Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - MAY 4, 2004
Nearly opaque black with a thick frothy lasting brown head. Absolutely beautiful. Aroma of roast, molasses, vanilla, dark chocolate, and espresso. Medium thick creamy body with soft carbonation. Nice sweet flavor of roast, plum, raisin, espresso, dark chocolate, molasses, and smoke. A little alcohol comes through in the end. Excellent.

grandgenie (259) - val-des-monts, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 5, 2009
Acheté à la SAQ sur le nom de sinha stout et dégusté dans un verre de maudite. Apparence d’un noir intense avec une mousse persistante et collante. Arômes de pain grillé, d’hicory, de vanille bourbon, de caramel écossais et de sucre brun avec une touche d’olive noir et de mélasse. Un goût délicieux et équilibré, crémeux et avec du corp. Le goût est la même chose qu’olfactivement.

ewestern (257) - Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2009
Very thick tan head that leaves great lacing. Dark brown almost black in color. Nice sweet strong aroma. Malts, coffee and chocolate with something I can’t quite place. Possibly licorice. Flavor is chocolate with an undertone of coffee, not overly sweet. No malts were spared in this. Nice roasted flavor. Full bodied and smooth. Coats the mouth with a nice flavor. Little to no bitterness. Sometimes seem slightly watered down. Not very complex but great in its simplicity.

darkerdabetter (255) - Michigan, USA - MAY 26, 2004
Thick, light brown head, strong aroma of roasted chocolate, dark black, oily, slightly sweet and delicious, with a little bitterness in the finish.

2.9
bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2004
The colour is opaque black. Big bubbles build the large chocolate-coloured foam. It sinks slowly into a veil on the glass and surface of the beer. The dominating smell is sweet, burned malt. There are also notes of yeast, coffee, cocoa and a touch of juniper berries. The carbonation is pretty strong with small, almost sharp bubbles. The taste is unexpectedly mild and sweet, with a strong flavour of burned malt (caramel?). The almost toffee-like taste is replaced by a mouthfeel of alcohol and an aftertaste with hints of raisins, coffee with cream and a vegetable-like taste (cucumber?). The lasting aftertaste is almost all alcohol. I would rather call this brew “porter” than “stout”. And it is an OK stout/porter, but nothing to write home about.

Got this one under the name Sinha Stout. Dark and overly sweet coffee. A full body and lightly hopped. Nice, but that about it.
