Found this at U Fleku in Prague. Couldn’t stop drinking the stuff. And, at $1.50 a pint, very cost-effective.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Dark brown with huge brown head. Aroma sweet, rye bread, malt. Nice. Taste roasted malts and rather sweet, again lots of rye bread notes. A nice beer and lot of taste for so little alcoholcontent.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very dark brown, but not quite black. A tall, creamy white head. Aroma of burnt malt. Slight caramel and coffee. A touch of hops and raisins (apples?). Aroma stronger than usual. Sweetish flavor, lots of caramel, not as much roasted flavor as is in the nose. Slight burnt aftertaste, still sweet, a bit of hop dryness, but not much. Not roasted enough. Not enough hops really. A nice tasting beer, to be sure, but on the sweet end of the style. A little more like a German dunkel than is usual for a Czech dark.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brown with a fine grey head. The aroma is malt dominated with notes of roasted malts and caffe latte. The flavour is both refreshing and complex at the same time: cold caffe latte notes dominate. Excellent.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer looks great - it has nice deep dark brown color with beige head. That’s exactly how good dark beer should look like. But taste of the beer definitely fails to satisfy the promise made by the appearace. It’s flat and reveals total lack of any vision of the autors. If not vision, it would be good to have at least some idea in which direction to go. In my opinion, the beer lacks even that...
