ElDesmadre (2507) - Mikołów, POLAND - SEP 13, 2011
Bottle. Reddish brown with a frothy but not durable head. Aroma is grainy malt, some light caramel, a faint fruitiness and herbal-hoppy elements. Quite high carbonation, moderately full body and slightly sourish, crisp taste with a moderate, durable herbal-hoppy bitterness. Good one!

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.

armando629 (2453) - 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...

Shaney (2425) - 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.

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.

heavy (2280) - Split, CROATIA - OCT 19, 2014
Jun ’14. On tap at homebrewer competition in Magic beer room, Zagreb. It poured clear copper body with medium sized head. Caramel and bread aroma, predominately malty. Hops were evident only in the flavor, as lightly bitter balance for toasted malty dominance. Caramel, dark fruits and a bit of bread were most pronounced flavors. Medium bodied with sweetish and herbal bitter finish. Very good polotmavy!
