4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5l bottle courtesy of and shared with ogivlado (thanks!)
Poured a dark brown-red colour with a medium sized beige head that went away slowly. Grainy nose, notes of caramel and raisins. The taste isn’t far off, being grainy, caramelly and sweetish... dark malts. Not all that hoppy...almost at all. Says it’s brewed with some herbs but there’s nothing that would reveal their presence except (in my mind) maybe for a vague, just kinda herbal chalkiness. It’s still a good dunkel or vienna, not too sweet.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very inviting amber/redish color with a rocky head. Not much aroma. Can't put my finger on the taste - is it grassy? Somewhat sweet with tones of caramel.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled. Deep bronze red, poor head and condition. Malt wortlike aromas with some woody vinegar notes towards the end. Vaguely dunkle like but a fruity vinegar note still noticable in the mouth. Worty sweet finish does it few favours

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2006 Amber of color, nice cloudy head. sweet aroma of caramel and sweets, hints of old apples. Stille the sense of old apples in the taste combined with hops and the dry taste of nutts.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dość dobre piwo treściwe i mocno słodowe. Mało goryczki, bąbelki i gaz trochę utrudniają degustację, ale warto pokosztować to wiedeńskie w stylu piwo pochodzące z Czech

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled 50cl. Courtesy of Quack-Duck. It pours a clear amber beer. Malty nose with hints of raisins. Quite a lot of vinegar presence in the taste- very unusual. Strange. Cloying after a few sips. Notes of raisins showing up again. Unpleasant acidic metallic finish. Not my kind of beer. Thanks Quack-Duck!
