1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Dark brown colour. No head. Sweetness, caramel malts in aroma. Slightly bitter and watery beginning. Slight bitterness also in the middle. Slighlt bitter and weird finish. There is no particular characteristics. Very watery beer. Bad.

Dark. Light body. A rather clean malt profile with faint roasted notes. A bit of caramel malt and some cocoa. The can I had said Lager Type, which makes me think this is a schwarbier and not a stout. The flavor profile fits a schwarz, too. Decent option in a watery lager wasteland.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from a strangely set up convenience store in Tainan, Taiwan.
Cool and into a snifter. Ruby cola in body and shimmers in the lights. head holds for a good minute; a tannish inch of foam. Rusty swarf, dusty cocoa, fresh wort, blood and dark wood on the nose. Super buttery, diacetyl fueled palate. Lagered? It tastes of raw cake mix. Yeasty, bready with a good base of chocolate malt. Light carbonation and medium light bodied. Very softly spoken, with an odd lingering perfume of strawberries and cherries. Weird but drinkable. Undemanding on all counts! (33cL Bottled 03/04/15, Puro [?], Hai’an road, Tainan, Taiwan)

Can in HK as Black Beer Stout. Neutral sweetish beginning. Dry malty, no depth. Malty-watery, hints of sweetness, strange with no bitterness.

Malty with a sweet molasses flavor. Bitter-sweet after flavor. Like a sweet Guinness. Drinkable but nothing special.

500ml can at the Silverkrisflyer Lounge in Hong Kong - labelled Black Beer Stout. Almost black in colour with a thin beige head. Thin body, with aroma of malt and molasses. Roasted malt caramel flavour - close to a Guinness foreign draft. Not bad - drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.13 oz bottle. Aroma is earthy, chocolate, wet river rock, licorice, bready. Pours dark brown with a collapsing beige head that falls into a ring of big-bubbly foam. Taste is sweet, bready, licorice, slightly oxidized. Body is thin, watery. Not too bad, really.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Half lager half stout, rather closer to the Dark lager. But the taste is not nasty. Liquid course and the balance is bad, but you can drink
