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.

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!

RaphaelN (195) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2007
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.

Bottle, poured black with lots of tan bubbles, lots of lacing on the glass, aroma of chocolate, vanilla, dark chocolate, sweet chocolate, stout fragrances, little woodsy, faint coffee smells and a little alcohol in the nose as it warms, taste of chocolate, dark malt, coffee, light wood on the tongue, faint hop bite, smooth drink.

Jwasciuk (198) - Lowell, Michigan, USA - MAR 6, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2007 Pours muddy black with a large creamy light brown head. Aroma is toasted malts, leather and earthy esters. Flavor is well balanced, rosted malts, and chocolate more apperant in the finish. Medium bodied oliy, softly carbonated a bit of metallic in the finish.

Bottle at Home - shared with Mette - before going to a "Caviar & Champagne" dinnerarrangement. Black - light brown head. Roasted, coffee, high chokolate, sweetness, light hoppy, a bit of vegetable in the aroma. Nice but not fantastic...

Great roasty smell but not a lot of roast flavor. It felt a bit thin for a stout but you’d never know it was eight percent. Would definetly buy again.
