Wow! this brew was great. Full-bodied but not too heavy. Tastes like a smooth chocolate coffee. You wont even taste the alcohol

sstackho (249) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2008
12oz bottle purchased from Danforth and Broadview LCBO in Toronto. I just had a 500mL Schneider Eisbock before this, so forgive me if I am in love with the world or mistype. Pours black with a small, quickly receding white head. Initial, somewhat thin, aroma of coffee. First taste is nice and richly full, with more coffee on the palate. Taste remains strong throughout. Very nice.

Bottle. Tasted alongside Obsidian Stout, one of my favorite six-pack stouts. Pours oily black. Sharp malty aroma. Slick mouthfeel. More smooth than Obsidian. Long finish, not sweet, not bitter.

Cbuk1013 (247) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUN 17, 2013
A nice intro to stouts. Hints of roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate. A bit skunky but roasted malt still present. A little thin for a stout.

lukedarock (246) - Howell, Michigan, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Smelt a lot better than I thought it would and looked equally as good, taste was balanced with the sweet chocolate and malt but with a slightly bitter ending, a refreshing stout that I would enjoy at any time for a decent price!

trayns (246) - Beverly Hills, Michigan, USA - FEB 18, 2009
Bottle. Pours black with a medium beige head. Smells is of dark chocolate, bitter coffee malts. Taste is pretty deep and complex, roasted malts, chocolate, and nice sweetness. Full body, nice palate of coffee and chocolate. Nice stout, easy to find too.

Pumpkin87 (245) - - MAR 19, 2015
Pours deep chestnut brown with thick tan head that dissipates quickly. The nose is subdued at first, but offers typical stout notes of chocolate, coffee and dark cherry. Chilled, the palate at first presents some of the chalkiness common to harsher coffee beers, but this subsides as it aerates and warms. While Lion Stout smooths out, it provides fizz and a dry, slightly bitter finish. A good stout from an unexpected location.

Has an interesting roasted plum aroma that is fairly unusual. The sweetness and alcohol are pretty apparent.

humulushound (244) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2010
Bottle at an Indian restaurant in Bloomington, Minnesota. Pours glorious black with a mocha head. Aroma is burnt caramel, coco nibs, smoke, resinous hops, coffee and a little raisin. Flavor is expresso, dry, milky, and smoky with spicy undertones - all rich, pleasing and balanced. Body is thick, creamy, full, bitter with a sweet warming finish that lasts forever. This beer was a pleasant surprise and an excellent choice for a Minnesota winter.
