Bottle. Pours a near-brown red-hued body with a medium light beige foamy short-lived head. Nose is light roasty caramel tones with hints of cereals and raisins. Taste is straight malty tones with hints of caramel. A bit watery mouthfeel. Too simple to convince.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the „4th Czeh Beerfestival”, Bp.
Dark brown/ruby colour with a medium, beige coloured head.
The smell is sweetish.
Sweet-sourish aroma dominated by caramel underpainted by light roastyness, texture is slick.
The finish is rather sweet escorted by a moderate roasty bitterness.
Overall rather on the sweet side, but not bad.

Draught at Uusi Apteekki, Turku. Dark reddish brown color. The aromas of dark bread, caramel and toffee. In the flavor dark bread and toffee is on the top with some caramelly background notes. Slightly sweet but not overly so. Quite nice breakfast beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very nice clear dark brown, sustained head, medium lacing. Somewhat thin-bodied and light. Smell has some woods/forest in addition to the usual caramel and cola. Flavors are moderately sweet (brown sugar) and light-to-moderate bitterness (grass). When cold, this is a very nice example of a mid-sweetness dunkel; not your overdone watery cola nut or waaay to sweet caramel variety. Balanced. Better than the sum of the parts and worth a revisit if better dunkels aren’t around. Bottle, very fresh as always from Piwoteka.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown with caramel head. Light caramel and toast notes, maybe a hint of butter. Fairly soft, with some light milk chocolate. Basically an easy-going sweetish dark beer, but in a good way.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ Ferdinanda. Thick dark brown with thick thick tan head. Aroma is surprisingly spicy and enticing. The malts smell really dry and like there is caraway here. Soft palate but high carbonation. Slight sourness does not detract but would prefer it not to be there. But overall it’s a nice balanced brew. I especially appreciate how it’s spicy and dark and not sweet.
