COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This robust higher gravity sweet stout delivers into the furthest inlets of your taste buds. It’s brewed in the tradition of foreign export stouts that were often shipped to tropical destinations like the Caribbean. Full bodied and hiding its warmth behind a layer of roasted and toasted malt sweetness, this stout is a vacation by the pint full.

Sampled at the brewpub. Pours an oily, opaque black with some creamy beige head. Nose is right on the money, sickly sweet, licorice, malty, burnt sugar, nuts, caramel. Flavor is similar, heavy sugar, heavy licorice, coffe liqueur, brown sugar, soy, syrupy. Full bodied, sweet finish. I thought this was perfect. They aimed for something and nailed it. Not my favorite style, but they accomplished what they set out for.

lamas (1589) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Draft. Came to the table an opaque black with a smallish creamy mocha head that left rings of lacing down the side of the glass. The aroma was dominated by sweet caramel maltiness, toasted grains, roasted coffee, cocoa, and dark chocolate. Went down medium-bodied and quite smooth. The taste was semi-sweet upfront with plenty of caramel maltiness and a little cocoa here and there. The finish was bitter with lots of roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Hints of brown sugar throughout. A little alcohol warmth was evident all the way through. Solid.
