Not a bad stout. Roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate flavors. A bit skunky on the aromw, but roasted malt still present. A little thin, but not terribly so.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2005 Pours black with a nice creamy brown head that leaves good lacing in my glass, roasty, fruity malty aromas. Taste like plums, chocolate and smoke, medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel, finishes a bit sweet, alcohol comes through as it warms, not as good as I was expecting but still a good stout.

Bottle. Black with ruby tints and a lush and grand brown head. Lots of chocolate and a sweet malt aroma with some lingering liqueur mist. A thick and creamy malted chocolate flavor.

Some nice roasted chocolate and toffee notes, and some light caramel present as well. Thisis actually not bad, as I was not expecting too much, but this was actually very refreshing and easy to drink.

Has a great head and mouthfeel. Some flavorful nuances show through more than in most high-alcohol stouts but my personal preference is for less sweet stouts including the most famous, Guinness. This is great for people who enjoy stout like a barleywine. One thing that's easy to forget is that this decidedly Western brew comes from .. SRI LANKA! Lion Stout gets 4 extra Overall points for being able to come in as a novice and become one of the establishment big boys.

Pours oily black - very dark & medium head. Aroma of coffee and wine. Roasted malt flavors dominate. Warming and quite smooth. Somewhat of a greasy mouthfeel.
