While Dragon Stout from Jamaica tastes like a bitter-sweet symphony in your mouth, The Lion Stout from Trinidad just tastes way too sweet to be considered a beer of any type. When I poured this so-called stout into a mug the first thing I noticed was its extremely dark brown, almost black color. Logically, I thought I was going to taste a stout loaded with hops, but nothing prepared me for its incredibly sweet taste. Sorry guys, try again, this swill tastes like Pepsi with 6.6% alc./vol.
