Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, - NOV 11, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2011 I am pleased to be showing myself in a distinctive and remarkable way as I am irresistible and perceptive. My nightclub is a pub in Chinatown and this beer is courtesy of the New Yen Yen (I guess it should be the New Yuan Yuan really, of course the New Renminbi Renminbi would be just silly) supermarket where I purchased this for a keen price of $3.50. After finishing a Tiger schooner from the very aptly named pub for this area, The Mountbatten, I am now discreetly demonstrating my perspispacity by supping on this outside while watching Asia pass me by in my own back yard. What a shop I have just completed! I have roast dukk, chook feat and bean Kurd sheets. All this amid acid! Funny, canít taste the ratter, sorry latter, but I am enjoying a well presented glass of this with a fine lace and consistent head. Perfect crema atop an opaque deep black beer. The nose is chocolate malt and vanilla with such clean notes to show the quality control in the brewing process. These are not as prominent in the taste but the clarity of flavour and mouthfeel is impressive. ABV sneaks up on you as the glass warms but all you are ever left with is the pleasant burnt malt palate of a well produced stout. Good stuff old China.

GuideDogSaint (295) - Epsom, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2014
500ml can of the 4.5% version from Carrefour, Xiamen. Pours black with an off white head, thinly retained. Burnt chocolate, coffee, malt aroma. Slightly sweet finish but not horrendously like most mass produced Chinese stouts Iíve had. Will be having more of this.

Benzai (8226) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 17, 2014
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared by Joes. Brown color with a red glare coming through, small to medium sized beige head. Smell malts, rotting leaves, caramel. Taste malts, vegetables, leaves, caramel. Average body and carbonation. No, donít like it at all.

Can @ Joes. Brown colour with a small light brown head. Chocolate, roasty, some coffee. Tastes sweetish, roasty, coffee and a hint of chocolate. Pretty subtle. Medium body, nice carbo.

drpimento (2224) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2014
This was a gift from a friend Doug B, who brought it back with him from China, thanks Dougie! Poured with a light tan head, no lace and a clear dark mahogany color. aroma is malt vanilla anis and the barest hint of roast. Flavor is dominated by carbonic tang. Then really there's a little bit of dark sweet malt and not much else. Bodies is just a bit on the thin side. I guess if you didn't have many options for dark beer this would be welcome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

czlowiekwiadro (215) - POLAND - JUL 19, 2014
palony, lekko kremowy zapach z nutami czekoladowymi. kolor ciemny, ale nie czarny, w środku pływają niezbyt ładne ale też niezbyt widoczne kłaczki. piana przyzwoita, beżowa. w smaku pustawe, lekko wodniste, z wyraźną palonością i dość sporą goryczką. mało ułożone, ale nie czuć alkoholu.

JaKeAFC (545) - ITALY - JUL 16, 2014
355 cl bottle from a supermarket in Hong Kong, 7.5%. Pours black color, clear dark brown in closer look, big brownish head. Burnt malt on the nose. Aroma is licorice, dark malts, malzbier, dark bread, toasted malts, cocoa and coffee. Taste is somewhat sweetish, chocolateish, with a bitter dar chocolate finish. Carbonation is sustained, body is medium, finish is dusty, s bit sticky still quite dry, alcoholic. Quite good unexpectedly, tasty.

Melker (206) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUN 19, 2014
Bought in at Wellcome Super Store in Hong Kong (quite OK beer and wine selection actually). Have to admit that I didnít drink this properly, drank it straight outta the bottle. Roasted malt, some dark bitter chocolate and dark fruits. Thin and not very interesting.

maekchu (2134) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle from local Yamaya store. Good chocolate nose, light pine, some spiciness. Very dark brown, translucent at edges, 1-cm. dark tan head. Fizzy chocolate roast initial, goes to ripe dates, small bitter coating in finish. Medium body (a bit thin for the style). Good, but light for a foreign stout. Okay, but one-dimensional stuff.

Zarkam (421) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 4, 2014
(Based on notes from 02092014) 330ml bottle from a take-out sushi-joint in st. Petersburg, which amazingly enough also had take-out Chinese beer, 6.7% abv. Black colour, average frothy mostly diminishing light brown head, good lacing. Heavily malty roasted aroma of dark bread and mild coffee, moderate piney hops. Taste is initially bittersweet turning into a moderately bitter and slightly salty finish with a light alcoholic feel. Medium to full body, oily texture, lively carbonation. Bit too little aroma for something thatís closer to porter, but certainly the best Asian beer Iíve had ever as all the rest have been bog-standard lagers.

kidmartinek (3654) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Pours black pretty much with a tan head that fills at least 30% of the glass. Smell is a little sharp and somewhat sweet. Taste is kind of medicinal, little cocoa, little sweet but somehow decent. Dry finish. Pretty ok.
