3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark opaque black with a rich head of dark beige bubbles that resolves into a fine head of foam. Nose is rich roasted malt. Reminiscent of black coffee. Taste is rich and good roasted bitters but is thin and a little sliky like a good roasted black coffee without cream. Finishes with a good amount of back of the throat bitters.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep red in colour with a somewhat frothy tan-coloured head. Aroma reminds me very much of Molasses (very sweet) with notes of alcohol. Flavours are somewhat fruity. Medium bodied with a lingering alcohol finish.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark brown to black, small lasting light brown head. Really nice medium body, smooth texture. With a well-balanced flavor that at times has a cookie sweetness and at times a sort of plum or pit-fruit sweetness. My first Sri Lankan beer! Thanks again for the trade, Shrubber!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black colored, little lasting brown head. Sweet, roasted, vinous aroma with mild alcohol, caramel and coffee, rich aroma indeed. Medium bodied. Roastiness, coffee, caramel in flavor, aftertaste lasts with mild alcohol and roastiness, surprisingly thin bodied. Still excellent brew!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: light liquorice, some metal, plum, malt and a hint of spiritousness. Appearance: poures black with red highlights and has a great tan head that leaves good sheet lacing. Flavour: Bitter and carbon are the intial flavours giving way to a sharp malty and fruity sweetness. Palate: good mouthfeel with some oilyness, fair amount of carbonation with a lingering bitterness.

This beer is called Sinha Stout here in Ontario. Nice alternative to the usual UK suspects, but won’t be replacing them for me. Alcohol is too high for regular enjoyment, too.

Bottled. Opaque black. Sweet, malty and roasted aroma with rye and apple. Flavor is full and sweet with coffee as well as chocolade. Salty licorice in the finish. Tasty, calls for more bitterness though.
