Jamedra (754) - Hostivice, - OCT 21, 2013
Láhev 330 ml. Aroma je silně znát po alkoholu s nádechem třešní. Pěna je vysoká, tmavší moccacino barvy, jemná a držící. Barva samotného piva je temná rubínová. Chuť má mocný alkoholový nádech, docela bijí ostatní chutě a nedovoluje jim rozvinutí, také zanechává nepříliš příjemný ocas.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2017 Arômes torréfiés de café. Pas de mousse ni de bulles. Un goût prononcé de torréfaction avec un arrière goût de réglisse.

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

From Saveur Biere. In Teku glass. Watching Broken Mirror 3x04. With cured pork loin. Roasted, sweet with chocolate and some plums. A bit metallic and alcoholic but that add its some character instead of being a letdown

Schöner Cappuccino-Schaum, in der Nase malzig, röstig. Im Trunk angenehm schokoladig, bittersüß, hinten kommt die Röstung durch, nicht zu schwer, 1 A.

From Mar 2007 Pours from 625ml bottle(room temp) a pitch black with a pretty large head of foam that shrinks slowly and then completely dissipates. There's some lacing present with each new pour but that too disappears after sitting in the glass for a while. The smell is of roasted malt but it's pretty light. Not much going on for me as far as the nose goes. The taste has coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and...right near the finish, a hot cocoa flavour but they are all on the light side and make for a very smooth brew overall; I can't believe it's 8%abv, it's *that* smooth and easy drinking but I know better than to think that the alcohol won't catch up to me so I'm only taking small sips. Further sips and and nothing really changes. I note that the body on this one is on the thin side though the taste never does lean towards the watery side. It's good. I'm glad I got to try it but...it's not something I'd seek out again.

625ml bottle at home. Dark nearly black pour with a thin tan head. Lots of dark, roasted aromas. Flavors are roasted malt, smoky dark chocolate, burnt sugar, molasses, caramel sweetness. Nice full body, lingering, heavy roast finish. Confess I was not expecting this - top notch, excellent stout.

33cl bottle at home. Appearance: black with medium beige head. Aroma: roasted malts, chocolate, toffee and caramel, hint of vanilla and a trace of sawdust in the back. Taste: pretty high sweetness and medium bitterness. Notes of coffee, toffee, caramel, chocolate, trace of cinnamon and sweet spices, subtle roastiness. Palate: medium bodied, oily texture and lively carbonation. The aroma, as well as the taste, is very rich but the mouthfeel is a little on the weak side. Very pleasant!

Bottle thanks to iphone. Pours out black topped with a tan head. Nose is ash roast malts some chocolate sweetness. Taste is more of the chocolate roast malts.
