Strong Ale Works Bitter Ale
Hazy copper color with a golden tint and a frothy 1"+ head. Nutty and fruity aroma. Quite bitter flavor dominated by nuttiness. I like it. It beats the cold in Shanghai.

Strong Ale Works Black Ale
Bottle at Kingís Head in Qingdao. Nearly opaque dark brown. Unfortunately no head. Nice licorice aroma smells like Panda licorice. The black licorice continues in the flavors and is the predominant flavor. Thin but clean and drinkable. Very pleasant, I like how it stops just short of being too sweet. Just a straightforward herbal black licorice profile.

Bottles, had at random places around Qingdao--hopefully these micros become easier to find. Copper colored beer, stable white cap. Aroma is stewed cabbage, peppery. I suppose itís sulfury, but the spicy hop comes through enough that itís not so offensive. Too much tomato juice/V8 here, but manages to be (just) drinkable. Has probably seen better days, so am giving it the benefit of the doubt.

Hazy dull amber with a thin head. The aroma is light hop with a little bit of overripe peach. Spicy character, light liquorice and background caramels. A well-structured beer. Not my favourite flavours, but quite a well-made beer.

Strong Ale Works Black Ale
Bottle from Kingís Head. Dark brown. Didnít pour with a head. The taste is rich, full of molasses, liquorice, Vietnamese coffee...and this was when it was still cold. Lots of flavour. Liquorice and blackberries first. The body picks up a touch of oiliness late. Oh hell yes, great effort from a new Chinese microbrewery.

This is a bottle conditioned beer, and it really lends to the beer. The aroma has some general fruit flavors in it. Color is deep red and clear with a strong white head. Itís a sweet beer with a good tabacco type flavor balancing out that sweetness. Mildly bitter.
