3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a deep brownish color with a healthy tan head that fades slowly to good lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, roasted malt bit of chocolate and spice. Taste of dark fruit, some chocolate, roasted malt and bit of coffee in the background. Very mild bitterness and a slightly sweet finish.. Moderate body, a bit on the light side. Smooth and creamy but missing something to make it distinctive. Decent beer but comes up a bit short for a Czech beer.

On tap at The Czech Inn, Dublin. Deep reddish brown colour with thick off-white head. Aroma is heavy caramel, light red fruit, and a slight vegetal note. Taste brings a lot of rich, sweet caramel with some hints of herb and red/dark fruit (although not too much to be honest). Pretty sweet all round with a lot of lingering sugary caramel stuff going on - becomes fairly cloying after a while. Not too bad, but I can't imagine drinking too much of this.

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

Clear dark amber with light brown lacing foam head. Aroma is coffee, some caramel. Taste is bit dissaointing after the great aroma. No aftertaste it’s gone when swallowed. (Moscow 201310)

Quite rich, sweet, little bit of grainy earthy coffee flavour. one of those beers that you can enjoy one of but wouls struggle on the 2nd or the third. Too rich, too sweet, but nice complex flavours all the way though. Give it a go definately.

It has a pleasant look about it, with a small lacy head. Quite toffeish but I agree as far as dark beers go it is quite light - but in the same token - rich. Not bad at all. cheers

Bottled. Licorice aroma with some sweetness. Slightly malty, sweet taste with notes of licorice and caramel. A bit thinbodied. Still, a nice Dunkel.
