Some nice roasted chocolate and toffee notes, and some light caramel present as well. Thisis actually not bad, as I was not expecting too much, but this was actually very refreshing and easy to drink.

Has a great head and mouthfeel. Some flavorful nuances show through more than in most high-alcohol stouts but my personal preference is for less sweet stouts including the most famous, Guinness. This is great for people who enjoy stout like a barleywine. One thing that's easy to forget is that this decidedly Western brew comes from .. SRI LANKA! Lion Stout gets 4 extra Overall points for being able to come in as a novice and become one of the establishment big boys.

Pours oily black - very dark & medium head. Aroma of coffee and wine. Roasted malt flavors dominate. Warming and quite smooth. Somewhat of a greasy mouthfeel.

jcalbi (380) - Medford, New Jersey, USA - FEB 10, 2002
Not a bad stout but I have to agree it is a little thin for a stout and it also suffers from a bad case of being too hyped up. Nice mocha chocolate taste.

rickgordon (3870) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2004
Bottled. Dark muddy brown. Rich aroma and flavour: Aroma: Fruits and cocoa. Flavour: Milk chocolate, coffee but a bit too swet maybe with a clean maltiness. Creamy palate.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUL 16, 2004
A nice stout, from Sri Lanka of all places. Good flavor but it has a very thin body, almost as if someone spilled about a half a lager in there. Thats not a bad thing but it makes it taste a little strange, hence the 2/5 for palate. I suppose that it gets pretty hot in Sri Lanka, so that would explain it. A hot weather stout!
