2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
PET bottle. Very dark brown, small but firm head. Light coffee aroma, Sweet and very caramelly with some molasses. More full fodied than expected from a 13° with plenty of buttery rounded malt. Almost no bitterness. The molasses in combination with excessive sweetness gets a bit much.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a PET bottle shared out by someone in the bus (thanks whoever you were!)
Probably a bit too warm for a fair rating.... Poured a unfiltered darker brown body with an off white head. A roasty, slightly stale nose of coffee. Ok. A light, roasty taste with some nice maltiness, caramel and background hop. A passable dunkel with a damn nice label.

On tap in Beraun: Chestnut-amber coloured, mid-sized, quite stable sandy head, shy dark-malty, caramelly aroma with the faintest traces of burnt malt, moderate bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied, traces of coffee in the shy sweetish finisk. O.K., not bad.........

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2012 this was a weird brewery to stumble upon, inside an abandoned factory lot. this tmave was the first beer we tried there and was a real treat to the eyes. pitch black with a lasting head. remarkably well-balanced. very full hops and lasting bitterness comes just at the right time when the full vegemite maltiness threatens to become too much. not far from prague for those considering a beer trip there. re-rate - this has gone way downhill

Unfiltered tmave, served at the brewery by a coal-smeared dude with bikie beard and gumboots on. Dark-brown-black with a creamy light brown head. Very roasted, bitter and coffeeish, without the sticky caramel sweetness that you often get in tmaves, and with heaps of full flowery hops in the aroma and aftertaste. Coffee and a bit of banana show up in the aroma too. Very clean, smooth, and light textured, but still packed with flavour. Nice to drink on the verandah with a view of rusty decaying machinery.
