Pours dark cola color with small tan head. Sweet malt, molasses, roasted malt, dark bread on the nose. The taste is not as intense as the nose, all the flavors are muted and it is a little watery. Dry finish. Body is light with active carbonation.

hvn (68) - Cracow, POLAND - NOV 3, 2015
Wygląd: Bardzo ciemna czerwień, niemalże czarne z rubinowymi refleksami. Piana szybko opada. Zapach: Paloność i chmiel. Smak: Kawa, chleb pumpernikiel. Ogólnie: Trochę puste i ciut wodniste ale mimo to solidne.

koshack (825) - Gdańsk, POLAND - OCT 18, 2015
Piana drobna, beżowa, dziurawi się i opada. Kolor ciemnobrunatny, nieprzejrzyste. W aromacie ciemne słody plus nuty lagerowe. Nic szczególnego. Słodo pachnie, ale dość wytrawne w smaku. Bardzo dobry aromat.

bonkiedeaap (492) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2015
Bottle from Albert in Prague. The beer is dark to black colored and has a stable and large cream colored head. The aroma is sweetness of caramel and roasted malts, and some bitter notes from coffee and chocolate. The taste is light bodied, little watery with some caramel sweetness to change into a dryness with notes of cacao and coffee. Nice balance between them. The finish is dry and light bitter.
