GoufCustom (945) - HONG KONG - FEB 12, 2015

355ml can bought at Sogo Fresh Mart in Causeway Way.

Clear opague black colour; Half finger head and soapy beige foam which fades in 40 seconds; Moderate sticky lacing and barely notable slight carbonation; Quite fragrant aroma of dark malt, with strong roastyness, light black coffee, cream, caramel, strong toffee, Cola, very light chocolate, light sugar, faint lemon and light grass; Mid to light sweet taste of dark roasted malt, with roasted nuts, light smoke, strong toffee, caramel, black coffee, light toast, light cream, lime, bitter hops and pretty strong grass; Medium body. Slick and quite creamy palate; Mouth feel is full body dark malt with good nutty roast, strong sticky toffee and creaminess stand out. Fairly good black coffee and quite toasty, also moderate sweetness and backed with good hops. I like it!... Hoppiness is light lemon and fairly strong grass in nose. Lime and sharp grassy taste. Bitterness is moderate to strong, really complements the thick roasted malt and sweetness for a lasting, moderate astringent finish; Fairly dry after taste; Roasty, creamy and sweet bitter to mouth.

Comments: This is the Schwarz version of Premium Malt, so itís richer and thicker than typical Euro Schwarz or Stouts. Yet, itís really roasty, with sticky toffee nice sweetness and strong hops to state its case, and itís a very convincing one. I really like it!

Can. Pours almost black, quite watery, small, carbonated tan head. Burnt malt aroma, pretty weak. Flavour is thin-bodied, with nice chocolate malt. Not bad.

Very weak dark beer, barely any aroma and not much flavor. With the higher price tag for "premium" best to just avoid this one.

Burnt aroma with wheat. Very dark in color with some lacing. Dark malts, burnt toast, caramel, nuts and chocolate and syrup. Finish is dry but sweet. Very good beer and great in the winter. Beats all other dark beers in the 7-11 and Family mart and leaves you wanting more.

Suntory Premium Maltís Dark, 5.5%, is a schwarzbier that pours a very dark cola brown with a beige hand with lacing that clings to the sides of the glass. The nose is soft chocolate with a mild nutty bite. Fairly thin bodied, the taste is mild chocolate, a bit of nuts plus some roasty notes. Decent.

Milk chocolate, roasted malt. Quite creamy, chocolate candy, mocha, touch of cinnamon, sweet finish. Looks and smells quite attractive but overly sweet for me.

Aroma is faint wheat, black malts, and barley. Appears black with a two finger foam head. Taste is crisp black lager malts, rich toffee, pronounced caramel, chocolate, cocoa, roasted sugar syrup. Overall, syrupy and sugary with dark malt roast. Good stuff.
