3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Quite interesting, best Czech dunkel I’ve tried perhaps. Sarsparilla with a weird caramel aftertaste. Have since tried it bottled a few times, where the nice balance of the sweet flavours seems to go out of whack and turn into a sickly mess that’s sometimes hard to finish.

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

I was positively surprised, when I first drank this beer. Some may say it’s for woman - when you sitting in Prague’s "hospoda" (pub) you’ll see women drinking it. Excellent taste - you can find a little caramel aroma there, but not to strong. Good foam, stays long on top. Great colour, dark but not black. One of the best beers I ever drank.

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!

This is a lovely Munich dunkel with a great sweetish flavor and lingering palate. The flavor is well-balanced. One of my favorites.

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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a dark amber-brown with a finger and a half of off white head.
Nose is uninspiring. Wet cardboard and some caramel.
Flavour is much the same. Lots of caramel, a hint of smoke, an interesting milk chocolate note, a sweet finish.
Pretty boring, but it’s not bad. Just not good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black with a pillowy tan head. Aroma of toasty grain. Taste is clean and balanced, with a decent amount of both dark malt, clean light malt, and Czech hops.

Draught, Dublin. Pours dark ochre, with beige and compact head, that eventually dissipates to quarter-finger deep. Nutty aroma of sweet malts, and something similar on the palate but with caramel notes. Put me in mind of Smithwicks, the Irish ale.

Nice malty taste with hints of licorice, body is quite thin but it doesn’t matter. Mouthfeel is a bit carbonated and bitter, aftertaste is slightly sour.
