Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium to light bodied with a calm carbonation. Robust malty and moderately roasted taste with notes of caramel, chocolate and herbal accents; a tad sweet and mildly roasted malty finish with a touch of herbal hops and a lasting chocolaty aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle from Farmarsky Obchod Praha. Deep brown colour, beige head. Hoppy-malty aroma. Full-bodied, lovely malt flavours, hints of caramel, dark malts, roasetd malts, chocolate, coffee and dried fruit. Astinishingly intensive hop flavours, resiny and slightly herbal. Bitter-sweet character - the aromatic hops suit the dark character of the beer very well and make it very delicious and rather comples. Gooooooood!

draft at pivovarsky klub in prague. lightly hazed cola brown colored body. nut and coffee ground nose with small notes of rubber/petroleum. cola-like sweetness, resembles some kvass i’ve had but without the bile. decent texture, nothing of note, just a little oily. medium body. a little too sweet and all around a very simple recipe that doesn’t really show off the czech brewing tradition.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Opaquer cola- to chestnut coloured beer; small beige, slightly irregular head. Rainwater, wet dog but also malt syrup, bready and leafy; suggesting serious sweetness. Way less sweet than expected, in fact, serious punch of bitterness, both roasted and chestnut - of the horse persuasion. Gets sweeter all the same once warming up, returning to the bready aromacomponent. Bit empty, watery; just hints at grist slickness. Long bitterish aftertaste. Surprisingly bitter - which doesn’t spoil anything, of course. Many thanks to Honza!

Nuts and chocolate in the nose.
Bittersweet chocolate, well balanced, but there could have been more dryness and bitterness. Nice complexity. A little liquorice and coffee.
