ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - NOV 3, 2007
Draft @ U Medvidku, Prague. Pours almost entirely opaque black with brown tones, lovely fluffy beige head that sticks around a while if you let it; almost like a lager stout: same chocolate roastiness, caramel and biscuit malts maple syrup, only lacking the heavy body and drawn out finish of a stout, which makes it a good bit more drinkable. Goes exceptionally well with goulash.

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2007
Draught @ St. Albans BF. Due to many of my choices being already sold out, I was kindly given a glass to try while debating. I must say it was much better than expected, not amazing but my expectations were low. Sweet roasted malt and a bit of cocoa. Taste is much the same with a bit of coffee, caramel and some hop in the finish. Hey, don’t let the name fool you, they do a couple of good un’s...

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2007
On tap at Bedford Arms Speciality Beer House, Bedford. Dark brown with a lively beige head. Slightly eggy malt aroma. Rather watery ashy malt taste with traces of chocolate. A little bitterness. Not up to a decent porter.

MrRomero (1974) - Nolanville, USA - OCT 21, 2007
500ml bottle: poured dark brown with a medium sized light brown head. Very rich smelling with roasted malts. Flavor is roasty, not near as rich as the aroma would suggest but still very nice. No residual sweetness lingering anywhere after swallowing. It’s not dry but in my opinion perfectly balanced. A very nice beer.

garza (567) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - OCT 18, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2011 Dark brown colour on the looks with beige head. Malty nose, far hints of caramel. Round roasted malty flavour, some chocolate notes there too. Light sweetness, medium bitterness. Medium body, oily feel, average carbonation. Medium lasting after taste with that malty and light sweet-bitter touch Very good beer.

taunusmies (331) - FINLAND - OCT 17, 2007
Pours dark slightly red, with a small quick disappearing head. Aroma has a lot of very roasted malts.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2007
A Mes rate: 50cl bottle from Grape Sense in Chalk Farm. Much more impressed with this than I was expecting. I’m a bit of a dark lager fan anyway but still, this is pretty tasty. Excellent semi-translucent dark brown / amber colour with a pretty stable mushroom coloured head. Really good sweet malt, chocolate and heavy coffee aroma with a very light sourness to it. Flavour very similar but with some light tobacco hoppage that to be honest lets it down just a little. A lick of card also does it no favours. Nice coffe malt finish brings it back. Decent stuff.

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2007
Bottle. Huge bubbly light brown head that mostly lasted. Good display of thick film like lacework. Somewhat clear dark mahogany color. Nice sniff of hops with notes of floral, hint of ashtray, light toasted malty notes, underlying caramel and grain sweet feel. Maybe even a hint of smoke in there as well. Medium bodied with a light dry texture and an average carbonation. Light sweet and bitter flavor. Somewhat dry and light bitter finish.

Bottel.50cl. For me this one of the best dark lager, i have tasted, good aroma, fine body, and good head.

Tap... reminded me of a watered down Guinness. Not bad overall, but I like the light Budvar better.
