One of these fell off the back of a truck and found its way to my house. Anyway, I’ve shied away from tring beer from China for they dont seem to be two words that belong together. Anywho....Not my idea of what a swartzbier should strive to be but lets face facts ....lots of things are lost in translation. A hint of asphalt and vanilla in bland underwhleming nose that pours into a unsophisticated brown. maybe it was a bit old or still upset from falling off the truck. who knows, still better then some I’ve had and probably the best stuff comercially available from those Commies.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2004
Tasted in Toronto. Obtained from in-laws post Thailand/Hong Kong trip. Tasted in a dimple mug. Black colour, light white head almost immediately dissolves. Salty sweet aroma, over burnt caramel scent. Taste is on the bitter side, with a hint of roast malt but finishes very bitter.

Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2011
@ Qingdao beer festival. Black with nice brown head. Aroma and flavors are thin and sweet, but pretty nice. Fruity. Biitter orange with chocolate taste in finish. Thin and slightly sour. It almost wants to be a foreign stout but seems held back.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 17, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2011 Draught, multiple locations, Qingdao
Very dark brown with a thin light brown head. The aroma is caramelly with a little bit of chocolate syrup. Light caramel notes, a bit thin, almost cracker-like character.

Sampled bottled at Wei’s Pizzeria in Kunming, Yunnan

Dark chestnut colour with a huge, thick, light brown head. The aroma has a light roastiness and appetizing leafy hoppiness. The body is moderately full with rich malty flavours of nuts, dark chocolate, and light coffee. One of the finer schwarzbiers I’ve had. 8-5-8-5-17 = 4.3

Drinkable, but not preferable if there are other selections on the menu card..........
