UPDATED: OCT 19, 2006 Black with a red tint. Thick khaki colored head that fades slowly. Some lacing, and a lasting layer of foam. It looks wonderful. Malt and caramel aroma.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
3rd Oct 2014, on-tap at Ferdinanda, Prague. Pours a deep, dark brown with an tan coloured head. Aroma is semi-sweet roasted malt, caramel and breadlike. The taste is also semi-sweet but there is some liquorice in the flavour also. Not as rich as it looks body wise but OK and not watery. This was the third on-tap beer I had in their place and I was beginning to get bored: luckily ’Sedm Kuli Tmave’ was next!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a near-brown red-hued body with a medium light beige foamy short-lived head. Nose is light roasty caramel tones with hints of cereals and raisins. Taste is straight malty tones with hints of caramel. A bit watery mouthfeel. Too simple to convince.

Moderated sweet flavor with some counter bitterness. Roasted bitter hoppy finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle probably from the Albert hypermarket in Chodov, Prague, shared with heavy
Poured a dark red body going black with a beige head that went away at a medium pace. Dry malty nose reminiscent of milk caramel, slightly roasty and sweet. Light roasty taste with notes of caramel, dry, not all that sweet for a Czech dunkel... maybe more coffeeish than chocolatey, but both descriptors are a bit stretched. Even some extremely weak notes of herbal hop floated in for a second once. It’s an ok dark beer that’s more a schwarzbier than a dunkel in my book but still not enough to care about it. All in all, a solid enough choice in a Czech supermarket.
