larsga (6206) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 8, 2009
Biggish creamy beige-brown shiny lasting head. Lovely brown body with carbonation. Malty spicy roasty aroma with roasted almond notes. Sweetish spicy roasty licorice taste with grassy hop notes. Good harmony and balance. Mid-bodied. Dry watery roasty dusty earthy aftertaste. Spicy roasty taste lingers for a long time. Nice, and highly drinkable. (0.4l bottle, U Ferdinanda, Prague.)

armando629 (2408) - 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 (2428) - 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.

Big head though beer smell, lace, and nice reddish dark colour. Well malted. Carbonation on the aggressive side. Overall bold taste, with some herbal addition. There is a bit of yeast and wheat in the taste. Good finish.A good Vienna, thanks to Jan Biegeman

pivnizub (8853) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2006
Bottle: Amber coloured, mid-sized fluffy head, slowly diminishing; sweet-malty, caramelly nose with a tinge of herbal hops; sweetish flavour, medium ti full bodied; first sweet-malty finish, later a slightly bitter aftertaste. Well drinkable ! Why is this beer called "Seven bullets" (Sedm kuli) ? The austrian heir to the throne Ferdinand d’Este, who lived to the year 1914 near Benesov, was killed in Sarajevo by seven bullets. This was the beginning of WW I !
