Had this the first time just about 6 years ago in Kuala Lumpur, of all places. It’s still as special as I remember it. Heavy, moody, decadent stout, with that chilli just present enough to keep you keen.Earned the Untappd at Home (Level 7) badge! Earned the Photogenic Brew (Level 30) badge!
Not terrible, but a bit hollow. Starts like Castle Free, nice on the nose. But thins out on the tongue in a fizz of bubbles and finishes much like soda water.Earned the Verified Adventure (Level 8) badge!
Like Rum & Coke, but coke in a glass only rinsed with with a dribble of rum. Overly sweet, thin body, not even a wisp of oak chips, fizzy, cloying. Just the one for me, thanks.

The closest to the alcoholic counter part I’ve ever found in a non-alcoholic version. Appearance, nose, mouthfeel, and even the palate would fool me. There’s just something lacking in the finish, a hollowness? That gives it away.Earned the Luck of the Irish badge!
