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!

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.

vyvvy (5884) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 30, 2006
Pours very dark brown with a brown head that leaves fairly quickly. Aroma has rich dark chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla and cream. Medium / thin mouthfeel with medium light carbonation. Starts out creamy and roasty with flavors detected on the aroma. Finish is prickly on the tongue with a citrus hoppiness. There is also some spiciness on the finish. The finish was nothing I would expect from a stout, but a very good beer.

Pours black with a quickly diminishing light brown head. Lovely smooth roasted flavours, licorice, chocolate etc. Nothing to really grab you by the bollards, but this is a very fine stout. Lengthy bitter finish.

Skinnyviking (8858) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2006
Bottle. Brown lasting head. Very dark, against my lamp red body. Aroma. Weak choccolate and something I cannot really spot, something lemonlike. Pleasant choccolate / coffee flavor with low bitterness.

Flavours of coffee, toffee and dark chocolate. Nice dark colour and it went down very smooth. A great stout!

11.5oz bottle, no date. Pours a deep brown with a medium, quickly fading light brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate, molasses, coffeee, dark fruits, and alcohol. I think I’m picking up some oats as well. Taste is pretty much the same with the addition of some smokiness, and the alcohol is fairly well hidden. Full bodied, though not syrupy, and light carbonation. Excellent.

Quevillon (2923) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2006
Belle couleur nour avec un gros collet beige. Arome de malte roti avec un soupson de cacao. Goût de café moyen, pas trop fort. Assé bien.

Big choclatey head, very dark, great aroma. Flavor is a bit burnt, very strongly like coffee. Tastes nice, not overpowering. Bottle.
