500ml can poured into a pint glass.

It pours jet black in color with very thick frothy tan head that stays with good retention before gradually subsiding to some bubble film atop and leaving very limited amount of lacing.

Prominent sweet coffee in the aroma, it is like a milk coffee or coffee candy together with somewhat sweet syrup, brown sugar, and nut. There is not much of roasted profile in the display.

The taste has more roasted character comparing to the aroma. It comprises of roasted coffee that is slightly sour, coffee candy, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, some sweetness, and dark bread as well as very faint bitterness from roasted malt.

The body is light to medium with mild crispness and low to moderate carbonation, semi-smooth mouthfeel with a dry finish. Not that bad and unexpecting, sessionable of course.

Thank you to my friend Tom for getting this one in China for me. Pull tab can!!! Hells yeah pull tabs! I miss pull tabs! Sadly the pull tab was the highlight of this brew. Poured into 10oz goblet. Poured a translucent light black, I've had darker Porters. There was just a very light head that had no retention or lacing.

Other than some very soft maltiness, the aroma was very neutral, it didn't smell like anything. Again, the beer was bland and featureless. Other than some malt and sweetness, nothing.

The body was thin, but OK. Drinkability was OK, but nothing that I'd seek out. On the other hand, if I were in China, I'd probably be pretty happy that the comrades gave me any choice. Hey look, a hundred bajillionleventy Chinese dudes can't be all wrong, can they?

Pours dark brown with decent amount of tan to cream colored head. About an inch on an aggressive pour. Head retention is okay. The smell is a bit faint, a bit of roasted malt, maybe a whiff of chocolate in there.

The taste is pretty thin. A little malty, but the carbonation masks what little is there. Tastes more like a dark lager than a stout.

Overall, not great, but if you're drinking this, you're probably in China, where your options are generally not great. This stuff is widely available and is a better option than most of the other domestics.

Naale stout exits the pull-tab can a dark chocolate brown with a small settled head above. The aroma has thin chocolaty notes but little else. The palate is also thin and carbonated. Very little flavor to speak of beyond the diluted one-horse chocolate train. Not very distinct with little resemblance to a stout. The beer goes down easy enough, though.

A friend of mine brought me back a 500mL can of this from China a few days ago. Poured from the can into a pint glass.

Appearance: very dark brown with a crystal clear body and a thin tan head which dissipated quickly. Not what I think of when I think of a stout, really, but overall not too bad an appearance.

Smell: light aroma of a dry stout or a nut brown ale. Some nice nuttiness with a tiny hint of coffeelike roast and absolutely no hops. Again, not bad.

Taste: not particularly stouty, but interesting. It's got hints of maybe a baltic porter with a light nuttiness continuing from the aroma. There's a fruitiness here which I quite like, but it's bordering on the artificial in its quality. I'm not saying that there's anything necessarily artificial here, but it just doesn't seem to taste quite ... natural. Still, not bad.

Mouthfeel: pretty light in body with a decent level of carbonation. I'd say it is a bit light for a stout, but I'm not sure really that this beer *is* a stout. I think the light tingliness of the texture complements the lightly fruity aspects of the flavor quite well.

Drinkability: oddly quite drinkable. I would actually quaff a couple cans of this if given the chance.
