Pours dark brown with a large and leggy tan head. Aroma is roasted coffee malts and molasses. Taste follows suit with notes of chocolate, some hops and a touch of booze. This one was a surprise - a very rich and satisfying English stout.

Can bought in Kandy, Sri Lanka. Very dark brown with a big light brown head. Aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate as well as molasses. Balanced taste but lacks complexity. A bit thin mouthfeel ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nuplastikk (5371) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 25, 2015
16oz can. Big, sugary, sweet molasses body. Captures the style well enough, but sort of on the cheaper end of the spectrum with the ingredients. Foamy beige head on top of an opaque brown-black body. Definitely the best beer made in that area of the world that I’ve had. Classic world beer.

TorbenJensen (1408) - Valby, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2015
Color is black, it smells wonderful of smoke, mocha and a little chocolate. The taste is gentle and carefully spread it a smoky flavor of coffee, chocolate and light English licorice in the mouth.
