3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Almost black beer with a thin fading off-white covering. Faintly smokey, roasty aroma but the flavour seems a little too washed out and watered down.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml. bottle. Pours a dark mahogany colour, with a big tanned head leaving a lace all over when it fades. Smell is roasted, like burnt wood, earthy chocolate. Mouth has dried fruits, chocolate and a the burnt wood earthy finish. Medium to light body, I would have like it a little bit more strong. Drinkable and good, but I prefer the usual lager one.

Bottle 50cl, Oddbins. Dark dark dark appearance. Thin lacing - short lasting head. Sweetish aroma. Roasted taste, a bit nutty. A little chocolaty. Would have preferred it to be stronger to give it a bit of more character, but nonetheless a good decent beer.

Black with a medium head. Light malt aroma. Light body. Smokey, nutty and coffee notes. Enjoyable, although after two I felt the need to move on to something else.
