bought this on vacation in Bahamas. not cheap, it was 2.25$ per 12oz bottle.

pours jet black with a white, soapy head. typical stout look except the head was whiter than usual.

hard to pick up scents on this one. my cousin had just smoked a cigarette so i had to walk away a second to smell, but there's not a strong scent to this one. smells of roasted malts mostly.

taste is okay. nothing crazy, roasted malts and subtle coffee and chocolate. mouthfeel feels a tad thin for a stout. tastes somewhat similar to a Guiness extra stout.

overall, not a bad beer, but not great either. for being a local Bahamian beer, it's a stand-out (avoid Kalik like the plague!). but i wouldn't go out of my way to acquire it back home.

I drank this straight out of the bottle, purchased and popped open at the Bahamian Brewery outlet in Nassau. The wonderful woman at the store showed me her skill, opening the bottle with a STAPLER, ending up with an unmarred bottle cap. Sweet.
I can only guess at the appearance since there was no pour involved. Looks good through the dark bottle.
The smell is nice, toasted malt with a hint of coffee and chocolate.
The stout tastes great. Smooth, slightly sweet, malt, a hint of chocolate and coffee with a nice bitter finish.
The mouthfeel is excellent. Nice and creamy with a bit of a drying finish. Would love to have one I could pour into a proper glass...sigh.
Overall, an excellent beer. If I could find this nearby, I'd buy it.

Pours black with tan head no proper glass wear to judge lace so eh looks like a stout.

Smell is nice roasted malt good coffee notes hints of chocolate.

Taste is actually surprised quite tasty at least it hit the spot after snorkeling on Deadman's reef in Freeport, Bahamas. Roasted notes descent coffee with a hop kick.

Mouthfeel lighter a good warm weather brew.

Overall I was surprised it was actually pretty good way better then any other local island brews I have had.

I couldn't help but laugh reading the other reviews here. They are SPOT ON.

I was also in Nassau when I tried this beer. As other have stated, 95% of the places you'll go here have nothing going on for beer. When Red Stripe is a slight step above the rest, you know you're in trouble.

So when I finally spotted a stout that looked like one in the bottle, I figured, "Why not?"

Well hey, I gotta say, it was pretty good! It tastes even better because you can drink anywhere you go in Nassau carrying a beer and it doesn't break the law. Want to wear a swimsuit, drink a beer, and walk into a diamond store and look at a 10 karat diamond? Sure! Why not? ^_^

It doesn't bring anything new to the table, but all of the characteristics of a good solid stout are in this bottle. As compared to the other drinks there, this beer is salvation in the dessert on an island in the sea. ^_^
