Review 29: Lion Stout

Review 29
Lion Stout: 8.8% abv

With a long and complex name, Lion Stout goes to a new level of originality and creativity. After finishing my sarcasm, I'd like to mention that at 8.8%, this is a very high quality stout for a VERY reasonable price. On the nose, there is chocolate, vanilla, berries, redline, grapes, and strawberries. 

The taste is grainy, with wear malt and barley all present, as well as vanilla, cherry, strawberry, cinnamon, and melon. The finish, has strawberry, cinnamon,grain, coffee, grape and vanilla. The finish is medium, and leaves more to be desired. This is one of the cheaper beers we've tried, and the intrinsic quality of this beer is amazing for that very fact. For bang for the buck, this beer ranks a 10/10. Unfortunately, there's more to it. It is still highly recommended. 

Score: 9.0/10
