Thanks to Koelschtrinker for that bottle. Looks simple but good. Beer in the glass deep black, nice brownish head. Starts intense malty, not too roasty, strong with alcoholic hints. Dry-bitter background. Finish less dry, more woody-earthy. Warming aftertaste. Really nice!

Bottle Siem Reap, Cambodia, 8% abv.
Appearance: Black and almost opaque, fluffy tan head which endures.

18/X/2012 - 33cl bottle @ home - BB: n/a (2012-1146) Thanks to Thomas and Annelies for the bottle!
Clear dark brown beer, big creamy beige to brown head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweet, sugary, lots of overripe fruits, some banana, chocolate. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bit sour in the start, roasted malts, toast, some chocolate, sweet, caramel. Aftertaste: chocolate, mocha, cocoa powder, dry bitte rhoppy ending. If I were a Cambodian, thisíd be my session beer. Or maybe the Black Panther, that one was pretty good as well...

33cl bottle at The Roll Up in Siem Reap. Pours dark brown with a nice light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt with a hint of caramel. Quite sweet and not much bitterness, but still pretty nice in this corner of the world. (2012-05-02)

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
In Cambodia stout is popular among the richer locals and is called "srabier kmau" (black beer). The red label on the image calls it "Aekstraa Staau". This one has never really caught on, the locals prefer Black Panther and ABC, and I canít blame them itís not very good. I recommend staying clear of it; though I typically prefer stouts over lagers I think the regular Angkor is much better made here.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep dark brown coloured body with a slightly clear glow at the bottom with a nice, dense, thick light brown head, about two centimetres thick. Aroma of roasted malt, oatmeal, chocolate, earth, metal and some raisins. Medium to full-bodied; Dense thick earthy roasted malt with a lot of caramelised sugars, some nuts and a bit of showing of the alcohol. Aftertaste is mostly earthy with some of the roasted malt and a bit of sugars - nice. Overall, a pleasant and differing beer compared to most of the other lagers here - a ton of flavour and a good dense body goes well in the evenings - not so much during the day. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Pencil Supermarket in Phnom Penh, Cambodia earlier today on 03-April-2012 for 4500 Rial (US$1.10) sampled in my hotel room here in Phnom Penh.
