A: Pours pitch black with a light brown head with varying bubble size.
S: Hot chocolate and smokey charred wood. Metallic.
T: Much the same as the nose. So much charred wood and burnt malt flavor, I don't think I've ever tasted this much. Ends smokey.
M: Thick and sweet at first, finishing bitter dark chocolate.
O: One of the smokiest non-smoked (or maybe it is, I'm not sure) beers I've ever had. Very nice sipper, although I doubt it's very refreshing in hot and humid Sri Lanka.

Deepest black color with a thick dark caramel head that vanishes quickly.
Aroma of licorice, creamy chocolate, vanilla and coffee.
Sweet and bold flavor with notes caramels, coffee, cocoa, spices, vanilla, roasted malts and a hint of all major hops, citrus, herbal and earthy. Dry aftertaste with a lingering spiciness challenging its sweetness.
Full body with mild carbonation. Alcohol of 8.8% is hidden behind its malty base.
Bold beer from the unexpected Sri Lanka, nice and complex regarding both malt and hops with lots of chocolate, but a tad on the sweet side which makes it a bit cloying.
