imdownthepub (11661) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2006
On tap at The Pivni Galerie, Prague, 500ml, filtered. Chestnutty colour with white head, a pretty looking beer. Thin beer, but with a certain smokiness and fruitiness, rather plummy. However there is a surose sweetness that dominates the beer and overall it is too thin to be overly interesting.

pivnizub (9482) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 10, 2006
Bottled (@ PivniGaleriePraha): Ruby-amber coloured, medium-sized fluffy tanned head, lacing and slowly collapsing; sweet dark-malty, caramelly nose with a distinctive touch of toasted malt; sweet (malty) flavour, surprisingly full bodied, velvet MF; longer sweet-caramelly finish with a delicate bitterness in the very end. A bit on the sweet side, but all in all a very pleasant and decent Dunkles !

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 2, 2006
Magnificent looking in the glass, a very dark clear amber, with a very fluffy off-white head. Great lacing and retention. Aroma is quite strong, of floral hops with some slight caramel and chocolate. The flavours are all caramel, with some slight hop flavours and a slightly metallic finish. Another good, if unexciting dark lager from the Czechs.
