guzzler67 (1538) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 6, 2009
Clear brown appearance; actually, it was exactly the same color as the bottle itself. Muted, sweet, caramel malt aroma that turned vegetal as it warmed. Taste of maple syrup over rice. Light-to-medium bodied mouthfeel with good carbonation. Sticky sweet finish.

A passable dark lager that pairs well with spicy laotian food. Not much to recommend it outside of Laos, inside of Laos itís nice to have a dark option.

Beerlao Dark is a very clear brown lager with a fluffy off white head that leaves nice lacing. It has a faint aroma of grain and vegetables, with a hint of sweet and a hint of sour. It has a smooth medium body with a watery finish. It tastes slightly sweet, like dark malt extract, with no roastiness, really. Thereís a touch of chocolate and caramel and maybe squash or yams. Itís relatively inoffensive.

12 oz, mfd . Nov 06, 2008. Clear darkish brown with a two finger head. Aroma of molasses, skunk and toasted nut. Flavor is the same. LIght-medium body is dry and tingly. Probably good beer if your in Laos on vacation.

beyondbagot (4) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 22, 2009 does not count
As always tasting beer after a day spent on various long haul busses, tuk tuks and boats it was the best beer Iíve ever had. On reflection itís passable darkish ale and a wonderful relief from the sea of fizzy lager to the south. Pours like a flat coke, slight biscuit taste, wee bit of hops and sweetness

Palidor19 (3036) - Brandon, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2009
not too much on the dark front. the aroma is mostly weak, taste is a little soapy, with some rice background that is common in Asian made beers. drinkable

nick76 (4302) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2009
The aroma is a bit skunked with a little bit of caramel malt, chocolate, nuts, and a touch of grassy hops. The appearance is cola brown with a small head. The flavor is sweet and bitter but a lot like the aroma and also skunked. The palate is thin. Overall this is not that good and hardly a schwarzbier.

bradlyc77 (226) - Sebastopol, California, USA - MAY 7, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2009 Pours brown cola color and transparent. Better than regular Beer Lao with some caramel, chocolate, roasted malt, and dark/rye bread. Hardly a great schwartzbier, but an excellent alternative to the abundance of light lagers in Asia.

Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 19, 2009
11.2 ounce bottle from State Line Liquors. Pours a brownish red color with a medium head. Fair head retention and lacing. Very sweet and almost sherry-like aroma with sweet malts, oak, grain and tart fruit notes. Taste is grain, raisin, prune, chocolate and a faintly bitter finish. Medium bodied and sticky.

daknole (10045) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 19, 2009
Bottle from Case and Keg. Brown pour very thin white head. Aroma is malty, sweet, honey and grain. Flavor is overly malty and too sweet. slight bitter finish, but not much. Meh.
