215/615:  Home:  Royal Extra Stout by Carib Brewery of Trinidad:  **1/2;  dry coffee nose;  Carribean stouts can be cloyingly sweet rendering best suited for cooking (they make for a great chili) but this is so dark and and not overly sweet with caramel, chocolate and coffee notes;  I really was not expecting to like this one so much;

Today is International Stout Day.  I still don't know who decides such things.  I also tested Mill Street's Cobblestone Stout, now available in tins.  I don't get the same depth of flavour that the draught version has but it sure is a nice try.
