GT2 (7884) - Carlsbad, California, USA - OCT 27, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2010 Beerlao Dark is near and dear to my heart. Too bad it is impossible to find in the states. 330 mL bottle (the only thing it comes in as far as I know). Pours a clear, dark red with a very thin off-white head. Okay lacing. Aroma is slightly skunked with some lighted roasted malt, honey, and caramel. Very unpredictable and can range from a skunked soy sauce to a great, chocolatey dark beer. Very smooth and light on the palate. Lots of rice in the background and a bit of balancing hops. Alcohol is not entirely masked but is not warming. Overall, the best beer you will find in SE Asia.

Bottle. Pours cola brown with off white head. Nose and taste of malt, caramel, dirt/earth and chopped nuts. Lighter than medium bodied. Not unpleasant.

j12601 (6585) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear dark mahogany brown with a thin to medium sized beige head. Toast and a touch of roasted malt on the nose. Gentle malt and a touch of roast. Slightly nutty, toast, more malt. Finishes with a slight sweetness and roasty malt. Decent and easy drinking. Pleasantly surprised.

Ibrew2or3 (6523) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2012
33cl brown bottle pours brownish copper with full tan head and spotty lacing. I’m clueless on how this could be a Vienna style beer. Ratebeer confounds at times. The aroma is a little dusty and then offers up modest earthy notes, spicy hop notes, a touch of roasted malts, nuttiness and gravel road. The taste has sweet malt infused nuttiness rolling slowly into a bit of roasted malts, spicy hops and earthiness. Pretty nice stuff.

crossovert (6352) - Illinois, USA - FEB 10, 2011
You never expect much from these southeast Asian breweries, but this one isn’t bad. Not an american style dark lager though, more of a European style, not a dunkel though.
