This is my first beer from Indonesia, Bali. 330 ml bottle. Very dark in colour. Nice chocolate aroma. Flavour is mild, with hints of chocolate and coffee. A nice beer.

Actually I couldnít find this beer, or any by Storm. Told by one outlet (TJs Mexican) that it sold well, but they were no longer producing due to licensing/government issues. Hard Rock was also sold out of it.

Sigmund (4956) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 5, 2012
330 ml bottle, as Storm Beer Iron Stout, in Bali. ABV is 5%. Black colour, moderate tan head. Moderate but nice roasty aroma, notes of coffee, hints of dark chocolate. Relatively light bodied. Medium dry flavour, distinct roasty notes of coffee, again with hints of dark chocolate. Fairly decent beer.

skoisirius (1580) - Earth, Washington, USA - APR 16, 2011
Nice and light mild stout. Light coffee, light milk chocolate, and a very tender semi-sweet bitter finish. Good stuff. Also the hardest of the Storm brews to find on Bali. Nice treat though when itís an epic rain storm out!!!

The high level of carbonation made this beer almost tasteless. It could have been soda water for all I knew. However, after putting down the glass in disgust and leaving it to warm up and fizz down out came some real flavour of chocolate and coffee with only a mild after taste. Unsuited to chilling and over carbonated. Other than that, not too bad and would drink again.

beernbourbon (1288) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 23, 2010
Bottle in Bali. Pour is dark clear brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is light roasted malt, light brown sugar, and a light crisp hop character. Flavor is also light malty and light caramel with hints of crisp hoppiness in the finish. Very drinkable stout for the tropics with a nice malty character.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 20, 2009
Thanks to TexasJeep for this beer. Black pour with small brown head. Nose of roasted malts with hops lingering in the backgroudn. Some roasted malts wtih lacto-sweetness as well. Not to bad of a flavor, and a bit of an ashy finish.

TheJollyOne (230) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 15, 2009
Fizzy light brown head over a black body. Sweet roasted malt, but hop presence as well. Taste reminded me of the Storm Golden Ale strangely enough. Early hop bite, but a late charcoal finish. Not that bad. Palate was quite thin and fizzy, further confusing me as to the brewers intent. A quirky brew that doesnt fit the style very well. No one is in Bali for a soothing quality beer, they need to keep it light for the bingers.
