Sri Lanka?

Lion Stout

Citizens, this stout receives high marks. The Lion is known as the King of Beasts and Lion Stout brings honor to the table with a dark, rich complexity. Coffee and chocolate work together for an incredibly smooth flavor. Not sweet... actually a little dry. Sometimes dry beers can lose out on body when the hops overtake the malts. I have to tell you, Lion is well balanced in every way. Chocolaty but not sweet; dry but not vapid; coffe essence without bitterness. This brew is complex without being complicated.

But Sri Lanka? Seriously? I don't think I've ever eaten or drunk anything from Sri Lanka in my life. But what a way to start! I'm smitten. The alcohol isn't too evident, although it is a sophisticated adult beverage for the most discerning of palates. Bear in mind that Lion weighs in at 8% abv. Porter lovers as well as stout officianados will appreciate the richness of Lion Stout. t's a great way to get started if you have a long night ahead of you. Mellow yet assertive.
