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. It’s texture is quite smooth, but bubbly. I would take my lion stout anywhere. Even on a date.

Pours black-brown, with brown head. Aromas of burnt malts, nuts, mild dark fruit. Flavors of burnt malt, nuts, raisin, chocolate, toffee, coffee and alcohol, nice bitter finish. Great taste that takes you for a ride, pretty sweet but nice finish. Very Tastey!!

Colour of black liquorice with a head the colour of milk chocolate shavings. Aroma is of a chocolate milk that has been made with 60% cocoa chocolate Light hop bitterness which is overpowered by the chocolate and coffee malt flavors which give it a sticky sweet and extremely drinkable character. Alcohol is present and warming but not too strong to lose points. Incredibly drinkable beer and goes down like bittersweet candy.

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.

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.
