3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Much better then we would have expected. Tastes more like a craft beer then a domestic. Pours a nice dark black with a tan head. Smells of chocolate and coffee. Taste is smooth with a bit of carbonation, some coffee and chocolate and a bit of vanilla not bad at all! Had in the bottle.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Above average for beer from Asia. For the style though, perhaps just below average. There is some caramel malt and bready flavor in there, but the balance could be better.....with some mild sour in there. I would have had this out in Indonesia given the limited choices there....but not something I would really look to here. Decent strength though and worth the try.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This bottled beer poured a medium sized very fizzy off-white head. Transparent orange body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, roasty, sweet, and alcohol. The taste is sweet malt with some caramel, dark fruits and metal. This is a rather blah tasting beer, but is country # 47 for me.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear, amber-orange color, with a soon collapsing, bubbly head.
Smells of grains, rustic bread and toffee malts, with an earthy, slightly perfumy note.
Has a pleasantly light body, with a malty flavor profile to it, enriched by the beers bubbly carbonation.
Tastes of a bakers chocolate, earthen foundation, together with a faint coppery note, which introduces more and more toffee to the palate. The toffee quality turns slightly sticky during the finish, with a refreshing, slightly metallic carbonation.
Turns a tad one dimensional sweet, solely relying on the malts, while producing a nice earthiness, adding some depth.
