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 (1439) - 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.

Opaque deep black with brown accents, ample tan head. Lacto, light chocolate, earthy roasted coffee notes. Light bitterness, quite sweet. Long, moderately oily finish. Quite heavy body, somewhat upfront alcohol. Chewy. Good.

maszkaron79 (15) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2015
Jedna z największych niespodzianek piwnych tego roku. Lankijskie, mocne piwo o zadziwiającym, bogatym kawowo-czekolandowym aromacie i smaku. Trunek nie jest ani za słodki, ani zbyt wytrawny. W dodatku cały czas czuć na drugim planie suszone śliwki, które genialnie wkomponują się w całokształt smakowy piwa. Nie dziwi mnie rekomendacja M. Jacksona na kontretykiecie. Zadziwiająco dobra pozycja ze Sri Lanki.

Borresteijn (6166) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2015
33cl Can, brought from Sri Lanka, thanks Thijs! Been on my wish list for a while. Black colour, beige head. Aroma of liquorice, roasted malts, coffee and cream, some chocolate. Flavour is of roasted malts, some coffee and cream, liquorice, light minty (like Zwitserse kruisjes drop), some plain chocolate, bitter finish, hint of metal. Medium bodied at best. Not as great as I hoped, but nice though.
