3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the brewery. I suspect there may be some batch to batch variation on this brew. My sample was very thin looking- plenty of light made it through this beer giving it a thin, black/brown appearance. The taste was very mild for a stout. There were some hints of roasted malt. Low bitterness. OK but not great.
On draught at the Donghu Lu location. Jet black. Creamy little head with a super dark brown head (it evaporates pretty quickly, though). Aroma is milk chocolate and a bit of charcoal. Taste is sweet chocolate with a bit of fresh espresso. Good, but not distinctive. fajry (2252) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 16, 2015
Vycap SB. Tmava cierna farba, hneda pena. Vona prazenych sladov a kavy. V chuti plnsie telo, prazene slady, trosku karamelu a kavy. Krasna dochut. TimE (6127) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 16, 2015
wayyyy too much coffee and roasted character with hardly any balance. Just rough and raw. Blah. Again for whatever reasons the beers seem to tame after the first couple of sips. Still overall not very good at all. GuideDogSaint (1749) - Xiamen, CHINA - MAR 3, 2015
On tap at Dongping Rd as part of a tasting flight. Pours black brown with a dissipating white head. Aroma of roasted liquorice and chocolate. Sweet finish. sbron (241) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2014

Draft. Pours a dark brown. Mild aroma of roasted malts. Weak tasting stout with roasted malts and mild bitterness. kidmartinek (5007) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Cloudy, chalky brown color. White head and lacing. Raunchy malt character. Stinky and delicious. Roasted bitter malt taste. Better than average but the body is a bit thin. TheJestersBeer (2431) - SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2013
