3.5/5  rDev +1.2%

Pours very dark brown, almost black with very little head. Smells sweet and milky, with caramel and cream and just a bit of dark fruit. Fairly simple, but well enough crafted. Tastes sweet, creamy and lightly fruity with a little ashiness on the finish. Smooth and simple, but actually quite delicious. I've always liked the sweet, strong stout tradition in the Carribean. It makes it a hell of a lot easier to get a tasty beer instead of your usual macro lager. This is my favorite Jamaican beer.

A - rich black coloring. One finger caramel head that dissipated quickly. No lacing at all.

S - heavy fruit and peat smells. You can smell the malts but they are hidden by sweetness. Hint of chocolate.

T - very deep fruits. Malts are there but ate hidden by sugars. Sweet but not sugary. Not overly sweet either, expected coming from the cane sugar capital.

M - creamy. Medium bodied for a stout but still very good! Low carbonation which I love.

O - better than average but below great. I would say gaverage!

9.6 oz bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada imperial pint.
7.5% ABV, 13L10 5 on the neck. Ok.

Thanks to Beerwolf77 for the bottle from his stout's of the month deal.

A - Pitch black, the pint looks foreboding and is filled with dense tan foam. Effervescent, it doesn't last all that long but leaves good lace behind.

S - Grainy and raw in aroma, the acridly burnt malts give notes of dry cocoa but little depth beyond that. The crumbly dirt and minerally finish don't do it any favors.

T - Roasted black malt with coffee and cocoa notes overshadows the earthy soil thing going on. The finish is more crisp and clean that one might expect.

M - Creamy and full-bodied, this stout is somewhat dry and mildly acrid bitter but finishes surprisingly clean.

O - Not too bad at all, it's a fairly drinkable higher ABV stout that's incredibly roasted and earthy in nature.
