3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Almost pitch black body to a shinning black surface. Chocolate malts to the nose, slightly roasted. Taste of liquorice blended with dark fruity chocolate nicely offset by the bitterness dark berries. Bottle 0,5l, shared with Finn at The King William IV, London 29 Sep 10.
Can, BBD 20-07-2017.. a little bit over it’s date... should be no problem. Can pops open as soon as I break the seal, beer pours itself out of the can.. some splatters of beer land on my cats, who seems to like it. Massive head on the brownish, blackish beer, consisting out of big bubbles and creamy layers. Aroma is massive on some vanilla and roasty characters, also some metallic influences in there. Not sure if that’s from the can or not, probably not. Flavor is good, lots of chocolate and roast, some vegetal notes, cooked vegetables and tobacco influences. Light and easy bodied, long in sweet aftertaste and quite mild in carbonation. Weird, but likeable.. john44 (3456) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2017

Nice stuff from Brodie’s again here, this one opened up more hoppy than I’d been expecting & came through with some excellent tropical fruit flavours that you don’t normally associated with a beer named ’Jamaican Stout’. It was definitely a balanced offering with everything working well together, the sweetness in particular complimented the roasted malt bitterness well with this one; excellent stuff & a beer I wouldn’t mind having again.
Tasted this at the Old Coffee House, Soho, London on the 30th September 2016. Cask, handpump dispense. Dull black in colour with a thin pale buff head. Malty aroma with berry fruit coming through on the nose. Thin oily mouthfeel and good lacing. Dark malt complex gives a maltloaf base with sweet notes of bramble fruit and black coffee evident. There is a slightly dry hop prickle present in the bitter aftertaste which is well balanced. Finish is malty with a slight sweet and sour note of pineapple coupled with dry hints of chicory, molasses and liquorice. A decent session stout. rlgk (18843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 21, 2016

Black beer with a small beige head. Licorice aroma, chocolate, cocoa, fruity, some hops. Fruity licorice flavor, citrus, grapes, some chocolate. Quite ok.

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Exploded out of the bottle and almost all of it ended up on the floor! Afterwards it is hazy black-brown in colour with no head. It has a rich chocolate and rum flavour followed by coffee, red fruit and spices on the smooth chocolate finish. Very good. MrTipple (6952) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2016

Bottle from beerhive. I'm going to have to try this again as a re-rate as this bottle was a total gusher.
