Pours black-brown, with brown head. Aromas of burnt malts, nuts, mild dark fruit. Flavors of burnt malt, nuts, raisin, chocolate, toffee, coffee and alcohol, nice bitter finish. Great taste that takes you for a ride, pretty sweet but nice finish. Very Tastey!!

rebelbrewer (125) - Lithonia, Georgia, USA - JUN 18, 2006
330ml bottle poured into a snifter glass. Deep, deep dark brown in color an had only a small thin brown head that quickly disappeared. Chocolate, fruit and alcohol aroma. The taste is excellent, with hints of chocolate, light and dark fruit and a very faint roasted malt. It has a very creamy feel on the palate. Nice stuff.

Bottle found at Auchan Kirchberg. Deep black colour, lasting head. First taste is fruit like sweetnees, followed by coffee notes and a typical stout finish lasting nicely. A good surprise.

Baumgartner (122) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Bottle poured to glass. Pours black with a rich 3 fingered tan head. Smells of burnt malt grains and mild coffee notes. Tastes strongly like burnt molasses and expresso mixed together. Creamy in the mouth feel even though it appears watery. Slight lacing on the glass. Would have given a 5 for appearance had the lacing been a little better.

WOAH!! This stuff is UNDER-RATED. This stout is VERY good. I’m really suprised that a stout from Sri Lanka is freaking great. You all need to get this stuff. 2.99$ 22oz. at Binny’s.

toffsbury (114) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2011
Roasty, full bodied... lovely nearly-opaque blackness with a touch of red at the edges. Bitterness and coffee notes in the taste. From a bottle in Ontario, "best before December 2011". According to the ingredients list, there’s no water. No wonder it’s so intense.

HopsformyHips (113) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - MAR 29, 2005
This was a very very nice stout specimine. Big beautiful litght brown head on a nice dark brown pour. Bitter sweet chocolate and a subtle roasted coffee flavor. Nothing outstanding, but nicely balanced with some sweet darker fruits. Just a very stable stout.
