ClarkVV (4414) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Draught at Lord Hobo, 8/23/15.
Ruby-chestnut body is dark and clear with a beige head atop showing strong retention.
Sugars (light toffee, melanoidins, vanilla-creme) in the nose are deliciously balanced by a good toasted malt acidity and herbal hops. Some hints of earthiness, even a touch of vinousness and borderline coffee-like roast. Very complex, very sniffable and with no sign whatsoever of the alcohol.
Oh ya. That’s nice. Reminds me of Andechs a bit, though not quite as elegant of a yeast signature, but still retains the wine-like brightness and acidity playing off of the deliciously richly extracted toffeeish malts. Sweet, yes, but not cloying in the least. Black pepper, sourdough, vanilla, herbs, hay....the list goes on. Supple body from the malt, ample carbonation and no alcohol nor flaw noted. Damn. Very angry I missed the 10 earlier in the Summer. Hope I get a chance to have it again....

Clear dark brown, medium beige head. Rye bread roasty aroma. Medium body, caramel roasty sweetness with light roasty bitter notes. Finishes malty, roasty and sweet. Nice.

Gran cervezaca checa, una de las de más graduación de la zona, pero impresionante, no se nota el alcohol, además deja un delicioso regusto a cafe chocolatoso, que merece mucho la pena. Siempre que la vea, repetiré.

Taste : Very sweet, alcohol, spicy.
Palate : Medium-full body. Oily texture. Astringent, alcoholic spicy finish.

On tap, Prague beer museum. Pour super dark, nearly black with a medium dark beige head. Aroma pears, sweet dough - pear pie? ;), some yeast. Medium body, taste strongly on the sweet side - coconuts and again pears. Not much in terms of palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
