The bottle says it’s 7.6% alcohol by volume, but the beer review sites both say 8%.
Appearance: Brown-black with cola highlights. Tan head that broke down quick.
Smell: Sweet and roasty, kind of a coffee thing going on. A hint of astringnent bitter, maybe leather.
Taste: Big roasted malt component at first, followed by a sweet and thick note kind of like molasses. There’s a dry, almost charcoal character that almost tastes like it’s been on wood.
Mouthfeel: Medium-to-not-quite-full-bodied. Dry finish, and a touch of a pucker from astringency.
Overall: Enjoyable stout, the best Jamaican beer I’ve had. (Which of course is irony.)
