2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Way too sweet and oily for my taste. It tastes like the heaviness from imperial stout have married the sweetness of a brown ale. I tried it with food and by itself to notice if there were any difference. It was and the brew works better with food, even better if there are spicy flavors which takes away some of the heavy and bready notes from the beer.

A deep brown with red highlights and light beige foam. A chocolate and figs aroma on a med-full that delivers lots of chocolate and dark fruits. Decent.

Bottle in wine glass. My first ceylon beer is quite a peculiar experience. It is a hoppy stout on both nose and palate, and the choice of hops is interesting as it gives the brew a very vegetative profile. Not overly pleasant in my book but I realize it might be a matter of taste (isn’t it always?).

330 ml bottle at home (4 years after it’s best before date) thanks to Nightfall! Black color with nice beige brown head. Roasted malty aroma, some smoked meat notes, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, dark fruits, dried fruits, wood. Sweet and bitter taste like aroma. Full silky creamy body with soft carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Pours almost jet black with a big frothy tan head, eventually settling down - that it gets any head at all at this ABV is amazing. Aroma of dark dried fruit and malts, roast, plum, chocolate, alcohol. Taste is sweet, malt flavours, liquorice, roastedness and hints of chocolate. At 8.8% the alcohol is noticeable but gives a nice warming feeling. Smooth, soft carbonation, slightly oily-watery texture. A surprisingly good Stout from this region of the world.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
An interesting smell comes out of the bottle - very dark stout like but just not completely hitting the mark. the initial taste however is more recognizable as a stout type beer. A good earthy stout that is highly drinkable and heavy both in alcohol and in the tongue feel. All in all a good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 33cL. Home. Gift from my dad. A pitch black beer with a big beige "oily" creamy head ; good retention and lacing. Grape, caramel, light peat, roast, toast, black chocolate ; nevertheless, the whole thing seems "watery", diluted. Medium sugary sweet, round, light dry lasting bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, fruity caramel light dry warming finish. Overall, a good foreign stout ; slightly frustrated by this "tamed lion" ; too sugary and watery ; beautiful label.
