COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
FES mix blended with local sorghum lager. Unlike the Nigerian, it contains no wheat and has a higher proportion of roast barley.

dfearnley (942) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle to flute a abused by TimE on his balcony through a hot Tokyo summer Dark brown, creamy and bubbly tan head. Taste is like cigarettes and malt. 7/3/3/3/2/8

TimE (3145) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 30, 2013
This beer definitely needs to be drank very cold. Tons of molasses, light bodied, sugary, not so balanced. Sweet. Lacks roastiness, not very good compares to other FES.

Theis (13373) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 29, 2013
Bottle at RBJG#2 - Grand Tasting Tim’s Place. Black - offwhite head. Burned, fatness, sourness, some milk, youghurt, dry notes, red berries, puke----- awful.

MartinT (7797) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Cane sugar, cane sugar, and more cane sugar. Then molasses, acidic fruitiness and rough cereals. A frighteningly different concoction…

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the hazy brown.
-Carbonation is relatively soft, which leaves more room for the… um… weirdness.
-Roasted malts are shy in the flavor profile.
-The fruitiness and cane sugar are overdone.

Bottle.

jonno (2290) - JAPAN - APR 8, 2013
whad the f@#$? Nose is actually interesting - very sweet, like chico babies candy. In the mouth its a horrible lager with hints of roast, rotting flesh and one of the four horsemen of the apocolypse. This is not Guinness.

sunevdj (3152) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - APR 7, 2013
Bottle at Tim’s RPJG#2. Pours a clear dark brown with a small, beige head. Sweet with lots of caramel and hints of diacetyl and milk chocolate. Oily mouthfeel. Medium to full bodied. Medium carbonation. Caramel finish.

shoulderbroken (1991) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 2, 2013

KyotoLefty (6324) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 31, 2013
Bottled. Big sugary nose, syrup. Thin black color with lace. Nasty and cloying flavor, funk ass, skung, sugar, plastic, grass. Thin and watery, but horrible wherever there is flavor. Glad to have tried it for comparison.
