3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Small, short-lived tan head over quite carbonated ultra dark-brown beer. Sourish, lactic, meaty aromas upon opening. Dark malts present, but no hops in the nose. Coffee, ink; straight, near chemical, non-hoppy bitterness. Again meaty, and a peppery feeling. Warming up, slightly roasted and ashy flavours, later chocolate. Well bodied, certainly seen its ABV, slick, long peppery feel & flavour; well-carbonated. Strange beer. Honza, are you shure PET-bottles are such a good idea, certainly for travelling distances?

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
1 l PET bottle from Pivotéka Zlý Časy, Prague. The Kocour site named this a Baltic Porter. Pours very dark brown with a solid moderate sized tanned creamy head. Aroma of dark roasted malts, leather and shoe polish. Taste is initially sweet malts, lactose, before the roasted malts blends in with the bitter hops. Medium bodied, weak carbonated. Lingering hoppy and dark burnt caramel aftertaste. Quite good considering the low abv.
(Brewed together with Hoppy Brewing Company, California.)

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. A bit of a mish-mash - very close to black with a short-lived light brown head; aroma hinting at licorice and port; quite a hit of unexpected sourness to a disturbing degree which turns the other dark malt flavours to burnt rubber. There’s a good beer there somewhere but it hasn’t survived. Give me a cerna vdova any day
