2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 14, 2009 Rating is an average of 2.
Dark brown, slightly fizzy but no real head. Sweet chocolatey aroma. Fizzy in the mouth. The chocolate and sweetness carry over into the taste. Slightly watery and sweet. Slight blue cheese at the start of each mouthful . Nice burnt element, but could have been a lot better if brewed to a less kvassy strength. (5-3-7-2-10=2.7)
Dark red, small head. Dry husky grainy aroma. Very dry palate. Simple dark lager - drinkable, but too drying to be a thirst quencher. Mostly malt, bugger all hops.

Bottle from total wine. Brown pour. Light head. Malty aroma. A bit of butter. Flavor is malty with aome buttery notes and very light bitterness at the end. Better than I thought it would be. But not all that great.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very nice appearance with a deep, dark brown colour topped with a beige, lasting head. Sweet aroma. Taste of sweet roasted malt and dark chocolate. Vague bitter finish. A tasty beer, but perhaps a litte too sweet.
At Catweazle’s great tasting party 10.06.2006.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Poured medium brown with a short beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, toasted nutty and vanilla-kissed coffee malts.. came across very sweet. The flavor found very sweet chocolate, vanilla, and caramel malt with very light, toasty bitterness around.. sweet, fairly tasty finish. Light-bodied with higher carbonation.. very sweet, but not overly so for the style.. aiight.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2008 Bottle, Rogoznica, HR. Nose of brine, figgy dried fruit, almost rauch-like smoked waxiness and cocoa. That’s an 8. Beige on mahogany, with ruby flashes. Laces beautifully. This is a smooth, chocolatey dunkel with bags of smoked malt character approaching rauchbier status, and at least as good as the Lasko Temno.

Appearance: Neat light brown with deep ruby hue, medium tanned top.
Nose: Fruity malted front with gentle barley roast. Hint of cocoa with chocolate raisin dipped.
