CacheManyHose (531) - HONG KONG - APR 16, 2016
Had at Orange Peel during drumming gig. Smells of heavy burnt malt, plum and preserved fruit, slightly herbal and some biscotti and booze. Taste is burnt malt, more bitter than the nose. Body is bitter, watery, lightly smoky and sour. A bit acidic but not bad considering.

HKdIPA (611) - HONG KONG - APR 16, 2016
Tap at Orange Peel for Steph's drumming. Black pour with big foamy tan head. Aroma is malty dark lager. Taste too - surprisingly rich and malty. Sort of metallic bitter lager taste underneath but not too much. Smooth palate but not heavy. Nice - way more interesting than regular San Miguel.

Eructoblaster (3605) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 13, 2016
Bottle - 330ml. Pours a dark brown body with an average beige foamy head. Malty aroma with liquorice and molasses hints. Its decent malty/hoppy taste carries woody, roasted cereals, and liquorice notes. Ends with a short roasty finish. Drinkable.

Very nice foam, roasty and toasted. I like the color. Very dark brown black, with a coffee like foam. Taste is wonderful, bitter more than sweet. Full bodied and creamy. It is probably one of the best tasting dark beer I ever tried.

Darkmagus82 (2180) - - NOV 28, 2015
Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a very dark brown, nearly black color with a tiny fizzy head of cream colored foam. The head fades almost instantly, leaving just a trace of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is strongest of a roasted malt smell mixed with a bit of chocolate and smoke. Along with these aromas comes a little bit of grain and a hint of dark fruit. Taste – The taste begins with a mix of a roasted malt taste and a bit of a molasses and chocolate sweetness. As the taste moves on the roast seems to fade a little bit with more sweetness of molasses, chocolate, and some corn syrup coming to the tongue. With a little bit of a smoke and toast developing at the very end, a moderately sweet, but easy drinking darker taste is left on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the slightly thinner and crisper side with a carbonation level that is rather average. For the abv. and lager style the slightly thinner body was rather nice, but for the darker flavors of the brew a little less carbonation and thicker body may have been slightly more appropriate. Overall, the feel was rather decent. Overall – A decent dark lager, but nothing all that out of the ordinary. Just alright overall.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2015 Pours a dark brown color. Looks like cola. About one finger beige head. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. Swirling it around won’t make it form again. No lacing.

Aroma is dark roasted malts, maybe even slightly burnt. I smell a little chocolate and some caramel. Smells pretty good actually.

Okay I don’t know what went wrong. The taste is burnt brown sugar to the point that it’s almost chemical like. I also taste the dark roasted malts, and some caramel. But that taste....

Mouthfeel is not so good. Chemical burn. Maybe it’s the alcohol in it. At only 5% it shouldn’t be tasting like it does. Drinkability is poor, I don’t want to finish it.

Overall, this is pretty bad. I’m being super generous with my rating. Forget it, order Bud Light instead.
