3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
625 ml bottle, pours with an impressive pillowy head that lasts. Lots of sticky lace. Smells very mildly roasty with chocolate covered marshmallows, some beef jerkey. Taste is richly malty with smooth chocolate and a touch of coffee. Very smooth drinking beer, finishes out with a light coating of hop bitterness and detectable alcohol. Good beer, glad I tried it, wouldn’t have guessed Sri Lanka-

Finish is nicely bitter and slightly fruity also. Better than anticipated....tasty!.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
