Served from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Poured almost black with about a two finger brown creamy head.

Smell: Smells of chocolate and roasted malted dominated. Also a slight hint of hops were present.

Taste: Chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. The beer got sweeter as it warmed. There was also a slight hop bitterness that was present.

Mouthfeel: Medium to thick Mouthfeel with the right amount of carbonation.

Drinkability: At 8% ABV I could have a couple of these in a sitting but not a session beer.

This was a good stout and my first brew from the Lion Brewery. I did not know what to except but enjoyed it a lot.

A: Pours a dark black color, no light, only a faint brown twinge to it. Provides a two finger brown head.

S: Lots of burnt and roasted malts. Espresso/coffe and cocoa are the most predominant scents, with some dried fruit.

T: Just like the scents. The cocoa hits up front followed by some very faint dry fruit. The backend provides the coffee. The coffee is the backbone of this beer.

M: A decent about of carbonation, just about the right amount.

D: A really nice Stout. A moderate ABV makes this beer enjoyable.
