Dark brown/black in color, minimal tan head. This is a nice roasty flavored stout, typical chocolate and coffee flavors. Minimal hops. Alcohol is not noticeable in flavor. A great alternative to ABC stout (which is horrible) when in Cambodia.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Picked up at an off-license in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Midnight brown and hazy in the shallows. Creamy ring upon the meniscus is tannish and holds. Aroma is of heavy roasted malts, coffee bean, topsoil, peat and mulch with hints of burnt peanut husk and oak. Massive molasses hit on the palate saw my tongue squirm and squander. Body is medium-light with soft carbonation. Length is rusty nails and a touch of blood tannic. Sends shivers down the spine. Saving grace is aniseed and roasted carob notes that linger long. Alcohol is well masked, also a positive I suppose. A hard one to enjoy. (33cL can, BB 11/08/16, 322, Phnom Penh)

330ml can bought in siem real. Pours jet black with no head. Aroma is spice, twiglets, Marmite and coffee. Taste is good. Quite a thin mouth feel but very drinkable as with all these Cambodian stouts. Licorice, soy sauce, a dry finish. Nice.

Do you want to hear something funny? This is a pretty good stout. Most SE Asian beers set you up to be something watery and to be drank ice cold.
This stout is dark black, but only drank from a can so I cannot comment on the head or lacing. Roasted malt aroma with a hint of coffee. Hint of sweet up front. Smooth, medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Medium roasty finish.

Somehow this is a touch better than the Angkor Extra Stout brewed by the same people. I see this more often than the AES too.

Lattina 33cl in un ristorante a Battambang.
Scura con schiuma evanescente.
Un po' di tostatura, corpo un po' leggero, amara sul finale.
Considerando che siamo in Cambogia non male davvero.

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 ’n bietjie toffee. Malty finish
