Bottle. Pours a dark black color with a huge head that fades over time and lasts with a nice light coffee color. Taste is chocolate, coffee notes. Crisp and slight hoppy like a porter but definitely a stout at the finish. Pretty goo surprisingly but I dont get the 99 rating as well

CanCrusher (670) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle 0,33L. Black colour with creamy, light brown, long lasting head with excellent lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, strong coffee and caramel. Taste starts light sweet with cocoa and coffee, than turns to moderate bitter finish with long lasting aftertaste. Full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation, alcohol is very well hidden. Excellent stout, nice surprise. Didn’t expect that good beer.

Garrold (1710) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle, shared with Button, under a tree at Ripon races, 18th May. Nearly black. Lots of carbonation gives a big, bubbly, tan head. Smoky. Sweet, black coffee. Roast malt. Taste and palate are chewy and sweet, with the roast malt dryness and bitterness coming at the end. Overly carbonated, though.

guzgorog (344) - FRANCE - MAY 19, 2014
Bière noire, mousse chocolat au lait haute, crémeuse et persistente, laissant une belle dentelle sur le verre. Nez de malt grillé, chocolat et café. Amertume modérée, texture crémeuse très agréable, bouche sur le chocolat et le café, retour amère et capuccino, bonne longueur en bouche. Très bonne surprise, je ne m’attendais à ce qu’une bière sri lankaise puisse être aussi bonne, comme quoi les préjugés ....

This used to be one of my favorite stouts and one that got me into stouts in the first place. Back then I would probably give it perfect marks but years later after tasting becoming a beer snob spending ungodly amounts of money on overpriced rare beer this just doesn’t stand up anymore. I’m assuming the high rating is from high availability and people tasting a decent stout for the first time? If that is the case good for you and the good news is there are even better ones out there! Go find them!

McWorta (660) - LUXEMBOURG - MAY 11, 2014
Pitch black with a chocolate coloured medium head. Roasted malts, light coffee, pleasantly burnt caramel notes with some bitter chocolate notes on the nose. Very lightly fizzy with a light slick texture. Full bodied with balanced roasted bitter notes offering a typical light sweetness. The finish leaves roast notes on the palate. Nice!
