330ml can, Singapore version. Pours black with tan head that doesn't last. Plum, toast, coffee, more toast, an interesting sweet fruitiness that I can't place. Quite light bodied for the style, but it's not a bad thing given the climate. Nice. czlowiekwiadro (1229) - POLAND - OCT 31, 2017

6% can from a Singapore convenience store. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin light tan head. The aroma is caramel roasty malt, liqourice hop. The flavor is liqourice bitter, light sweet with a dry roasty malt, liqourice hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. luttonm (6957) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2017
Can in Seattle. Sri Lanka version. (I also can’t figure out why these are separate entries). Huge thanks to MacDowall for bringing this from Sri Lanka and giving it to me in Belgrade. Tan foam, malty brown body, fairly extract looking. Bitter, almost burnt licorice flavor to the aroma. Dry, fairly bitter. Seems like dry herbs. Some dark cherry fruitiness. Bitter, dry cardboard, bitter chocolate. Pretty impressive in its own way. andrewje41 (4521) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - AUG 3, 2017
16 oz can poured, thanks to Matt. Sri Lanka version, but still not sure why the entries are separate. Dark brown pour, thin fizz head. Odd aroma, sweet, milky, dark malt. Flavor is more sweetalts, watery chocolate, cool finish. Strange, but could be much worse. Interesting beer for sure.

330mL can, Cambodian version (8%), pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma brings out moderate roast, some vegetal character, and some oats. Flavour is similar, with moderate roast, oats, cola and a little soy sauce. Finishes oaty and soy-like. Nothing overly complex or smooth, as the carbonation is a bit high and the body is a bit thin. It’s okay. Grumbo (4262) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2017

Medium to heavy sweetness, very light bitterness. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. alex_leit (5247) - Minsk, BELARUS - JUN 14, 2017

From old tasting notes. Pours an opaque black color topped by a huge foamy brown head. Big sweet roasted malt nose. Mildly sweet roasted mal upfront. Notes of milk chocolate and coffee in middle. Notes of burnt caramel and coffee with spicy hops in finish. Decent. fkoolen (1401) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2017
