Outstanding dark beer. Heavy molasses and malt flavor. Slight twist of burning sugar, chocolate and some bitterness on the aftertaste with licorice tones. Head was creamy, but not overly so. Was able to have the hard to find Grolsch popper top in Czech Republic. Easily one of the best dark beer in the Czech Republic. Purchased for 60 Krowns in super grocery store (about $1.50 US). Gotts love those currency exchanges!

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.

CanCrusher (599) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle 0,50L. Clear, ruby brown colour with big light brown, frothy head. Aroma of roasted malts, strong coffee and dark chocolate. Taste starts light bitter with strong coffee note and finish moderate bitter. Medium body, watery texture and soft carbonation. Way better than most of the Czech and German dunkels, I’ve tried...

Marcius (194) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - MAY 11, 2014
Appearance with black color and high head of foam. Aroma of roasting and baking. On the palate, the bitterness and strong body make this a very complex beer. I did enjoy it!
