A full flavoured, full bodied, old fashioned London style porter. At 50p a can, this beer is a plesent surprise for a Londoner marooned in China. Pleasant, drinkable and full of character. Don’t expect much of a head though. One word of warning, the untrained pallet probably wont appreciate this little Chinese gem, only buy in bulk if you like a nice porter.

Can 50 cl. Courtesy of my cousin Martin. Pours a dark brown with an orange hue with a rough beige head. Sweet roast in the nose with a little vanilla. Medium body, sweet roast and vanilla with a lightly metallic touch. A little licorice too and a not overly clean malt bill. Hardly any bitterness. But decently drinkable. 230511

ALLOVATE (2475) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2012
Cola beer in appearance; brownish black with good clarity and moderate carbonation. Holds a decent, loose and rocky tannish crown for the length. Caramel, diacetyl, cocoa butter and just a little charred wood on the aroma. Similar in taste. Very sweet, packed with caramel and butterscotch with funky notes of seaweed, burnt toast, earthy mushrooms, dust and cellar must. Frothy and foamy in mouthfeel. Long linger, good presence but not altogether the best tasting of beers. My only Stout for my China trip and it was a little ho-hum. Still made a change from all the pale lagers!! (50cL can, BB 15/11/12, off-license near Chuansha, Shanghai, China)

Lots of chocolate with some roasted sharpness, low carbonation and very low foam/head retention. A nice alternative to the industrial piss water lager beers in China. Cheap as chips too!

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2011
Can. A deep red beer with a fast disappearing brown head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and nuts. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, butterscotch, and nuts, leading to a bitter finish. The body is light. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.
