Can, 320ml, 5.5% ABV, brewed by Heineken Malaysia. Black colour with a small head. Aroma of toasted malt. Flavour is burnt malt with some hop notes. Some treacle sweetness. A watery note but alcohol somehow evident despite the low ABV. Not bad but not very special.

Malaysian anniversary bottle version, thanks for the long haul & Dispatch aus dem Norden Cantabrian! - Shared@oldmanriver’s. - Bref: sweet export mix that resembles in nothing the frothy black stuff from dear dirty Dumplin, - but still tops the alcoholic Belgian Export Version! - Charred malts, brown sugar, burnt toast, deep cheap caramels, bitters going on burnt chicory root. Good body for the abv.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaske (thanks, Cimbasso!) delt med Ovesen: brunsvart med tett og højt skum som varer het til bunns. Deilig kirsebæraroma med røstet malt og litt kaffe. Smaken er faktisk i den søtlige retning, hvor kirsebærinntrykket av en eller annen grunn dominerer. Uventet i en Guinness. Men med en tørr, stoutaktig avslutning.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Very dark brown, average and mostly diminishing light brown head. Moderate to full, malty and sugary sweetish aroma, light - some caramel and light berry fruitiness and faint roasted malt, light coffee. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, light caramel and faint roasted malt, light coffee, faint hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, light berry fruitiness, light caramel and roasted malt with light coffee faint hoppness and alcohol. Way too sweet stout for me - could really use some bitterness.
