Botella de 500ml. Copa Pokal de Bernard. Color marrón muy oscuro con tintes caoba a contraluz y apariencia cristalina. Espuma blanca, tupida y con bastante buena retención. Aromas intensos de caramelo, maltas caramelo quemadas y maltas torrefactas redondeados por trazos de caramelos de menta con regaliz y leves recuerdos de madera. Sabores maltosos, dulces, de regaliz y herbáceos al primer sorbo. Cuerpo medio y carbonatación moderada. Textura densa que tiende a aguarse y paladar sedoso. En el intermedio leve toque de frutos oscuros y mermelada de ciruela con un amargor bajo, suficiente para equilibrar el dulzor de las maltas torrefactas. Final seco y afrutado con madera en el retrogusto. Sabrosa y de trago fácil. 500ml bottle. Bernard Footed Pokal glass. Very dark brown color, dark maroon to the light. Clear appearance. Beige froth, close crown, fairly good retention. Intense candy, burnt caramel malt & roasted malt aromas rounded by licorice&mint candy hues & slight woody memories. Maltous, sweet, licorice & herbal flavors at first sip. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dense to watery texture, silky mouthfeel. Light dark fruity touch –plum marmalade- & very low bitterness just to balance roasted malt sweetness. Dry fruity finish & woody aftertaste. Flavorful & easy drinkable.

50cl bottle @ home, gift from Csak a Jó Sör - Only Good Beer, Budapest, many thanks! Dark brown color, medium brownish mostly lasting good lacing head. Aroma moderated roasted malt, caramel, light chocolate and light coffee. Taste light to medium sweetness, light to medium bitterness. Medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation, medium lasting quite roasty bitter but lagerish finish. Easy to drink, light roasty beer, so far my best in this style.

Csapolt formában már volt szerencsém hozzá korábban, és azt kell, hogy mondjam, az üvegben éppoly kellemes italra találtam, mint amilyenre emlékeztem. Éjfekete színe természetesen pörkölt illatokat rejt magában, egy egészen különleges, stoutszerű aromát, melyben étcsokoládé és a kávé pirított jellege egy füves, savanykás karakterrel egészül ki. Élénk, dinamikus ízek jellemzik, melyek középpontjában leginkább a savanyú, sóskás jegyek állnak, figyelmünket legalábbis ezek kötik le leginkább, a pörkölt zamatok ehhez csatlakoznak az utóíz során. Különleges és komplex ízvilágban lehet részünk e pasztörizálatlan remekmű kóstolása során, mindenképpen üde színfolt a cseh barna sörök amúgy sem szegényes palettáján.

Pours very dark with a lot of head. Not a lot of carbonation. Smell is weak, but pleasant. Taste is gentle, very rich, little roasty with a slightly carbonated soir aftertaste. A very very good beer.

caramel, chocolate, butterscotch, earthy, black, clear, minimal head, white foam, tan foam, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour, light body, slick feel, average carbonation, bitter, long finish Overall pretty sweet and malty. Minimal foam leaves light lacing. Caramel like aromas, hint of chocolate. Slick mouthfeel (reminds almost of scotch ale). Thin bodied and refreshing. Light bitter sweet finish that lasts.
