Not as tasty as the Louisiane dark beer, but a good nutty and well rounded beer nonetheless.

on tap at the brewery bar in hanoi, sitting out on the balcony. more proof that it’s easier to make a drinkable dark lager than a pale one. just a steady dark brown with a thin cream head; light aroma of stewed stonefruit; somewhat thin and watery with hints of rye and cocoa powder. drinkable enough

On tap at Legend bar, Hanoi. A dark brown colour with a creamy, off-white head. An aroma of malt, coffee and caramel. The taste is medium sweet and light salty. A medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation and a medium long finish.

Dark brown with some haze. The aroma is toasty with light molasses and nuts. Chewy sweet malts, vaguely nut/molasses oriented. Finishes relatively dry for the style.

Draft @wpub. Very dark brown with red tint in light. Gentle aroma is malty with huskiness in the end and some plummy fruit in the middle. Quaffable palate. Medium carbonation is soft but lively. A little husky but has solid genuine malty goodness. A dry but slightly burnt finish. Nice dry dunkel.

I ate some yellow chili before this :) Dark nut brown color, steady creamy beige head, some lace. Aroma of brewing mash and chocolate. Flavor is very chocolaty with toasted malts in the aftertaste. Caramelly, fizzy, Czech-type dunkel.
