Can. Very dark brown with light brown head. Good introduction to the stout style i guess. Roasted malt and syrup. Fairly low bitterness for the style ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Nice simple version of the stylistic classic. A little lighter on the palette than the original.

Not much to find in Bali, but this and Anker Stout pretty much it for dark beer. I grabbed a couple singles forgetting that it’s not the same 7% foreign extra that we get here in the states. Couldn’t really find much difference between this and the regular Guinness Extra Stout that’s about 5% and change. Maybe a little lighter with less flavor actually, but still a decent stout.

Aroma: chocolate, toasted malts, caramel. Appearance: black, small, frothy, beige head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: coffee, toasted malts, sours coming up, dry finish. Overall: sub-standard interpretation of the FES, too sweet in aroma, to bitter in palate, yet if you are in Indonesia would surely prefer that over local lagers. Bottle from a friend (thanks Marco!).

"The basis is an unfermented but hopped Guinness wort extract shipped from Dublin, which is added to local ingredients and brewed locally." Now lets see, we’ll add a lot of rice and sugar and the not particularly palatable local water and brew it up! Result, a not very good imitation of Guinness. Since the general run of beer in Indonesia is of such poor quality (lucky to have any at all in the world’s most populous Muslim country) I would seek this out where it was available, mostly in Bali. Not so hot.

Manslow (2342) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 19, 2015
Butelka na lotnisku. Kolor ciemnobrązowy, piana jasnobrązowa, trwała. Aromaty palonego słodu i lekko wanilii, ziemiste.W smaku lekko kwaskowe, palony słód. Nagazowanie dobre, niezłe piwo jak na Indonezję.

anstei (3618) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 10, 2015
620ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a big creamy head which dissolves into big bubbles. Roasty aroma, but not intense. Slight bread taste, but not near as much as the original Guinness. Roasty bitterness. After 3 weeks of Bintang and Bali Hai, this is a relevation.

2.7
blackisle (3275) - Amsterdam IJburg, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2015
Bottle @hotel Manado, Indonesië. Pitch black, foamy tan head, recedes quickly; sweet malt nose, coffee, candy sugar, light roasted; light bittersweet taste, sugary; light body, watery texture, soft carbonation, light bittersweet finish; artificial deel, not the real thing at all.

1.9
Sibarh (179) - Bialystok, POLAND - MAR 8, 2015
Kolor - czarny, pod światło rubinowe przebłyski. Piana - beżowa, średnio wysoka, średnio trwała. Zapach - lekko palony. Smak - lekko palony, średnia kawa, dość wyraźne nuty kwaskowate, lekka goryczka. Zaliczone. Niezbyt smakowite. Za duży kwasek.
