LION BREWERY (CEYLON) LION STOUT

Lion Stout. My first beer from Sri Lanka. You’d think a stout would not be the first beverage of choice for a country with such a warm climate. However, on the bottle it explains stout is a great match for the strong chilli flavours of Sri Lankian cuisine.

Brewed with British, Czech and Danish malts, Styrian hops and an English yeast strain it’s a relatively potent 8.8% ABV.

Very dark brown with a light brown head. Nice dark chocolate aroma. The Mouthfeel is a little thinner than expected for a stout. Medium body and low carbonation. Dark chocolate flavour with moderately sweet boozy aftertaste. It doesn’t taste overly boozy but it has that sweetness high ABV beers often have. 

Not the hairs on your chest style stout I was expecting but not too shabby either. I may have to revisit it again in the future as it gets a good wrap in many other beer reviews. It could have been a dud bottle.

 

6/10
