3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Pours very dark with a nice brown head and good lacing on the glass. Aromas of bitter chocolate, roasty coffee, malt and some caramel. Sweet taste with much the same flavour as the aroma. Medium body but does have a bit of a watery feel to it. My first foreign stout and it was a good one.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly sweet and fruity aroma with some straw like notes as well as some alcohol and of course roasted grains. Large light brown head with good to excellent lacing, but unfortunately the head diminishes rather quickly. Slightly sweet flavour with moderate bitterness which balances out to light bitterness for an average length finish. Full body with a creamy texture.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2005 This is a dayum good beer. Found it at the Foodery 324 S 10th St
Philadelphia. It is exceptional and unsuspecting. The bottle modestly designed in contrast to the taste. It tastes well but does not smell all that much like a stout. It has a very acidic aroma yet is tender on the pallet. The tannins are subtle yet the rasin sweetness lingers well past the lips. Unique. Very sweet.

I drank a bottle at the Flying Saucer, it was surprisingly good! Good thick stout with a bold taste.

330 ml bottle, at home @10°C
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!

3.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma forced the score to be so low. It smelled like a stale bottle left open overnight. The first gulp was bitter like a coffee flavour, then went down a fruity/chocolatey taste after that. Good beer, especially the last drink, but the aroma threw me off. Maybe my sense of smell was off at the time.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Roasted malty coffee aroma. Tastes like mocha java chips. Slightly bitter finish. Silky smooth and not too heavy. Difficult to have only one at a time. This must be the best beer in Sri Lanka.
