I've edited this review because I just had another bottle of Dragon Stout. It was even better than I recalled

Since I do not drink coffee and I don't like the stench of coffee, I avoid stouts. I drank this at a beer tasting and am very glad that I did.

A - Dark with a nice tan head that disappeared too quickly.

S - Beautiful aroma, without the chocolate and coffee overtones of most stouts

T - Deep fruit flavor with a smooth alcohol finish and not harsh aftertaste

M - Smooth with a great malt backbone

D - Excellent - I will be getting more!

This is quite simply my favorite beer, but as of recently I can no longer find it in Kentucky. Any further information of where I could purchase this would be appreciated.

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. this pitch black brew has almost zero carbonation and has a tan to brown head. Dragon Stout has an excellent semi sweet coffee flavor and goes down extremely smooth. I would love to have another one!!!

I have been searching for this beer for three years since I first tried it at a friend's party.
My search continues as I long for it's sweet intoxicating aroma and exotic buzz.
This is the beer that took my stout cherry!
If you are lucky enough to land your undeserving paws on some,
sit back and be prepared for a total mouth orgasm.

Nice creamy but, short lasting head. A deep rich chocolate malt taste Crisper aftertaste than most Stouts. Since this is a foreign export Stout, I'd be curious to know what the Jamaicans keep for themselves! ( A Guinness for example tastes much different in Dublin than in New York; I know from experience!)Surprisingly smooth for 15 Proof! (I'm old school)(In fact, I'll explain for those who don't know... Proof is an older measure of ethanol in a beverage. In the U.S. Proof = 2x the ABV of a liquid.)

Picked this up at Turnpike Wine & Spirits in Oak Ridge, TN as part of a pick and choose assortment of porters and stouts. Didn't know anything about it but took notice of it the minute I poured it in the glass. The appearance was excellent and the head was perfect. The taste was most excellent, chocolate and coffee present. The creamy texture was the icing on the cake. This is the best stout I've ever had.
