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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Big thanks to TheBeerCellar2 for this one. Smells very fruity and a bit metallic. Taste was delicious, notes of coffee, caramel, vanilla, and molasses. All of this on a very gentle, medium mouthfeel, which I found pleasing. Enjoyed this a lot, wish I could get it where I live.
