Excellent. Sweet yet strong aroma. Rich chocolate, caramel, coffee, and a bit of malt taste... absolutely one of the best stouts Iíve ever had. Second only to Guinness

Bottle. Dark pour with nice creamy head. Blackberries and molasses on the nose. Robust flavor with lots of molasses and mocha and a dark fruit finish. Very intense flavor.

Pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma is a sweet malt, grape, and coffee. The chocolate comes up front in the flavor also traces of malts, mocha, coffee, and raisen. Great beer, with a creamy palate.

Pours dark with a thick tan head that is pretty well formed. Aroma is earthy malts. It definitely has some chocolaty notes. Initial flavor is sweet with some light bitterness mixed in. The finish is a powdery chocolate..dry on the tongue with some bitterness like baking chocolate, but still primarily the earthy sweet flavor. There is some spice flavoring if you swish it around your mouth, but it is quickly overtaken by the muting dirt taste (not unpleasant). I would buy this beer any time.

Black with a thick brown head, but eventually becomes just a lace. The high alcohol is very present in the aroma with some roasted malt too. Taste is very pronounced with bitter roasted malts flavor. I sense a little coffee malt also. The high alcohol content is also very pronounced in the flavor.

Dark pour with a huge 3 finger brown head that took about two minutes to settle. I could see white pinhead size chucks of who knows what floating around the outside of the glass. I held this stout up to a 300 watt spot light to see if I could get a better view of what was floating in it and the light didnít even come close to penetrating. Creamy chocolate flavor with a medium body and mild carbonation finish. Very enjoyable.

A glorious brew. Poured from 33cl bottle into a pint glass. Dark, almost black with notes of dark ceylon tea, chocolate truffles, port, and dessert spices. The mouthfeel is creamy without being syrupy allowing for the flavors to develop into a nice savory warming finish. Yum!

Pours black with thick, bubbly brown head. Aroma of raisin, metal and red wine. Tastes of molasses, booze, raisin, coffee and chocolate. Long lingering aftertaste of booze and raisins.

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.
