2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught @ Pivovarsky Dum. Darkish reddy brown with tan head and coffee beans. Sweet milky coffee flavours and underlying roasty malts. Although not overly sweet the sweet flavours soon become boring.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark amber, almost black. Offwhite head. Coffee aroma, some cocoa and tar with sweeter notes. Sweet coffee flavor with chocolate notes. Some bitterness in the finish. Good, but a little thin in my opinion.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at the brewpub. Pitch with a little mahogany peaking around the side. Tan, creamy head. Smells strongly of coffee with some coholate; finally, a strong aroma from this brewer! Taste is a bit of a letdown, though, not as strong as expected...light-bodied, coffee, coffee grounds, and dark chocolate. Medium-dry finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2008 First rating
Draught at the brewpub.
Dark brown color, small white head. Mix of chocolate and coffee in the scent. Lots of lean chocolate taste, lean mouthfeel. A little bit of coffee in the aftertaste. A bit acid taste. When I sampled this a year ago I can remember not liking it at all. Either they’ve changed their recepie or I’ve gotten more used to these types of beers.
(Draught at the brewpub in PRague on June 24, 2008)
Clear reddish dark brown color, tan head. Dry coffee scent. Coffee and acidic taste. Coffee aftertaste. Moussy mouthfeel, low bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Brewpub. Dark woody look with neat creamy tan head. Refreshing, pleasant coffee aroma. Very good roast, dry mocha, chocolate. I can’t recollect better coffee aroma in beer before. Mocha, milky flavour. Some acidic character below. Great roasty character aroma was not translated into flavour.

(Tap) Pours brown with very little head. Coffee flavor was very strong, but the body itself was pretty weak. One of their better flavored beers.
