Had in Beijing.
335ml bottle poured into a pint glass.
ABV: 6.7%
Ingredients list water, barley, rice, and hops.

A- Quite a dark brown. Thick tan head dissipates quickly. Moderate carbonation.

S- Roasted malt. Alcohol. Dark Cherries and raisins.

T- Bitter, burnt taste. Boozy dark fruit. Sour Cherries.

M- Decently thick mouthfeel. Sweet and boozy finish.

A commendable attempt at a stout from one of China's largest breweries. Enjoyable for what it is.

Bought this beer with absolutely no expectation when travelling in Shandong, China
Poured from a bottle that was produced in Qingdao city into a tumbler
refrigerated to about 7 degrees C
Looks like flat coca-cola, with pretty much no head
Has a strong toasty, malty and rather sweet smell, and somewhat reminiscent of roasted coffee beans
The flavor is full, bitter, caramel, malty, but not fruity nor sweet. The taste is dry, one can almost taste the alcohol
After swallowing the beer, the bitterness is not long lasting, rather, sweetness returns to the palate like drinking a fine cup of Chinese tea

Verdict: this is a fantastic beer. Taste is reminiscent of American stouts such as the Lagunitas cappuccino stout (except this Tsingtao is actually very very palatable). If one runs into it, I strongly recommend at least try

Ok, my 1st stout here in Hong Kong. Poured from an 11.2 oz. bottle. Has black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild,a bit of coffee. Taste is not mild, coffee, hops, some chocolate, well done. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

I appreciate Dr G for sharing this foreign stout, enjoyed chilled in a tumbler.

The color is deep brown like cola with light coffee brown at base with translucent clarity. The head is thick and creamy with tan shade -measures about 2 1/2 fingers. There is good retention too with above average amount of lace stickage. The smell is very nice with blend of caramel and plum aroma with mild roast notes and slight spice with gentle herbal hop ester and slight hint of char. The feel has a dry body with moderately high carbonation and sweet middle with high roasted texture and spice with gentle dry and slightly creamy finish.

This stout tastes mineral and burnt up front with some subtle caramel creaminess and dark coffee with nice anise note from the yeast with light nutty malt tinges and gentle vanilla note with mild stone fruit from the yeast with dark cherry and dark sugar qualities. I liked this overall I couldn't really complain, but not the best as far as the style goes. It is a quaffable beer and I could have several without issue, nice body and flavor.

Reviewed from phone notes. Bought in 7/11 in Hong Kong for next to mix.

Pours a two finger black n tan with good lacing.

Aromas and taste of sweet roast malts, loads of chocolate and restrained bitterness to back it with.

Creamy mouthfeel, and full bodied.

Overall a real surprise in terms of taste and presence - having said that I only now realise it is not a 5% beer, but higher, explains all the flavours.

Pleasnt surprise, wishe di had bough one back in suitcase.
