Bottle; 9th Polotmavy rating, with huge props to Nikos!! Pours clear orange amber, medium creamy beige head, dissipates leaving decent residual and lacing. Aroma is roast, caramel, toffee, grass. Flavor is light plus sweet, light bitter, lots of caramel, grassy hops, hints of smoke and roast. Medium body, low acidity. Good enough.

BlackHaddock (6087) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2014
3rd Oct 2014, on tap in Ferdinanda, Prague: by far their best beer on offer that evening, the other three being towards the bland and uninteresting types of beer challenges. This 7 Bullets brew came in lovely 0.4 litre vase shaped glasses with the beers name and logo on them. We had three each of these as we really took to the sweetness and flavours. Pours a pleasant deep amber with a good sized white head that did try to stay but failed somewhat. Aroma was of malts, semi-sweet caramel, dark fruits and a toffee hint in the background. The taste would too sweet for some but my wife and I really took to it. So much more interesting flavour wise than the Pilsner/lager/dunkels we had tried before this brew. Light bitterness finished each sip off nicely and primed your taste buds for the next mouthful. One of the best beers we had in our beery week in Prague.

JK (5632) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 26, 2006
One of the highlights of my Czech beer experience, and the beer that changed my mind about the Vienna style. This beer is very dark red. It has a thick head that lacesthe glass and never completely fades. Aroma has caramel, malt, fruit, and hops. Malt flavor with tannic red wine; dry like wine with a similar mouthfeel. Excellent palate. Very good.

ClubGonzo (5359) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 26, 2014
Bottle @ hotel room in Prague. Pours a clear bronze brown body with a medium creamy off-white head. Great looks on this one. Aroma is caramel, raisins, mild nuts and hints of grains. Taste is caramel, bread, nuts, grains and hints of bitter herbs and straw. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. A very solid and super-drinkable Czech dunkel.

AshtonMcCobb (5036) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 17, 2015
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - deep caramel with a nicely proportioned head. Nose - mainly caramel with a touch of malt and a hint of hazelnuts. Taste - caramel going into honey. Tangy orange. Very sweet. Palate - medium bodied with a big tangy texture and a long tangy finish which is just a bit too sweet. Overall - enjoyable but too sweet.
