Troobie99 (60) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 12, 2002
This is the worst (unspoiled) beer I’ve ever encountered. It tastes like a non-alcoholic caramel drink (and even if it was called that instead of beer, it’d STILL be bad). It pours like thin diner coffee and sports a weak, quickly-disappearing head. Smells sickly sweet, thin and tinny, like watery molasses. I once tried ’waterchestnut drink’ in Singapore, which qualifies as worse, but it wasn’t trying to be beer. Horrible.

Canned sampler jjs in Mississauga. Much better than I expected. Would have this again

Sampled in the big metal can. Pours nice and dark black. Calls itself a stout but agree on the schwarzbier status. It drinks pretty nice. The malts leave a bit to desire but its alight.

rodenbach99 (3097) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2010
Canette de 500ml. Bière noire avec une belle mousse épaisse, nez frais, bouche tout en douceur, très bonne lager noire. (bu il y a 2 ans) 6/10

rcasta (830) - EL SALVADOR - SEP 1, 2008
12 oz bottle, pour dark red/brown forming a beige in color foamy head. Aroma of hops, malts and coffee. Flavour was fairly balance, a little more carbonated than I was expecting. Easy drinking with a somewhat bitter ending. Not bad, but not exactly exciting either.

pericles35 (24) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 7, 2007
22 oz can; dark color with a full-bodied flavor. Yet, it goes down light like a Pilsner. Impossible to find; I’ve heard stories that the brewery has it. Alas, it is almost worth teh cost of the flight to Japan.

dark clear ruby red, rich malt and floral hop aroma, rich malt flavor with a bitter finish, much more a bock than a stout

SWToxaClassico (14) - Nescopeck, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2007
Bottle: My favorite beer to drink at my favorite Sushi restaurant. Smells thick and hearty as is the taste. Dark appetizing color especially with a plate of Chirashi. Goes down smooth and is hard to say "no" to the waitress when she asks if I want more. I had this on another occasion, but is pretty expensive to buy a case where I live: about $50 bucks for a small case. I’m pretty new to describing beer, so I can’t really say much about the flavor other than it is really good and thick. Not just a chugging beer it is a good one to let linger in your mouth.

Bought in the sale section of the Orchard Park Liquor Store in Kelowna. I was reminded of salted licorice. Page 406 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 261 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

faroeviking (10293) - FAROE ISLANDS - DEC 3, 2006
Can. Dark colour with a nice average lasting off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts, hops and some coffee. The flavor is sweet with roasted malts, coffee, little chocolate ending with some bitter hoppiness. Good brew.
