Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle, from a Durban area store. Pours thin and fizzy, and whatever head there is, vanishes to leave a flat brew with only a few signs of bubbly life. The aroma is oddly dirty, like--dirt, soil, even mold. It’s not as unpleasant as it sounds, it’s just not smells normally associated with even an unusual beer. The flavors are 180 degrees turnabout with some nice dark caramel and toffee flavors as well as some light chocolate. Thin but drinkable, and leagues ahead of the Laurentina pale.

Manslow (595) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 20, 2015
Butelka 0,5l wypita w Mozambiku w 2010r. Kolor ciemny, piana brązowa nietrwała. Aromat, palony słód w tle suszone śliwki, średnio nagazowane. Smak słod, suszone śliwki.Wytrawne raczej. Ogólnie dobre.

johnnnniee (3161) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle smuggled back for me, thanks for the opportunity Tony! Pours a solid dark brown with a smallish quickly dissipating off white head. Smells heavy on the caramel and burnt sugars. Light fruity aromas and little to no hop. The flavor is rich caramel and earthy burnt sugars with a touch of mineral. Spirited carbonation gives a spritzy bubbly mouthfeel. Well it doesn’t suck, but the caramel seems a bit overbearing and artificial.

olliejobbins (1525) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2014
best beer I had whilst in southern Africa (before the days when i’d seek out microbrews). quite a dark pour with dark head. bitter, nutty taste with a thin mouth feel. not at all strong and very drinkable in the heat.

bbertels (263) - NORWAY - NOV 17, 2014
Bottle at Troyeville hotel, Johannesburg. Pours like a stout and has a white to light brown head. Beautiful aromas of burnt toast, dark malts, some fruit. A nice, round somewhat dry (but not cardboard!) taste. A nice aftertaste. An African classic!

Pours dark with tan head. Slight caramel nose. Good carbonation. Medium light mouthfeel. Slightly sweet roasted malt and caramel. Drinkable

aleksander9 (957) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 3, 2014
Pours black with nice tan head. Aroma is old gym socks, roasted malt and chocolate. Creamy palate. Aftertaste is chocolate, roasted malt and lingering roasted and noble hop finish. Overall: What a surprising beer. Nice roasted and chocolate tones for a mass produced beer. No best before date might be the reason for the old gym socks in the aroma.

DesertDevil (673) - Arizona, USA - JUN 11, 2014
12-oz. bottle. Odd malty aroma of stale caramel malt, Worcester sauce, and a touch of old malt vinegar. Pours the color of cola with reddish-amber highlights and no head. Light spices (allspice, cardamom?) on the taste with date sugar, moldy cardboard, and cracked wheat crackers. There’s no detectable hop bitterness at all. Relatively light body. It’s pretty apparent this bottle has some oxidation issues, but the beer was better than anticipated (though I must admit my expectations were pretty low).

Splitenz (338) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2014
A surprisingly complex darker beer from Mozambique. This beer has apparently survived years of war, as it stems from the colonial days. In as such, quite an achievement. I drank this a few times in South Africa, and found it the equal if not superior to most RSA beers (not however the Namibian beers who towered over them all).

WhoU (121) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle Cape Town. Pours very dark marmite with small fading head and medium carbination. Aroma is toffee molasses coffee and chocolate cacoa rum. Taste is sweet syrup. Mouthfeel is syrupy. Overall not bad at all.

AtronSeige (1038) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - AUG 3, 2013
Aroma: Cacao, coffee, stewed fruit, burnt toffee, Appearance: Very dark, appears black but hues of red. Light brown, thin head that dies away completely, good lacing. Taste: Cacao, dry, dark malt, astringency, dried plum/raisin, very crisp. Palate: Highly carbonated, strong carbonation string, medium body Overall: A really nice beer. The bite is too strong, but it dies away, leaving a more enjoyable beer. I could have too many of these! 330 ml bottle, poured.
