Bottle pours black with a retentive brown head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt. Tastes like a sweet stout, sugary malts, a bit of coffee.

A classic in the true sense, I’ve been looking for this beer for more years than I care to remember and found it at a knock down price at a place I’d rather not frequent. Pours with a fizzy tan head, quickly diminishing to a flat & lifeless deep brown stout. Velvety mouthfeel, milk chocolate with a hint of vanilla & liquorice and a subtle bitter finish. Long lasting aftertaste and very appealing served cold or at room temperature. It may be worth noting that my samples were 7.5% & bottle conditioned.

magicmn (178) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JAN 18, 2015
Brown to light black. Light aroma of roasted malt or barley. Roasted bread and barley taste but body is too light and you can feel alochol at finish. Good for a mass beer.

12/28/05 bottle @ The Ginger Man. Poured a medium brown creamy head and a jet black color. Great malts good strong mocha flavor and nose. Very carbonated which was very surprising to me. Very crunchy and ntty from start to finish. Palate was great really held flavors roasts and malts for a good amount of time. This and Blue Point Oatmeal stout are the two bes I have had.

BleacherBum (177) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - MAY 3, 2007
This one packs some punch. Big bittersweet chocolate, roasted coffee and malty sweetness. All blending very well, with a creamy mouthfeel and light to moderate carbonation. A pleasant dry and mouth puckering finish is very welcome. This just goes down so smooth, so quick at 8% and less than $2 a bottle.....what’s not to like? A fantastic stout.

Got Stout? (173) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 24, 2001
My offering was 8%, as clearly indicated on the bottle. This offering seemed to be a Sweet Stout trying to play with the big Imperials, but getting its ass kicked. No big standout flavors or complexity, but a respectable session stout. Mildly roasty.

beerstop (173) - Roanoke, Virginia, USA - FEB 7, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2003 Roasty aroma with hints of toffee and soy sauce. Nice light brown cream head tnat had pretty good staying power. Almost black appearance. Moderately sweet, slightly bitter/salty start. Long sweet, slightly bitter finish. Medium to full body with creamy texture and soft conbination.

A première vu, le Sri Lanka n'est pas un pays réputé pour ses bières. À première vue seulement, car le célèbre Beer Hunter Michael Jackson ne s'y est pas trompé : la Lion Stout est belle et bien l'une des meilleures au monde. Brassée à partir du houblon Styrian, cette Stout ravira les amateurs de bière de caractère ! Cette bière noire présente dans le verre une robe impénétrable surmontée d'une fine mousse beige. Le nez propose une superbe complexité aromatique avec des arômes de fruits noirs, de malts torréfiés et de café. En bouche, après une attaque généreuse, nous retrouvons de très belles saveurs de café noir et de chocolat. Le final s'avère être à la fois amer et torréfié ! La Lion Brewery nous propose donc une bière qui surprendra les plus connaisseurs d'entre vous par sa finesse et son caractère. Une grande bière. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

googleimage83 (172) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2016
Pours opaque dark brown, with small coffee-coloured head that doesn’t last beyond the first few sips. Firm chocolate and butterscotch punch on the nose, some hints of cherry and grape. Taste is roasty and somewhat creamy, with some brown sugar sweetness - not getting the fruity notes as much. Leafy hop presence, finish is comparatively dry Slightly chalky mouthfeel. Solid, worthwhile stout.
