2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Hukvaldske pivovar (07/03/13). Clear amber pour with traditional thick white head. Light grainy aroma, some toast notes, some off leathery aromas as well, really spicy flavor, a bit off in general. Drinkable, but I wouldn’t put back two of these...

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Toasted malts and spicy hops merge in this svelte, soft lager.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A whipped cream-like head of foam decorates the dark copper mist.
-This doesn’t taste like the brewer was aiming for any specific style or colour. It’s just a nice ‘stronger’ brew than his regular 12-degree that happens to be a bit darker.
-The day we visited, this brew appeared to be fresher than the 12-degree.
-Dusty nudges are felt in the finish.
On tap at the brewpub.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The glass placed in front of me was filled with a beautiful dark brown beer topped by a tight knit white head that basically stopped any aromas getting through, although as the head lessened there was a distinct toffee touch to the nose. Drinking this stuff was pure nectar, like sticky toffee pudding in a glass, smooth, sweet and with a fragrant bitterness which offset the sweetness perfectly.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Hazy amber, lively ehad. Minerally dusty nose with some medicin. ryish and fruity with medium body and fairly low bitterness. Dust and medicin takes over. Not a favourite.
