mutz (563) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 11, 2014
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 zoín zware stout verwacht je niet in AziŽ.

330 ml bottle, at home @10įC Pitch black colour. Large and thick brown head. Excellent aroma of various types of wood, chocolate and tobacco. Full and rich flavour with roastiness , hops and sweetness are perfectly and smoothly balanced. Really, really excellent beer. Very recommendable!

Fresh bottle. Pours jet black with fading tan head. Aroma is plum, molasses, faint coffee. Taste is so deep - dark fruits, bread, toffee, molasses. You get some raisin and fig here too. Nice creamy mouth feel. One of the more complex Iíve had in a while. Unexpected and delicious.

Derek881 (1004) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Poured from a regular bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a thick black pour and color with a very large creamy dark tan head with excellent retention, along with good lacing and cling. The aroma had notes of caramel and chocolate malt, with touches of molasses, yeast, and some earthy and grainy hops, but was a bit muted and watery overall. It had a rich chocolate and caramel taste with good sweetness yielding to a very strong grainy and earthy bitterness. The beer was wet, creamy, and watery, with good carbonation and a fairly thick mouthfeel. A bit rough around the edges, but surprisingly good, well done Sri Lanka.
