ABC Extra Stout – Archipelago Brewery Company

From Archipelago Brewery Company in Singapore (contract brewed by Cambodia Brewery in Phnom Penh, Cambodia) owned by Heineken comes their “ABC Extra Stout”.  The beer pours an opaque black colour with a brown head. The aroma consists of mild roasted malts, some dark fruits, mild bitterness and resin. The flavour is of roasted coffee, earth, dark fruits, mild chocolate, some bitterness and a resin finish. The alcohol content comes in at 7%. This was a pretty decent imperial Stout and from what I gather it is one of the best packaged products in South East Asia. If you find yourself there and see this beer give it a try.

commercial Description:  Crafted since 1931, ABC Extra Stout’s uncompromising flavour and taste are the results of the exacting brewing process adopted by APB breweries, and the quality ingredients used for the brew. Besides the finest roasted malt and hops which go into the making of ABC Extra Stout, what completes it as a truly signature brew of APB is the unique strain of yeast that is specially-cultured in Holland. ABC Extra Stout is treasured for its rich, full-bodied flavour, roasted malt aroma and silky-smooth finish. ABC Extra Stout with its 7% alcohol content offers stout lovers the enjoyment of a dry stout with its distinct roasted malt taste. Each serving of ABC Extra Stout is usually topped with a thick foam that works to entice those thirsting for a full-bodied dark beer. The brew is best served between 4ºC and 6ºC.
