If I wanted to, I could choke this down and probably end up enjoying it. However, it’s a little too dark for my taste and the flavor is rather overpowering.

Wonderful stout. Flavor profile is intense and complex. A bit too carbonated, but thats my only complaint. Truly classic.

Very good...looks like a typical Guinness without the head. A sweeter taste with some coffee and chocolate flavor. Some alcohol in there as well. I like it, but these high alcohol stouts all taste alike to me!!

12 oz bottle. Had it before, finally got around to rating it. Pours a dark black with a half finger high tan head that slightly dissipates. Smells of chocolate, bits of roasted coffee. Tastes of roasted chocolate, with hints of what I think is espresso (not coffee). Goes down pretty smooth and has a good taste in your mouth afterwards. My favorite inexpensive stout.

Pours deep chestnut brown with thick tan head that dissipates quickly. The nose is subdued at first, but offers typical stout notes of chocolate, coffee and dark cherry. Chilled, the palate at first presents some of the chalkiness common to harsher coffee beers, but this subsides as it aerates and warms. While Lion Stout smooths out, it provides fizz and a dry, slightly bitter finish. A good stout from an unexpected location.

Now this is one dark beer. Completely opaque with a thick creamy head that’s darker than most beers. Chicory, toasted malt, raisin, dark chocolate aromas. Full bodied. Smooth caramel, coffee flavour with an odd grape aftertaste. Very tasty. Cheers!

Bottle. Pours a deep black-brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of alcohol, coffee, and chocolate. The flavor is very smoky, with bourbon distinctly noticeable. A nice blend of malts. Good mouthfeel. An odd but quite good stout.

33 cl bottle. Pours dark brown nearly black with a decent sized khaki colored head. Aroma is chocolate, brown sugar, hint of coffee. Flavor is again chocolate, brown sugar, molasses,and a hint of bitter coffee. Palate is medium bodied, a touch thin, medium to mildly carbonated, and finished somewhat sweet with a hint of tartness.

21.1 oz Bottle -- Pours black with tan head. Buckwheat, maple syrup, coco, and some slight coffee. Nice sweetness that is not overpowering or sticky. Rather light in body for a stout of this abv.
