I enjoyed this Stout every bit as much as Samuel Smith’s Imperial, if not more. An excellent sweet stout which I have no problem drinking more than one of in a sitting

Bien noire, petit collet persistant et belle dentelle. Arome torreffie de cafe, de caramel et de cherry. Corps bien rond et massif, légèrement sirupeux sur la finale. Belle longueur sur le café et le cherry.

bottle, courtesy of jaghana. Deep black, with a small beige head. Intenive yraomas of dark chocolate and coffee. Smooth and velvety on the palate, loads of chocolate and coffee, not too sweet, not too dry. Perfectly balanced and so, so smooth and drinkable. Superb stuff!

Pours dark brown with a large and leggy tan head. Aroma is roasted coffee malts and molasses. Taste follows suit with notes of chocolate, some hops and a touch of booze. This one was a surprise - a very rich and satisfying English stout.

Can bought in Kandy, Sri Lanka. Very dark brown with a big light brown head. Aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate as well as molasses. Balanced taste but lacks complexity. A bit thin mouthfeel ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nuplastikk (5257) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 25, 2015
16oz can. Big, sugary, sweet molasses body. Captures the style well enough, but sort of on the cheaper end of the spectrum with the ingredients. Foamy beige head on top of an opaque brown-black body. Definitely the best beer made in that area of the world that I’ve had. Classic world beer.

Dark brown color. Aroma: roasted, molasses, dried apples. Good roasted malt taste with porto and coffee.
