Deep, dark brownish, almost black in color. The beer has a thick, blanket-like head. Its aroma is average... A hint of malt, some roasted grains, and a touch of alcohol. The taste is very sweet...think continental European stout. Sweet, with a little spice..cloying at times, with a fleshy fruitiness. Dark. The finish is moderately balanced with some bitterness, which just prevents cloying. Still, the beer is creamy and full, and satisfying.

300ml bottle. According to the label, this is brewed by 'Red Stripe', Kingston, Jamaica, as if a beer can brew another beer. Sheesh.

This beer pours a very, very dark cola brown hue (black, I suppose, once you step back), with pervasive reddish highlights, and three fingers of puffy, foamy, and effervescent beige head, which leaves some attractive graphic novel webbed lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.

It smells of dry, dusty, bittersweet chocolate, roasted caramel malt, a banana, prune, and mushed apple fruitiness, mild milky coffee notes, a bit of herbal, earthy hops, and a hovering alcohol warmth. The taste is lightly toasted bready caramel malt, molasses, raw brown sugar, cocoa, mild, stewing Continental coffee, earthy anise, cola syrup, muddled herbal hops, and a agreeably weak alcohol astringency.

The bubbles are quite understated, the body a dense medium weight, genuinely smooth, and even a tad creamy, as that herbal tincture essence gets no play here. It finishes on the sweet side, sure, the caramel, chocolate, and fruit all settling in nicely together, yet a certain plain dryness balances things out.

A pleasant, well-flavoured export stout, the malt running rampant here, to a certain degree. Traditional, warming, and pretty drinkable. I'd sure like to get a bottle of island Guinness FES to compare side by side with this.

Desnoes & Geddes 'Dragon Stout' @ 7.5% , served from a6pack of the smallest 300 ml bottles I've ever seen , purchased for $13

A-pour is a dark cola brown from the bottle to near black in the glass with a small tan head which is quickly dissapating leaving a minimal lace along the pint

S-some roasted malts , hints of boozey sweetness

T-odd has the taste of a 'ris' and 'milk/sweet stout' combined

MF-medium/big fizzey carbonation , full bodied , definately feel the abv's after a couple of beers

Ov-I like it , good beer from Jamaica
