motelpogo (6698) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 19, 2007
bottle, brewtopia 06. more like copper coloured than dark, not much sign of a head. fizzy, had to search pretty hard for dark malt character, perhaps a touch of milk chocolate

rw4244 (132) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2006
Bottle, 33cl. Pours a rich, dark amber with a muddy white head of fairly large bubbles. Strong, rich malty and nutty aroma, with notes of grain, chocolate and alcohol. The taste is extremely nutty, leading to a very chewy palate. Notes of coffee with the initial sip, chocolate and grain definitely present. The aftertaste lasts - a nutty/alcoholic bitterness, reflecting the strength of this beer. As mentioned, the palate is chewy and thick in the mouth (you almost want to bite into it...). This may look like a dark lager, but drinks much more like a tropical stout. Amid the hordes of poor Asian lagers this rarely seen brew really stood out to me. Though it may not go down as easily as a beer lao on a hot day, I recommend it.
