bubbleflubber (2197) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - JUN 24, 2006
An opaque pour with a huge mahogany dark tan head. Aromas of chocolates, cherries, toasted grain and a roasted sweetness. It has a sweet milk chocolate flavor, with a roasted finish. Im also picking up some toasted cherries in the mix. Its a very good stout... one of the best Ive had. The mouthfeel is creamy and sublime, never heavy and subtly well-balanced. Great offering!

I was really impressed with this stout. The Lion Stout pours black with a decent tan head that diminishes rather quickly and leaves minimal lacing. The aroma is of sweet chocolate and roasted malts. The flavor profile follows this exactly. The first sip is fairly sweet and extremely smooth and creamy. You get more of the roasted flavors at the end. Ill be more than glad to have another soon."

Tranquillity (2043) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2006
Very good aroma of burned malt and cigar. The taste is a bit like toast in the morning, with coffee, chocolate and caramel. Long aftertaste. A good beer by all standards but not my thing, even though it should be. Id go for Dragon Stout instead.

rebelbrewer (125) - Lithonia, Georgia, USA - JUN 18, 2006
330ml bottle poured into a snifter glass. Deep, deep dark brown in color an had only a small thin brown head that quickly disappeared. Chocolate, fruit and alcohol aroma. The taste is excellent, with hints of chocolate, light and dark fruit and a very faint roasted malt. It has a very creamy feel on the palate. Nice stuff.

Tessic (1079) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2006
Black with a tan head, this stout has scents of chocolate and spice with a little yeast throuwn in. The flavour is very good with flavours of dark chocolate and roasty malts. The finish has a coffee flavour in it. Thick and creamy, very good stout.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2006
(05.08.06) 650 mL brown bottle from DiCarlos, Mundelein, IL. 8% ABV. Poured opaque black with small off-white head. Soft carbonation. Roasted malt aroma. Medium bodied stout that starts with light malt sweetness and roasted malt, licorice, and chocolate flavors. Finished dry with light bitterness. Mild flavored and rather thin, this ale is more porter-like than stout-like. Very good drinkable beer.

nothing about this one to really get too excited about, but a solid stout none-the-less. dark brown with a big khaki head. roasted malt flavors with some coffee, chocolate and dark fruits. it would be easy to knock back several of these!

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2006
A very enjoyable stout. Nice appearance and a mild but pleasant aroma. Flavour is dry and roasty with lots of chocolate and hints of vanilla. Very nice and certainly the best I have tried from Sri Lanka! ;o) Incidentally, this was my rating no. 750.

eaglefan538 (3035) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 2, 2006
This was a really enjoyable stout. Poured a pitch dark black color with red showing during the pour. Head was average/decent for a stout and the lacing standard. Aroma was coffee, chocolate and a touch of perhaps toffee. Mouthfeel was smooth, thick, and somewhat creamy. Flavor was rich with somewhat of a sweet stout taste of coffee/chocolate that hid the alcohol well and transitioned to a touch of a burnt flavor at the end... a perfect finish. Wow, Sri Lanka, woulda never thunk it!
