Canned. Clear dark golden colour with small white head, that disappear quickly. It’s kinda strange colour for stout, as I expected something dark with brown head. Weak aroma of caramel, brown sugar and alcohol. Taste is moderate bitter with some fruity notes and noticable alcohol presence.

Can alongside the others at Vystaviste. Shocking brews. This one came out Cola coloured. Aroma of chocolate, brown sugar and booze. Flavour is quite rich. Sweetness, alcohol, chocolate and fizz. Not totally rank it has to be said. What is this range all about though? 500ml cans of rocket fuel for the discerning drunkard.

The_Osprey (3507) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2014
500ml can BB Dec 2014. Dark reddy cola brown, big foamy head settles quickly. Aroma is yeasty, metallic, smoke and a general sense of pub. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is thin, malty, molasses, soft toffee, more like a bock than a stout. Not the best. Average at best.

Dark brown, little head. A watered down version of a stout, malts, coffee notes, but all quite well hidden beneath a watery taste. How would a friend put it "It’s like a stout, only different" ;-)

Pours black. Aroma and taste are roasted malts. Very light bodied, almost watery taste.

jgb9348 (5126) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Deep dark brown coloured body with a thinnish light brown head. Aroma of rich chocolate, roasted malt, light coffee, earth and a decent amount of toffee and carmelised sugars. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong roasty flavour at first with the earthy malt coming soon and then the caramel soon after, which somehow makes for a nice opening. Aftertaste shows more of a stout character with the roasted malt mellowed out by some chocolate and earth, but also of course some of the alcohol. Overall, a surprisingly decent beer - I was afraid at first, since some of their other beers are barely drinkable, but this one is actually remarkably decent - plus the cost is extremely right. I sampled this 50 cL can purchased from City’Super in Harbour City, Kowloon, Hong Kong for just a measly HK$8,50 sampled in my hotel here in Wan Chai, Hong Kong on 03-July-2014.

Very clear light brown in color. Slight hops and alcohol aroma. Caramel and dried fruit flavors with a dry finish. Overall a decent brew. Thanks to BarZigKin for sharing!

Clear, deep copper brown colour; Very thin head and beige foam which faded in 20 seconds; No lacing and minimal carbonation; Light body, with strong aroma of roast malt, light chocolate, light caramel, and booze as it gets warmer; Watery palate, with strong taste of roast malt, coffee, caramel and grass; Obvious but quite subdued sweetness, much better than the high abv malt liquors from the same brand. Alcohol taste is quite well hidden, and a 500 ml serving do pack a punch eventually; Hop bitterness is minimal and has no finish. Very easy to mouth, slight dry after taste.

Comments: finally I can breathe a sign of belief that this “Bear Bear” series actually has something drinkable other than those awful 10% and 12% malt liquors. This beer is a cross between foreign stout and Baltic porter, with its taste firmly based in stronger lager a la Carlsberg Special Brew but thankfully without going overboard. Quality is barely decent and drinkable. Still not a bad choice if you are on a budget.

Lighter-bodied stout. Nutty nose. Flimsy head added nothing to the beer. Well balanced taste. In Vietnam, this is an amazing beer, but most anywhere else, I’d reach for something else. At 8% and half a liter it packs a punch.
