2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at the brewery, badly served, too fizzy and too cold.
This influenced my perceptions and rating.
Aroma: chocolate, toast, caramel
Appearance: brown/black color, quite clear
Taste: Medium sweetness, then bitter for malts and hops, light sourness
Palate: Medium body

Not as bitter or heavy as a stout or porter, but a lovely burnt finish and surprisingly light and tasty.

The best beer from Louisiane Brewhouse. It is not a fantastic beer, but given that you have been travelling around SE Asia and drinking lager-close-to-water, this is a really good beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A clear dark brown colored beer, with a beige head. The aroma of roasted malts notes of coffee and chocolate. The taste is gentle bitter, a bit dry, rosted malts with chocolate notes. The aftertaste of bitter hints of sweet.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown with golden-brown accents. Chocolatey aroma with light toast is almost porterish. Rich chocolatey character is soft, sweet and smooth. Nice light acidic bit at the end makes this very moreish. Might be Vietnam’s best brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2009 Draft @ brewpub. Highlight of the Louisiane portfolio. Opaque dark brown, glowing mahogany with thick tan head. Clean, chocolate aroma has cola, asphalt, more chocolate, coffee, and wood. Clean, easy-going and mild carbonation. High drinkability. flavors beat the aromas with lots of mocha cake but dry, not sweet. Coal, nicely roasted coffee. Toasty and tasty. Pint after pint it gets better and better. Quaffable dry dunkel with excellent chocolate flavors. Revisiting proves this a winner.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Louisiane Brewhouse, Nha Trang. Appears dark brown with a creamy light brown head. Roasted malts, dark bitter chocolate, coffee and vegemite (must be an Aussie brewer). Smooth and bitter finish. The pick of the bunch from this brewer.
