2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from a 7/11 in Kl. It pours black with a thick beige head. The nose is bitter-sweet, roasty, acidity, cheap coffee, scorched earth and rubbing alcohol. The taste is bitter, earth, harsh roast, light burnt notes, some acidity, astringent notes, peppery spice and instant coffee with a drying finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Canít say Iím a fan. A bit acidic and astringent.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Iíve had each type of this beer - from Mainland China to Malaysia and now after drinking it many times - a rating for the Hong Kong version, which Iím drinking right now. Deep dark brown coloured body a thin tan head. Aroma of vanilla, raisins, cola, light coffee and a bunch of roasted malts with hints of alcohol and earth. Medium-bodied; Strong roasty flavour at first with a lot of pit fruits and prune flavour right behind. Aftertaste shows some light coffee, but more prune, raisin and pit fruit flavours than anything else with hints of vanilla and tobacco at the end. Overall, a nice beer that is perhaps a bit thin and one-dimensional, but not a bad offering considering the other beers associated with this side of the world. That said, I largely prefer the Singapore and Indonesian versions of this beer (luckily iíll be having both in the upcoming days) compared to this one. I sampled this 330 mL can purchased from a 7-11 here in Wan Chai, Hong Kong on 21-June-2014 for HK$11,20 sampled a few minutes later in my hotel room here on the Island.

A good stout.
very dark with a malty nutty aroma.
notes of chocolate and coffee. pleasant balance of bitter and sweet notes.
I think a goof pils or weizen may be more enjoyable in the Malaysian weather

From the notebook:
Can at the KL airport. Itís black. More complex than "regular" US guinness. Not bad on the whole. Certainly fine for pissing away time at the LCCT.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
My 8th Guinness. Dark brown with a tan, think lasting, nice lacy head. Smells like a malt drink. Liquorish, fudge and syrup. Sweet at first with soft roast and malt and caramel, with a malt drink liquorish finish. Tastes like Malta with a bit of bitterness. Little roast. Worst Guinness Iíve had so far.
