Sycamore Brewing Caribbean Stout

I am not a fan of Sycamore Brewing. I’ve had more than a few of their beers. I find them to be bland. But I think they have a great brewery space and beer garden. I’m trying Caribbean Stout because it looks interesting. So I guess I am giving Sycamore another try. This beer is brewed n Charlotte, North Carolina, and is 7% ABV. This stout pours a black color with a four-finger brown/beige head, which doesn’t move. The aroma is herbal, bitter, roasted, chocolate, and a bit of coffee. The taste is bitter-roasted coffee, malty, and chocolate. It has a smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Then it finishes with a bitter-roasted note. Then you get an aftertaste of nice bitter cocoa. This stout is not terrible. I’d say it’s a B-. It’s better at the first taste than the aftertaste. It has a little too much herbal bitterness of a stout, but I can taste what Sycamore is doing. If you like dark and slightly bitter beer, then you will like this. I wouldn’t rush for it. Please be kind, stay safe, and remember to enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
