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!

*from old note* Relatively good black lager. Lots of roasted coffee, a little chocolate. A little bit of metal in the aftertaste, which lowers the rating a little bit.

Pours like an Irish coffee not much in the way of aroma tastes pleasant enough if a little unexciting digestive biscuit quote a dry short finish
