toffsbury (116) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2011
Roasty, full bodied... lovely nearly-opaque blackness with a touch of red at the edges. Bitterness and coffee notes in the taste. From a bottle in Ontario, "best before December 2011". According to the ingredients list, there’s no water. No wonder it’s so intense.

gueuzeisgod (113) - Graham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 21, 2008
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-

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2009 Pours with a huge tan head giving off a nice chocolaty aroma. Opaque black. Extremely malty with almost no bitterness whatsoever which is quite surprising. Finishes with a pretty long slight chocolate sweetness. Almost too sweet and not roasted enough to balance it out. Slightly oily on the palate. Pretty sweet lacing.

HopsformyHips (113) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - MAR 29, 2005
This was a very very nice stout specimine. Big beautiful litght brown head on a nice dark brown pour. Bitter sweet chocolate and a subtle roasted coffee flavor. Nothing outstanding, but nicely balanced with some sweet darker fruits. Just a very stable stout.

aerosol999 (113) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 18, 2006
Aroma: Malted milk and chocolate, coffee, complex roastiness, lingering alcohol. Appearance: Pours dark thick and syrupy. Tan head that recedes quickly Flavour: Thick roasty malt character that disappears quickly, developing into a roasty, dry, complex character with lingering alcohol flavour like irish coffee. Palate: Surprisingly light for such a big beer. Low carbonation, coats the mouth. Overall: Very big beer. Complex flavour that starts malty sweet and finishes dry and alcoholic, vinous and with a low final gravity leaving no stickiness on the lips. A dangerously drinkable beer.

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!.
