So, The Google is rather unhelpful with finding an AG reciped for a Lion Stout clone. I believe Lion is a Foreign Extra Stout. Good notes of coffee and chocolate, low on hopiness, slightly sour, slightly sweet, and does not have the character that SWMBO calls "stinky foot beer" that might otherwise be called "excessive dryness." My favorite stout by a long shot.

Does anybody have a clone repice or has a recipe for something similar? Or even hints about what kind of grains I might aim for?

I'm looking to lay up a few gallons of something dark and nourishing for the winter ...

There has not been any "official" clones of it yet. That's why google is unhelpful and believe me I spent a couple weeks searching....

Though I've been working on one.

I was reading some descriptions. Does licorice stand out much in the original? I am going to try to find some but am not a big licorice fan.

I'm not either and never picked up on it...It's not an active ingredient in it. But I never even noted anything even slightly liccorice like in it.

Thanks Revvy. Good to know. I hope I can find some. I'm in the mood for a good stout.

I'm just finishing a bottle of this now. I cannot place the fruitiness. I'm not so sure I taste licorice, though. If it's in there; and it could be; it's very subtle. Something almost taste prune-like. Since it's from Sri Lanka, I wonder if they use tamarinds.

The bottle description says "a chocolatey, mocha character". I can see that. There's something in there giving it a very slight "zing", though. Could it be that it goes a little "sour" with natural yeasts?

loneoak has pretty much nailed the description.

This is an extract I came up with using several other versions found online. It turned out pretty good. The date syrup is hard to find.
