COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Produced from special dark malts, which is why even its foam is dark.

jinkyoo21 (1) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2005 does not count
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.

Kĺstĺ (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - SEP 23, 2005
Dark reddish brown coloured beer with a medium disappearing head. Light toffee aroma. The taste is sweet with a rather creamy palate. Very short neutral finish.

DrunkenCumquat (86) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - SEP 22, 2005
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.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2005
On tap in Olomouc:

The Lure:
Creamy fruit salad sailing on an underlying bock-like malt sweetness. Roasted caramel and ashes complete the semi-complexity.

The Festivities:
Cloying caramel in an almost nitroed, soft and round body. Sweet chocolate melting into a weak roastiness.

Transcendence:
Thick icing on a thin cake is not necessarily as enjoyable as it could be.

DuffMan (6164) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 26, 2005
Fantastic! Pours a rich red copper with a medium tan head with good lace. Aromas of toffee, sweet spice, dates. Toasted malt palate with cooked fruit in the finish (apples and raisins).

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2005
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

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 29, 2005
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.

asheft (2447) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2005
[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.

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2005
(Draught at U Karla, Prague.) Dark mahogany brown. Thin white diminishing head. Sweet malty nose with hints of ham. Caramelly, roasted, malty flavour. Chewy, sweet, thick palate. Notes of liquorice.
