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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

0.5 L bottle from Pivovarsky Klub, Praha. Two fingers of dense, yellow shaded, blond head. Body is sparkling, bright ruby brown. Moderate aroma of dryish, lightly toasted malts. Some dusty and metallic hops. Taste is medium sweet, light malty, with a slight astringent accent, apperantly from the herbs added. A faint sourness and some noticable bittering hops underneath. Light to medium body strenght. Lively mouthfeel. Dryish, herbal, mild hop bitter ending.

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottled) Clear, reddish amber color with almost no head. Somewhat stuffy, herby aroma with dark fruit hints. Sweet, caramely-malty, slightly roasty flavor with cherries and ashiness. Light to medium-bodied, a bit thin, quite low-carbonated palate. A bit strange brew, but not very interesting.

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
