Poured into a large weizen glass from the tap at the Hengshan Rd. location.
A: The beer is a solid opaque brown with little light coming in at the edges. Head is fantastic looking - tan and thick, sticking around for several minutes leaving a solid layer on the glass.
S: Strong and matly. A quick hit of alcohol immediately devoured by roasted malt, anise, and bread. Bittersweet baker's chocolate in there. the only fault is that there isn't enough. Faint at times, but great.
T: Baker's chocolate is first impression, followed by a bit more roasted malt and cocoa. Given the smell, the beer is not as complex as it first seems. Light bitterness of coffee in there. Pretty good taste.
F: Chewy and thick but leaves some dryness in the mouth.
Overall, a good stout. Super drinkable and has good character. Aroma makes it, but the taste is good also.

On draft as part of a sampler tray.
Appearance: cloudy, roasted caramel color. Attractive head and lacing.
Smell: toasted coffee aroma.
Taste: thin, watery flavor with lingering bitterness, somewhat unusual for the style.
Mouth: crisp, carbonated feel, again unusual for the style.
Overall somewhat disappointing version of an Irish Stout - not the smooth, toasty outcome I wanted.

Tap at the brewery in Shanghai.
Pours a murky mud like dark brown slightly black colored beer, bit of an ugly looking foamy head.
Nose creamy stout, dark malts, little roast like coffee, hint chocolate.
Taste more choc, biscuit, creamy milk stout, lactose, dried cocoa and milk, light roast and coffee, hint caramel, light metallic acrid over roasted flavor. Dry but creamy feeling finish.
Mouth is med bod, bit creamy, decent carb.
