Boutip (5898) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 2, 2005
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color ale with a nice medium dark foamy head with quite good retention. Aroma of deep chocolate and roasted malt is clearly detectable and quite enjoyable. Taste is also distinguishable by the high-level of chocolate malt with a nice dose of sweetness. Body is above average and alcohol is well hidden. Great foreign stout and even more surprising coming out of Sri Lanka.

Bottle. Pours a dark ruby-black with a nice tan head. The aroma is roasty chocolate, smooth cream, and some hops in the background. This has a nice, well-rounded stout flavor: roasted malt with chocolate notes, subtle but assertive hops, and smooth body. Quite well balanced, too. It’s amazing that something like this would come from Sri Lanka. Kudos to them.

MrBrewski (42) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - NOV 28, 2005
625 ML bottle. Poured almost black with a large creamy light brown head that quickly reduced in size and had excellent lacing. Picked up molasses, dark chocolate, and toasted grains in its aroma. This beer is smooth, initial flavor is slightly sweet, toasted, coffee, dark chocolate, some raisin even a touch of wine. Did I mention smooth. Body was full with a creamy almost syrupy texture and soft carbonation. The finish was long and wonderful, as it warmed the alcohol became a bit more evident. if it has a drawback it is its sweetness, if you drink more than 16 oz, or two glasses at a time it can leave that sryupy taste in your mouth. Excellent!

Packed with crystal/chocolate malt flavour. Coffee, chocolate. raisen, are just some of the many flavours that come through and give a long finnish. They serve it in my local Sri Lankan curry house, its fantastic with their spicy food. At 8% its a bit of a killer because all you want to do is drink it!

Pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma is a sweet malt, grape, and coffee. The chocolate comes up front in the flavor also traces of malts, mocha, coffee, and raisen. Great beer, with a creamy palate.

Pours a black color with a small beige head. Aroma is very malty with hints of coffee beans, yeast, tootsie rolls and caramel. Tastes more like a porter than a stout. Flavor is rich in malts with hints of tootsie rolls,fresh coffee and chocolate chips. Very good overall.
