Dark brown color beer with very smooth taste. Very smooth almost ground coffee aroma. Thin head. Very sweet and easy on teh palate. Easy finish. The best Czech beer there is. Just lovely. Must try for all.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Nice, dark brown, with a creamy head, reasonable persistence. Raw sugar flavour and extremely sweet, perhaps too much so. Some chocolate and fruit flavours as well. It’s a lot like my housemate: nice, but a bit uncoordinated.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap in Olomouc:
Creamy fruit salad sailing on an underlying bock-like malt sweetness. Roasted caramel and ashes complete the semi-complexity.
Cloying caramel in an almost nitroed, soft and round body. Sweet chocolate melting into a weak roastiness.
Thick icing on a thin cake is not necessarily as enjoyable as it could be.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. An amazing beer for its low ABV. Dark with a dark brown hue with tan head with good retention. Sweet spicy aroma leading to a delicious palate with lots of sweet malt, some chocolate and subdued bitterness. Becomes a little bit cloying as you finish your third pint... but then again I can live with that. Good mouth feel with standard lager carbonation. You should try it on tap, where it *really* excels

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap, Prague. Pours deep, cola red-brown with thick tan head. Sweet aroma of caramel and sugar. Sweet flavors of coffee and caramel, balanced with a bit of hops. Good mouthfeel, too: I wish the flavors lasted longer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
[on tap somewhere in the Czech Republic]
Clear, ruby-brown with good lacing and a creamy cover. Plenty of diacetyl butterscotch in the aroma with some caramel and a hint of noble hops. The flavour is of sweet caramel plus diacetyl with strawberry/kiwi notes. Quite sweet with no bitterness. Maybe a little raisiny and brown ale-like. Medium body and very low carbonation with a clean finish.
