3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml Bottle from Prague Airport (60Czk):
Earthy malts and very subtle hops with a touch of spice in there as well. Chocolate & sweetness with some caramel came next & there was was very faint hint of coffee. Strong & well-balanced on the nose, very nice stuff.
Chestnut brown & a creamy, light tan head that sits nicely on top with zero movement initially & it holds well even as I worked my way down the glass, leaving a little lacing on the sides too.
Mix of chocolate and caramel with a sweet taste & subtle spice plus a nutty taste with some coffee. It mirrors the aroma & has some roasted malts, a touch of sugar & some bitterness round the drink off nicely.
Smooth, very smooth in fact and with a subtly sweet taste that hints at some spice. The body is medium & the beer has low carbonation levels that help the beer down. The finish is clean & wet with some light to medium bitterness closing things out.
I was pleasantly surprised with this one, I wasn’t expecting a whole lot going in but it was certainly a good beer & one well worth seeking out if you can find it. Very nice stuff and quite easy to drink as well, this is a beer I’d be happy to pick up again.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske, 50 cl. Cola-farvet og klar, med en rřdlig kant og et lille beigefarvet skum. Sřdlig duft af mřrkt brřd, der i munden udvikler ristede malt-noter af lakrids. Vandig og let, men velbalanceret og let at drikke. Helt ok.
