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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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~!

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!

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.

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.
