2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can, 320ml, 8% ABV, brewed by Carlsberg Malaysia. Light black colour with no head. A slight malt aroma. Flavour has malt and cocoa but is generally lacking. Moderate carbonation with a thin mouthfeel. Alcohol not especially evident. This is OK but I won’t be buying it again.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was okay. The flavor seemed a bit sweeter and off from a stout, but was decent enough. Nothing memorable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can (8.0% Malaysia). Very dark brown - almost black, average and mostly diminishing light brown head. Moderate to full, malty and sugary sweetish aroma, some caramel and coffee with faint - light roasted malt. Body is medium, malty and sugary sweetish flavor, light - some caramel and faint roasted malt, light - some coffee. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, light - some caramel with faint roasted malt, light -some chocolate, faint hoppyness and alcohol. Caramel/sugary sweetish porter - could use more bitterness. Way too sweet for me.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Glostrup 3/1-2016. 33 cl bottle at Cafe Dalle Valle. Pours opaque dark brown with small beige head. Disappears fairly fast leaving only patches of foam. Aroma is of roasted malts, raisins, nuts, brown sugar and something a little chemical like glue. Low carbonation and sticky thick palate.
Taste is quite sweet and sugary. Dried fruits, roasted malts and a little metallic alcohol. Medium coffee bitterness in aftertaste. Not bad for a Royal but a little unbalanced to the sweet side for my tastebuds.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Warm, bitter, with a hint of underlying fruitiness. Smells both fruity, and a bit boozy. Very thin head. Surpisingly light-bodied,but still all in all a decent stout.
