Bottled. Tnx Noize for the import. Aroma has liquorice, some roast, grains. Clear, black coloured beer with a thin head. The taste has some roast, malts, liquorice. Bit salty soy like. Very funny commercial description. probably typical for the Chinese. Mao’s red book was also such a laugh. I’m afraid they are serious.
