RATINGS: 151   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.13/5   EST. CALORIES: 204   ABV: 6.8%
COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The basis is an unfermented but hopped Guinness wort extract shipped from Dublin, which is added to local pale malt ingredients and brewed locally. The Malaysian version has in recent years seen an ABV downgrade to 6.8%.

The FES currently (2010) found in Hong Kong is the Malaysian version, as is the FES found in Cambodia.

As of 2011, this is the version now found in the Peoples Republic of China, which formerly had a 5% version. That version no longer exists, so Chinese FES ratings should go here.

330 ml can. Pours dark brown with a creamy brown head. Aroma of roasted malts with dark chocolate. The taste starts moderate sweet with some acidity and a slight bitterness in the finish.

dj (603) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2016
Can, 320ml, 5.5% ABV, brewed by Heineken Malaysia. Black colour with a small head. Aroma of toasted malt. Flavour is burnt malt with some hop notes. Some treacle sweetness. A watery note but alcohol somehow evident despite the low ABV. Not bad but not very special.

Malaysian anniversary bottle version, thanks for the long haul & Dispatch aus dem Norden Cantabrian! - [email protected]s. - Bref: sweet export mix that resembles in nothing the frothy black stuff from dear dirty Dumplin, - but still tops the alcoholic Belgian Export Version! - Charred malts, brown sugar, burnt toast, deep cheap caramels, bitters going on burnt chicory root. Good body for the abv.

Holmen1 (5575) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2016
Flaske (thanks, Cimbasso!) delt med Ovesen: brunsvart med tett og hjt skum som varer het til bunns. Deilig kirsebraroma med rstet malt og litt kaffe. Smaken er faktisk i den stlige retning, hvor kirsebrinntrykket av en eller annen grunn dominerer. Uventet i en Guinness. Men med en trr, stoutaktig avslutning.
