stravale (2388) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle from SuperValu, Longford [300514]
Caramel brown, clear, nice frothy beige head, good lacing
Aroma of sweet toffee, soft raisin, brown sugars, soft aroma
Taste of soft dark caramel. soft raisin, hint of sweet dark chocolate, peanut shell, very little bitter hops, what is there is pleasant but the flavour is bit weak, even taking into consideration the abv
Palate - soft carb, thin body, fairly sweet. Finish as main flavour, clean soft sweet finish, some nice soft malts in there
Overall - Very easy drinking, better than expected, but the flavour is too attenuated

Discore (68) - - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle. Medium beige head. Roasted nut aroma. Oily texture, with low carbonation. Sweet, but feels slightly watered down for a dark beer. Overall drinkable, but there are better options out there...

MRMedellin (214) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - MAY 28, 2014
Clear dark beer, small head that dissipate very quickly, standard carbonation, sweet coffee cocoa aromas, flavorsome, but sadly a watery aftertaste, and not too much to remember after. The only particularity is that actually for a dark beer the alcohol content is rather low which increase the number of beer you can have, but not the quality of them.

angel77 (1251) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 22, 2014
Botella de 50 cl de el c. Ingles, tomada en octubre de 2012. lote 3115 hasta 24-01-2013. Recuerdos agradables para una cerveza de color negro y una pequeńa gradación alcohólica de 3.8 que sin embargo aporta un buen sabor, ligeros tostados y algo dulce. Para repetir.

donniemillan (73) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 14, 2014
It pours a very dark red, very fizzy head that dissipates quickly. A mild roasty and cocoa aroma, sweet taste but not much flavour.

jdobbs (411) - New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 13, 2014
Hazy dark brown color, brown head. Sweet, malty, grainy, hints of toffee scent. Malty, dry taste. Dry, mineral, sand like aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, medium high bitterness.

Rugamu (110) - SPAIN - MAY 7, 2014
Buenisima cerveza de poca graduación, 3.8, con un sabor por el que entiendes la cantidad de premios que tiene, botella de medio litro que se puede repetir sin problemas. Gran negra checa.

Rulymel (195) - SPAIN - MAY 3, 2014
Brown reddish cryatal colour with a thin beige head. Aroma is caramel, sweet, and some roasted malt deep inside. Taste is plenty of artificial caramel, too sweet and not balanced. Some bitterness would be great to opposite the always present caramel. Lightly body, dry and some caramel finish. Too much syrup for me....

flying_pig (1067) - SCOTLAND - APR 30, 2014
On-tap (500ml) from U Pavouka in Prague Old Town (49Czk):
Light malts & roasted notes with caramel & toffee. Relatively light on the nose & features a hint of chocolate and some darker malts too.
Dark, caramel brown bordering on black with a tan brown head come lacing that stuck to the sides as I worked my way down the beer.
Light to medium malts with some caramel & good sweetness. Some bitterness & roasted flavors appear along with some burnt toast with faint chocolate at the end.
Smooth & creamy with a medium body and moderate carbonation that went well with the clean and crisp feel to the beer that was slightly wet in the finish.

The beer mirrored what I’ve come to expect from Czech beers of late, highly drinkable, enjoyable with little to no off-flavors and very easy to drink.
