djd07 (13660) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2009
Bottle as shown. Pours a dark brown with a medium creamy light tan head that lasts awhile. Good sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a roasted malt with coffee and dark chocolate. The taste is a very rich roasted malt with chocolate and caramel. Easy to drink as it hides the alcohol well. A very good stout from Lion.

BeerandBlues2 (12835) - Escondido, California, USA - JUL 25, 2005
Bottle. Pours opaque with a small bit of dark brown at the bottom of the glass with a tall frothy tan head, quite fizzy. Ends with excellent spotty lacing. Dark roasted caramel malt and toffee initial aromas with a big coffee push and some vanilla notes. Faint floral hop, raisins, neat the end. Flavor is dark chocolate and coffee with a hoppy body(fruit) and dark molasses and alcohol lingering. Full bodied and dark, somewhat dry and astringent.

Dogbrick (12587) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 4, 2006
This brew is black with a thick and rocky tan head that fizzes away rather quickly. Thick patches of lacing. The aroma is big on roasted malt, with some semi-sweet chocolate in the background. Rich body with a tasty blend of mocha, malt and plum flavors. Frankly I am surprised they make them this good in Sri Lanka. The finish is dry and roasty, with a coffee aftertaste. Proof you cant judge a book by the cover.

Bov (12543) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 28, 2002
dark black colour, creamy dark head which quickly disappears; complex aroma of black chocolate, plum and raisins, tart, some acidity, lot of character, nice bitter and slightly fruity finish
