XJR (3) - - MAY 4, 2013
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.

kidmartinek (3303) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Caramel color, a little on the dark side. Respectably holds a foamy, dirty white head. Aroma is rye and adjunct grains. Flavor is rye, caramel, corn, dirt, and occasionally metal. Probably made in rusty steel tanks in Laos. This beer is inconsistent, sometimes its good, and other times its offensive. It’s probably pretty nice if you chill the nastiness out of it.

hotstuff (3912) - Indiana, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Rated on 6-07-2010 - This bottled beer has a medium sized very fizzy off-white head with a short retention, 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, some caramel, and dark fruits. The palate is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. This is a rather blah tasting beer and thus lacks character and no WOW factor. This is a beer that I will not seek out again.

Dark amber. Good amber. Sweet and balanced. Crisp, drinkable. Not bad for class

Sampled on my trip to Thailand. A really cool beer for the area, where most brews have terrible flavor. Well made and great for the area.

Erzengel (1904) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 10, 2014
Brown in the glass, thick white head. The beer starts sweetish-mild. In the mainpart there is a sweet malty note, a bit roasted and kind of sharp. The ending is medium, sweetish-malty, hints of roast and only little bit of hops.
--> for a dark lager, this beer is a bit thin - not in body, but in taste. There are even hints of the alcohol, which is at 6.5% unusual and no sign of quality… --> 10/9/7/7
