3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Koutland, Plzen.
Pours hazy brown with a pretty, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is lightly roasted with a wonderful, light, chocolate tone. Pleasant balance between aroma and flavour. Quite high carbonation, otherwise fine mouthfeel. Flavour is rather sweet, some caramel and sugar, but thankfully also a good dose of roasted malts. Super balanced.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draught) Pours dark brown. The aroma is fruity with light notes of dark berries alongside some dark bready malt, light toast, tiny roast and some earthy hops to back it up. The flavour is of dark bready malt, some earth, grassy bitter hops, dark berries and some light fruity notes. The mouthfeel is clean and dry. Some soft roast in the finish. Medium bodied. This is the least interesting beer in the lineup from this brewery. Still good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Koutland, Plzen. Dark brown / red with cream head. Toffee, caramel flavours to the fore with hints of liquorice. Surprisingly relatively dry in character even though there is a slight acidic fruitiness. Bitter and vinous on the finish, quite unusual but certainly has an interest.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Koutland, Plzen. Very deep ruby/brown. Some sickly red fruit, which Patrik rightly says normally means it’s infected, but with this it could just be the malt. It could be a bit dodgy. Finish has some dryness, bit of fruit sourness. Not sure I like this.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at Koutland, Plzen.
Dark hazy brown colour. A dunkel with the regular sensations such as dark fruits, molasses but not awfully sweet. Suffers from lots of butterscotch. Bit too much.
