bhensonb (11060) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 24, 2008
Draft at The Spaniards on the Heath. Dark brown color with orange/garnet hilites. Creamy light tan head. Dark toasted malt aroma. Near full bodied with medium carbonation. It is balanced, but whether from hop or burnt malt I cannot say. Suugests the old Guinness in a way, but with a different bitter.

oldrtybastrd (3223) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Pours a deep dark brown. Aromas of roasted malts, smoke, and hints of fruit. Flavors of the roasted malts, some fruit, with a coffee aftertaste.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 8, 2008
Toasted brown with a loose tan fluff. Semi-sharp chocolate and coffee melds with a distinct nuttiness, toasted bread and light smokiness. Roasted and nutty from the start; mild caramel sweetness before a dry espresso finish. Stealthy, light; velvety with crisp carbonation.

Pleasantly dry, roasty and sessionable.

50 cl bottle, best before 5.2.2009.

Kavu (2232) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 6, 2008
Nice foamy top. Almost completely black. The aroma is not as strong as the color suggest and neither is the flavor. A bit sweet and malty. Much like dark Kozel.

esox (1066) - Oulu, FINLAND - APR 17, 2008
500 ml bottle. Medium head is light brown, fine textured and qite creamy. Dark brown liquid has shade of amber against the light. Light to medium sweet flavor with lightly roasted and sweet caramel malts. Also some coffee aromas. Very light bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel is smooth but a bit watery and boring.

Glouglouburp (6023) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2008
Back from a Czech Republic pub-crawl this is part of my express ratings for the “typical” Světlý 11°- (Czech light Pils), Světlý 12°+ (Czech Pils), Polotmavý (Czech Amber Lagers) and Tmavý (Czech Black Lagers). Non-typical beers will receive personalized descriptions after the express ratings.
-------- /> How: Tap late-night (when all the good beer bars are closed) at some very cool pub in Prague but with a sucky beer selection
The look: Dark brown body with medium beige head
To me a typical Czech Tmavé (Czech Black Lager) is: Dark malts and barely any roastiness sensation. Some dark fruits flavours (raisins with a little figs, dates and prunes) wrapped in smooth dark caramel (borderline toffee) and a subtle chocolate note. A bit bready. Moderately sweet without much hops presence and only a mild bitterness (voluntary unbalanced it seems). Very smooth body, like a watery cream.
This one: As above but less of everything and a bit more toffee flavour. Hints of black liquorice. Body felt a bit empty. Too clean.

Plovmand (6480) - Helsinge, DENMARK - APR 2, 2008
Bottle. Pours dark brown with medium floffy head. Aroma is malty with some roastiness. Flavour is dark candy sugar and dark malts. Good bitterness. Pleasant dunkel.
