and fruit, with a little bit of coffee flavor as well. Aroma is the same amalgam of flavors as are present in the flavor of the beer.

330ml bottle pours black in color with a small light brown head that leaves a few specks of lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark roasted malts with some chocolate and coffee and mild hops. Taste is chocolate malty sweetness with a roasty malt bitterness and mild hoppy bitterness. Medium to heavy body with mild carbonation. A very nice surprise as it well exceeded my expectations.

Jamaica Stout 3.6
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

Bottle/12oz - Pours a very dark black/brown in color with a very small tan head that faded to almost nothing. Aroma is of coffee, chocolate and dark roasted malts... some bready yeast too. Flavor is slightly bitter with a hint of coffee, some nice chocolate and too darkly roasted malts... burnt tasting. Finish fades from slightly sweet to start then to bitter and astringent at the end. OK, not great...

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.

Jamaica Stout 3.1
Pours basically black with a very small head that fizzes out like soda.

The aroma is molasses, maple syrup, and plenty of espresso.

The flavor is banana up front with lots of roast and dark chocolate. Odd flavors of burnt sugar, burnt toast, burnt coffee, burnt everything are on display. This one starts very sweet but ends dry and bitter. The beer is a little booze and has an oddness I just canít quite put my finger on.

I love trying these Forigen Stouts, theyíre always so funky/dirty/not tailored to the tastes of most beer loving folks. Even if theyíre a little beyond just challenging, theyíre always enjoyable.

Jamaica Stout 3.4
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.

Jamaica Stout 4.1
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!

This is a tasty export stout. Head is very thin and nose has more hop aroma. Chocolate, roast, and some astringency. Body is good with coffe finish.

Jamaica Stout 3.2
A decent foreign stout. I recommend this brew for those maybe trying darker beers for the first time. A little thin, not as sweet for a typical foreign stout. Hard to distinguish the balance, but you can taste the roasted malt, dark chocolate. Slight hoppy finish, not strong. Again, decent, drinkable.

Jamaica Stout 3.4
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.

Jamaica Stout 3.6
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.

Jamaica Stout 2.7
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.

Jamaica Stout 3.9
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.

Jamaica Stout 3.6
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.

Jamaica Stout 2.5
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.

Jamaica Stout 3.4
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.

Jamaica Stout 3.4
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.

Jamaica Stout 3.2
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.
