A surprisingly good stout from SE Asia. much better than any of the other dark beers I had in the region. A touch of an alcohol taste, but not nearly as bad as the Guinness they make in Kuala Lumpur. Very smooth and even flavors, with a touch of something sweet afterwards.

A very heady slow-rising stout. The head is very thick and hoppy/stouty. This is nice. It’s pretty sweet, almost porter-like, but in an acceptably way. A very nice stout. Hand-delivered from from Thailand. thanks, mom.

oh6gdx (20869) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 19, 2006
Canned (thanks tbone_). Black colour with decent brown head. Sweet alcoholic nose with notes of roast, coffee and licorace. Also some bready notes. Flavour of wet burning wood/smoke (extremely roasted and smoky), as well as sweetish bitterness like old black coffee. Also some very dark chocolateish notes found. Finish and aftertaste is dominated by the smokishness, as well as some toffee and coffee. A sting of alcohol also while drinking it. Lovely palate also. One hell of a good beer.

Grzesiek79 (3293) - Radom, POLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Brewed and Canned in Myanmar. Puszka 0,33 z Birmy. Dobre foreign Stout o pelnej palonosci i opiekanych tostow. posmarowanych musem z pieczonych jablek. Piana o kremowej konsystencji ciemno bezowa, spora i trwala. Kolor gleboko czarny nieprzenikliwy. Tresciwe sycace. Ale nie bylo ciezkie jak sie spodziewalem. Srednio ciezkie, a alkoholu sie nie wyczuwalo. Swietna robota. Jak na piwo egzotyczne to super robota, nawet jak nie jest to Craft Brewery.

Admiral (524) - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2004
Bottle, purchased at the same place I found the Hurlimann Hexenbrau so it probably has a couple years age on it. Opaque black, abundant and dense tan head. Aroma very similar to a good port. Very full body. Quite wine-like, although with some Starbucks-evoking roast and very subtle yet pleasant hops. It should be served close to room temperature; when fresh out of the fridge it’s somewhat unnervingly metallic. This does pass quickly, though. All in all an extremely good beer.

BlindSangamon (8) - Chatham, Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2005 does not count
I had my first and only ABC 21 years ago, and I remember the flavor as if it were yesterday. To a 21-year old Midwestern boy it was like a date with an asian paramour - exotic, spicey, and adventurous. - everything American beers/girls are not. Thrilling, astringent bitterness, powerful hoppy finish, satisfying alcohol warmth. I wish I could find these locally!
