beerandbeyond (673) - ISRAEL - JUN 15, 2013
355ml bottle poured into a tumbler glass. Clear dark brown with a small dark beige head. Soft roasty aromas, with some chocolate and faint earthy hops. Flavors of carob, sweet chocolate and mild coffee, with low bitterness and some roastiness. Some root vegetables after taste. Medium body with some cloying sweetness, not balanced, and quite hard to drink.

GoufCustom (795) - HONG KONG - MAY 24, 2013


330 ml pull-tap can bought at Wellcome Superstore in Sheung Shui.

Clear deep blackish brown colour; Half finger head and beige foam which last for 2 minutes; Minimal lacing and notable carbonation; Sweet aroma of light roasted malt, coffee, caramel, light chocolate, rice, and hint of grass; Pretty strong sweet taste of dark roast malt, with corn syrup, coffee, rice grains, light milk chocolate, liquorices, nuts, alcohol, hint of citrus and light grass; Med to light body, Thin and slightly creamy palate; Taste profile is an unbalanced mix of thin dark malt, sugar syrup, and strong booze. The syrupy taste overwhelms the already thin malt roastiness and nuttiness. Adding the strong booze on top, and the overall taste is really going nowhere. Bad! Hoppiness is near zero nose, slight citrus in taste, and a slight grassy bitterness so ineffective that the finish is all sweet booze; Slightly dry after taste, sweet and boozy to mouth.

Comments: This one starts out badly with sweet nose, and then its full of syrupy grainy boozy taste, with a roast malt body so thin and hoppiness so light, all the ingredients simply don’t add up, they just sitting here, laughing at me why buying this? A swill which gives foreign stout a bad name. Avoid.

fletchfighters (1056) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 11, 2013
better than I expected really. Pours dark brown, nearly black. Light brown head with spotty lacing. Medicinal, or herbal nose really. Licorice, roasted malts, coffee and some smoked meat quality. Medicinal taste and feel. Quite different when adding in a smoked meat feel. A lot more smoke than the nose leads on. Slow sipper but quite nice and a good tick.

Cantabrian (806) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 15, 2012
Bottle from a grocery store in Hong Kong. Watery, bitter - not hoppy bitter, but charred bitter. Pissy, tastes like something that cigarette butts have been tossed in. Horrible! Not sure if this is a true stout, but it’s one of the worst black beers ever.

Bottle from Hong Kong, 08/02/2012. Cola pour, creamy beige brown head sticks around. Aroma of chocolate malt, medium roast, bit of caramel, nutty. Taste is chocolate, medium roast malts with peculiar sweetness following, bitter finish. Medium palate. As others have said, surprisingly not bad.
