Carib Brewery Royal Extra Stout

“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.
