3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Almost black pour with some ruby highlights in the thinner areas of the glass. Slim tan head that leaves a bit of lacing behind. A chocolatey, malty aroma with some slight hints of roasted grain. A nice malty flavor with hints of bread. A slight coppery taste in the backend. Smooth and creamy mouth. Not too bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thick-set brown-tan head, rather stable over ultra-deep dark chestnut coloured beer. Aromatic nose with chocolate, dark malts, dry grains, parsley, cypress and pine ashes. More chocolate and more ashes in the taste; sweet and dry-bitterish, balanced in a sinusoidal way: very good! Feels well-carbonated, and probably better bodied than it really is; quite slick. Excellent dark, satisfying, pleasing and - oh God, I’m using the m-word myself, definitely too long in CAMRA - more-ish. Many thanks, Denisa and Honza!
