Nice smooth body, although its kind of light for a stout. Rich espresso/mocha flavors are really highlighted by a bottle-conditioned twang. Is there some vanilla in there? Remarkably drinkable for a stout with such a high alcohol content at 8.0%. Everytime I drink it, I’m impressed all over again. I’m going to say it: this is the best stout I’ve ever had.

Beautiful thick dark and syrupy, with a lively fizz for a stout.
It’s full and long on the tongue. With a medium sweetness and medium bitter taste.
Very tasty and would definitely buy again!

Bottle, picked up in an Indian food shop in Geneva. Pretty black, big beige head. Massive up front roastiness, with a delicious heavy sweet powerful roasty character. Fades to a more traditional coffee bitter drier finish. Full of flavour and very drinkable. Good label too.

Poured into a english pint a dark brown with thick mo a head. Aroma was dark chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, some dark fruits and a little alcohol. Taste was the same with a small smoky note and the alcohol is masked in taste. Finish is a little burnt malt. Very nice, and surprising as I have passed this up many times just based on the cheap generic looking case it comes in.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flaske, 33 cl. Brun-sort med et ok beige skum. En gammel kending. 5 år siden sidst? Sød konserveret mørk frugt, molasse, chokolade. Ristet malt, lakrids. Soyasauce. Flydende dessert. Fedladen tekstur, men lidt vandig i smagen. Ikke helt så god som jeg huskede den...

I swear I have had this before but must have not rated. Deep brown with tan head. Some smokey malt, dark chocolate, slight fruit, tobacco. Watery body, but great beer for Sri Lanka

Nice stout....dark bubbly pour. Nose was chocolate, soy sauce, and some vanilla. Taste was much sweeter than expected...almost milk stout. But good flavor overall. Go Sri Lanka.

Wasn't expecting much here but it really blew me away. Pours a dark dark brown to black with a light brown head. Aromas of alcohol, dark fruits, chocolate, raisins. Taste is sweet with a slight smokey bacon like flavor. Medium thick feel.
