Heathen (1470) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 11, 2010
THOUGHTS: Not bad, but not great either. Surprisingly cloying. The hops in this one were pretty much just there to keep this from being nauseatingly sweet. It was a bit one sided, but it went down fairly easily. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, very dark, copper to dark, orangey bronze with nice carbonation and a large to huge, rocky, off-white head that mostly, but slowly diminished leaving excellent lacing. The aroma had a bit of dark bread; hints of chocolate and coffee; and metallic hops. The initial flavor was sweet and slightly bitter; while the finish was rather to heavily sweet, lightly bitter and slightly sour with an average duration. There was caramel malt, a little roasted malt, hints of chocolate and coffee, slight metallic hops and some dark bread. The light to medium body was syrupy with rather fizzy carbonation and a fairly crisp and slightly astringent finish that get a little bit metallic as it warmed.

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.

jgb9348 (4770) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2012
Deep dark cola coloured body with a frothy, two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of toasted malt, toffee, metal and a touch of coffee. Medium-bodied; Toasted malt flavour with a good nutty and earthy bite, some metal and alcohol soon afterwards and a sweet finish. Aftertaste is nice and robust - earthy and nutty, but still very sweet and potent. Overall, a very nice beer to break the monotony of the typical lagers you see here. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Pencil Supermarket in Phnom Penh, Cambodia earlier in the day for 3500Riel (US$0.90) sampled on 03-April-2012.

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.

tashi (32) - London, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2007
Chestnut brown with medium head; slightly soapy aroma. On the fizzy side, no heaviness (a plus given the climate) Honey-wheaty taste fruits up later but soon finishes. A refreshing beer, better cool than cold.
