2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours with almost no head, and what does exist disappears very quickly. Smells like coffee and water, maybe some grape juice in there too. Taste is coffee, coffee, coffee - very surprising for this brew, but it lacks complexity and feels a little bit fake. On the other hand, there are worse flavours to imitate and it’s an okay "fake" dark beer. Worth trying if you can get it for free.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
(bottle) Poured perfectly, a deep ruby-brown colour with ample head.
For a beer of only 3.8% alc/vol this one had plenty of body. There was a definite roastiness present, and the hopping was spot on. This is one I could come back to many times if available.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
on tap - Prague. My beer of preference during my stay in Prague. Dark ruby color, nice head. Sweet caramel taste, light body, refreshing. I found this to be an excellent session beer given the alcohol content and light - medium body.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Canned. Dark ruby brown, medium-sized off-white head. Toasted rye bread aroma, little salmiak. Flavor has slight licorice, sweet roasty rye bread, molasses, slight coal and metal in the finish. Light to medium bodied, a tad coarse carbonation, some sugariness on the palate. I hate the saccharine, but have to admit that this is still pretty alright flavourwise.

bottle. train rating. moderately creamy texture, overall pretty good for bottled dunkel but of course doesn’t match fresh draft anything. toffee, coffee cake, toast, all there but with an oily butter and metal note. taste some bottle and bottle cap in there.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12.09.2009, 0,5l Bottle. Colour is dark brown with off-white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt. This beer is very sweet. The malty sweetness is not backed up by bitterness and alcohol, so its maybe a little bit off-balanced.
