AGoodBrew (17) - Ontario, - FEB 26, 2012
The flavor of this beer is a burnt dark chocolate and coffee; a little over done. While this is supposed to be an extra strong stout, the idea of over burning the chocolate and coffee made for a bad mix with such a high level of alcohol. This particular brew has a very oily texture, due to its almost complete lack of carbonation. My palate was left with no real after taste, other than the fact that my mouth feels really greasy. Those of you who enjoy extra strong stouts with extreme burnt flavorings may love this beer. However, this brew was not my cup of tea.

I bought this nectar of birds at the drink of the world in Geneva, I drank it at the hotel room in Paris, before to sleep, such a good idea to find yours delightful dream of penelope for the night. The body is a perfect face of stout, black body intense, thin white and brown head, regular carbonation for the style. The taste is well balanced, I could notice a touch of alcool but it is following by a really nice sweetness and we smell strong notes of grape sugar, roasted malt, small touch of cacao, chocolate, some hop and a perfect balance arriving at your mouth, good relation price/quality.

For the book. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, dry, leather, good. Appearance is dark brown, light brown head, poured thinnish. Taste is dry, roasted malt, dark fruit, slight smoke, coffee, chocolate, I like it. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy body, light carbonation, lightly smoky roasted malt aftertaste. Overall, this is easily the standard for the style.

Data butelkowania: 11.01.2017
Data ważności: 10.07.2017
Kolor: Czarny, zupełnie nieprzejrzysty.
Piana: Drobniuteńka, zwarta jak na azocie. Idzie do gry w maksymalnie szybkim tempie. Pęka do średnich oczek. Gruba oponka wisi nad piwem. Na krawędziach TeKu pozostawia liczne firanki. Piana maluje całą powierzchnię szkła.
Zapach: W aromacie pierwsze klimaty to zderzenie z silną czekoladą. Jest też lekko palony klimat oraz odrobinę słodw w postaci przypalonego karmelu. W tle subtelne orzechowy nuty. Pachnie niczym nie jeden lekki Imperial Stout. Tak na prawdę według BJCP wszystkie Stouty od 8% w grę powinny być klasyfikowane jako Imperial Stouts.
Smak: Smak złożony i nietypowy. Na sam początek piwo pokazuje dość wysoki profil owocowy (czarne porzeczki) i inne ciemne owoce. Pźniej już klasyka stylu: czekolada, ale taka nadziewana owocami (wiśnie, czarne porzeczki), kawa mocno osłodzona i kapka melasy. Alkohol świetnie zatuszowany. Niska tekstura, gładkie odczucie na języku. Ciekawy FES / Imperial Stout. Długą drogę musiało przejść to piwo zanim trafiło na mj stł.
Wysycenie: Niskie. Podsumowanie:
Lion Stout - piwo ze Sri Lanki. Tropical Stout uwarzony w Kambodży w rozmiarze 0,66l. Fajny FES, w zasadzie może nawet Session RIS, jeśli takie pojęcie w ogle istnieje. Wszystko stylowo i w klimacie mocnego stouta. W zasadzie wszystko gra i buczy. Jedyne zastrzezenie mam do wodnistej tekstury. Poza tym gites ;-)))

Bottle. Pitch Black in colour. Very malty; chocolate, coffee, liquorice, roast malts, caramel, brown sugar. Fruity; berries and dark fruit. Some hops for balance. Rather oily in texture. Quite sweet with dryish mildly bitter finish. Tasty beer. (2008)

papat444 (136) - Carignan, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2017
Appearance: Pours a nice black body with an easy thick 3 finger tan head. Smell: Roasted malt with hints of coffee bitterness. Taste: Robust coffee presence but only slightly bitter. Very well rounded & balanced. Mouthfeel: A little bit creamy, more roasted coffee flavor with a little bit of graininess. Malty presence kind of makes it melt in your mouth. Reviewed on: 03-17-2008

Ce lion est un vritable jaguar. En effet cette stout de la brasserie Lion se dmarque par ses lignes pures, distingues mais races, qui peuvent se comparer aux lignes des plus belles sportives de luxe et plus particulirement une Jaguar. Et sans tre ni dune complexit ni dune corpulence extraordinaire, sa ligne gustative, autour du caf est la fois dune telle puret, dune telle finesse et dune telle prcision quelle rentre aisment dans la catgorie des grandes bires. Sorti de son crin, notre stout est dun noir intense (EBC aux alentours de 79) surmonte dune mousse brune nappant tout juste la bire. Le nez est la fois intense et raffin. Le caf, pur, se mlange subtilement aux armes de prune relevs dune pointe de cognac. De toute beaut! Lattaque nous permet de dcouvrir la base principale de ce Lion : des armes de caf grand cru, expresso, secs et intenses, la fois simples et gracieux. La seconde bouche gagne en rondeur en laissant apparatre le chocolat, se parant subtilement de notes de fruits des bois pour confrer une trs belle profondeur aux armes. Larrire bouche continue quant lui sur le caf, fil conducteur de notre dgustation. Dailleurs celui-ci reprendra les devants en troisime bouche, pouss par lamertume, peu intense mais permettant de relever de faon juste les armes avant darriver au final, de grande classe, trs long o le cognac se marie de faon somptueuse au caf pour une alliance, classieuse, riche et intense. Lquilibre sucre, alcool (8,8 % Abv) malt et houblon est simplement parfait. Une stout que tout zythologue doit avoir dgust. Ce lion est dune grande classe.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2017 Bottle33. Trs black avec mousse beige crmeuse et collant au verre. Nez cacao, liquorice, caf, fruits, vanille. Bouche trs douce au caf crme mais aussi amer, au chocolat noir, aux fruits confits (figue ?), au fum de bon aloi. Trs bonne stout car quilibre : on ne sent pas lalcool (tout de mme 9 %) ni les sucres bien intgrs dans lensemble. Super Lion !
