Tsingtao Stout Beer is a type of beer that is meant to show off the vibrant personality of its drinker. It is developed for men from 25 to 40 years of age, because they are highly perceptive and very accomplished individuals with strong personalities. Channels of distribution are bars, KTVs and night clubs.

Just like its consumers, Tsingtao Stout Beer has a unique quality and irresistible flavor which helps it secure its distinct position in the beer family.

olio (6166) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 6, 2012
355 ml bottle @ Timo A.
Pours deep dark red color with small lasting head. Aroma is quite mild with some dark malts, grain notes and a bit of sugar. Flavor of sugar, caramel, mild dark malts, dry chocolate notes and some hints of berries. Dry malty palate with a mild berryish finish. A lot better than I expected.

laiti (5653) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 6, 2012
35,5 cl bottle
Bottle neck says ”20 120218” and label ”≥6,7%”
Aroma is very light with some roastiness, cocoa and hints of smoke. Flavour is very dry and medicine‐like with licorice, dark chocolate, some spices, hints of anise and ash. Quite typical foreign stout, but a bit drier than others in this style. Better than I expected.

jgb9348 (4732) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 19, 2012
Deep dark brown coloured body with a nice, two centimetre tall but fading fast light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, raisins, caramel and a touch of a bit of roasted malt. Medium to Full-bodied; Deep chocolatey malt flavour at first with some nuts, caramel, toffee and a lot of prunes. Aftertaste is quite robust with nothing large and opaque, just a nice earthy, malty flavour with a ton of sweetness and a decent amount of alcohol coming through - especially for the brewery, you don’t expect this at all. Overall, a rather nice stout with some good true flavours with a long-lasting flavour that would go well with some earthier flavoured food here. I sampled this 33cL can purchased from CitySuper! Grocery Store at 2 IFC in Central, Hong Kong, SAR China on 10-August-2010 sampled at home in Washington a few days before setting back out to Hong Kong, in which I could imagine drinking this with some noodles from Tsim Chai Kee or Mak’s a few blocks away on Wellington in Central.

beerbrat99 (132) - Shanghai, CHINA - JAN 29, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2013 Bottle gift from the brewery. Pours nice and dark with brown/tan head. Aroma of heavily roasted malts that carries over to the flavor. A bit one dimensional in the flavor but surprisingly better when compared to their other products.

Camons (5957) - Hasselager, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2012
Bottle @ Hotelroom, Kunshan. Pours black with a creamy light tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, notes of coffee. Taste is roasted malt, licorice, coffee, burned toast, light medical touch, dark chocolate. Medium body, soft carbonation. Okies stout, flavour far more bitter than aroma, but the medical notes are putting me abit of. 050112

Bottle, thanks David! Drinkable malty with a medium body. More than I expected, but still rather anonymous

I am, in fact, kind of a fan of foreign stouts.... the sweet barley and malts get me many times, but luckily not every time! This has a decent head and a nearly black body. The aroma is adjunct sweetness and fake barley, sugary notes and all the mess like that. The flavour is average for a stout - lots of coffee and sugar shining through, but also sweet adjunct stuff messing up the balance. You could call this an "okay" macro stout - and you’d be right. And that’s about all it is.

KyotoLefty (6447) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 7, 2011
Bottle from Yamaya. Pitch black, with a medium, frothy, chocolate milkshake head. Roasty aroma, coffee, chocolte, cream. Not exactly fragrant, but pretty nice. Sweet, roaaty flavor, chocolate, cream, roasted wood, salt, something like oyster. Lots of umami, a bit of licorice. Tasty, though there is a strange aspect to it. Nicely roasted finish. Thick, rich body. A pretty nice beer. Surprisingly nice.

Grovlam (4154) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2011
Bottle brought and enjoyed in China. Huge light brown thick head that mostly lasted. Excellent display of lacework. Dark brown color with a reddish glow to it. Aroma of sweet light roasted malt, hint of chocolate, light dried fruity feel. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Light sweet and bitter flavor. Light roasted bittersweet finish. This was actually a positive surprise, with all the pale lager stuff that you normally find in China. Maybe I just needed the change of pace, but I enjoyed this one.
