Not a bad stout but I have to agree it is a little thin for a stout and it also suffers from a bad case of being too hyped up. Nice mocha chocolate taste.

Bottled. Dark muddy brown. Rich aroma and flavour: Aroma: Fruits and cocoa. Flavour: Milk chocolate, coffee but a bit too swet maybe with a clean maltiness. Creamy palate.

winkle (476) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 15, 2005
Bottled: Poured a translucent black with mahogany highlights. Smallish head with some lacing. Subdued chocolate aroma. Flavour was a mellow blending of coffee, toast and chocolate resting on a backbone of alcohol. Thin body, smooth dirty toasted malt finish. Not exceptional but nice and balanced.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUN 10, 2005
12 oz Bottle: Pours a deep dark brown, nearly opaque but some faint light does manage its way through, with what started as a nice big hilly head, but diminished quickly. Aromas of coffee and chocolate, roast as well. Flavor was of milk chocolate and hints of smoke not present in the aroma. Mouthfeel was lighter than I expected.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Black with a huge foamy dark brown head. Aroma is dry and heavily roasted. Milk, chocolate, and coffee notes pepper the aroma as well. A very sweet stout that is cloying. Flavor is mostly sweet chocolate. Very smooth and malty. This was too sweet.

(BJCP Class) Wow what a great beer from Sri Lanka. A strong Fruitiness to start of this beer almost like a Strong Ale type flavor. Good strong head with a great Dark brown color. Great Roastiness semi dry with a smokiness that is awesome. A great beer.

Miksu (4972) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - APR 16, 2006
Bottled. Opaque black. Sweet, malty and roasted aroma with rye and apple. Flavor is full and sweet with coffee as well as chocolade. Salty licorice in the finish. Tasty, calls for more bitterness though.

This beer is called Sinha Stout here in Ontario. Nice alternative to the usual UK suspects, but won’t be replacing them for me. Alcohol is too high for regular enjoyment, too.
