2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at the brewpub in Singapore
Dark brown color. More than roasty, chocolate or nutty character, these dark malts give a dusty character to the beer; the bitterness is rather low.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown color with small creamy off-white head. Sweetish and lemony hoppy aroma. Starts a bit sour with creamy mouthfeel then when warms up comes very strong flavor of milk chocolate. You could almost call this "chocolate stout" (but being a lager, not).

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

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...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught (sampled) at the brewpub in Singapore on July 9, 2013.
Hazy dark brown color, brown head. Sweet, malty, grainy, hints of toffee scent. Malty, dry taste. Dry, mineral, sand like aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, medium high bitterness.
Swedish saying "Inte mycket att hänga i julgranen" suits this one rather well, not bad, clean and all, but where’s the life and charcter of the beer?

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft @ Singapore brewpub. Muddy brown with orange tint and a stable head. Immature dark malt aroma is husky but I don’t mind that. Soft palate is thick and yeasty. Remains husky but nice nonetheless with sweetish bread malt character.
