2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Looks good, this brown beer with a small beige head. Aroma was so much like boiled vegetables that I couldn’t focus on the rest. Flavor is mild, light roasted malt and caramel. Medium mouthfeel and low on bitterness in finish. (051104)

UPDATED: APR 30, 2005 Draught
One of my alltime favourites in the pub. Perfect dark brown colour with good head. Taste is easily drinkable malty and sweet vanishing with the pleasure at the end. (7/5/8/5/18 4.3)
Re-rate, bottled (BB 11/2004)
Dark ruby, espresso head. Roasted malt, dark chocolate aroma. Medium-bodied, sweet and roasted palate with late carbonation. Some hoppy bitterness in oily aftertaste as well as the notes of toffee. (6/5/7/3/15 3.6)

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Bought @ Fřtex, Aabenraa. Golden ruby-red (quite dark) with a medium, slightly fizzy, foamy yellowish head. Aroma is nutty with a little roasted malts. Flavour is sweet, nutty and mixing in a little chocolate and roasted flavours. Nice flavour, but the mouthfeel is perhaps a little limited.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2005 Dark brown. Medium sized, short-lived head. Malty nose with chocolate and roast caramel. Feels and tastes weak, which of course isn’t a lie, but it does so in a very pleasant way.
I can imagine why Czech dissidents would sit up all night discussing politics with this kind of beer.
