COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Produced from special dark malts, which is why even its foam is dark.

Brown color, nice head. Weak aroma of caramel and dried fruits. Same in taste. Not too sweet happily. Low bitterness. Quite drinkable. Like it.

mickmac (484) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - AUG 31, 2010
Bottle. Average size tan foamy head over a clear dark garnet body. Aroma/taste of molasses, dark sugar, toast and dark chocolate. A bit watery, thin light bodied.

I had this beer on tap in Prague, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The nose is a sweet smoke, pouring deep brown with a rich caramel head and complex body of caramel and butterscotch, a touch of hardwood smoke, a touch of brown sugar and a slight splash of whiskey.

Oh goody a bottle with medals on it, wait a minute it hasn’t got one from AIBA, sh*t everyone gets one of them - even Outback Brewery got one for having pretty labels - not a good start. Now on to the beer - pours a neat red-brown w/- a big rocky head. Aroma is dominated by caramel upfront followed by stone fruit (plums) and a touch of cinimmon (sp). Flavour is sparse and sweet mostly caramel maltishness. What is there is quite good but is sooo watered down it loses the plot. More malt & alcohol please! Still as a mid-strenght beer if you’re driving it beats most of the sh*t we brew and drink over here. Cheque please.

I liked this - it was quite sweet, but not as much so as one may expect. Had a little smokey kind of taste, which made it interesting.

Derbeth (468) - Kraków, POLAND - DEC 28, 2014
Draught. Aroma is not very intensive, with some roasted malt. Light sweetness, only slight bitterness. Light body. Nothing special, but goes well with Czech food.

YK23 (465) - Haifa, ISRAEL - JUN 3, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2009 From tap: a little roasty, pretty sweet, nice maltyness, mainly caramel, some wet wood, some rye(?), dry finish, pretty stale and weak tasting, not impressive.

darrennelson12 (455) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2013
On tap in Prague at U Kroka ... poured a nice dark brown. Aroma of sweet caramel and cocoa. Body was a little lightier for a dunkel. Overall quite nice; a quite hoppy/tart at the end versus German dunkels but still enjoyable

Niksko (454) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 27, 2013
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.
