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 $

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.

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.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
A - Pours dark brown, almost black beer with a generous beige foamy head that slowly dissipates. Moderate lacing
S - Strong roasted malts. Chocolate and coffee notes. I can detect some yeast aroma.
T - Again roasted malts. Medium bitterness that stays for long. Maltiness is evident with some notes of caramel and toasted coffee.
M - In the mouth feels medium-bodied, medium carbonation
O - A very good Dark Ale with the right amount of bitterness to make it easy to drink and pretty enoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown colour. Hazy with a thin head. Sweet, sugary, caramelly aroma. Clean dark sugars and malts on the palate. Smooth, balanced, clean. This is well-made lager.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle. Pours a chestnut brown with a red hue which makes it look like cherry cola. Nice generous head too. The nose has nettley hops with just a hint of chocolate. The taste has toffee, smokey nuts and biscuity finish. The palate is medium bodied with a rich creamy texture and a fresh and tangy finish. Overall, this is great, like a black lager version of an English bitter.

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.
