Smells strongly of coffee but there is a distinctive alcohol scent as well. The flavor follows up with loads of burnt coffee and leaves an ashy taste in the mouth after.

From bottle... poured semi-transparent, dark brown with medium head. Very nice malty aroma with hints of chocolate and molasses. Lighter taste with some chocolate. The overall experience was very positive... nice, enjoyable, relaxing beer. Must get again.

This is good stuff, period. I will have a hard time buying any other dark beer after this. This will become the measuring stick for all things dark!

Sinha stout, aka Lion 330ml bottle LCBO Appearance: Wonderful thick creamy dark tan head atop an opaque black velvet body. Aroma: Mocha, raisins, figs, vanilla, toffee, chocolate, heaven? Flavour: Delicious deep malt complexity, chocolate and toffee, port like finish, accented with alcohol. Mouthfeel: Smooth, velvety, a noticeable raspy carbonation that is not astingent at all. Lovely balance between hop and malt. Long malty finish with a lingering warming alcohol kick. Overall: One of the best stouts on the market for me. Very consistent.

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