Bottled (6.0%) thanks omhper!)). Pitch black opaque colour, big brown head, leaves lace. Aroma is smoothly roasted malt with some maize in it. Flavour is coffee, roasted malts, slight smoke. In finish/aftertate there’s smooth roasted malts and raisins. Very nice beer.

jerohen (1997) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2008
Bottled from some supermarket in Hong Kong. Extremely dark coloured, lasting brown head, absolutely beautiful. Strong nose, roasted malts, chocolate. Very bitter flavour, malts, coffee and chocolate. Better than expected. I’m not sure about the style, but it seems in between a Schwarz and a Porter.

Capa (2029) - Manama, BAHRAIN - SEP 16, 2007
Enjoyed on the Yokohama subway. Dark brown in color. Tons of molasses, malts, coffee, anise, nuts, and sweet dark fruits in the aroma. Decent body. Flavor is full of the molasses and roasted malts with some coffee and cocoa backing it up. Leaves you with a long bittersweet finish. Left me suprised, a very solild brew.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - JUL 22, 2008
Bottle, 6.7 %. Almost opaque brown black and beige head. Nose is bitterish dark chocolate, some coffee, spiciness, anise. Flavor is roasted bitter, strong chocolate, coffee, maybe slightly salty, anise, liqourice. I’d say this is more into porter or stout at 6.7 %. And pretty good at it. Still has the dryness of a schwarz.

Bottled, alc. 6.0%
Domestic version (thanks Per). Opaque black/very dark brown, bif creamy expresso head, lace. Light smokey and grainy nose. Toasted, coffeish, malty, medium bodied - watery background, does not show alcohol much. Bonus suprise is smokey notes in the aftertaste. Hands down the best beer from China so far!

asedzie (604) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Pours a dark, slightly translucent brown. Thick, lasting khaki head with lacing down the sides of the glass. Carmel aroma, along with some nuttiness. Palate is very full, like a mouth full of musky dried fruit. Alcohol is noticeable, prickly. A cloying candy sweetness throughout. Smokiness, tar, oiliness. Finishes bitter, and a little lifeless considering the gamut of flavors it went through. Really wild for a proletariat beer.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - FEB 15, 2006
Sampled along my great buddy, Jeremy in Shanghai. Malty, flavorful representation of one of China’s few dark beers. Slight smokiness, alright beer.

bikesandbeers (547) - san diego, California, USA - NOV 2, 2005
The onlything I found in chinatown that was’t a pale lager, so it points for that. Pours a nice dark brwon with a medium beige head. Aroma of burnt malt. Flavor starts very sweet and finishes bitter and salty, almost llike soy sauce. Its unique for China, but there are much better beers in the world.
