Sri Lanka? There was a lot of hype surrounding this one, and it lived up to it.

Thick and black, exhibiting a creamy tan head with a vanilla, ground coffee, chocolate, and smoky malt aroma. Rich flavor treads the line of oversweetness, as the sugary mocha and cocoa malt flavors dominate the underlying hop flavor. Finishes nicely with a bitter, lasting afteraste. Despite what Michael Jackson thinks of this beer, I find it a bit too rich.

fishman (350) - Philadelphia, USA - DEC 2, 2001
Whoa, that's dark. Black with creamy tan head. Chocolaty aroma with some mild coffee undertones. Roasty and light bodied with hints of coffee and chocolate.

Few head. Coffee and cocoa aroma. Praline flavour with a disapointing, short aftertaste.

Got Stout? (173) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 24, 2001
My offering was 8%, as clearly indicated on the bottle. This offering seemed to be a Sweet Stout trying to play with the big Imperials, but getting its ass kicked. No big standout flavors or complexity, but a respectable session stout. Mildly roasty.

Strong chocolate and mocha presense. This may sound wierd but I could swear as I drank this beer it helped my sinuses clear up.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2003 You guys are all crazy. This was the most magnificent and unique stout that I have ever tried. Great cocoa and mocha flavors. Although, mine was very fresh which could definitely help.

Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUN 16, 2001
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2005 Dark with a big and rocky head. Rich, sweet and chewy. Decently balanced. Evident alcohol. Subtle chocolate and coffee flavors were nice. Roasty and a little spicy. Somewhat cloying at times. Pretty good stuff, but like a few others, I found it just a little under par to the hype. A decent stout, sure, but not as great as some make it out to be.
