3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.5l bottle bought in Cesky Krumlov. Small head, light brown, vanishes quickly.. Body almost black. Moderate aroma, malty, mostly. Taste is dominated by roasted malt and a bit of caramel. Plus some mild sourness/bitterness. Kind of remote relative of a dry stout. Moderately carbonated, rather silky. Liked it.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle dated October 18 2014, so it’s expired. Smells of solvent and cola malt with sharp hairspray notes. Medium bodied, chewy and sweet and syrupy, showing more of a nutty and toasty malt and cedar-pepper hop character in the finish. Pretty simple malt character, and the low carbonation doesn’t support it well so it sits flabby and chewy and comes across like malzbier, especially up front. The finish is nicely long and there’s more depth in the back.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the brewery. Pours dark brown with orange glints and a tan head. Aroma of chocolate and malt. Flavor is chocolate and dark malt, and maybe a touch of vanilla. Finishes just a short way off dry. Nice dunkel.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (BB Oct 16, 2014, 5.0% ABV).
Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark brown.
Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, coffee, cocoa, bread), lightly hoppy (herbs).
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Smells fairly nice...very coffee-ish, definitely more towards the Schwarzbier side of the spectrum IMHO. A little too sweet in the mouth, though, as far as the lingering sugars in the finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gyenge, teljesen elüt az igazi prágai dunkles-től, mintha csak színezték volna.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 0.50l. Cloudy dark brown color with thin creamy tan-like head and nice lacing. Aroma of caramel, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and herbal hops. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel and toffee, follows by gently roasted malt, coffee and grainy sourness, while finish is pleasant bitter. Medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Very well balanced and tasty...
