Hmm.. quite pleasant surprise. Decent light roasted malty background with mild but all the way pleasant choco presence, light coffee, caramel, feels well balanced with light fruitiness from hops. Moderate sweet with light bitterness. Drinkable and quite enjoyable

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle from Beer Run, Czechvar Dark label, best buy 01.31.14, so several months out of date even though I got this a few days ago and it was also new at the retailer. Pours a dark brown color with a thin creamy tan head. Poor head retention. Skunky aroma with notes of raisin and caramel. The taste is raisin, coffee, caramel, skunky hops. Thin bodied. Could be refreshing if not shipped way out of date in a green bottle. Fail.

Dark brown body with a light brown head. Aroma is caramel, roasted malt, toffee, some coffee. Taste is sweet with a medium bitterness. Roasted. Aftertaste not as good. Shame could be better.

ThirstyBird (1706) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2014
Pours a cola color with a small tan head. The nose is fruit, brown sugar. The taste is roasty, a little slow, brown sugar, fruit ending dry. Light+in body with a touch less than average carbonation. The nose isn’t big but the flavor is.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2014
a) Schöne schwarz-rötliche Farbe, beiger Schaum. Der Geruch ist süßlich-trocken mit angenehmer Malznote. Im Antrunk ist das Bier vollmundig-süffig, ganz leicht säuerlich. Zum Hauptteil entwickelt sicht eine angenehme malzig-röstmalzige Schwarzbiernote, leichte Lakritztöne, verbranntes Brot. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang anhaltend, schön vollmundig-röstmalzig-trocken und dazu schön abgewogen herb mit ganz leichter Süße.
→ Ein leckeres, böhmisches Schwarzbier!

b) Thanks to ThirstyBird for sharing. Smooth malty nose, nice malty roasty start. The mainpart is nice roasted, very dry, nice malty bitter. On the tongue remains a nice malty dry aroma with hints of liquorice and roasted malt.
