3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beer had a nice dark tan head that hangs around for a while. Great roasted , chocolate malt and coffee aroma. Very good dark malt flavors with a slighty dry bittersweet finish. Very full body that helps hide the alcohol content.
A very good Imperial type stout. I would’ve never guessed a beer this good would’ve been from Sri Lanka!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bouteille (Sinha stout 08/2008). Couleur noire opaque, mousse forme un lacet qui persiste. Arôme chocolaté, légèrement torréfié, cassonade. Goût complexe torréfié, très sucré, arrière goût torréfié, finale d’alcool très longue, mais pas trop forte. Corps moyen-mince et bien atténué, sèche, effervescence moyenne. Très équilibré, je suis surpris par cette bière.

1.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2006 330 mL bottle: Now here is irony. How can a brewer be so pre-occupied with loading in layers of flavour (and there are lots here) that they forgot people are supposed to DRINK this. But then again, how can so many people be so pre-occupied with analyzing a beer’s flavours that they over-looked the fact that you can’t DRINK this bitter tar. 8%, wow, methinks they lost track of a rather important factor! Forget the flavours of toffee, mocha, etc.: the alcohol content overwhelms the overall taste and gives it a very malty/bitter finish (chocolate finish?! that is the taste of too much alcohol). All of this is not necessary (way better stouts out there to DRINK for sure, that are smoother, creamier and well balanced)! If you prefer to write about beer, then Sinha/Lion might be good for you. I can’t believe how over-rated this beer is and how everyone just falls into line.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle -- Pours an impenetrable black with a medium beige head with some retention and good lacing. Aroma is striking: alcohol, earthy smokey maltiness, over-ripe fruit and dark chocolate. Flavour is more of the same with some chocolatey sweetness and a nice bitter edge at the back. Surprisingly little alcohol warmth given the 8%. Palate is quite creamy. A tremendous beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
(thx 2 Rick!) Hoppy light smell for a stout, and maybe a touch of fruity/flowery hop smell. Thin dark brown pour. Medium to light body. Sweet, light roast. A touch of bitterness, brown sugar, and creamed coffee. Smooth, sweet, powdery roasted finish. Not bad, very easy to drink.

12 ounce bottle. This pours an opaque black color with a small brown head that disappears quickly. At first the smell was almost metallic but as the beer warmed I could sense wonderful hints of chocolate, coffee, and a touch of vanilla. Taste was an excellent mix of coffee, chocolate, and malts. This beer was excellent! It made it even better with the very low price tag! I would definitely get this one again!
