Vaiz (4448) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2011
Bottle at home. Clear dark brown pour, thin off-white head. Aroma is slightly roasty, some sugary malts, molasses and licorice. Flavor is slightly bitter, slightly sweet, quite roasty and a bit bready. Overall quite nice.

jgb9348 (5907) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2012
Deep dark cola coloured body with a frothy, two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of toasted malt, toffee, metal and a touch of coffee. Medium-bodied; Toasted malt flavour with a good nutty and earthy bite, some metal and alcohol soon afterwards and a sweet finish. Aftertaste is nice and robust - earthy and nutty, but still very sweet and potent. Overall, a very nice beer to break the monotony of the typical lagers you see here. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Pencil Supermarket in Phnom Penh, Cambodia earlier in the day for 3500Riel (US$0.90) sampled on 03-April-2012.

XJR (3) - PHILIPPINES - MAY 4, 2013 does not count
A simple uplifting dark beer very suitable for balmy tropical nights as a change from a world of pale Asian lagers. It pours to light tan creamy head which falls away to a light lacing. The nose is one of scorched caramelized coffee bean and quite pleasant. It has a lighter than expected mouth-feel. The foretaste is reminiscent of burnt bread crust and light yeast which falls-off to an a brief after-taste of raisins and oranges.

Salmoniform (1272) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Dark copper brown hue with tan head that settled. Aroma is bready, grain, cereal, toffee, caramel. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet with a clean finish. Overall this beer is ok.

seymour (1929) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JUN 4, 2015
Enjoyed at a cool Thai restaurant in Little Five Points, Atlanta, Georgia. Poured from 12oz brown into a shaker glass, a clear copper colour with moderate offwhite foam, a litle lace. To be honest, the menu simply read "Beerlao" so I thought I was ordering just another macro pale lager. I was pleasantly surprised when it poured so dark and exhibited some rich malty aromas and flavours. Caramel, toffee, molasses, sweet but not sticky or cloying, with a measured hoppy balance. Light body, strong carbonation, nice round mouthfeel. It finished drier than I expected, but with some subtle fruity and caramelly aftertastes. Pretty good stuff, especially paired with spicy green curry. I would gladly order it again.

Blairgus (4340) - California, USA - APR 12, 2016
12 Apr 2016, bottle. Dark Amber, clear some steady bubbles. Nose is sweet, caramel syrup. Ned/thin body and moderately fizzy. Sweet, caramel, cherries, sticky sweet. Actually not as bad as I expected. Certainly a sweet Vienna lager but still rather nice.

egreener (11) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Found in 12 oz. bottle at an import bar in Hanoi, Vietnam. Pours dark with a creamy foam head that lingers. Malty, caramel, with subtle hint of fruit. Came back to the bar at least 2 more times for it because most of the commonly found beers in Vietnam are extremely light and slightly flavorless and I prefer a hearty darker brew. Same price as the light local stuff (35000 VND or $1.66 USD)

joeneugs (6105) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 20, 2014
12 oz. bottle. It pours a clear amber color with a disappearing off white head. The aroma is rather sweet with some caramel, nuts and corn. The corn stands out unfortunately. Smells a bit overly sweet too. The flavor is not too bad with more caramel and corn. It’s pretty sugary sweet actually. Lighter notes of bread and nuts with hints of sulfery lager yeast. Prickly carbonation. I can see how this would go well with some spicy Lao cuisine, but I don’t think I would order this again if I had other options.
