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

Tap at the brewpub. Poured a hazy reddish brown with a thin off white head. The aroma is sweet caramel malt, light smoke. The flavour is light sweet with a light floral hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Notes from 2015.
Draft at the Coffee House Restaurant, Hanoi.
Cola brown and opaque asides a glimmer of light in the very shallows. Proud and resilient off-white foam laces well. Smoke, earth, tar and molasses on the nose - another high point but it was down hill from there. Buttery but lean on the palate. Sticky roasted malt jars and is like pure burnt treacle and blackstrap. Carbonation is light and spritzy. Woody with a touch of ash and smoke in the linger to try to bring it back. Not off-putting just off-balanced. Much preferred the Pilsener over this one! (5 Dinh Tien Hoang, Hanoi, Vietnam)

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.
