3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark almost black in appearance. Taste was expected for a Tmavy Lezak. A fairly good flavor without a funky after taste that I experienced with quite a few of the local beers.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks kerenmk. Clear brown with a beige head. Aroma has mild roastiness with a light smoky note, malt, caramel, a bit of dark bread, a nutty hint and a faint diacetyl note. Slightly roasty flavor, slightly smoky, with caramel, some bread and a dry, more roasty, slightly bitter and herbal finish. Medium-bodied. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dirty-beige head, slowly collapsing over clear but dark-chestnut beer. Nose is sweet-chocolate & liquorice; further undergrowth, dark leaves, brown bread and rainwater. Rather dry, woody and again leafy flavours, with an undercurrent of sweet bread-and-chocolate. Rather good balance, as there is also a touch of acidity. Warming up, just a tad too much caramelly sweetness welling up. Very present carbonation, spritzy. Medium bodied at best, creamy head thanks to its stability. More dry than bitterish. Surprisingly good tmavý, certainly seen the deplorably poor polotmavý. Thanks, Peter!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Color - dark brown, almost black, to light - opaque. Foam = 4 - hearty, medium firmness, color cream. Aroma = 4.5 - rich, black patent malt, coffee, caramel, chocolate, hops are not felt. Taste = 4.5 - full body, good burnt bitterness, dry (taste like dry stouts), and hints of coffee, light sweetness in the aftertaste. Indeed, a great dunkel.
