Black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and alcohol. Flavor is more of the same. Slightly bitter finish. Thinnish body for a stout. A nice beer and an excellent value, but somewhat overrated.

Slightly sweet and fruity aroma with some straw like notes as well as some alcohol and of course roasted grains. Large light brown head with good to excellent lacing, but unfortunately the head diminishes rather quickly. Slightly sweet flavour with moderate bitterness which balances out to light bitterness for an average length finish. Full body with a creamy texture.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2007 Bottle at the GBBF 05’, what a great stout!, thick, creamy, velvety smooth, mild soft roasted bitterness,chocolate milk flavours, caramel sweetness, pretty easy to drink, addictive stuff, who could have guessed that such a great stout comes from sri lanka, sri lanka rules!

thick black body and dark tan thick foamy head that goes kinda quickly. the aroma is deep roasted malt and "good & plenty" licorice candy-like. the flavor is roasted/burnt malty and a little dry but still sweet like licorice. maybe some faint prune flavor, and some alcohol heat in the finish. went well with spicy Ethiopian food. very funny to see a picture of MJ on the back of the label.

Black with a large long lasting tan head. Smooth silky full body, almost a little oily. Berries in the nose, along with some roast and aniseed. Sweetish liquorice, molasses and roast in the flav. A touch warming but really top stuff.

Pleasant rich sweet woody aroma, with touch of dried fruit sweetness added to it. Subtle quality in two words. This dark ale posses the right medium smooth body for its silky flavour. Light sweet malts, oak acidic woody character wrapped by warming well refined alcohol .medium bitter finish just adds the final matching puzzle .Brewmasters took its time brewing this ale. Very good.

Dark black, tan head, tan lacing. The nose is rich, nutty roast, peanuts, soy sauce and alcohol. Light roast and some coffee/chocolate notes and an overall good tastiness to it.

THANK YOU Tipsy. Black with a fair brown head. Not overly thick looking. Elegant molasses and rum aroma. Liquid envelops the tongue. Long lasting sweetness. Flavour is a masterful and delicate balance of alcohol and sweetness. A hint of chocolate and cherry in the finish.

lovely roasted coffee, alcohol, vinous notes. Pours pitch black, foamy tan head. Sweetish, roasted malt bitterness, some hoppiness. Fairly dry finish. Satisfying body. No harsh alcohol finish. Nice.
