2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from the brewery. Pours dark brown color with barely any head. Aroma is malt, caramel and plum. Taste is malt, caramel and coffee but also wood and pepper (huh?). Interesting beer in the way it’s quite different than other dunkels, but the taste just doesn’t fit me.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the brewpub. Not bad, but not very interesting either. Dark colour, sweet and fruity taste, sweetish aroma. Perhaps I was so put off by the absolutely atrocious Zlaty Kun, that I couldn’t enjoy this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
1l petka bought at the brewery. Hazy dark brown colour, tiny beige head. Aroma of smoked malt. Full-bodied, intensive malty base with good smoke flavours, hints of caramel, toffee, roasted malts and some shy hopy in the finish. The beer is intensively smokey, I would classify it as a smoked. Smooth and creamy texture, probably due to the fine carbonation.
A smoked beer disguised as 18° special - what a lovely surprise from Beroun!

Plastic bottle, bought at the brewery. Fruity aroma, hint of sweet caramel and pepper. Hazy dark brown colour. The flavour has a good roasted note, a bit nutty. The finish is drier with some barley bitterness. Starts off good, finishes mediocre.
