Beer Review: Jamaica Stout

Jamaica Stout

This will be my first journey to the Caribbean beer scene, and I must admit a stout is not something I would expect to come out of Jamaica.

It sure looks right. Completely black underneath a giant, frothy, khaki head. Smells pretty good, too, with lots of toffee and some bit alcohol notes. Mouthfeel is surprising light and slick, but there are a lot of flavors here to like. Toffee, rum, brown sugar, big alcohol bite, and at 7.6% ABV, that’s not surprising. The hops are kind of funky, and not necessarily in a good way.

I didn’t have big expectations, but this is unique and pretty tasty. Worth giving a toss
