abemorsten (2900) - Mosterřy, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2010
Tap @ Ferdinanda, Prague. Clear orange with two fingers thick creamy tanned head. Excellent lacing. Butterscotch, caramel, toffee in the aroma. Sweet and bitter flavors in a good balance with some alcohol. Medium body. Syrupy texture. Nice palate.

Embrouille (2830) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 26, 2009
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!

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2006
Draught @ Hotel Antygl, Sumava. Mid brown. Noce light coffee and toasty malts. Light sweetness and slight herby bitterness to balance. Major prob was excess fizziness ruining the soft flavours, without that it could have been very good.

Shaney (2427) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 12, 2013
Rotbraunes, klares Dunkles mit verhältnismäßig wenig weißen Schaum. Karamellmalzaroma mit duftigem, floralen Hopfen. Frischer Antrunk, etwas dünn. Wunderbare Balance zwischen malzaromatischem Beginn und zartbitteren Abgang, dazwischen irgendwo auch feine Fruchtnoten. Ein Zechbier.

armando629 (2415) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 21, 2009
Deep amber-reddish colored body with a nice off white-tan head. Aroma of toasted malt and caramel, some floral notes of hop. Smooth mouthfeel with a nice vienna character like tosted caramel, toffee, some sweet grains. Fine moderated and balanced hop, some fruity tastes in the finish. Correct one, i could sip it for hours with buddies...

MarcoDL (2377) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2013
Czech beer that actually has some flavor. It’s a bit bitter, malty and a bit hoppy. The yeast is present as well. Decent.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUL 6, 2003
Bottled.Deep amber colour with red hue, big burnt sugar flavour. I’ve had this style before and liked it. It takes a little bit of time to get into but then you begin to enjoy it after a while. Long palate and flavour, the develops in the mouth. Didn’t taste anything like 13%....b/c that was the degrees plato. Thanx Rauchbier.
