Coffee, roast, apple and a grassy hopbitterness in the flavor. Also caramel. Thinnish, but certainly has complexity. Very well made dunkel.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark mahogany with a red hue and a huge, nice and creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and caramel. The flavour has sweetness and notes of roasted malt, caramel, candy sugar and a suitable, slightly citrussy, bitterness in the finish, and at the end also slightly dry. It’s smooth, mellow and pleasant.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark reddy brown, rich froth for a head. Roasty and hoppy aroma. Wickedly bitter hoppy taste fights with punchy dark burnt malt taste for your attention. Don’t get me wrong, this is a well balanced fight. Anyway neither wins until the end of the aftertaste, as the bitterness survives longer. What’s this? The burnt malt wants a rematch?...

On tap at "U obory", Jabkenice: Very dark amber coloured, medium sized nice lacing head; clean malty aroma with a tinge of molasses, lively caronation; slightly sweetish, distinctive malty taste; drier, bitter aftertaste (with a tinge of chocolate); very well balanced between maltiness and bitterness; quite full bodied. A very good classical Bohemian Dunkel !
