Poured a deep black hue with a one finger foamy tan head. There was good retention and sticky lacing.

The smell was strong with toasted malt and coffee aromas. Sweet caramel and alcohol elements were detected as well.

The taste was a balanced bitter coffee and sweet caramel flavor. Mild bitter cherry and hop flavors detected. Mild alcohol flavor.

The mouthfeel was full and a bit slick. Mild alcohol burn.

Overall a good example of a rarely reproduced style. Would make a good session.

Off the tap in Bethel this stout was a dark, cola-looking liquid with a mahogany meniscus. The head was tan and thin, leaving only scattered lacing. The aroma was subtle and sweet, chocolate and caramel malt. The flavors were similar and very sweet for a stout in the Jamaican style. It started with caramel and chocolate in a blend like a tootsie roll but there were no darker notes to it and it only got lightly bitter in a coffee way towards the finish. As it warmed up the sweetness became cloying and it really messed up the experience for me. The mouthfeel was smooth and silky but also oily and tongue coating. The body was medium and the carbonation low. A generally weird offering for a stout, even a foreign/export one.
