Could be one of the tastiest stouts out there. Look for a real thick dark pour, with a moderate light brown head. The taste is intensely rich in sweet malts reminiscent of mocha. Itís texture is quite smooth, but bubbly. I would take my lion stout anywhere. Even on a date.

scottyshades (130) - Parkland, Florida, Florida, USA - SEP 20, 2012
A: Pours pitch black with a solid khaki head. Good retention with ruby highlights S: Toffee, caramel, cocoa, big roasted notes, and burnt sugar - almost brown sugar T: Burnt sugar again, bittersweet, dark fruits and berries MF/O: Pretty viscous but not on the extreme end. A nice one, especially given the $1.20 price tag

A black pour with a brown head. Aroma is chocolate, malts and coffee. Taste is very sweet...liquorice, sugar, chocolate and some malts. Bit too sweet for me but nice.

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.

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. Iím really suprised that a stout from Sri Lanka is freaking great. You all need to get this stuff. 2.99$ 22oz. at Binnyís.
