Dragon Stout

This stout is made by Red Stripe out of Jamaica.

Pours dark black with a half inch of head that leaves lacing down the glass.  The aroma is much lighter than I expected, sweet and aromatic.  The flavor is also lighter than I would expect from a stout.  It manages to be light and sweet at the same time, with just a hint of dark roasted malt, coffee and chocolate in the background.  I would never guess from aroma and taste that this was 7.5% alcohol.  I guess this is a good stout for a warm clime like Jamaica.
