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.

Pretty good stuff actually and weighs in at a surprisingly strong 6.5%. Good roasty character with a layer of chocolate. I can ’feel’the pale lager base but there’s no denying a very honest adherence to a Schwarzbier style. The abv helps fill the palate out. More than a handful of Aussie boutiques can make this style as this example.

Ibrew2or3 (6782) - 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.

bhensonb (10764) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Bottle from Half Time. Pours dark copper with a slight fizzy beige head. Aroma is noble hop with some underlying lightly roast malt. Med minus body. Flavor is slightly sweet, has just a little grassiness, and has significant roast malt. There also seems to be some rather unique flavor - but maybe that’s part of the hop bill. Relatively light, fairly tasty. Head and shoulders above the typical pale lagers that seem to abound in the hotter climes.

kiwianer (3317) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 9, 2012
The head is medium the color dark brown. It smells darkmalty, grassy, a bit alcoholic. Taste is mild, darkmalty, malty-aromatic a little bit alcoholic-raisin. Mild but not bad. 10/11/11/11/12/11

JakobBKK (11) - Bangkok, THAILAND - NOV 3, 2012
Pours a dark brown with a small head and little lacing. Aromas are sweet, caramel and malt. The taste is a caramel and very little bitterness. All in all a decent dark beer that is very easy to drink. By far one of the best beers in Southeast Asia!

chinchill (1700) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 21, 2012
undated 330 ml bottle. Pours clear dark brown with a large tan white head that has moderate duration. Very sweet aroma of roasted malts, caramel and rice. Also has a sweet and roasty flavor, but not nearly as sweet as the aroma suggests. Medium body with medium carbonation. O: Interesting and better than expected.

Hanuta06 (319) - Washington, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Serving: from bottle--purchased at The Beer Junction. Aroma: peach. Appearance: small, frothy, light-brown, initial head with good lacing and mostly diminishing longevity. Clear, dark-red/light-brown body. Taste: lightly sweet, caramel initial flavor and moderately sweet finish with long duration. Palate: medium bodied with oily texture and lively carbonation. Overall: not bad, but nothing memorable.
