Sitting in my hotel room here in Colombo

A - pours an oily thick ebony colour. Nice creamy tanned head that retains well

S - heaps of toffee, coffee and vanilla

T - up front some nice vanilla flavours, followed by some caramel and toffee. Espresso finish.

M - full body and low carbonation. Impressive

O - well you don't expect great stouts to come from Sri Lanka but this is a great stout. Full of flavour,body and balance. One of those really nice surprises that you get every once in a while.
