Palidor19 (3051) - 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 (4304) - 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 (10163) - 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.

nuplastikk (4971) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 1, 2009
12oz bottle courtesy of Ann. Pretty medium colored for a dark beer, transparent tan-brown color. Mild sugary sweet aroma. Toasty, some mild dark chocolate tastes. I’d drink the hell out of this beer if I resided in Laos. Smooth, with a quality mouthfeel. This is pretty harshly underrated. A nice Schwarzbier all the way.

JPDIPSO (4993) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 24, 2009
Light brown color with an aged ivory colored head. Aromas of cocoa and dark caramel. I’m catching some sharpie scents as well. Flour glue and light alcohol flavors. Bits of toasted grain and wild honey. Lifeless fell. Not real clean and as close to glue as I’ve had since kindergarten.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Bottle - Had at Thai restaurant. Basically what you might expect from a dark lager brewed in Laos and served at a Thai restaurant. Thin, mild body, and good with spicy thai food.

Travlr (15209) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 2, 2009
UPDATED: APR 11, 2010 The best Laotian beer I have ever tasted. of course, also the ONLY one. A thin, dark, watery beer with barely perceptible hops. No need to search for more Laotian beer.

eaglefan538 (2926) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 7, 2008
Bottle from SL I think. No idea why this is categorized as a schwarzbier, a swill variant of a dunkel at best. Pour was clear brown with a thin but well sustaining head that was only slightly off-white. The aroma was corn with toasty notes some chocolate. The flavor followed, dry caramel, chocolate, nuts, toasted off corn, fruity type notes. The last two just ruined anything dunkel under this whole thing. Mouthfeel was light. This was Laosian dark Budweiser. Oh well, another country to tick.
