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!.

Motobashi (107) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
Poured dark black with a creamy, thick, tan head. Moderately carbonated. Sweet caramel aroma. Wow! Great flavour. Slightly oakey. The extra alcohol is evident, but not overpowering. Smooth, medium length finish. Will add this to the list of keepers.

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.

This is good stuff, period. I will have a hard time buying any other dark beer after this. This will become the measuring stick for all things dark!

Sinha stout, aka Lion 330ml bottle LCBO Appearance: Wonderful thick creamy dark tan head atop an opaque black velvet body. Aroma: Mocha, raisins, figs, vanilla, toffee, chocolate, heaven? Flavour: Delicious deep malt complexity, chocolate and toffee, port like finish, accented with alcohol. Mouthfeel: Smooth, velvety, a noticeable raspy carbonation that is not astingent at all. Lovely balance between hop and malt. Long malty finish with a lingering warming alcohol kick. Overall: One of the best stouts on the market for me. Very consistent.

Pours black with a tan thin head. aroma is malty with a little bit of alcohol in the nose. Taste is very rich there is lots of coffee caramel and bitter chocolate flavors. Overall a good stout even though it is a tad bit weak on flavor and there is a lingering alcohol feeling that takes away from the beer.
