UPDATED: JUN 28, 2010 Bangkok: Chestnut colour, hazy with cherrywood highlights. Toasty aroma with hints of peanut skins and dark chocolate. Flavour is largely toasty with faint nutty notes, a little woodiness. Body is thin for style, which allows the carbonation to be too aggressive and, along with the freezing serving temperature, to wipe out some of the flavours. Quick, off-dry finish. 7-3-6-3-12 = 3.1
Singapore: Rich chocolatey dark brown colour and thin head. Lightly chocolatey aroma with toasty notes. Thin, only vague dark malts. 7-4-5-2-12 = 3.0

Sampled draught at the brewpub.
Dark brown and cloudy with small beige head. Very roasty. Medium- light bodied with clean soft maltiness. Mild and lightly fruity. No trace of hops or bitterness.

A steam cloud rises over almost chocolate, roasted malt...In this field, berries grow out of the mud...Through this crowd hops rise, authentic but frowning...

Tap. I stumbled into their 3rd anniversary celebration with a big act on stage and a full house. This place is huge! The Dunkel was a muddy brown with a foamy light brown head. Roasted malt, slightly sweet, smooth, some chocolate. Aroma was heavy on the malt and sweet.
