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.

Erzengel (7888) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 30, 2014
My bottle is brewed In Ghana by Accra Brewery Ltd.
Rating from somewhere before 2008, bottle found in an African shop in Berlin
Tiefschwarz im Glas, süßlich weiche Röstmalzaromen in der Nase. Das Bier ist mild-weich, angenehm röstmalzig-schokoladig, anklänge an Kaffee. Etwas süß. Im Nachgeschmack etwas herber. Sehr schön!

markschiedon (594) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 28, 2014
Drinking from a 340ml bottle. In the aroma a sweet flowery smell and some liquorice. When it warms up also coffee and boiled milk comes up. The beer is clear, but it’s hard to tell since it’s almost solid black. It has a brown head that disappears fast. The taste is also like drinking fluid liquorice. But after the first shock of that a good milky stout comes up. A little watery maybe. Medium-low carbonated.
