66cl bottle. Brown amber with medium and ivory tanned head. Nose : yeast, bread, ginger cookie, roasted. Sip : low to medium density with good carbonation. Sweet with roasted notes. Ginger cookie and roasted grains background. The finish is moderately bitter malty flavour. The beer is not that bad.
From old tasting notes. Labeled as "Ngoma Awooya Special Malt Liquor". Clear mahogany brown color. Big bubbly tan head. Light toasty malt aroma. Toasted malt flavor lacks complexity and body. Bitter, but unbalanced. Manslow (1631) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 22, 2015

650ml bottle [not only taking the effort of carrying this one all the way from Ouagadougou to BI, altogether another bountiful donation made by Aziz - thank you very much!]. Clear, chestnut colour with average, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white to beige head. Grainy, strawy, muggy aroma, hints of wet straw and rabbit droppings, a very backgroundish nuttily touch. Taste is nuttily malty, slightly strawy, some caramel malty sweetness, a touch of malt lozenge, some malt spiciness. Very "natural" aroma, OK taste. JakfromAtak (3) - - SEP 12, 2014 does not count
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2014 My Togo beer of choice.
Amber like the the hair of the girl that got away,
smooth like the surface of a crystal clear lake on a windless day
Has won two international awards in the last 40 years (6.2% Al. Cont.) (550 f CFA - 66cl)

66cl bottle. Light brown colour with a nice beige head. The nose is slightly alcohol together with smooth malt. The beer starts smooth, light and nice. Brown - like the colour, hints of hazelnuts, nice roasted malts, not too sweet. Very fresh and easy to drink. The aftertaste is smooth, malty, fresh. It tastes a bit like the 6.2%, but still light and smooth. kevnic2008 (11980) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2013

Thanks to travlr for bringing this home all the way from a land far far away. This beer pours ruqby copper with a tiny beige head. Aroma is weak soapy, caramel malts, weak spice, dry lagerish, tobacco, dry ropes and some corn. Taste is hops, caramel malts, spice, grains, nuts, weak metallic and some weak soap. phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - MAY 9, 2012
Rate country tick from travlr. Pours nice amber with an OK off white head. Aroma is spicy and hoppy. Smells like those coffee bags made from fabric, some tobacco, almost nicotine smell, some malt presence, a bit of stale hoppiness. The taste is basic malts and some sourish stale hoppiness, some weird tobacco/nicotine component like the aroma. Not exactly bad, but as you can tell, nothing you should sell your red cross food portion to get your hands on.
