Gotta love the pic of Michael Jackson on the side of the six pack. Poured with a fairly large tan head. Some ruby highlights show up when held to light. Aroma is sweat socks and day old coffee. Couldn’t get much else in smells. Awful aroma. The mouthfeel is slick with a light playfulness, suprising for the style. Also, plenty of carbonation. The taste has some sugar sweetened coffee. I hate to say it, but I hate sweet coffee. Also a hint of tobacco and some bourbon. This is decent, but nothing to get excited about.

bottle from brickskeller. pours a low head and opaque dark color. very little aroma (could just be the number of beers i’ve had), but flavor is dominated by dark chocolate, nuts, roast, and some other fruitiness (figs?). Finishes far too sweet for my taste: my tongue feels like a sticky mess.

Bottle. Black colour with a big baige head. Light sweet light alcoholic roasted aroma and a sweet light roasted coffee taste. Medium body and a sweet light roasted finish.

ATOmemphis (200) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - MAR 9, 2006
Pours a very black (and thin) color with rich chocolately head that dissipated. Alcohol aroma was immediately released in the pour. Mostly malty nose. Light fruit hints, and some more malt. Relatively thin body for the high alcohol, then again it is not an Imperial Stout (as I originally suspected) and is justifiably ’runny’ or thin bodied. The malty body is not as well balanced as it should be. This is more evident the further I get into the glass. But shit yeah! - that’s a lot of alcohol.

Got this one under the name Sinha Stout. Dark and overly sweet coffee. A full body and lightly hopped. Nice, but that about it.

bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2006
Bottle. Pours almost black with a rather large head. Roasted malty. A bit sweet with notes of coffe and chocolate. Feels a bit too alcoholic for me and also a bit too high carb for me.

yarry (527) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2008
330ml bottle, 8,0% a/v as Sinha Stout Pours an absolute opaque black with a generous brown head. Aroma is rish nutty and coffee with a boozy and chocolate background. The taste is a bit too sweet for my tastes, also boozy but not bad at all for an 8%. Mouthfeel is a bit oily but overall leaves you with a chocolate espresso aftertaste and a slight warm feeling in your stomach.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2008 The aroma is sweet with some off aroma but it’s not so strong as to make it undrinkable. There is also roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. The appearance is dark brown with a small tan head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is average. I am not one of those that think this is a great stout but it’s decent.
