Very sweet alcohol and light woody nose. Reddish brown pour. Little burnt butter head. Very minerally and astringent. Molases, pepper, and coffee. I felt strangely energized and strong after trying this stout. Just ask IPFreely or Radek, I lifted mr_kimchee over my head after just a couple of sips. Remarkable.

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

Can in Siem Reap. Great story went along with this one. I bought the beer from a street vendor. Cambodia uses real (as in Real Madrid), their own printed money, for small amounts like change in lieu of coins. But the real currency of Cambodia is the US dollar! So I asked how much it was, and I gave her the money, and then sat down to eat some street food and drink my pretty damn good stout out of a can. Then about 10 minutes later walks over with a larger man who speaks English fairly well and he says, "She say you donít pay the money. She charge you wrong price."
I said, "What? She figured this out just now? I paid for that 10 minutes ago."
"She does not speak English so could not tell you the right price."
"Bullshit, you donít need to know fucking English to count money and see if itís enough! Iím not paying any more money." And after yelling at them both for 3-4 minutes, they left and I could enjoy my goddamn Khmer stout in a can.

33cl can. Thank you tderoeck! This is surprisingly good. Pours dark black with solid beige head. Smells of coffee, sugar, soy sauce, and roasted malt. Light body with soft carb. Tasted to me of lots of coffee and toffee. Would drink again.

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.

i had to manuever around a bit to find this one as well but it can and was done. not a surprise brewed by carlsberg, i think all their beers are or heineken. this one throws you a bit because of the sea of pale lagers so it was good change. sweet malty character with a charred roased coffee, choc flavor, had no idea their was so much alcohol. no alcohol overtones really at all.

320 ml tins bought at roadside places in Cambodia. It may be that this is the same beer as Angkor Extra Stout but pasteurised for canning and then allowed out to rot in the heat, wherever sold. Either way it lacks several notches of excellence in comparison and has rough edges. Interesting advertising claims though.

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)
