Naale Stoutbeer 13° is a souvenir I picked up in Shanghai at Century Mart near my hotel. 4.5% This beer pours a cola brown with a big soapy beige head of foam. The aroma is pretty damn good rich chocolate toffee/fudge, kind of like burnt caramel. Med-light bodied, a bit too thin and the carbonation seems to be giving me a bit of heartburn. The flavor is alright with that burnt caramel fudge & molasses taste coming through strong but also a bit artificial like a flavoring syrup. Unfortunately, this beer goes downhill as you continue drinking it.

50 cl bottle @ wPBF Ⅲ,
Aroma is rather neat with coffee and truffle. Flavour has rather artifical chocolate tones and cardboard. Feels watery. Odd stuff, not sure if I like this or not.

50 cl can @ wPBF III.
Pours dark ruby red color with a minimal head. Very dry roasted coffee on the nose, some dark berries too, maybe faint cocoa powder. Very sweet and dry cocoa flavor, some dark, some creme brulee too. Quite unique brew, not what I would have expected from a can.

Canned at Petalax Beer Festival. Dark brown, small head. Unpleasant aroma of old coffee filters and cocoa powder. Sweet with light body and clean mouthfeel. Cocoa powder, chocolate sauce and metal. Low bitterness. Artificial and thin.
