wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2004
Tasted in Toronto. Obtained from in-laws post Thailand/Hong Kong trip. Tasted in a dimple mug. Black colour, light white head almost immediately dissolves. Salty sweet aroma, over burnt caramel scent. Taste is on the bitter side, with a hint of roast malt but finishes very bitter. Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 23, 2011
@ Qingdao beer festival. Black with nice brown head. Aroma and flavors are thin and sweet, but pretty nice. Fruity. Biitter orange with chocolate taste in finish. Thin and slightly sour. It almost wants to be a foreign stout but seems held back. Oakes (18828) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 17, 2004

Very dark brown with a thin light brown head. The aroma is caramelly with a little bit of chocolate syrup. Light caramel notes, a bit thin, almost cracker-like character.
Sampled bottled at Wei’s Pizzeria in Kunming, Yunnan
Dark chestnut colour with a huge, thick, light brown head. The aroma has a light roastiness and appetizing leafy hoppiness. The body is moderately full with rich malty flavours of nuts, dark chocolate, and light coffee. One of the finer schwarzbiers I’ve had. 8-5-8-5-17 = 4.3

Drinkable, but not preferable if there are other selections on the menu card.......... beerbrat99 (132) - Shanghai, CHINA - JAN 24, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2013 It’s dark in color but it smells rather odd with notes of soy sauce and vinegar. This beer was offensive and used to rinse (clean?) my kitchen drain. zaidush (1) - - OCT 4, 2012 does not count
best for refreshing after spicy food, great price for water,but not a beer
