4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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!

Smaczne piwo o brązowo-czerwonym kolorze. Ciemne piwa egzotyczne są jednak trochę przesłodzone ale mimo to niezła ciekawostka smakowa

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured dark brown with a smallish head. Sweet malts. This is type of cheap beer I like mix with a cheap corn lager to give it some taste when there is nothing else available like in Latin America and parts of Asia.

This good looking dark brown beer is kinda sweet. It is one of the most unique lagers I've tasted.
