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-

So well balanced, it feels mild, while it actually is strong. Delicious stout.

Very opaque for a regular stout. large creamy tan head. Strong roasted chocolate malt aroma. Smooth and creamy with the 8% not noticable at all. Nice.

Bottle. Pours thick dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, some sweetness. Flavor repeats. Nice and thick. ABV quite the bonus.

tilldeath (109) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 10, 2006
Bottle. Pours a deep dark brown with a large thick and deep brown head. Aroma is full of dark roasty malts, vanilla notes, chocolatey, and fruity. Taste is lotsa sweet chocolate and roasty malt flavors.....raisins and plums...plus some latent bitter flavors. Mouthfeel is nice and creamy with a full body. Finish is nicely bitter and slightly fruity also. Better than anticipated....tasty!.

UnDecaf (106) - Mountain View, California, USA - NOV 14, 2010
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.

Opaque black with creamy mocha head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate and burnt toast. Dark chocolate lingers on the mouth for 60+ secs. Great roasted barley flavor, excellent balance

magicmn (106) - 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.
