seymour (1435) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JUL 25, 2012
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

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 (711) - 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

Cbuk1013 (243) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUN 17, 2013
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.

RexTalionis (2437) - FINLAND - SEP 24, 2013
Bottled. Pours black in color with a tan head. Roasted coffee, dark chocolatey notes, sweetish syrup and some wooden notes in aroma. Quite smooth even if sligthly thick mouthfeel and feels a bit raw. Coffee liqour, burnt wood, roasted malty notes in taste. A bit harsh though on the whole. Sweet sugary notes, some coffee and wood in finish.

Fletchwadd (49) - Riverview, Michigan, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Pours out super dark almost black leaving dark tan head. Aroma is of a roasted malt and coco. Taste is of a coffee and leaving almost a tangy aftertaste. Decent brew

lusikka (6241) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 29, 2013

Pours a black colour with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, cream and some berries. Flavour of roasted malts, red berries, some herbal bitterness and yeast. Some honey-like sweetness as well. Medium bodied, thin but smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Finishes sweet and slightly roasty.
