Bottle from HWC: Black in color with a small creamy beige head. Aroma is milk chocolate with a hint of alcohol. Flavor is lightly bitter with some chocolate and coffee a touch of licorice and hints of smoke. Palate light and creamy. Complex and interesting. MiP (15943) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2005
Bottle. Black and thick, big light brown head (hm, that came out a bit dodgy). Full, sweet flavour, some coffee. Salty liquorice aftertaste. Thick syrupy mouthfeel. jercraigs (10651) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2005
Bottle labeled as Sinha Stout. Black bodied. Moderate chocolate brown head foreshadows the aroma of mild roast and chocolate. A thin layer of acidity lurks beneath. Flavour is surprisingly not sweet, with both a hoppy bitterness and a mild roasty acidity swirling beneath the dark roast malt character. Medium palate is smooth yet oddly watery all at once. Nice beer that failed to impress on this palate. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2005
Bottled. Black opaque colour, big brown foamy head, lacing. Roasted malt and coffee along with hints of raisins in aroma. Roasted malt, coffee and a bit soapish hints in flavour. Sticky palate and sweetish aftertaste. roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2005 Pours a thick dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma to me smelled like a mix of roasted chocolate and beef jerkey which is very interesting. Flavor is very similar to the aroma, starting with sweet dry roasted malts then finishing with that same smokey beef jerkey flavor (though not bad like u might imagine). Overall, I found it a pretty light satisfying stout.

Opaque with a creamy head. Fruity aroma, licorice notes, roasted malt. Medium slick body, slightly syrupy yet finishing a bit dry. Sweet flavor, light sourness mostly malt and real smooth. DuffMan (10548) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 19, 2005
Black with a creamy beige head. Heavy smoky roasted aroma, very nice. Palate delivers what the nose promises. A really nice surprise, given this is Sri Lanken in origin (much better than Sandoo of the same origin). LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 16, 2005
