3.8%??! Tap, all over Prague. Ruby tints and beige lace. Sweet malty chocolatey sessions. Cocoa Pops milk with dunked butter cookie. Simple, sweet, beautiful late morning/lunchtime beer...almost a drainpour by evening...way too sweet to be serious. Dark malts beaten to death with the sugarspoon. Overly saccharine tasty restorative.

Bottle. Poured brown with a ivory head that laced a bit. Aroma was sweet with notes of caramel malts. Flavor was more grainy, but the caramel malts were still present. The body was a bit light.

Have they mixed this beer with cola?? It's appearance is like cola, and the aroma and flavor is mainly sweet, perhaps a little burnt caramel.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very dark brown, but not quite black. A tall, creamy white head. Aroma of burnt malt. Slight caramel and coffee. A touch of hops and raisins (apples?). Aroma stronger than usual. Sweetish flavor, lots of caramel, not as much roasted flavor as is in the nose. Slight burnt aftertaste, still sweet, a bit of hop dryness, but not much. Not roasted enough. Not enough hops really. A nice tasting beer, to be sure, but on the sweet end of the style. A little more like a German dunkel than is usual for a Czech dark.
