had a half litre of this on my last night in Vietnam at their brewpub in Hanoi. Wish I had visited the place earlier as it was definitely the best of any I visited. Anyway, the beer... poured a slightly hazy dark brown with thin head that doesn’t last. nutty malty aroma. taste is very nice. roasted malts, caramel and nuts with a slightly yeasty finish. very nice.

Jamedra (611) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 21, 2013
Pípa, Slunce ve skle, Plzeň. Aroma je příjemně kávové v pozadí je znát sladký banán. Pěna je barvy moccacina, vysoká, jemná a držící. Barva samotného piva je temně hnědá. V chuti piva je znát káva, kakao a hořká čokoláda, finiš je slabší kávově hořký, drží se jen lehce na jazyku. Toto tmavé pivo je velice chutné, unikátní a zároveň dobře pitelné.

Well presented beer with decent foam, dark and black with a nice malty nose, was expecting a little more body this version seems a little thin, flavour is quite nice, dark bread with some spicyness, molasses etc..

30cl draft at the brewpub in HCMC. Dark brown with a nice, but disappearing beige head. Aroma of lightly roasted malt with hints of dark chocolate.Sweet and malty with a fairly dry and bitter finish. Lightly hopped. Very well balanced. Very nice! Tasty and refreshing! (2012-05-12)

On tap at the Saigon brewpub. Nice beige head on top of the dark brown beer. Caramel aroma, slightly burnt caramel in the mouth. Sweetish and watery, but drinkable.

on tap at the brewery in ho chi minh. actually looked like a czech dark - rich brown with a medium head; aroma of stale cola and cleaning products; some light nutty malts and thin tinny bitterness; not awful but a good reminder of how spoilt i am at home

@ HCMC This is a great option for a tasty beer in Vietnam, since they are hard to come by. Taste was of roasted malts with strong coffee and chocolate notes. Nice head and somewhat creamy on the palate.
