On tap at the Rutland and Derby, Leicester. Very pleasant Dunkel, with nice dark brown colour and frothy white head. Smells like cocoa and metal. Flavour is smooth, yet tasty lager mixed with choc and roast. Light, yet full of taste. Smooth in the mouth. A lovely draft choice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5 l fliptop.
Pours a dark brown/black/ruby colour and a quickly dropping pale brown head.
Crisp nose of coffee and some yeast, the taste’s sweet, the flavour’s vanilla/toffee-liked.
Roasty/caramell, yeasty aroma and a coffeebitterand dry finish.
The beers’ body’s medium, the texture’s kinda slick.
A good dunkel with a nice aroma.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml flip-top bottle purchased from bestillingsutvalget, Systembolaget. Gives a good shot followed by smoke when opened. Rocky, fawn coloured head over a rosewood body. Aroma of roasted, mid-sweet malts, maybe a tint of brittle caramel. Medium mouth filling with roasted malts and liquorice acidity. Rounded palate. Likeable (Tromsř, 09.01.2010).

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 25, 2010 Dark brown color, minimal head; mild aroma of powdered sugar, caramel and roasted malt; decent, not perfectly smooth mouthfeel, thin to medium body; flavor is (for a dark czech, anyway) only a little sweet, caramel and even surprisingly dry with roasted malt and mild bitterness in the end.
