My favorite beer.... I just love the thick, tasty brew - 40-weight beer at its best!

It used to be available in California at various locations - spotty, but available. Then Trader Joe's picked it up and it was ubiquitous. Then it just disappeared as the brewery in the midwest went belly up.

For years it was gone, but now is appearing up and down the east coast. Fortunately, I found a place that ships it all for a reasonable cost of about $69 a case total. See www.halftimebeverage.com.

Enjoy!

Glad to see this beer is back on the market again after production ceased for a few years! Got an 11.16 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. This beer is a a dark brown color with a nice thick light to medium brown colored head 1/2 inch thick when poured, settling to a nice surface coating about 5 minutes later along with a nice thick ring lining the inside of the glass. One of the darkest heads I have ever seen on any beer. This beer lets in no light whatsoever. Very nice lace. Sweet malty aromas with coffee, caramel and chocolate notes are present. Has a strong sweet chocolate malt flavor along with some caramel and a bit of coffee as well as a little vanilla. Amazing flavor profile. Rounded out with just the slightest bit of hop bitterness on the back end, but the sweetness dominates for sure. Has a very smooth, creamy, frothy, yet somehow still somewhat crisp, full bodied mouthfeel with a sort of milky texture to it along with moderate carbonation. Very easy to drink the way good beer like this should be. Probabley the best beer of this style I have ever had!

The beer is opaque with a near black body. The head measures two inches thick, fades slowly and leaves ample lacing in its wake. The aroma offers chocolate milk, brown bread, biscuits. Smells great. The taste delivers what the aroma promised. A superb example of the style. No bitterness or lactic presence. So smooth and creamy on the palate. Lingering chocolate breads and doughnuts, though not at all too sweet. I'll be picking this up again.

My first beer from Trinidad and Tobago.

Poured into a Pint Glass.

Appearance-Pretty much black body with a 3 finger mocha head. Slowly dissipates leaving some nice lacing.

Smell-Roasty, Smokey, Sweet malts. Slightly sour

Taste-Not what I was expecting and suprisingly delicious. First sip is creamy chocolate then followed by some sweet sweet malt and finishes with some roast and something fruity. EXTREMELY sweet but when it gets to be a little too much some light hops and fruit balanceds it out.

Mouthfeel-Creamy and Smooth. Medium bodied, nicely carbonated. Really coats the mouth.

Overall-My only big complaint will be that it's pretty filling, and couldn't drink much. I remember trying this UK version years back and don't remember it being this good. Really tasty stout. Would be great with desert, or just plain for desert.

Pours inky black with nice tan head. Nose is slightly chocolatey/coffee-ish but somewhat muted. first quaff sort of fills the mouth. MUCH more body and flavor than the nose belies. Creamy mouthfeel that leaves a mild lingering slickness on the back of the tongue. A mild hint of sweetness that's not overdone. I've had the Left Hand and this is a little less sweet. Nicely balanced and overarchingly quaffable. And my local co-op got a great deal and it's $6.49 a six. Man... I'm gonna help them run out of it!

This is straight from St. Lucia, brewed in Trinidad. The bottled version is brewed in St.Kitts and personally I think this is better.

Pours a dark brown(black) with a one finger thick tan head, lots of lacing!

Smells of sweet chocolate milk, coffee and rich caramel malty-ness!

Tastes malty and rich upfront, like chocolate brownies and finishes milky sweet with a slight hop bitterness to balance it out.

Overall a wonderful milk stout, the best I've ever had. I'm sure this is different than the now retired English version. If you're ever in the Caribbean, seek this one out!
