Color is black with a bit brown to it with a nice cinnamon like head that stays. Aroma is interesting it/s chocolate, coffee, toffee, lactose.. Taste is as great as the aroma it has everything that you expect from the aroma and a really smooth palate, something like sweet espresso maybe. This is probably the best black lager I had from a Czech brewery.

Derbeth (422) - Kraków, POLAND - DEC 4, 2014
Bottle. Black colour, head does not stay long, no lacing. Aroma is slightly roasty, some licorice. Light bitterness, light sweetness. Medium body, soft carbonation. Not bad, but for me it’s boring - lacks bitterness and roastiness. There are better Czech beers of this kind.

Bottle 0,50L. Clear, very dark brown colour with average big, long lasting, creamy, light brown head. Aroma of hazelnuts, caramel, biscuits, milk chocolate. Taste starts light sweet with chocolate milk and hazelnuts napolitano cakes flavor, while the finish is light bitter with dark chocolate touch. Medium body, oily texture and soft carbonation. Very good dunkel.

Russo (1728) - Hemhofen, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2014
Deep dark brown color with a tan head that keep a lacing for a while. Aroma is roasty and hoppy, hints of coffee and chocolate. Flavor is like aroma but quite balanced sweet and bitterness. Medium body with a low carbonation and a sweet bitter end.

Flaska frĺn @JanVah, Tack! Nästa svart vätska med ljusbrunt skum som lägger sig fort. Doftar lingonsylt och choklad. Smakar välrostad malt med en aning kaffe och lakrits. Riktigt god!

ElDesmadre (1942) - Mikołów, POLAND - APR 24, 2014
Bottle. Licorice, bread crust, toasted grain and cocoa milk in the aroma. Quite chocolatey flavour, with roasted notes giving way to coffee in the finish, accompanied by shy milky and licorice notes. Greatly balanced, dryish, devoid of the sweetness that so often ruins a promising Czech dunkel. A great effort.
