Erzengel (7925) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 30, 2016
Slightly sourish beginning. Intense grainy with nice malty sticky body. Easy to drink with a nice and full body. Great stuff for 5.5%.

Pyobon (1314) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 28, 2015
(Can) Looks like they have dropped the ABV again - mine says 5.5%. Black with rather short lived tan head. Aroma of dark roast malt, chocolate and seaweed. Medium body with plenty of carbonation. Pleasantly sweet to start with notes of dark chocolate, bitterness steadily develops for a long finish. Pleasant but not exceptional.

anstei (1234) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 22, 2015
640ml bottle. Pours black with a big head, less dense than the original Guinness, but still sticky. Slight roast notes in the aroma. Taste of liquorice and burnt chocolate, bitter. Unsatisfying finish for this rather big taste.

Cantabrian (990) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 20, 2014
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.
