625mL pours black with thick tan head. Aroma is coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts, and alcohol. Taste similar to aroma, nutty with molasses, has bitter alcohol finish. Nothing extraordinary, except maybe that its from Sri Lanka, but very enjoyable.

johnnnniee (2042) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 29, 2011
Pours a dark brown/black with a modest tan head the retreats quickly lacing the glass on the way down. Smell of dried fruit, and a bit of cocoa, some phenolic or higher alcohol in there to. Tastes of bitter roasted chocolate and coffee with a bit of dark fruit, then ends with some roast bitterness and a bit of alcohol or maybe fusel, its muted but there and I can’t put my finger on it. Medium to thin body with a creamy/oily mouthfeel. Lingering roast bitterness after each sip. Good stout, a bit to vinous for my taste.

Tasted from 12.7oz bottle into rocks glass. It poured an opaque black color with persistent thin brown foam and a little lace. True-to-style aromas and flavors of a foreign stout, stuck me as an underattenuated Baltic Porter. Caramelly, bready, tart, grainy, toasty and very roasty. Some distinctly fruity English ale yeast esters. Medium body and low-medium carbonation, mouthfeel a tad too syrupy, lasting bittersweet aftertaste. It grew harsher as it warmed, but not too bad. This bottle stated 8.8% alcohol, and you could definitely feel it. My first beer from Sri Lanka, and I’m always excited to discover new stouts.

Very dark pour with a huge head. Light grain aroma. Good mouth, nice and creamy like milk. Taste has a slight raisin flavor running through it. I found some metallic tastes too, but that could have been from the can. Pretty complex but light.

Earthy burnt smell. Very little mocha aftertaste a little chocolate. Slight bitter but smooth and dry. Need to try again, can't quite peg it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

youdictategood (256) - Florida, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Pours black with a lasing tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee grounds, and a little alcohol. Taste is pretty standard stout - coffee, chocolate, roast. Finishes with an alcohol sting. A little thin on the tongue.

jeremyh70 (587) - Missouri, USA - APR 14, 2013
Pours dark brown with a nice dark khaki head and good lacing. Chocolate aroma and a hint of umami. Taste of dark chocolate roasted malt with a hint of black licorice. Finishes with a light bitterness. Mouthfeel is bubbly and moderate with medium body and medium/high carbonation. Solid stout that is well crafted. ---Jeremy H

A nice intro to stouts. Hints of roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate. A bit skunky but roasted malt still present. A little thin for a stout.
