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 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

Aroma: molasses, caramel, coffee, earthy; Appearance: dark brown, small frothy head; Taste: medium bitterness, medium sourness, slight sweetness; Palate: bitter finish, medium body, thick texture, average carbonation
Well-rounded malty and yeasty Schwarzbier. Way better than the popular ones.

Many thanks to my Secret Santa :). The nose is great burned bread. The beer starts intense smooth roasted. Dry, bitter chocolate, milky espresso. Great. A smooth bitterness comes in and let the beer become even more round and great. Very dry, liquorice without sweetness, roasted chocolate malt, moderate bitter. Great!!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Veltins in Tbilisi, Georgia. Brownish black colour with a mahogany hue. Head thick and creamy, good retention and some lacing. Aroma is very nice: mildly roasty, with notes of red berries, nuts and black bread, slightly caramelly. Taste is similar with mild roastiness most present, balancing nicely with the sweeter tones of subtle red berries and nuts, and faint bitterness. Later on a tiny metallic tingle. Very smooth and soft on the palate. Carbonation present but rather discreet; body medium; finishes with a dryish ashy sensation. This is quality stuff. Never had it in bottle though.

Bottle 0,5l. Aroma is dark malt, toasted, caramel. Clear, dark brown colored, medium carbonated beer. Flavor is full and dry. Toasted, dark, caramel malt dominate, little yeasty tones, slightly sour, slightly bitter. Aftertaste is grainy and bitter.
Very well made dark lager, very tasteful.
