Duffbeer (192) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2002
Was greatly disappointed by this beer. Not a very good stout in my opinion, and I like stouts. Not even close to a Guinness, or a Murphys.

Sampled @ Helsinki Beer Festival 2004
Black, pretty thick brown head. A bit sweet nose with notes of fruits. Full body. Roasted flavor with notes of coffee, fruits and chocolate. Was my last rate at evening so sense of taste was allready gone.

taalhiker (190) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - OCT 30, 2008
From bottle. Part of February Dayton Beer Tasting event. Poured black with dark tan head. Aromas of coffee and chocolate followed by similar tastes. Much better than expected. Great value.

ndburns (190) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2016
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours almost black with a thick foamy tan head. Aroma of fresh bread, molasses, dried fruit. Taste is similar, some coffee notes, very sweet up front but balanced with some bitterness.

Vanz (189) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 11, 2014
Not a fan at all, not a very well balanced beer. Not very much hop character to balance the sweetness, a lot of alcoholic flavours dominating.

FatTony (188) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - FEB 13, 2011
11.2 ounce bottle- poured out an opaque, shiny black with a thick foam head. Aroma was burned wood and toasted malts. Excellent pallet, smooth and mouth-filling. Taste was everything one could expect from a world class stout. Smokey, with a wash of toast, a slight alcohol tang at the finish kept this fine beer from a truly stratospheric score. Sri Lanka? Who knew?

xs2500 (187) - Mississippi, USA - JAN 18, 2011
Pours an ultra rich dark black with a thick chocolate color head. Flavor is complex with hints of Carmel and toffee. This is a definitely a most for any stout fan.
