CPH2200 (334) - DENMARK - AUG 5, 2013
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.

Bamsen78 (4529) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle @ BBF13. Pours clear amber with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and hops. Sweetish, malty flavour with notes of caramel and fruit. Mildly sweet aftertaste. Sparse buttery notes. Not bad.

theisti (3524) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - AUG 1, 2013
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.

MrBeerFanatic (901) - Friona, Texas, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Pours a dark amber almost like whiskey with a pillowed head. Aromas of grain, grass, slightly musty, and hay. Flavors of light caramel/toffee, grass, and grain. No alcohol noticed. Lightly sweet. Lightly malty with a lighter hop note. Pretty sub par.

XJR (3) - PHILIPPINES - MAY 4, 2013 does not count
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.

Patrickctenchi (5078) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Pours deep, clear, brown with a huge, oatmeal head. Scent is caramel, earthy, leaves. Taste is dark, baked bread, a little metallic....malty. Dark and rich for an Asian beer... Pretty darn decent.
