probably the best bottled beer I tried in Korea - but that isn’t saying much. Ignoring the fact that it’s mis-labelled as stout, this is a reasonable brown beer, slightly too sweet for my taste, but after the rest of the Hite range it came as a positive relief.

ALLOVATE (2726) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 26, 2015
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)

Erzengel (6248) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAY 21, 2015
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.

R4N5H (463) - SINGAPORE - APR 25, 2015
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.

Luvystypotables (1234) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - APR 15, 2015
Aroma of malt and molasses, pours a dark brown color with a lasting tan foamy head modest lacing. Sweet taste of molasses and malt full bodies with a sickly sweet malt after taste.

poisoneddwarf (2025) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - MAR 4, 2015
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.

Rammer (372) - Moscow, RUSSIA - FEB 4, 2015
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

douglas88 (7588) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle from a Korean supermarket. Pours a dark brown color with a small white head. A light nutty nose. The flavor is fine: cola, brown malts, nutty, some sweet chocolates. Pretty drinkable. More of a brown ale.
