ah thank god for finding this in cambodia. too much chang, oh far too much chang. it's a stout, it's in a can, and it's nothing remarkable, but I still thought it was a great find. it looked like a stout, smelled like a stout, tasted like a stout, and was strong enough to overpower even the mosquitos.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Can from a stall alongside the river in Kampong Cham. Cost about 63 cents. From notes.

A - Poured with a two finger cola type head that was a beige colour. Black body with no light coming through. Spotty lace, film retention.

S - Chocolatey, roast, coffee beans. Quite chocolatey. Pretty basic but nice enough.

T - Mild. Chocolatey, roast, some cola.

M - Fairly decent bitterness. Mild carbonation, full body.

O/D - If you need a stout fix in Cambodia, this is probably your go to beer. A fairly decent stout that leaves something to be desired, but covered the basics very...basically. Sweet, strong, and a welcome change to the lager dominance. I'd have another, but I wouldn't brag about it.

Beer pours black with a relatively large tan head. Good retention and quite a lot of lacing.

Smell consist of roasted malt with a strong coffee smell.

Like the nose, the taste consists of roasted malt and coffee. Not complex, but not bad. Initially tastes a little watery and mediocre, but the finish is much better.

More carbonated than I like for the style. Full bodied, but lighter than one would expect for an 8% beer.

Overall, pretty good, especially considering the other options in Cambodia, but not a standout in any way.

My parents have just returned from a 93 Day, World Cruise, from Southampton to Southampton, spending my inheritance, not that I was expecting a huge bequest coming my way one day soon. I was however expecting Dad to bring me back a few beers, all I got was one can, this!

330ml can, I poured it into a Westmalle chalice (most likely the first time this beer has been in such a glass?). It looked fine, lovely dark hue to it and a good tan coloured head, sadly the head soon became a thin collar and left no lacing as the beer sank down the glass.

The smell was of burnt/roasted ground coffee, as was the taste. The beer began to have hints of liqurice within the flavours as it warmed up, but the coffee held firm throughout the tasteing and was the overiding flavour.

I thought the beer over carbonated, to fizzy for a stout really and lacking a little in body strenght and thickness.

Cheers Dad, my 66th Country reviewed on BA, but it could have been so many more if you'd tried!

This is easily the best beer I tried while in Southeast Asia. I wasn't so sure about a stout from a can, but it's a solid brew (edit: hey, if Oscar Blues can do it, so can Cambrew!).
Pours out and looks nice - deep dark brown with a small but dense brown head. Nose is roasty sweet malts and toffee. Taste was mostly ashy malts, with hints of abstract sweetness, well hidden alcohol, and some hops at the end. Mouthfeel is pretty good, as is drinkability.
Maybe this isn't that great of a beer, but when you've been drinking Angkor, Anchor, Beerlao, and Chang for a few weeks, this one stands out dramatically.

Black and yellow can with a rather Jaguar-looking panther on the front.

Brewed and canned under the "supervision" of Cambrew it says - I guess that's a generic label which means this could have been brewed by anyone, right?

Very dark brown-come-red-come-black body with a loose-bubbled crema coloured head. Head sticks around, but is not particularly creamy or thick.

Oxidised red wine permeates the nose. Sour malt, with an almost acid citrus tang. Also a final smoky aroma. Lots of stuff going on at least.

Nice chocolatey roasted palate on the front, which then dries out quickly to an oaky finish. Really quite smooth, not a hint of the astringent ashiness you get in some stouts. The alcohol is hidden very well. This one drinks very easily.

Mouthfeel is too light, however. No creamy fill...

Not a bad stout... Better than the other Asian standard ABC Extra Stout. It drinks a lot smoother than its 8% would suggest, in my opinion.

The name, as it reads on the can, is Black Panther Foreign Extra Premium Stout.

A - Minimal head (as to be expected from such a high alcohol stout).
S - Portwine, dark fruit, small amount of char.
T - Earth, tabacco, leather, low sweetness for style, bitterness a bit harsh.
M - Overcarbonated, light bodied for the style, but really good.

Thanks goes out to BA thesilverhand for lugging this all the way back to Japan from Cambodia.

This starts out as a pretty easy, simple, reasonably tasty stout. But the aftertaste...uggh. More on that...

Appearance is solid. It's got a great, clear but very dark look to it, and the head is quite sizeable and fluffy. Light chocolate milk aromas blended with a slight hint of sweet alcohol. Like stout-lite on the tongue. Chocolate, coffee, and roasted grains are present -- but in like a fraction of the amount I've come to expect even from average stouts. Part of this seems tied to the somewhat anemic mouthfeel. This is firmly in the middle of "medium bodied." Could be much meatier. It does, however, hide its alcohol VERY well. This tastes like a 4.5% stout brewed at a local brewpub. The aftertaste is kind of the killer here. A metallic, rubbing alcohol flavor dominates the finish and a good portion of the aftertaste. Minus that, this would be quite good...much more highly rated, I think.
