A glorious brew. Poured from 33cl bottle into a pint glass. Dark, almost black with notes of dark ceylon tea, chocolate truffles, port, and dessert spices. The mouthfeel is creamy without being syrupy allowing for the flavors to develop into a nice savory warming finish. Yum!

Dguste dans un verre Charles Quint. Temprature de dbut 7 8. Magnifique robe brun sombre opaque surmonte dune fine mousse beige assez tenace; bonne carbonatation. Nez trs dlicat sur le chocolat avec une touche vineuse(madre,vin cuit) et un soupon de levure trs agrable. Le got est fantastique et combine parfaitement les saveurs de type Chocolat/cacao/caf avec les notes fruites(prunes,figues) le tout dans une parfaite harmonie douceur/amertume. La richesse et la complexit de cette bire nous obligeront la regoter prochainement ce qui ne sera pas une pnible affaire!!! La finale est trs longue et plaisante et nous ramne toutes les flaveurs en ajoutant la chaleur apprciable dun alcool idalement intgr. Un merveilleux stout!!! 18,5/20

scottyshades (130) - Parkland, Florida, Florida, USA - SEP 20, 2012
A: Pours pitch black with a solid khaki head. Good retention with ruby highlights S: Toffee, caramel, cocoa, big roasted notes, and burnt sugar - almost brown sugar T: Burnt sugar again, bittersweet, dark fruits and berries MF/O: Pretty viscous but not on the extreme end. A nice one, especially given the $1.20 price tag

Could be one of the tastiest stouts out there. Look for a real thick dark pour, with a moderate light brown head. The taste is intensely rich in sweet malts reminiscent of mocha. Its texture is quite smooth, but bubbly. I would take my lion stout anywhere. Even on a date.

Pours black-brown, with brown head. Aromas of burnt malts, nuts, mild dark fruit. Flavors of burnt malt, nuts, raisin, chocolate, toffee, coffee and alcohol, nice bitter finish. Great taste that takes you for a ride, pretty sweet but nice finish. Very Tastey!!

d07c0m (126) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2011
Colour of black liquorice with a head the colour of milk chocolate shavings. Aroma is of a chocolate milk that has been made with 60% cocoa chocolate Light hop bitterness which is overpowered by the chocolate and coffee malt flavors which give it a sticky sweet and extremely drinkable character. Alcohol is present and warming but not too strong to lose points. Incredibly drinkable beer and goes down like bittersweet candy.

rebelbrewer (125) - Lithonia, Georgia, USA - JUN 18, 2006
330ml bottle poured into a snifter glass. Deep, deep dark brown in color an had only a small thin brown head that quickly disappeared. Chocolate, fruit and alcohol aroma. The taste is excellent, with hints of chocolate, light and dark fruit and a very faint roasted malt. It has a very creamy feel on the palate. Nice stuff.
