330ml Bottle: Wow, what a stunning find in the singles aisle at the LCBO. The label advertises chocolate, coffee, and toffee, and it actually delivers on all counts. Aroma of deep chocolate and molasses, pours pitch black with an oatmeal-like head that leaves quickly. Hits immediately with chocolate and coffee, lingers to a bitter toffee on the back of the mouth. Hints of licorice afterwards. So much going on, but so well done I’d do it again in a second. Strong on alcohol, but at 8% I expected it to be stronger. Excellent stout.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2006 This is my first beer from Sri lanka. The stout was a perfect one to try. The head poured to a tan and the color was a deep ebony.This is a good one. The aroma was inviting and of nuts and coffee. The stout had a medium body with delicious malts flavors. This was a special experience.

Dorqui (2188) - Brescia, ITALY - MAY 6, 2006
Extremely creamy and adherent head, optimal persistence. Black intense color, impenetrable and decidedly dense. Optimal and typical aspect. Strong and decided scent: burnt malt/wood, liquorice, coffee and alcohol notes. Powerful and solid taste with rumors of torrefy coffee, withered grape and licorice. Alcoholic and decidedly powerful with a much bitter final of good persistence.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 6, 2006
12 oz (maybe 330 ml) bottle, thanks to slob! Pours ebony color with faint brick highlights when held to light and a small beige head that leaves some lace. Aroma of raisins and prunes, roastiness, sour milk, chocolate, a bit of ash and floral notes. Sweet, roasty flavors, coffee and dark fruits, fudge, alcohol, dry and tart notes leading to a lingering bitter finish. Full body, smooth in the mouth with gentle carbonation.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2006 Black opaque with decent dark tan head the has decent lasting. Nose is faint, chocolate with mocha and slight anise. Flavor is nice, roasted mocha coffee, medium bitterness, and a slight metallic taste that is mildly offputting. Palate has a medium-thin body and somewhat watery, yet still smooth texture and a lively bit of carbonation. Finish is short and mildly acidic, like a dark coffee. A decent stout that really never shows it’s 8% potency, but was not exceptionally complex or interesting.

Bottle 0.625 L. Creamy lightbrown fully lasting head. Dark brown colour. Week but nice aroma. Nice coffee/caramel balanced flavor. Long finish. A little watery palate regarding 8.0 abv, but a good stout!
