Haywards 5000, Indias first genuine stout beer , is handcrafted from a rich blend of the world famous Caledon valley dark roasted barley malt along with a blend of imported and locally produced pale malts. New Zealands super alpha hops give Haywards Black a unique and pleasantly bitter taste with a hop like aroma. The Dark Roasted malt provides a rich dark colouring along with a unique smoky taste and aroma. The Slow brewing process which incorporates specially managed yeast creates the creamy head and the rich smooth taste that stout is so much loved for. Haywards Black is brewed under the special care of renowned brew masters with many years of brewing expertise and rich experience from the SABMiller stable , One of the largest brewing companies in the world with a brewing heritage of over a hundred years.

My favourite beer when I need it to get me pickled. Take 6 of these whoppers, punch your taste buds with the hottest curry you have ever tasted and instantly enjoy the ensuing hours simulating what it feels like to be an alcoholic for over 40-50 years. My only regret is it's extremely hard to get in Australia.

Haywards 5000 has a thin, white head, a clear, yellow-gold appearance, tiny, white sediment specks, throughout, and some sheet lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of honey-topped white bread, green apple, white bread crust, malt, golden raisin, and rice pudding. Taste is of those elements, with sharp alcohol notes (think of V.S. brandy), some grain husk, honey, corn, and a touch of low-level, rounding hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium,and Haywards 5000 finishes crisp and enjoyable. RJT

I had a 650ml bottle at a restaurant w. company, so my comments are general and may be corrupted by Indian food, but Id have to say that Ive found a really fine Indian beer. Nicely aromatic, strong at 7% alcohol, a nice deep gold color w. sweet, fruity, full flavor. Great complement to the food.

One of Indias largest selling strong beer with 7%. This beer taste like malt liquor. Head is average. Very stron aromatic. Light carbonation to keep you from getting gassy and bloated. Definately goes well with tandoori and other sorts of spicy Indian food!!

12 oz bottle from Ds in Pittsburgh. I see that the ratings are kind of low, but I liked this one for what it is. Had a nice lingering taste that stayed with you and was pleasantly smooth overall making the experience above average. Try it yourself and give it a fair chance.

Blairgus (4259) - California, USA - MAR 27, 2012
26 mar 2012, bottle. Light yellow, clear, steady bubbles. Soft aroma: green apples and hay. Thin body and fizzy. Tastes like a sweet lager with some alcohol background. Not great but surprisingly light for an 8% beer. This certainly has its place in Indian cuisine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
