3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle, ABV is 4.4%. Will be imported to Norway soon. Very dark reddish brown colour, nearly black. Moderate beige head. Surprisingly moderate aroma, some "dusty" malts. The flavour has a nice maltiness with mild roasted notes, but is not very sweet. Moderate but noticeable hops, dry finish. Refreshing and pleasant to drink.

On tap at Cafe Svejk, Copenhagen. Pours black with a huge rocky tanned head. Aroma is lovely dark malts, dried fruits. Taste is powerful dark caramel, roasted nuts, chewy malty and some good bitterness. Lingering malty aftertaste, a very good Czech.

Looks great in the glass. Malt and ash taste. Holds onto the palate with an ashy taste. Good beer, I prefer something hoppier.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought outside the brewery in Trebon. Dark brown, almost black color. Decent but fast-fading head, slightly tan colored. Rather sweet, malty aroma, slightly roasted. Caramel. Pretty good burnt flavor, some hop bitterness, but not much, also not much sweetness, or at least it is covered by the roasted flavor. The flavor is dominated by the burnt malt, but it is medium-dry over all. Finish is very burnt and malty, with coffee and caramel. It is quite long-lasting for this type. The burnt taste remains. Dry and perfectly balanced. Medium or slightly lighter body, medium carbonation. Not terribly complex, but very good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours ruby brown with small brown head; rye bready and sweet malty aroma with promising chocolate notes; light body, but carbonation gives an impression of somewhat pleasant harshness; sweetish, slightly roasty flavor gives also hints of red berries ending slightly sour and bitter.
