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.

dj (574) - 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.

bartlebier (3556) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2016
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 (5099) - 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.

mile (3861) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 31, 2016
Bottle. Very dark brown, average and mostly diminishing light brown head. Moderate to full, malty and sugary sweetish aroma, light - some caramel and light berry fruitiness and faint roasted malt, light coffee. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, light caramel and faint roasted malt, light coffee, faint hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, light berry fruitiness, light caramel and roasted malt with light coffee faint hoppness and alcohol. Way too sweet stout for me - could really use some bitterness.
