Choice barley grain is slow roasted to produce a rich dark brew. A unique blend of hops adds a touch of bitterness and a special yeast fixes the unmistakable flavor and creamy head.
Also comes in a license brewed version by Tanzania Breweries, Pabod Breweries in Nigeria and in Vietnam by SAB’s subsidiary in Da Nang.

Taste: Sweet roasted grain, cocoa, bitterness/astringent, caramel, medium-light bitterness, some pear, Palate: medium-full body, fine/soft carbonation, Overall: An enjoyable stout.
