Thrilled to try this one . Very good ratings, and a stout ? should be nice ! Weird country to have such a good beer though ... Lets try and see what this says ... Pours black, good brown foam . Not much scent . tiny bit of dark, malty, yeasty , almost toffee-characters . Good carbonation . Pretty refreshing ( and its a stout ? ) I recognize some aromahops, though no bitterness ( dont get me wrong, its not a hoppy beer , you just recognize some aroma that reminds to aromahops ) . Some chocolate . Rather sweet , easy drinking . Good one, but not great to me .

Very solid stout. After reading the description and effort it took to get the can to the table, I feel like I should rate it higher, but I'll stick with very solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours with a deep black color and a medium tan colored head with moderate retention. The aroma is very pleasant and inviting. Roasted malts, caramel, chocolate and some coffee. Tastes bittery and roasted, with some coffee and little caramel in the back. Very drinkable, creamy and full of taste.

Grote 625 ml fles van de local wineshop in Galle, Sri Lanka. Bijna zwarte kleur en een mooie dichte kraag. Ruikt naar mokka, koude koffie, pure chocolade. Redelijk wat body maar de smaak is iets minder als het aroma. Gebrande mout, koffie, mokka, maar niet heel nadrukkelijk. Ik moet zeggen dat ik het bier ook niet optimaal krijg kwa temperatuur ( iets te warm, geen koelkast op de kamer dus " gekoeld" in een wasbak met " koud" water. Geen passend glas maar net wat er in de hotelkamer aanwezig is. Maar ik klaag niet, lekker bier en zo’n zware stout verwacht je niet in Azië.
