2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Caramel and candy sugar in the aroma, with subtle notes of coffee, chocolate and licorice. Boring but quite allright. Taste is too sweet and too evidently caramelly. Faintly bitter and faintly coffeeish finish. Passable as a breakfast beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A not bad and light beer. In the aroma one finds some sweetness from dark malts. The saturation is pretty high. One of the significant disadvantage is metallic taste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Pavel Ploc, Harrachov. Pours clear dark brown with stable, thick light tan head. Clear aroma of malt and caramel. Sweetish taste of malt with notes of roast, caramel and fruit. Dryish aftertaste. Would be better without the metallic finish, but it’s ok.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at The Czech Inn, Dublin. Deep reddish brown colour with thick off-white head. Aroma is heavy caramel, light red fruit, and a slight vegetal note. Taste brings a lot of rich, sweet caramel with some hints of herb and red/dark fruit (although not too much to be honest). Pretty sweet all round with a lot of lingering sugary caramel stuff going on - becomes fairly cloying after a while. Not too bad, but I can't imagine drinking too much of this.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a deep brownish color with a healthy tan head that fades slowly to good lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, roasted malt bit of chocolate and spice. Taste of dark fruit, some chocolate, roasted malt and bit of coffee in the background. Very mild bitterness and a slightly sweet finish.. Moderate body, a bit on the light side. Smooth and creamy but missing something to make it distinctive. Decent beer but comes up a bit short for a Czech beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with McTapps. A nice surprise ! But a watery one... Nice aroma of malt, sugar and fruit combined with a slightly sweetish taste. Maybe due to its low alc this one seems to be a bit watery. Put it up to 5,5 % and the same taste, then you’ll get a 4,2 in the score !

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Clear dark ruby-brown in colour with low head. Thin body, nose of pumpernickel. Taste of brown sugar, caramel, light nuts, brown bread and syrup. Too sweet and light for me.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma has dark bread and malts. Nice dark head, and color is dark brown. Smooth and fulfilling flavor, dark malts bring some sweetness. It’s like bread that is transformed into beer, brilliant!
