googleimage83 (168) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2016
Pours opaque dark brown, with small coffee-coloured head that doesn’t last beyond the first few sips. Firm chocolate and butterscotch punch on the nose, some hints of cherry and grape. Taste is roasty and somewhat creamy, with some brown sugar sweetness - not getting the fruity notes as much. Leafy hop presence, finish is comparatively dry Slightly chalky mouthfeel. Solid, worthwhile stout.

lokis333 (535) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - JUL 31, 2016
Jet black color with medium coffee brown foam. Aromas, dark chocolate malts with subtle hints of alcohol and liqueur (Bailey’s), dark strong coffee with tones of roasted coffee beans and light coffee smoke followed by light fruity sour tick at the end. Palate, full body with very thick and creamy texture leaving deep roasted smoke finish. Taste, is creamy and smokey of chocolate, coffee beans with this interesting somewhat milky but fruity sour-ish end to it that is interesting. Overall, interesting heavy and full bodied beer with nice smooth creamy smoked coffee taste.

nazzty (1378) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2016
Way too sweet and oily for my taste. It tastes like the heaviness from imperial stout have married the sweetness of a brown ale. I tried it with food and by itself to notice if there were any difference. It was and the brew works better with food, even better if there are spicy flavors which takes away some of the heavy and bready notes from the beer.

Lion stout  A deep brown with red highlights and light beige foam. A chocolate and figs aroma on a med-full  that delivers lots of chocolate and dark fruits. Decent.

3.1
Enteogenisk (162) - Bålsta, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2016
Bottle in wine glass. My first ceylon beer is quite a peculiar experience. It is a hoppy stout on both nose and palate, and the choice of hops is interesting as it gives the brew a very vegetative profile. Not overly pleasant in my book but I realize it might be a matter of taste (isn’t it always?).
