3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle in the bus @ RBESG.
Pours deep brown with a medium, creamy, beige head. Stays a long time as a thin film. Aroma has a touch of ashes, good chocolate and lightly roasted malts. Not too sweet. Low carbonation, okay mouthfeel, just bordering on being too thin. Flavour is pleasantly roasted with some peppery notes. Very drinkable.

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

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ the brewpub. Pours black like a Coke, with a big off-white head. Caramelly aroma. Taste is full of sweet creme brule, too much for my likings.
Almost no bitterness to balance it, makes it difficult to appreciate.
