Pours dark black, no light gets through this, with a tan/light brown head. Aroma is of dark rich malt. Thin body, chocolaty malt flavor, with some interesting mild hop flavors. Some coffee notes, alcohol is hidden well. Great balance and very flavorful.

Aroma is of mocha, carmel, and some molasses. Very dark brown with a thinning brown head. Nice flavor- chocolatey with a hint of hops and coffee. Smooth to the palate. Overall a nice stout! I can see why it is 97%!

A good beer from Sri Lanka? YES!!! This stuff isn’t talked about enough, but the ratings on here prove that us beer conisseurs know a good beer when we see it. This one is absolutely fantastic and quite a bargain! It pours nice and dark with a big, frothy head. The roasted malts mix very well with the dark fruit, caramel, and perhaps chocolate/coffee as well. It’s full of flavor yet is VERY smooth. The finish is great as well. You can’t do much better than this, especially for the price.

330ml bottle. Pours very dark with a nice brown head and good lacing on the glass. Aromas of bitter chocolate, roasty coffee, malt and some caramel. Sweet taste with much the same flavour as the aroma. Medium body but does have a bit of a watery feel to it. My first foreign stout and it was a good one.

Slightly sweet and fruity aroma with some straw like notes as well as some alcohol and of course roasted grains. Large light brown head with good to excellent lacing, but unfortunately the head diminishes rather quickly. Slightly sweet flavour with moderate bitterness which balances out to light bitterness for an average length finish. Full body with a creamy texture.

Can bought in Kandy, Sri Lanka. Very dark brown with a big light brown head. Aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate as well as molasses. Balanced taste but lacks complexity. A bit thin mouthfeel ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I drank a bottle at the Flying Saucer, it was surprisingly good! Good thick stout with a bold taste.
