2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very dark chcolate brown with a fizzy but well formed head. Some lager notes on the nose, very faint roasted malts, and just a fraction metallic. Very similar in the mouth; the roast picks up a notch but still very much in the subtle mould, probably not inappropriate for the style. Drank at the end of the shelf life, and could have suffered a little as a result.

Bottle. Dark brown with medium head. Kinda mainstream. Very mild and non threatening. Almost boring.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big beige creamy head with some lace in it over dark red, seemingly black, body. Smoky, meaty aroma with some rubber. Sweetish, roasty malt taste, thinnish, with a lovely, velvety, sooty, burnt toast aftertaste. Silky smooth mouthfeel. Silky sootiness lingers. A very good beer. It could do with some more body, but I just love the smooth burntness. (0.5l bottle.)

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2008 50cl bottle. Very dark brown, lasting dark beige head. Of the 3 cernys I had I would say that this is my favourite. Malt aroma is better balanced, there is a more sour charcoal malt finish. Less toffee dominated, bit like a mild. Attractive roast malt aroma. good choc/coffee finish. Bit powdery.3.2/5.0
Re-rate On tap at Plachetnice, Plzen. More choccy than I remembered, good fullness. Enjoyable.

Bottle. Creamy off-white mostly lasting head. Very dark amber colour. Week aroma and thin flavor. Very watery, but it is still an ok beer although I was a bit disapointed.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark, dark brown with a generous beige head. Smells pretty good, some molasses and roast malt, with rye bread coming through on tasting. Falls away once it hits the mouth unfortunately, and this is essentially due to the low abv %. However, the low alcohol level means that more of the flavour develops in the mouth without being overpowered - not too much body, but a lasting finish. The more I drank this the more I enjoyed it. Certainly a good mid strength alternative.

This is a nice thick dark beer with a fantastic sweet and malty flavor and a thick and creamy head of foam.

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2006 Fadøl fået på Restaurant Golden Prag. + øl (50 cl) købt i Tyskland + på fad i Prag
Sort-rød øl med højt lysebrunt skum. Smager som en mellemting mellem en dunkel og en stout. God humle.
Er mild og let drikkelig, men har ikke de store nuancer.
