3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.5L bottle from U Medvidku, best by 10/27/2011. The pour yields a dark reddish-chestnut body with a moderate head of khaki foam. The head settles to a thin, swirly film with a pronounced outer ring. Rounded spots of wet lace are scattered about the glass. The nose is classic dunkel/tmave, showing excellent balance between notes of crusty bread, moist pumpernickel, dry chocolate roast, and sweet rising dough. Flavors mirror the nose, simple yet tasty and impressively balanced, showing notes of dark bread, baking dough sugars, dry chocolate, and yeast. The palate is medium-plus in stature, smooth, and balanced. Some drying roast keeps it from going overly sugary. There’s a slightly papery, oxidized quality that actually enhances palatability. Overall, it’s damn good stuff, even in the bottle. One of the better dark brews that I had from the Czech Republic. O course, it didn’t hurt to drink it as I sailed along the Danube and through the Wachau Gorge between Melk and Krems.
