This used to be one of my favorite stouts and one that got me into stouts in the first place. Back then I would probably give it perfect marks but years later after tasting becoming a beer snob spending ungodly amounts of money on overpriced rare beer this just doesn’t stand up anymore. I’m assuming the high rating is from high availability and people tasting a decent stout for the first time? If that is the case good for you and the good news is there are even better ones out there! Go find them!

WOAH!! This stuff is UNDER-RATED. This stout is VERY good. I’m really suprised that a stout from Sri Lanka is freaking great. You all need to get this stuff. 2.99$ 22oz. at Binny’s.

magicmn (120) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JAN 18, 2015
Brown to light black. Light aroma of roasted malt or barley. Roasted bread and barley taste but body is too light and you can feel alochol at finish. Good for a mass beer.

BeerMountie (117) - Placentia, Newfoundland, CANADA - APR 27, 2006
Pours a dark brown almost black with a thick dark brown head. Aroma of Coffee and malt. Tast contains malt and some sweetness. Overall a very good beer. Thaks to Mr. Manning for sending this one my way.

nj_BierMaven (116) - Flemington, New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2014
From a can, pours inky black with a solid beige head. Intense distribution of tiny bubbles. Malty toasty aroma. Roasted malt and coffee tones with uncommon dryness at this ABV. Expected a syrupy mouthful but no, there is a mystery here in combination of dryness, ABV and mouthfeel. Great stout.

toffsbury (115) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2011
Roasty, full bodied... lovely nearly-opaque blackness with a touch of red at the edges. Bitterness and coffee notes in the taste. From a bottle in Ontario, "best before December 2011". According to the ingredients list, there’s no water. No wonder it’s so intense.

HopsformyHips (113) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - MAR 29, 2005
This was a very very nice stout specimine. Big beautiful litght brown head on a nice dark brown pour. Bitter sweet chocolate and a subtle roasted coffee flavor. Nothing outstanding, but nicely balanced with some sweet darker fruits. Just a very stable stout.
