very dark brown with a white head. smell is mild, some malt. taste is of malt, very little roast. some caramel sweetness, sweetness is only countered with astringency rather than bitterness. carbonation is strong and harsh. poor crap, a typical east asian "black beer"

KeefOz (1401) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAR 21, 2016
BB 05.2016. Poured a dark red-brown with a ruby edge tint and a two-finger light tan head that diminished slowly and laced OK. Carbonation low to moderate and medium sized bubbles. Aroma slightly of caramel malt. Taste slightly of caramel malt with a hint of roasted grain; low bitterness. Light body, a bit thin. Clean and dry with a slightly sweet finish.

jmgreenuk (6740) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAR 5, 2016
Draft at Harrys Bar, Boat Quay, Singapore. Poured a clear dark brown with a frothy light tan head. The aroma is light roasted malt, liqourice. The flavour is moderate liqourice bitter sweet with a rich think creamy light hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

Oakes (14669) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2016
Found this at a Chinese restaurant in Melbourne. Dark brown with a full head. Aroma is a bit cocoa-toasty, as typical of the better big brewery dark lagers. Softer body, light chocolate.

Can. Pours a dark brown. Aroma and taste are light roasted malts and that’s about it. Better than any lager but not great.

thorongil2 (2147) - , Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2015
(can) clear, dark brown with a tall brown head; aroma of dough, then hint of roast; watery palate; watery flavour with a light bitter finish; worse than expected

mintzmeet (418) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 3, 2015
Dry slightly bigger finish. Nice wetness on the tongue. Not too complex, could this be a dark lager? Tastes kind of like a bland stout that’s been thinned with seltzer water.

ALLOVATE (2816) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2015
Radiant, deepest ruby with an off-white, drabby foam atop that laces well. Sulphury, eggy fart ensued by notes of boiled cabbage with just a hint of topsoil and peat. Tastes a lot better than it smells. Moss, earth, soft green herb and nut husks. No bitterness. Light sugars to the front with a touch of rust on the swallow. Chalky feel with a light body. Drinks with alarming ease but there’s nothing here to make it bounce. (33,4cL, BBE 10/15, Thirsty Camel, Ellenbrook)
