(Draught at Ferdinanda, Prague, 23 July 2008) Dark ruby colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, toasty nose with spicy hints of wild berries. Malty, spicy taste with notes of wild berries, caramel and spicy hops in the finish. Medium body, rather sweet. Interesting and drinkable.

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.

Czech beer that actually has some flavor. It’s a bit bitter, malty and a bit hoppy. The yeast is present as well. Decent.
