2.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very good aroma of burned malt and cigar. The taste is a bit like toast in the morning, with coffee, chocolate and caramel. Long aftertaste. A good beer by all standards but not my thing, even though it should be. I’d go for Dragon Stout instead.

Im impressed with this stout, very dark, great foam, great taste of chocolate, the roasty malts, can you smell, after a zip of this great stout, this stout reminds me of ’Samuel smith imperial stout’.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle poured into a snifter glass. Deep, deep dark brown in color an had only a small thin brown head that quickly disappeared. Chocolate, fruit and alcohol aroma. The taste is excellent, with hints of chocolate, light and dark fruit and a very faint roasted malt. It has a very creamy feel on the palate. Nice stuff.

Black with a tan head, this stout has scents of chocolate and spice with a little yeast throuwn in. The flavour is very good with flavours of dark chocolate and roasty malts. The finish has a coffee flavour in it.
Thick and creamy, very good stout.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(05.08.06) 650 mL brown bottle from DiCarlo’s, Mundelein, IL. 8% ABV. Poured opaque black with small off-white head. Soft carbonation. Roasted malt aroma. Medium bodied stout that starts with light malt sweetness and roasted malt, licorice, and chocolate flavors. Finished dry with light bitterness. Mild flavored and rather thin, this ale is more porter-like than stout-like. Very good drinkable beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very enjoyable stout. Nice appearance and a mild but pleasant aroma. Flavour is dry and roasty with lots of chocolate and hints of vanilla. Very nice and certainly the best I have tried from Sri Lanka! ;o) Incidentally, this was my rating no. 750.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This was a really enjoyable stout. Poured a pitch dark black color with red showing during the pour. Head was average/decent for a stout and the lacing standard. Aroma was coffee, chocolate and a touch of perhaps toffee. Mouthfeel was smooth, thick, and somewhat creamy. Flavor was rich with somewhat of a sweet stout taste of coffee/chocolate that hid the alcohol well and transitioned to a touch of a burnt flavor at the end... a perfect finish. Wow, Sri Lanka, woulda never thunk it!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pitch black pour with a rusty tan head. Nice chocolate notes, malt overtones, slight foulness, slight skunked stout aroma. Initial taste is flat and dull but wait a second and all the chocolate and caramel maltiness comes through. Pretty decent. Palate is rather dry and bitter. A funky aroma, but a nice surprise with the taste.
