2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at The Kolkovna, Prague, Pasteurised, 500ml. Dark brown with malty cream head. The ubiquitous Kozel dark can be found at any of the hundreds of Pilsner Urquell bars around Prague, I have to say that Sandra loves this beer, but I find it much too sweet for me, there is licorice in there and a certain fruitiness, but really the sweetness is overwhelming.

Clear dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is sweet malty and caramel. Flavor is quite sweet. Sweet finish. Watery. There’s not much to this beer except malty sweetness. 130910

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark, rich brown color. Slight head, light brown in color. Quite sweet with hints of chocolate and caramel (maybe even a little coffee or something). Sweet, malty flavor. Unfortunately, tonight is my last night in Prague so I probably won’t get to try one of these again for a while. Perhaps I’ll have one tomorrow morning before my flight. That sounds like a great idea.

Amber with an offwhite head. Aroma is malty and slightly floral. Flavor is really malty and brings some cream.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Reddish-amber coloured, creamy tanned head, slowly diminishing to a small stable foamy layer; sweet-malty, toasted-malty nose; sweet-caramelly flavour, light bodied, soft MF; toasted, caramelly finish with a small chocolatey bitterness in the end. Hearty, easily drinkable Dunkel, a bit on the sweet side....

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep reddy brown, bready head. Smell is a bit metallic. Quite watery palate, but a decent enough burnt maltiness to it. Very restrained hops. A little sweet, but some samples we’ve had have been very sweet - quality control’s not their strong point. Quite drinkable, but not very exciting.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle) Clear, ruby brown colour with a medium-sized tanned foamy head. Toasty malty aroma with notes of caramel, dark bread and a delicately hoppy touch. Moderately sweet and slightly roast-bitter flavour, light bodied but not watery with a smooth carbonation. Toasty malty taste with caramel, bread crusts and dark chocolate; dry-ish, roasty bitter finish with a subtle doughy acidity. Pleasant and rounded. 07.VI.10

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice dark, thanks to Radek bought in Poland. Wine brandy colour, bit of lace. Licorice, bit sour, despite malting including caramel. Tad chocolate malt as well. Bit of roast. Not complex, easy drink. A particular dunkel style, OK but not that I seek out.

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.
