When I told Mark that I was setting up Stout Day, he told me I HAD to get Dragon Stout. Since he grew up in the Barbados, he had access to this, and other fun Caribbean beers. He had such fond memories of it he wanted to relive. So when the wife was out picking up as many as she could find, she grabbed two tiny bottles (300 ml) of Dragon Stout.
Either Mark had never had good beer when he was in Barbados or they changed the way they make this, but it was not the reunion he was hoping for. Neither one of us could finish this garbage. It was WAY too sweet. We were 7 beers in on the day and then we open a beer that tastes like sugar, in beer…..sugar beer. Disgusting!
I called it quits about 5 sips in. Each one more painful than the last. Mark, however, lasted way more than 5 sips (6) before he tossed his.
I think its time to take a stout break with dinner…..
