The basis is an unfermented but hopped Guinness wort extract shipped from Dublin, which is added to local pale malt ingredients and brewed locally. The Malaysian version has in recent years seen an ABV downgrade to 6.8%.

The FES currently (2010) found in Hong Kong is the Malaysian version, as is the FES found in Cambodia.

As of 2011, this is the version now found in the People’s Republic of China, which formerly had a 5% version. That version no longer exists, so Chinese FES ratings should go here.

Der gewöhnliche Klassiker, auf den ich mich aber dann doch ordentlich gefreut hatte. Das war schön schwer, mildmalzig und mit einem wunderbar würzigen Abschluss, der etwas Geröstetes, aber auch etwas Süßes an sich hatte, das einen ausgewogenen Abschluss kreierte.

Country 105 / 244 - thank you Culchiem for this bottle! The beer has got a deep black colour with a steady creamy head and medium body. Aroma of roasted malt and torf with some hints of coffee. Taste of grounded coffee, chocolate, torf, woods, malt and dark bread. Easy drinkable, solid beer.

The head is brown and ok, the body black. It smells fruity, fermented fruity, strong, bit plum. The taste is plum, alcoholic, creamy, bit coffee, sweet. Not as good as the most other Guinness beers, but drinkable.

Piw (178) - Rüsselsheim, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2015
Der höhere Alkoholgehalt gegenüber dem Original macht sich bemerkbar. Das Bier schmeckt dadurcht etwas trocken und "pelzig". Ansonsten wie das Original.

320ml can purchased in siem reap, Cambodia. Pours extremely dark, opaque black with no head. Aroma is wet socks and cardboard. Taste is metallic, lots of burnt toast and licorice in after taste but lots of wet cardboard. I really don’t like it.

Erzengel (4435) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 20, 2014
320ml can. Caramel in the nose. The beer starts smooth, fresh. Figs, dates, brown sugar. The beer is getting more deep and intense in the mainpart, not too thick, still nice drinkable without being watery. The aftertaste is long, malty-liquorice, dried plums with a nice smooth-bitter ending. Nice!
