Royal Extra Stout
From the Carib Brewery Limited in Champ Fleurs, Trinidad, West Indes, comes Royal Extra Stout. This strong stout is sold in 330mL bottles and contains a respectable 6.6% alcohol. The label features a golden lion and states "Great Texture. Smooth. Balanced for Performance."--which makes it sound somewhere between a beer and a motor oil.
Royal Extra Stout is a black brew with ruby highlights. It's topped with a thick fog of head and features a sweet and mellow mocha aroma. This brew has a velvety mouthfeel. It has a sweet, chocolatey flavour. There's also something reminiscent of a rootbeer float in this one. The alcohol content is very well masked.
I typically like my stouts to be quite a bit more bitter, but this stuff is alright. It's sweet enough that I'm definitely not inclined to drink more than one or two at a time, but it tastes pretty fine.
Rating; 7.5 out of 10.
