3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2005 Pours black with a nice creamy brown head that leaves good lacing in my glass, roasty, fruity malty aromas. Taste like plums, chocolate and smoke, medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel, finishes a bit sweet, alcohol comes through as it warms, not as good as I was expecting but still a good stout.

As black as night! Dry mouthfeel with liqourice tang. Good roast notes and not too sweet. Very nice.

Dark beer with a minimal head. The aroma is subtly cocoa filled, and the flavour is similar to a dunkel but far deeper. Very pleasant and totally brilliant.

Aroma has cake dough and pineapple. Sweet, full bodied beer with just a hint of sourness. Strong roasted malt and tropical fruit flavors (pineapple and mango). A tasty tropical treat!

Big giant tan head. Vanilla, light chocolate, light coffee accents. Deep rich dark blackish hue. Very rich and smooth. Great malt accents, medium to full bodied, velvet, creamy and delicious. This is great stuff. Kinda weird flavors in the finish, yet nice bitterness; but this is good stuff. Anything from Sri Lanka is good!!!

Very drinkable and very missleading considering its big 8 per cent strength.Liquorice and fruit dominate but the overall taste is complex.It is hard to decide what is the dominant taste but this is truely a great stout.If you dont normally drink stouts please give this one a try-if you do then search this one out, its a winner.

I enjoyed this Stout every bit as much as Samuel Smith’s Imperial, if not more. An excellent sweet stout which I have no problem drinking more than one of in a sitting
