GoufCustom (620) - HONG KONG - JAN 16, 2014


360 ml bottle bought at YATA in Grand Century Place, Mong Kok.

Clear Cola blackish brown colour with dark brown yeast sediments; Half finger head with beige foam which lasts for 30 seconds; Very good sticky lacing with near zero carbonation; Quite fragrant sweet aroma of roast malt, with coffee, cream, chocolate, vanilla, light ash, sugar and light grass; Light sweet taste of roasted dark malt, with very potent ash and smokiness, roasted nuts, burnt toffee, burnt toast, faint dark chocolate, light soy sauce, liquorices, bitter lime and grass; Light body, thin and slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is very roasty and smoky as if downing from an ashtray. Very good maltiness. Salty, good burnt toast and almost no sweetness, I like it! Hoppiness is light grass nose, good lime and grassy hop taste. Liquorices is light but right on for some astringent and growing low bitter finish; Pretty dry after taste, very roasty and a bit salty to mouth.

Comments: This one is somewhat low in chocolaty and coffee characters, but it has a good lean body, very roasty and smoky, dryness and saltiness make for a dynamic and tasty session. Lovely!

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - APR 7, 2008
Bottle from Tanakaya. Yep, it’s a stout all right. Not oatmeal sweet. Not dry like Guinness. Very nicely done. Unlike a Yebisu "Stout", Baird’s really IS a stout. Quite bitter in the finish.

omhper (18970) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2009
Draught at Baird Naka-Meguro Taproom. Almost black. Gently roasy coffee aroma. Dry and creamy, drinks like a Guinness but with way more substance and life. Ligh coffee flavour. Finishes with salty bitterness. A pleasant easy going stout.

presario (4536) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 6, 2011
Bottle. Very dark brown with thick brown head. Strong dark malt scent with something else; possibly intentional sourness or house yeast. Sweet cocoa with a slightly off finish and more chocolate in the aftertaste.

maekchu (1772) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 29, 2012
Bottle (gift from Neko-chan). Smooth chocolate roastiness with some coffee notes. Dark brown with a 1-cm light beige head. Creamy mild chocolate flavor. Pretty consistent from initial to finish, without much development in flavors. Thin-medium body. Had this years ago, and it wasn’t nearly this good. A very pleasant mild stout.

HenryXXX (201) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2012
Pours a black with a beige head that fades quickly. The nose has bitter chocolate, and a fig and anis bread. The pallet is very light and smooth. The Flavors are roasted malts, copper penny/minerally and finishes very light with a bit of hoppy lingering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
