Cantabrian (852) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 25, 2014
On tap at one of the downtown Harryís in Singapore (I visited four other Harryís before finding this stout, which figures on all their unitsí menus, if you check online). Unfortunately it was flat, but Iím sure it could be a great stout. Thick syrupy black, with a pungent aroma of dark soy sauce, dark chocolates and caramels, plenty of spicy kicks on the flavour, with marmite, soy sauce, molasses and liquorice sitting on a thin dark cocoa backbone. Difficult to evaluate the palate as there was hardly any head, but it is syrupy enough. Iíd make it much more of a Foreign Stout, based on its flavour profile.

Scopey (7094) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2014
Keg at Brussels Beer Cafe, KL. It pours black with a thick, creamy beige head. The nose is roasted malt, toast, cocoa acidity and general creaminess. The taste is smooth, roasty, some acidity, toast, light bitterness and coffee.....not a lot else really! Pretty drying on the finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Guinness clone for sure. Not bad, just very basic stuff.

Looks like a pint of Guinness. Aroma of roast malt, some fruity sweetness. Medium body, flavour of the aroma, some dark chocolate with a dry, bitter finish.

On draught at Brussels Beer Bar - Kuala Lumpur. pours an opaqur nlack with huge cascading tan foamy head, odd aroma and flavor component, almost "hickory" like. not chickory. otherwise light body with great creamy mouthfeel. dark malt flavot balanve with dry "heavy" finish. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

davidm (1936) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 17, 2013
On tap in KL. Enjoyable, but not too exciting. Aromas of chocolate, nuts, and roast. Taste is sweet, with average length. Palate has a creamy initial feel, but the body is thin. Black, with a frothy head.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2013 Draft at the Brussels Beer Cafe, Kuala Lumpur. Dark brown pour and a frothy head. Its a typical stout in its appearance. However, if you are expecting it to taste like a typical stout you might be surprised. Itís quite malty and light with a hint of bitterness. I found it quite refreshing actually and when served cool it seems to suit the Asian climate. I wonít be coming to Asia especially to drink this beer, but I could be tempted to order another in preference to a Guinness so I guess thatís quite a decent recommendation. Having said that, hardened fans of the black stuff would probably turn their noses up at this imposter! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

visionthing (2813) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 19, 2012
25cl on tap at Brussel Beer Cafe, KL. Black with a creamy light brown nitro head. Quite strange herbal aroma with mint dominates over the malt and caramel. Very little roasted aroma. Strange stout, herbal with a light bitterness in the finish. A bit watery. (2012-05-05)

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 17, 2009
Nitro pour. Dark brown with deep burgundy accents. Light brown nitro cream head. The aroma is toasty with chocolate malt. Chocolatey, creamy with light coffeeish notes. Low to moderate bitterness. Some acidity in the finish. Not a scintillating beer, but competes well enough with the draught Guinness.
