rickgordon (3858) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2005
Bottled, sampled at Delirium Caf, Gteborg. Dark brown. Light brown head. Vineous aroma, residual sugars. Dried fruits(plum) lurks behind. Flavour brings smallish notes of menthol and dried fruits and is a bit sugary. Medium-full bodied. Chocolate becomes evident in finish.

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 7, 2005
Sampled from bottle from a highway-side beer joint outside Negril, JA. I tried this stout only once while in JA because of the availability of Guinness Foreign Extra Stout. Dragon Stout has a milkly-sweetness to it with coffee and chocolate also present. Very alcoholic and a bit metallic. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. No real reason to drink this when it is sitting beside a Guinness Foreign.

blankboy (7400) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2005
Bottle. Pours black with a spare tan head. The nutty aroma is very mild and quite sweet. Also smell chocolate, roasted malt and vanilla. Flavour follows the aroma and is also mild. I couldnt taste the 7.5% at all. Enjoyable Stout -- I like it!

Sregnar35 (1030) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - AUG 15, 2005
A bit thin on the palate, and a little to sharply carbonated. It also had a somewhat overly sweet unpleast flavor, but it was different and thats always cool.

hotstuff (4921) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 13, 2005
Bottle at Stout NYC. Poured a small tan head that mostly diminished, fine-smal sized bubbles, fair lacing, no visible carbonation, opaque, and a dark brown hue. Malty and alcohol aroma. Flavor was sweet, malty and the vinuousness was not overdone. Smooth mouthfeel. Medium body.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2005
Clearish edges, but almost black with reddish reflects. Head is off-white, moderately lasting. Sweet and lactic in the nose, roastiness is rather heavy. Interesting fruitiness array, quite heavily roasty. A sweet chocolate kiss as it enters the mouth, it quickly evolves in a lactic/fruity/vinous manner, but the roasty and anise ultimately win the palate dominance. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated. Not bad, but I dont find the elements to be working particularly together here.

collieman (191) - montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2005
I love this shiz. Pours realy realy almost black, with a slight amber hue pale burlap head, thin whispy, disapates into a little swirl that laces all the way down. Pours medium low carbonation, but it seems to loose its gaz to the air within 2 pulls. Aroma is chocolate malt, roast barley, caromalized fenel, slight bitter hop, and just a splash of vinila. Taste is very simple yet multi layered. First taste is very sweet chocolate malt, folowed by golden shugar cane syrop, then coffie, robust roasted nuts, dark chocolate, medium hops, sweet cola nut, light hint of floral hop dancing with kiwi skins and dried brown grass. Aftertaste is sweet, silky, folowed by a kinda skanky old hop hint. I love this stout, been drinkin it for years, and it just keeps getting better. Try a dragon punch! In a blender add 1 bottle, 1 egg yolk, and 5 tbsp sweetened condenced milk. Blend on high till smoth, about 40 seconds. Drink over ice. A jamacan clasic, very nice, a little diffrent. Made better with carabian style stout, not draught, but try changing the stout around, ie. guinness exta stout, St. Ambois Oatmeal Stout, Boreal Noir, ect. Cheers

HogTownHarry (6380) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Bottle (300ml). Poured an almost opaque ruby-black with small light brown head, which quickly diminished to a swirl. Aroma is very rich, dark juicy licorice, toffee, chocolate, deeply roasted malt, some hop, a huge noseful of vanilla; very sweet. Taste as above, even sweeter - tastes like all the "dark" candies in the sweetshop at once, with a bitter counterpoint to take the edge off somewhat and stewed prunes and other fruits as it warms. Oily mouthfeel, shortish linger and sweet aftertaste. Not my favorite, but Interesting. I can see the cola kwik-lime mentions in the previous review.
