The only Indian Stout known to me. Pours from a 500 ml can into a pilsner glass with a rich, dark cocoa colour and a big 2 finger head. Smells malty with a little anise. Taste is toasty with a lingering sweetness, a little dry on the palate.
One of the better Indian beers available in the market

This is the only other stout I can find in India (aside from Guinness). Brewed in India, it's a welcome relief from Kingfisher, et al.
Good black pour, not very thick or rich looking. Head develops to about 1/2 finger, off white. Smells of anise, dry cocao, stale coffee and some sweet malt. No strong aromas.
Taste is a light stout. Some coffee and chocolate, mostly roasted malt...a bit stale. More akin to S.Adams black lager.
Thin, dry though, which was a nice relief for me in India.
This is usually available at the markets along with Corona and Kingfisher. I'll buy this from now on a regular basis.
