Ferris (13850) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 12, 2017
Draft - Dark caramel notes. Deep brown with a decent light brown head. Molasses and malty sweetness with a touch of raisin. Dark bready notes and some reasonable complexity. Solid.

jmgreenuk (8543) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - APR 29, 2016
Tap at the brewpub. Poured a hazy reddish brown with a frothy off white head and a little broke lace. The aroma is light toasty caramel malt. The flavour is moderate to light sweet with a smooth malt, light fruit, hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Really rather good and better than anticipated.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4857) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 21, 2015
Dark - cola brown with a dense light beige head. Nobles hops & light chocolate malts in the aroma. Soft carbonation on a med-light body. The taste is tangy chocolate syrup or fudge with a crisp finish. Another nice beer from Hoa Vien, these guys know what they are doing.

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 (754) - 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..
