2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
First beer from Laos.
The appearance is dark mahogany with crimson highlights. Big soapy white head that hangs around for a long time. The aroma brings some lager yeast, dark fruits, brown bread. Prickly carbonation with some hop bitterness in the back. A tad sweet. Light to medium in body. Ok.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 6.5% abv. The first dark beer I found in Thailand after 14 days surrounded by watery pale lagers. Alcohol is noticeable, sweet notes of syrup. Nothing special but one of the better beers you will find in Thailand.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
11.2 oz bottle purchased at Total Wine & More in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The pour is brown golden with a mostly clear tan head that falls quick. The aroma is soft nut and cocoa sweetness, along with a hint of grass. The taste is really bland, thin sweet chemical along with the sweetness. The palate is watery thin, with a thankfully relatively clean finish. Not horrible, just dull.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A simple uplifting dark beer very suitable for balmy tropical nights as a change from a world of pale Asian lagers. It pours to light tan creamy head which falls away to a light lacing. The nose is one of scorched caramelized coffee bean and quite pleasant. It has a lighter than expected mouth-feel. The foretaste is reminiscent of burnt bread crust and light yeast which falls-off to an a brief after-taste of raisins and oranges.
