Fatehunter (1076) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Pours a thin head on a black body. The aroma is roasted malt, simple and one-sided but not bad. The taste is roasted malt with some lemon bitterness to round it out. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. It drinks more like a dark lager than a stout. Not bad.

GoufCustom (605) - HONG KONG - FEB 11, 2014


355 ml can as “Hite Black Beer Stout” bought at Market Place by Jason’s in K11, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Clear, Cola-like blackish brown colour; One -quarter finger head and light beige foam which fades in 20 seconds; Small sticky lacing and fizzy carbonation; Pungent smell of lager malt, with light nuts, faint cream, light hint of chocolate, mustiness, yeast, and very strong straw; Close to zero sweet taste of roast malt, with nuts, light black coffee, very light toffee, light cardboard, light bread, lime, light bitter hops, and very strong straw; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is somewhere between a watery macro Amber Lager and Schwarzbier. Very lager-like body, with fairly light touch of roast malt, coffee, toffee and cream. Some wet paper and bready, and the rather bugging strawy hops. Ugh… Hoppiness is very strawy nose, lime and nasty straw in taste. Extract-like bitterness came through as the beer gets warmer for a lasting, light astringent finish; Fairly dry after taste. Papery and astringent to mouth.

Comments: This one tastes much like a jacked-up macro Schwarzbier: lagery, grassy, light nuts and coffee tastes. The slightly off musty nose, wet paper taste and annoying straw hops aside, this one tastes quite okay as a Schwarz. Don’t even think of it as a Stout, or else disappointment awaits.

Salmoniform (232) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Poured from bottle to glass. Dark jet black with off white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is massive cola, malt, yeast esthers, floral notes. Mouthfeel is good due to medium-light body with above-average carbonation. Taste is malty sweet with a slight CO2 bite finish. Little bitterness and quite esthery from the yeast. Overall, this is a decent beer but nothing spectacular and quite one-dimensional.

MrChopin (2927) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 30, 2013
hazy sepia, thin white ring. Nose is thin tea, light roast, sugar balancing all. Flavor sweet with light bubblegum, wort hints all over, pretty soft overall. Thin and sticky.

330mL thanks to radagast83. Pours a clear, deep tea brown with good foam. Good lace. Nose is sugary, maple, smoke, sweet apple. Taste is roasty, ashy, chalky, dry, sweet. Palate is weak, watery, mildly tart. More of a brown ale.

Drank this once while in South-Korea in 2009. Roasty, toast, coffee, slight hint of citrus and herbs, dough, opaque dark brown, tiny head that does stick, medium sweet, toasted malt, hints of coffee and chocolate, light sourness, surprisingly light-bodied, creamy, sweetbitter finish, nice beer, kinda light version stout

MrHangover (2139) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2013
Can at Dean’s stickiest floor tasting. Pours a very dark brown beer with a very small, beige head. Very clear pour. Aroma is roasted coffee and malts and the flavor is mildly sweet and quite uninteresting. Could session this beer for it’s good drinkability and low abv, but that’s about it..
