look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pitch black in color, just as expected. Little carbonation. One inch head that resolves down to a cap.

Smell: Toasty, rich smell. Chocolate, creamy. Very inducing.

Taste: Roasted taste up front with hints of creamy chocolate and vanilla.

Mouthfeel: Thick and creamy, like a milkshake. Smooth and went down well.

Overall: Rather impressed, being that it is one of my first stouts I have tried. Wasn't sure I would like it, but as I kept drinking, I acclimated to the taste and enjoyed it overall. The pitch black color was great.

A: Dark brown to black with a slight ruby tinge when held to the light. Almost opaque but not. Half a finger of tan brown head. Cannot see carbonation.

S: Very watery, slight toasted malt scent, slight creamy bovine milk like scent. Slight coffee and dark cocoa.

T: Slight toasted malt, molasses, creamy milk or cheese like quality, a little cocoa and chocolate but all are very faint, smooth drink.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation, very smooth.

O: Like a watered down version of the Foreign Extra. A lot smoother it would pair well with a wider variety of foods. I like it and could see having it at pub with food. This version was produced in Shanghai.
