Found this in a strip-mall kiosk outside of Luquillo, Puerto Rico (Kiosk #25, El Revlou) where they have 150+ craft & imported beers in their cooler. For $6.47, there was no way I could pass it up.
It looked wonderful, even though they had put it in a plastic cup (I was appalled, too).
The smell was wonderful (figs & raisins) and I couldn't wait to tear into it.
The taste & mouthfeel were as good as anything I've ever had; almost perfect. It was so good that I looked down after a few minutes and it was gone. Fortunately, they had a few more for me. That was very considerate of them...
Overall, this might have been the best beer I've ever had. However, when I got home and went out to buy a 4-pack or 2 for the house, I was jolted by the $25 price; it was almost cheaper at the bar by the beach!
This is a wonderful beer everyone should try at least once.

Pours an opaque deep brown with caramel highlights and more beige, dense, creamy head than body. Thick sheets of lacing line the glass walls. The head lingers and is so dense, it climbs above the rim.
Prunes, raisins, figs, bruised apple and burnt sugar form the initial aroma. Gives the impression of a rum-soaked fruitcake. Notes of cola add complexity.
Flavor is intensely sweet and bready, with prunes, pear, banana, and raisins underlying. Toasted, caramelly malt forms the backbone, but the dark fruit character dominates. The finish is slightly dry and boozy.
Body is on the full side, with low carbonation and noted alcohol warmth.
Very complex, estery character, with enough alcohol to warm the belly, but not detract from the experience. Truly a beauty of a beer.
