Roasted malts are quite apparent in the nose with some underlying grainy sweet malts. Opaque black body is topped by a decent tan head that recedes to cover with some nice lacing. Flavour is very roasty with the promised sweet undertone and plenty of nutty and earthy notes. Medium body has moderate carbonation. Drinkable for certain, but kind of unremarkable. Tulip glass. Can. Thanks, Josh!

Rather restrained. Gift from friend. Aroma is a faint but pleasant maltiness. I did not detect much hoppiness in the aroma, rather a chocolate note. More chocolate notes in the flavour, with ín bietjie toffee. Malty finish

33cl can (8%) in Siem Reap. Pours black with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel and alcohol with hints of spices and liquorice. Sweet with a hint of bitterness in the finish. Drinkable, and better than most beers from Cambodia, but a bit disappointing. (2012-05-03)

This is surprisingly good for a foreign extra stout made in Cambodia. If you hang out with the super rich there this is the beer they drink. The alcohol is masked fairly well, the roast and sweetness KIND of balances... Iíll rate this like any other beer, but really I think itís good considering where it comes from (and where I lived for five years).

June 2010: My parents have just returned from a 93 Day, World Cruise, from Southampton to Southampton, spending my inheritance, not that I was expecting a huge bequest coming my way one day soon. I was however expecting Dad to bring me back a few beers, all I got was one can, this!
330ml can, I poured it into a Westmalle chalice (most likely the first time this beer has been in such a glass?). It looked fine, lovely dark hue to it and a good tan coloured head, sadly the head soon became a thin collar and left no lacing as the beer sank down the glass.
The smell was of burnt/roasted ground coffee, as was the taste. The beer began to have hints of liqurice within the flavours as it warmed up, but the coffee held firm throughout the tasteing and was the overiding flavour.
I thought the beer over carbonated, to fizzy for a stout really and lacking a little in body strenght and thickness.
