3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
[bottle from Galerie Pivni]
Dark orange-brown, clear, fizzy, clingy, little islandy patches of white. Plenty of toasted malt fills the nose combined with even some smokiness and a nice sour, burnt aroma. Limited hops aroma. Sweet and smooth coffee malt flavour with significant bitterness which lasts in conjunction with the coffee flavour throughout. Notes of mint. Medium body, a bit mouth coating, moderate carbonation.

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.

Bottle. I remember tasting this first in Sternberk,CZ. Pours deep brown with an appealing red when held to the light. Nice beige head also. Light malty aroma. Flavour is light grassy hay hops and a touch of chocolate/caramel. Refreshing and easy drinking. Delicious.

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 $

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pitch black color. Smells malty, very reserved, with hints of sweet coffee. Starts roasted malty, very recent and slightly bitter aftertaste. It has a really strong intense flavor, especially in the middle part is the aftertaste strong coffee-like.
