olliejobbins (911) - Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2014
640ml bottle in Myanmar. Had this last week but I think it was 8%. Poured thick, treacle black with dark head. Aroma of coffee, molasses and burnt caramel. Thick, sticky mouth feel. Bitter and burnt caramel taste. Not terrible.

From a can. Pours black with a lasting thin tan head, pleasant roasted aroma, medium bodied with up front coffee bitterness. A pretty good beer for Cambodia.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2334) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 25, 2014
Bottle from Brian picked up in Cambodia/Chiang Mai area. 6.8% Brewed in Vientiane, Laos. Served in a snifter. A dark cola looking brown pour has a thin quickly dissipating head. The aroma is deep rich plum, figs and toffee and candied fruit. Very intense dark fruit aroma. Medium-thin bodied, possibly a bit too thin. The taste is savoury, dark fruits, then bitter dark chocolate, a touch roasty, soy and coffee grinds. Really interesting and quite a tasty stout from an unexpected part of the world~!

Cantabrian (879) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 20, 2014
I had it from a 330 ml can, on a Singapore Airlines flight. This beer was not listed on their menu. I was only offered this ABC when I asked for a second Guinness. Lovely surprise. The beer is obsidian black with an unremarkable head. Very nice aroma of chocolates, tart berries, red Chinese vinegar, soy sauce and some espresso. Flavour is a beautiful balance between malty sweetness and roasted bitterness. Not herbal, it does have it spicy, Marmite vein, with a roasted coffee finish, a medium body and a very chalky palate. Pleasant stout!

Gurthnar (2138) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 13, 2014
Can thanks to Cuso. Aroma is plain, but honest. Has real dark malts, roasted, chocolate, light capuccino. Pitch black colour, light brown head. Taste is straight-forward alcoholic, but also really roasty and bitter. After all, I like it - which comes as quite a surprise.

R4N5H (126) - SINGAPORE - SEP 1, 2014
633ml bottle, brewed in Singapore. Large, golden tan coloured head which disappears quickly. Almost black in colour. Aroma of dark chocolate. Bitter taste, chocolate, malt and coffee. A little bit thin for an imperial/foreign stout, but good anyway. Bitterness left on the palate.
