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!

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2009 First rating
(Draught at Dum Vina u Zavojy, Praha - though bloody expensive!)
Served as "Cerny Hora Granat 12 tmavy lezak". Very dark brown color, fluffy lasting brown head. Acidic malty scent. Acidic metalliic malty taste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness. Paid 70 kcz for a 30 cl draught beer, the second most expensive beer for me ever in Prague. It wasn’t worth it... At least it gets a new rating.
Draught at Cernohorska pivnice in Brno on May 18, 2009
Slight bit hazy dark copper to brown color, fluffy light brown head. Malty and huge butterscotch cent. Butterscotch, malty, sweet taste. A bit thin mouthfeel, rather low co2. Low bitterness. Herbal hoppy aftertaste.

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.

Medium beige head. Beautiful dark red body. Malty strawy raisiny aroma with roasty wild berry notes. Dry-sweetish strawy roasty papery taste with raisiny wooden notes. Harmonic and balanced.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap in a cellar bar in Prague.
Very dark beer, beige head.
Roasted malt, tast, bread crust when you forgot the bread in the overn for five minutes too long. A sooty sourness that plays around with sweet malt. Truly great.
