Not as tasty as the Louisiane dark beer, but a good nutty and well rounded beer nonetheless.
On tap at Legend Beer Brewhouse, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma brings out crunchy herbal notes, toasted bready malt, and skunky vegetal notes. Flavour is along the same lines, with toasted nuts, some herbal notes and crunchy vegetables. Way too vegetal and somewhat stale. Drinkable. jmgreenuk (10327) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - APR 29, 2016
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. ALLOVATE (3087) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 8, 2016
Notes from 2015.Lunkie (1965) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2016
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)
Hop malt aroma. Dark brown colour with good head and lacing. Malt roast chocolate flavour. Smooth palate. vanvenlo (1923) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2016

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. olliejobbins (1577) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2014
