“The Lion Stout” This beer pours deep black with an inch of foamy light brown head that disappears rather quickly. The aroma is sweet with burnt caramel. If a smell can be creamy, this is it. It smells like a coffee based drink that has a lot of cream, some sugar, and a hint of vanilla and caramel. The taste follows the aroma but is overwhelmed by the absolute cloying sweetness of this stout. I prefer drier stouts to really sweet stouts. This one is in the really, really sweet category. The Carib Brewery is from
Trinidad, West Indies.
