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.

Chocolaty, fruity, roasty dark chocolate aroma. Dark black with a light brown head. Flavors of smoke, chocolate and more smoke! Medium body, creamy texture. Thanks for sharing Brigadier.

Bottle. Pours pitch black with a brownish head. Aroma is quite smoked and barbeque-like with butterish notes. Flavour is interesting… a mix of wood and a bonfire – actually burning wood maybe. Smoked definitely, and has an oak-aged feel to it. Dryish finish. Palate feels a bit thin. 11-07-06.

Ok... am i the only one to have smelled black olives? I took 2 just to make sure... but man... this is one impressive stout... nothing spectacular... typical Stoutish head and body. The aroma is incredibly overwhelming compared to its "regular" caffeinated taste...

Now this is one dark beer. Completely opaque with a thick creamy head that’s darker than most beers. Chicory, toasted malt, raisin, dark chocolate aromas. Full bodied. Smooth caramel, coffee flavour with an odd grape aftertaste. Very tasty. Cheers!

[064-20061014] 330mL (Sinha from LCBO). Raspberry medicine aroma, medium malted with woody fruit and light alcohol. Black body with a large cream long-lasting browny-pink head. Taste is creamy and big, mostly of very burnt grainy toast but with hints of malted coffee and chocolate. Big body feel, creamily coating everything inside the mouth. OVerall good flavour but it doesn’t seem to jibe with the aroma (too burnt).

Finely brewed stout. The palate was fairly complex with interesting flavours that I have never witnessed in a beer before. I coudln’t even tell what most of them were. Nose was coffee and nuts. Flavour was of caramel, chocolate, coffee and some sort of spice that I can’t quite put my finger on. Not my favourite to drink. The flavour really overwhelms me at times, but I would drink this again.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2007 I was having one hell of a time getting any kind of scent off this beer. Not much of an aroma, I could dectect some very slight chocolate scents but that was about it. Pour is a nice opaque black with your typical copper/brown head. Now the taste. This stuff is light as hell. This one definately does not share the typical flavor characteristics of a stout. Its smooth but not malty, and has a bit of a sweet taste to it. Overall I would rate this one slightly above average.
