COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The dark caramel, large dense headed brew, with its 8.8% alcoholic content, is unique due to its sweet notes of chocolate and coffee interspersed into a foundation of dark roasted barley. Symbolic black to denote leadership, power, focus and strength, is dominant in the labeling as the lion journeys in the twilight unafraid, unbowed and unchallenged.

CacheManyHose (904) - HONG KONG - APR 10, 2019
UPDATED: APR 10, 2019 Pours a watery but opaque cola red-brown with a tan sudsy head that dissipates. Smells of dark malt, moderately peanut, toffee, burnt brown sugar, oat, cranberry, red tea. Taste is dark malt, coffee beans, dark chocolate, finish is slightly dusty grain. Body is on the thin side, moderate acidity balanced by peanut, oat and dark malt bitterness. ABV quite well hidden. Unexpectedly good!

HKdIPA (1002) - HONG KONG - APR 10, 2019
UPDATED: APR 10, 2019 Bottle to glass at Hotal Colombo in HK. Black syrupy pour with foamy light tan head. Some sediment. Aroma is sweet, coffee, milk chocolate, alcohol. Taste is the same. Boozy. Slick palate. Not bad but not great.

axadiver (55) - Danbury, Connecticut, USA - MAR 31, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2019 Decent stout, taste, pour, color are better than expected considering the ABV.

4.1
xist_ (126) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2019 Jet black body, large tan-coloured head. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, and alcohol. Taste is very balanced, especially considering the alcohol content. Body is lots of chocolate, some coffee and sweet malts. Finish is nice and dry, with a touch of warmth. If this didn't have the alcohol in the aroma I wouldn't have guessed this is more than 5% ABV based off the taste. Slick mouthfeel, too. Awesome stout. Highly recommended if you get the chance to try it.

3.7
coil (412) - Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2019 330ml bottle from beersofeurope.co.uk. Black colour with tan head. Big dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, cocoa beans, coffee beans, light dark fruit, espresso, light liquorice, light cappuccino, light sour, light brown sugar, light stone fruit, mocha. Nice gimmick free classic foreign stout.

3.2
berkshirejohn (7565) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2019 [33cl bottle from Total Wines, Naples, Fl.] A glossy black pour with a thin beige cap; sweet sugary aroma; smooth in the mouth with a chocolatey malt taste with soem sour notes; then a rather thin finish. Disappointing, I was looking forward to trying this.

3.4
maupie (1515) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - MAR 3, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2019 33cl fles. Helder donker bruin kleur, fijne romige bruine schuimkraag. De geur van chocolade en rozijnen. Smaak is zoet, chocolade, licht cacao en licht karamel. Medium lichaam, veel koolzuur.

3.3
carlos88 (49) - - FEB 28, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2019 Cerveza muy potente, es una masa compacta se podría decir, negra, casi sin espuma y muy bien equilibrada. Esta cerveza tiene muy buenas críticas y calificaciones pero no me acaba de convencer, no la beberia de forma habitual .

3.7
Navers (435) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - FEB 15, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2019 Pours black with really big dense head. Rich malty aroma with coffee, chocolate, roasted, liquorice and sour hints. Taste like a solid classic stout, sweet, malty, cacao, liquorice, metallic, some berries and sour fruits.

3.7
pich.83 (259) - ITALY - FEB 6, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2019 Birra nera, schiuma fine e non molto persistente. Al naso profumi di tostatura, fondi di caffè e cioccolato. In bocca si percepisce una nota alcolica, che sovrasta su tutti gli altri sapori percepiti al naso. Non male. Pensavo molto peggio
