Grumbo (566) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2013
Bottle from international food store in Ipswich. Black in colour, with a large frothy brown head. Roasted malt, coffee, and very sugary sweet aroma. Too sticky on the palate, has a full body, minimal carbonation with a very sweet finish.

Can shared at the tasting. Pours dark brown almost black with a brown head. Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. Taste - very sweet with coffee notes, sticky syrupy mouthfeel. The beer is not in its best, feels stale, will be happy to try it again.

McZythos (35) - Nancy, FRANCE - OCT 7, 2013
Good head, forthy foam. Very black beer. The nose shows aromas of chocolate coffee and caramel. Nothing exceptional. The body is light, very light ,and I was quite surprised because the ABV is high, although there is alcoholic notes and some hints of iron or metal which are quite disturbing and covers the light black currant, plum and port-wine aftertaste. Quite disappointing...

jsmerig (1238) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Pours a deep ruby red/black with a dark tan head. Aroma of slightly roasted syrup mixed with a doughy scent. Taste is sweet and a little lighter than expected. Very drinkable with a chocolate coffee finish. Mouthfeel was a bit thinner than expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hanoi (382) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle from Tesco’s (7.7% not the 8.8 listed here). Nose is strongly metallic, some coco, lactose and coffee giving a latte note beneath the metal. Taste is lactose, leading to malt, latte, soft chocolate in a rich smooth finish which hits a slightly thin bump near the end. Mouthfeel is good. It’s a decent high strength stout with a poor nose, but this is a style that in the hands of American’s produces some of the world’s best beers.

When one thinks of Sri Lanka, they think of chutney and saaris, but not stouts. At 8% alc., the bit of alcohol is noticeable. Nicely smooth and creamy. Maybe even a bit nutty and roasty. Too much bite.
