Bottle. What a treat. Very dark and almost black appearance. The aroma was malty with roasted coffee and molasses. The flavor is rich and echoes the aroma. I found this in Hong Kong on the morning before my flight home. I couldn’t pass it up.

I was shocked. A dark Tsingtao. Nice creamy tan head. Black as tar. Lots of malt and almost an Imperial Stout taste to it. A very good brew but does it work with Chinese food? Who cares? Drink it by itself.
