jercraigs (9498) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2005
Bottle labeled as Sinha Stout. Black bodied. Moderate chocolate brown head foreshadows the aroma of mild roast and chocolate. A thin layer of acidity lurks beneath. Flavour is surprisingly not sweet, with both a hoppy bitterness and a mild roasty acidity swirling beneath the dark roast malt character. Medium palate is smooth yet oddly watery all at once. Nice beer that failed to impress on this palate.

Bottled. Black opaque colour, big brown foamy head, lacing. Roasted malt and coffee along with hints of raisins in aroma. Roasted malt, coffee and a bit soapish hints in flavour. Sticky palate and sweetish aftertaste.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2005 Pours a thick dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma to me smelled like a mix of roasted chocolate and beef jerkey which is very interesting. Flavor is very similar to the aroma, starting with sweet dry roasted malts then finishing with that same smokey beef jerkey flavor (though not bad like u might imagine). Overall, I found it a pretty light satisfying stout.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Opaque with a creamy head. Fruity aroma, licorice notes, roasted malt. Medium slick body, slightly syrupy yet finishing a bit dry. Sweet flavor, light sourness mostly malt and real smooth.

DuffMan (9018) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 19, 2005
Black with a creamy beige head. Heavy smoky roasted aroma, very nice. Palate delivers what the nose promises. A really nice surprise, given this is Sri Lanken in origin (much better than Sandoo of the same origin).

12 oz Bottle: Pours a deep dark brown, nearly opaque but some faint light does manage its way through, with what started as a nice big hilly head, but diminished quickly. Aromas of coffee and chocolate, roast as well. Flavor was of milk chocolate and hints of smoke not present in the aroma. Mouthfeel was lighter than I expected.

lamas (1536) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 7, 2005
625mL bottle. An opaque black pour with a HUGE creamy dark-tan head that leaves thick chunky lace. Aroma is full of chocolate and cocoa with some roasty malts, vanilla beans, caramel and hints of alcohol as it warms. Very thick and chewy and velvety smooth. Creamy milk chocolate starts off and is followed by some bitter chocolate and a sugary sweet, spicy graham crackeriness. A little smoke and woodiness are present too. Deceptively complex. Subtle bitter finish that’s a little dry. Alcohol is very well-hidden. Great stuff.
