Sri Lanka’s finest produce along with its pristine beaches, Rajapaksa’a Ltte bashing, Sanath Jayasuriya’s batting, Susanthika Jayasinghe’s muscles and Rosy Senanayake’s ageless beauty. I’m drinking the Lion stout right now as you read my review.. Its the best Stout ever.. Hic!

Raistlin (282) - London, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2016
Pours dark black colour and has big tanned head that leaves lots of lacing behind. Lasts long too. Not sweet like other stouts at all, and you can’t tell it has over 8 percent of alcohol. Aroma is of roasted barley, coffee, chocolate, and dark fruit. Tastes of dark chocolate, roasted barley, espresso with a sourness and burnt notes. This beer was so smooth with a slick medium body and low carbonation. Good at hiding its alcohol and very warming.

labeerinthum (508) - Milano, ITALY - AUG 17, 2016
Bottiglia. Nel gusto al naso c’è il sapore forte dell’orzo tostato che sopravanza tutti gli altri. L’intensità olfattiva è più che normale e la persistenza olfattiva è apprezzabile. Il cappello è di schiuma cremosa, aderente, dalla buona tenuta e con merletti a contornare il vetro come finale. La grandezza delle bollicine è medio-fine. La carbonazione è media. Il colore è scuro impenetrabile. Il corpo è pieno. L’amaro è deciso. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e la persistenza gustativa è buona.Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono luppolate e di tostato. Il finale è lungo, secco e asciutto. Il retrogusto è di media intensità. L’aroma in bocca riporta sentori di miele, cioccolato, caffè, frutta secca, pane tostato. Alcol presente non invadente.

googleimage83 (22) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2016
Pours opaque dark brown, with small coffee-coloured head that doesn’t last beyond the first few sips. Firm chocolate and butterscotch punch on the nose, some hints of cherry and grape. Taste is roasty and somewhat creamy, with some brown sugar sweetness - not getting the fruity notes as much. Leafy hop presence, finish is comparatively dry Slightly chalky mouthfeel. Solid, worthwhile stout.

330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours almost black with a thick foamy tan head. Aroma of fresh bread, molasses, dried fruit. Taste is similar, some coffee notes, very sweet up front but balanced with some bitterness.

lokis333 (374) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - JUL 31, 2016
Jet black color with medium coffee brown foam. Aromas, dark chocolate malts with subtle hints of alcohol and liqueur (Bailey’s), dark strong coffee with tones of roasted coffee beans and light coffee smoke followed by light fruity sour tick at the end. Palate, full body with very thick and creamy texture leaving deep roasted smoke finish. Taste, is creamy and smokey of chocolate, coffee beans with this interesting somewhat milky but fruity sour-ish end to it that is interesting. Overall, interesting heavy and full bodied beer with nice smooth creamy smoked coffee taste.

nazzty (1256) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2016
Way too sweet and oily for my taste. It tastes like the heaviness from imperial stout have married the sweetness of a brown ale. I tried it with food and by itself to notice if there were any difference. It was and the brew works better with food, even better if there are spicy flavors which takes away some of the heavy and bready notes from the beer.
