Black color, brown head. Light chocolate and a little roast in the nose. Sweet malt, licorice and a shot of alcohol in the body. Roasty and nicely balanced. This is a great stout, I expected it to be too sweet, like other lion stouts (Royal Extra), but this was complex and tastey. Good stuff.

Very dark opaque black. No light shines through the beer. Head is a dark grayish tan. Aroma is of roasted malts and a touch of smokiness. Body is light and a bit thin, but full flavored and rich. Roasted malts are well done, with that hint of smoke and a bit of chocolate. Great beer.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2007 i was amazed by this. dark chocolate, vanilla ice-cream on the roof of the mouth. lots of coffee of course. no saltiness whatsoever to spoil it. looked amazing. big brown aero bar head. thick but not syruppy. kept waiting for the glass to get worse but it only got better. re-rate - the familiarity that i now have with lion stout, from buying several six-packs in sydney, has bred a little contempt. i still find it a great beer but am not as excited by it any more, it’s starting to taste like a normal beer

Aurelius (4028) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 14, 2002
A superior stout. Slightly olivine aroma, with good stout character. Flavor was nicely roasty, bitter, balanced and the palate was stellar. Fine, fine stout.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 23, 2002
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.
