3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Born By 27.06.2006 L2706C2359
Pours with a deep, ruby body and a never-ending, mocha head (at cellar temp). Malty, roasted aromas with smoky peat and mossy slate/iron. Roasted grain is forefront to the flavor, with mild semi-sweetness to follow and a hint of bitters to end. Glancing below, I like Davecooks’ descriptor of, "a brown sugar note (without the sweetness)". An impressive brew from the Czech Republic.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a dark black with a notorious white head that quickly disappears to the edge of the glass. Armoa is of metal and skunked malt. Tastes almost like a Bud Light in its sour, light lager malt with no hop presence. It does not taste fermented or properly mashed. Not a good beer.
