Tap at Hostinec Richtar Jakub. Aroma caramel, ripe apples, light smoke(?). Creamy off-white head, clear cola colour. Taste like a second running of a cheap coffee. Watery, washing rag. Bitter astringent aftertaste. This one is a step in wrong direction.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown pour. Slight tan/khaki head that leaves a little lacing around. Malty aroma with some roasty backings. Little bit of a metallic presence noted. Sweet matliness with a nice coffee roasted flavor. The metallic presence shows up again in the aftertaste. Not annoying, but still there. Not a bad beer at all.

Bottle (BB Sep 06). Deep mahogany colour. Toasty, roasty, fruity caramel and some smooth malts. Fullish, with carbonation pulling it down, but refreshing body not too sweet with glimpses of hop in the finish. Some slight charred edges to the roast flavours. Tasty.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This beer is a great mighty brew. It reminds me a bit of Vierzehnheiligen Klosterbock; a malty sweet and perfectly well-balanced beer. Camamelly and bitter at the same time. Amazingly complex! And very cheap!!! 0.5 $
