Drake (11937) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 19, 2009
11.2 ounce bottle from State Line Liquors. Pours a brownish red color with a medium head. Fair head retention and lacing. Very sweet and almost sherry-like aroma with sweet malts, oak, grain and tart fruit notes. Taste is grain, raisin, prune, chocolate and a faintly bitter finish. Medium bodied and sticky.

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.

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.
