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.

Bottle labelled Sinha Stout. Opaque reddish brown colour with a fizzy tan head. Chocolate and lightly acidic aroma. Milk chocolate and lightly fruity flavours. Creamy and medium bodied.

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.

Bottle 0.625 L. Creamy lightbrown fully lasting head. Dark brown colour. Week but nice aroma. Nice coffee/caramel balanced flavor. Long finish. A little watery palate regarding 8.0 abv, but a good stout!

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2006 Black opaque with decent dark tan head the has decent lasting. Nose is faint, chocolate with mocha and slight anise. Flavor is nice, roasted mocha coffee, medium bitterness, and a slight metallic taste that is mildly offputting. Palate has a medium-thin body and somewhat watery, yet still smooth texture and a lively bit of carbonation. Finish is short and mildly acidic, like a dark coffee. A decent stout that really never shows it’s 8% potency, but was not exceptionally complex or interesting.

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...
