This paper deals with the nonlinear phase field system
 $\begin{equation*} \begin{cases} \partial_t (\theta +\ell \varphi) - \Delta\theta = f & \mbox{in}\ \Omega\times(0, T), \\ \partial_t \varphi - \Delta\varphi + \xi + \pi(\varphi) = \ell \theta,\ \xi\in\beta(\varphi) & \mbox{in}\ \Omega\times(0, T) \end{cases} \end{equation*}$
in a general domain
 $\Omega\subseteq\mathbb{R}^{d}$
. Here
 $d \in \mathbb{N}$
,
 $T>0$
,
 $\ell>0$
,
 $f$
is a source term,
 $\beta$
is a maximal monotone graph and
 $\pi$
is a Lipschitz continuous function. We note that in the above system the nonlinearity
 $\beta+\pi$
replaces the derivative of a potential of double well type. Thus it turns out that the system is a generalization of the Caginalp phase field model and it has been studied by many authors in the case that
 $\Omega$
is a bounded domain. However, for unbounded domains the analysis of the system seems to be at an early stage. In this paper we study the existence of solutions by employing a time discretization scheme and passing to the limit as the time step
 $h$
goes to
 $0$
. In the limit procedure we face with the difficulty that the embedding
 $H^1(\Omega) \hookrightarrow L^2(\Omega)$
is not compact in the case of unbounded domains. Moreover, we can prove an interesting error estimate of order
 $h^{1/2}$
for the difference between continuous and discrete solutions.
