Svart tät. Fantastisk doft av kaffe och choklad. Imponerad och förväntningarna på smaken stiger. Tyvärr dock något helt annat. Torr, riktigt torr. Svagt rökig i eftersmaken med lite aska. Medium beska. Kul att testa en så pass bra öl från ett land som inte direkt är kända för sin bira.

A good solid stout with a dark color. Nice aroma and well balanced flavor. It’s worth trying.

UPDATED: APR 16, 2014 Considering Sri Lanka is not a country known for beer, amazing! 8.8%alc in a 625ml bottle at Gateway Hotel near CMB airport. A black, almost red body with tan head that whitens with perfect lacing. Mild aroma, but smashed with dark fruit and strong malt. Some slight smoke/rausch taste, followed by heavy complex roasty backbone. Ive noticed a varied quality thru several bottles in an evening session, all are above average that I had.

Pours dark brown to black with almost no head. Nice olive aroma also sweet, chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor is sweet, roasted malt, again some olives which I can feel almost in all the foreign stouts. Excelent

Can at Niche Cafe in Bangkok. Pours black with a tan head that fades quickly. Nose is dark roasted grain and malt with notes of anise. Sweet flavor. Medium body, lively carbonation. Quite good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
