I had it from a 320 ml can, on a Singapore airlines flight. Great to know they have stouts in such flights – and they had the ABC stout too (their “Selection of International Beers” does not go beyond the exciting frontiers of Heineken and Tiger). Unfortunately the stout was neglected, as they had not chilled it. At room temperature it was still nice, black with a very bubbly head, medium bodied and quite blunt, roasted malts, unripe coffee berries, an acidic character and a dry finish. It did feel more like a dry stout.

Decent stout, quite full bodied for a mass market beer. The raisiny flavour kind of overpowers the chocolate.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 23, 2013
Can, 32cl. 6.8% ABV. A dark brown beer, clear-looking and with a small, dense, light tan head. The aroma has a touch of cooked vegetables, but coffee grit dominates. Some chocolate and prunes. It’s quite dry on the palate, with a pleasant carbonation level. Full body. Prunes, some lightly sour berries and quite a lot of coffee in the flavor. Roasted, coffee-ish finish with prunes and a faint metallic touch. A quite decent one, but nothing impressive. 131123

Ulfborg weekend celebration of nothing in particular. Dark brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel and dried fruit. Sweet dried fruit, dark toffee and roasted flavour, with lots of prune in particular
