Jamaica’s Dragon Stout, is a beer that has been around since 1920. But with Caribbean heritage, it’s not surprising that’s has molasses flavours. After all, molasses has been used to make rum in Jamaica for more than 260 years. Drangon Stout, a Foreign Extra Stout, is “sometimes referred to as Red Stripe’s darker and stronger brother according to the now defunct Dragon Stout Website.
We could immediately discover strong aromas of molasses and chocolate while we poured Dragon Stout into a shaker pint. it appeared dark mahogany during the pour, but once in the glass it was opaque and black as night. and perched atop it sat a loosely beaded, frothy, mocha-coloured head.
when I was young two of my sisters had Iron deficiency problem, I remember my mom would use dragon or Guinness with condensed milk, raw eggs, and vanilla essence, nutmeg. mix all together and gave it to my sisters as a punch. drinking Dragon alone or Guinness has so much iron. just like molasses.
My sixteen year suffer with Iron deficiency and I use similar method as my mom apart from the dairy and the eggs, my method is I use soya Swedish Glaze Ice Cream, cinnamon, vanilla essence and Dragon Stout. pretty good to help with iron deficiency.
