660ml : drank from a tulip . A personal favourite over the years -a big Asian community means this has been a regular for me .. Michael Jackson was endorsing this when he was alive and still does from the grave , his picture with him boosting this still sits on the back . Back in the day, I would reflect with admiration on how cool it was that a stout like this came from the sub continent , to contrast the typical pissy Asian lagers given to the world ... An its fucken good and worthy of props . Firstly its rich but not sweet or cloying , in accents of prune , raisin, vanilla , dark chocolate . This is met with roasted malts= bitter espresso , tar, burnt toast , . oily woody hops ..a bit dry on finish . Very complex . How the fuck they would drink this high boost stout in such a climate is crazy and cool . World class Tropical/Foreign stout !

11.2 z to glass,short lived small light brown head with a few legs , black in color with ample amount of floaties, even after gently opening this bottle conditioned beer.Aroma of alcohol,burnt, cherries,& chocolate.Medium mouth feel but a bit thin for a Foreign Stout, a bit sweet but not over the top, good bitter finish of average length. A good beer, just not a good Foreign.

Bottle 0.33l bought at Metro c&c Rijeka. Dark brown liquid with big tan head. Full body, light to medium carbonation. Cherry aroma. Medium sweetness, a bit alcoholy. Taste of cocoa. Reminds me of Ferrero Mon Cheri, chocolate, cherries and alcohol. Interesting.

A very nice beer indeed! Rich and complex with a subtle chocolatey finish and a mouth feel a bit like a liquor filled chocolate candy. The alcohol burn is noticeable on the palate but suits this one well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
