chinchill (1889) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 21, 2012
undated 330 ml bottle. Pours clear dark brown with a large tan white head that has moderate duration. Very sweet aroma of roasted malts, caramel and rice. Also has a sweet and roasty flavor, but not nearly as sweet as the aroma suggests. Medium body with medium carbonation. O: Interesting and better than expected.

Beerbarella (343) - - DEC 5, 2012
330 ml bottle. Pours clear dark brown with a small white head. Roasty caramel and rice aroma. Tastes of rice and honey, but it is not sweet and there is a very mild bitterness to it. Mild palate with a pleasant bitterness.

beeracoon (438) - - DEC 5, 2012
Medium white head. Sparkling clear dark brown colour. Uniquely sweet honey rice aroma and something I cannot really fathom. Wonderfully caramelly roasty taste with a lasting palate. A true gem.

Dewnans (12) - LAOS - DEC 2, 2012
Forget the idea of a western style dark beer, thick and heavy. This is a dark lager for South-East Asian conditions. It has more flavour than the lighter "beerlao" lagers, but not so filling that you need to release the trouser belt a notch. A pleasant but not overpowering taste. If you are looking for a heavier beer in Laos try the ABC stout.

JakobBKK (11) - Bangkok, THAILAND - NOV 3, 2012
Pours a dark brown with a small head and little lacing. Aromas are sweet, caramel and malt. The taste is a caramel and very little bitterness. All in all a decent dark beer that is very easy to drink. By far one of the best beers in Southeast Asia!

Grzesiek79 (3218) - Radom, POLAND - NOV 2, 2012
Smaczne piwo o brązowo-czerwonym kolorze. Ciemne piwa egzotyczne są jednak trochę przesłodzone ale mimo to niezła ciekawostka smakowa

Sigmund (5121) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2012
Shared 330 ml bottle at local tasting. ABV is 6.5%. Dark reddish brown colour, moderate off-white head. Unusual aroma, marzipan / artificial almond flavouring, some caramel and rice. The flavour has some caramel malts, but is not very sweet. Hints of almond essence again. Esoteric, but not a great beer.

0,33 l bottle from Ambrosetti, Berlin. Clear deep copper body with a with a dense tan colored film. Caramel nose. Caramel and a little toasted bitterness. Medium body, Lightly overcarbonated. Papery bitterness lingers.

Cantabrian (828) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 10, 2012
Much better than the local Indochinese lagers, this is still a poor beer. Too watery, with hardly any aroma. The "black beer" taste is over diluted.
