UPDATED: APR 1, 2005 I drank mine straight from the bottle. The owner of a local party store gave me a 5 pack (1 missing) which was found under a shelf in the walk-in cooler, and we estimated it had been "cellared" for at least 2 years. There was a good 1/8" of dust on the bottles. The texture is a perfect blend of oiliness and carbonation. The aroma and flavor was extremely rich and satisfying, nothing overpowering, and surely not lacking. Has an effect of melted butter with pancake syrup and fresh brewed fluffy cappucino, minus some of the sweetness, but with plenty of refreshing qualities and alcohol kick. This beer is awesome!!

Great body; nice, rich, dark tone; hints of coffee and choclate. I wish I could find some locally. Highly addictive afternoon sipper!

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. this pitch black brew has almost zero carbonation and has a tan to brown head. Dragon Stout has an excellent semi sweet coffee flavor and goes down extremely smooth. I would love to have another one!!!

A great sweet/malty stout full of licorice, coffee, chocolate flavors. If you like Mackeson, you'll love this. When in Jamaica, skip the Red Stripe and search this out.

Poured chilled into dimpled tankard. Nice coffee-stain coloured head with a body so dark you can’t see through it in direct light. Heavy malt feel to the beer with a taste that blends sweet and bitter perfectly. Full body with very little carbonation after the first few sips - goes down smooth.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2017 Very unique sweet deep taste that’s not heavy. Strong stout for its taste. Tesco sell it on the imported food isle. Good price amazing stout.

I love this stout. It's mild, with a hint of sweetness. Not as sweet as a Royal Extra Stout. More like a sweet Mackeson XXX.

A great sugared malty stout from the land of the sugar cane. (Okay actually it's the land of ganja, but this isn't a 'rateweed.com') The saddest thing about Dragon Stout is that is has become a rarity in Jamaica. Most bars only sell Guiness and it was hard for me to find this stuff on my last trip there. Regardless, this is a sweet 'chocostout' that lovers of Mackeson's will enjoy. If you don't like dark beer however, this one will not change your opinion at all. (Note I have an 18 inch neck, tho my name isn't Gunter)

Dragon Stout is a black ale with a thick, bubbly, caramel brown head that shows good retention and lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet, with notes of molasses and brown sugar. There seems to be a smokiness to it. It’s pretty full bodied and very smooth. It is thick and chewy with a clean finish. It tastes very sweet and a little grassy. There are notes of rum and toffee. There is a slightly smoky note at the finish. It’s nice, but very sweet. It’s a good thing it’s in such a small bottle.
