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

Pours out dark brown. Smells malty and roasted. Taste is smooth and very drinkable. Very enjoyable

mybrainhurts (400) - North Dakota, USA - APR 9, 2006
Pours perfectly dark with a chewy, toasty tan head. Delicious looking. Aroma is a bit odd. Almost like an open freezer smell. ( I don’t get it either ) With hints of red wine and spicy alcohol. Purple grapes, exotic roasted coffee, a touch of smoke, and peppery alcohol. Chewy body and fairly complex. Very unique.

Jayb0 (1218) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2006
An excellent and offbeat stout with strong aroma but fairly delicate coffee, chocolate, and fruit interweaving while maintaing a bit ABV.

Lowe1983 (1632) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2006
Pours a dark black color with a thick brown head. Aroma is strong with chocolate, with coffee, caramel, and a small hint of alcohol. Flavor is strong with coffee with a hint of chocolate and caramel and sweet dark fruit. A decent stout worth trying again.

piscator34 (2647) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 3, 2006
Near black in colour with slightly higher than average carbonation. Aromatic profile begins with a somewhat pilsner-like sulfur hit before evolving picking up notes of mild coffee and plum. It’s fairly light in the mouth, and has some intriguing yet light flavors of espresso, chocolate, and a bit of caramel. Overall, this is fairly restrained as far as stouts go, but I could see this one being quite nice in the hot weather. Thanks radiomgb.

Holly crap...I never actually expected this beer to be that good...I thought the high rating was a novelty factor because it was from Sri Lanka. Pours a dark ruby brown and has a fizzy mocha head. Aroma is of burnt chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor is similar...except a bit of muted coffee and caramel come in. Mouthfeel is very smooth and creamy...an oil slick. Pretty good stuff.

I found this beer to be quite a nice, well-rounded little treat. The malt character is luxe and the hoppy notes are team players, not ball-hogs. The beer pours a nearly opaque, very dark brown color with a large, frothy, tan mostly and quickly diminishing head. The aroma is malty with big, heavy notes of roasted grain, lots of coffee and plenty of chocolate; hoppy with moderate, understated notes of resin/pine and herbs and a light note of clean, dry, straw; Yeasty with a light note of damp basement; Miscellaneous notes of moderately heavy smoke, light notes of raisin and alcohol. The flavor is heavily sweet and lightly bitter with a long, lightly bitter, lightly acidic, moderately sweet finish. Alcohol is quite well hidden, only apparent as tummy-warmth. The body is medium-to-full, the texture is velvety and the carbonation is soft.

A rather odd beer. Nose of (I kid you not) black olives. All in all, a pretty decent beer, but it doesn’t make my list of top ten stouts by a long shot. I can say that it is without a doubt the best beer I have ever had from Sri Lanka. Take that how you will. Worth giving it a spin if you’re looking to try something new.
