3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap in Hanoi. Dunkel is pitch black with mahoganey highlights and a
1cm head of beige foam. The aroma is syrupy, cocoa fudge.
Similar raspy carbonation and light body as the lager. The taste
is a rich fudge caramel. Pretty good.

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

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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

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.
