2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
500ml bottle, best before November 2007, drank in June 2007.
I chose this beer (from my stash) because I had some Chilli Edam cheese my wife had bought for my Belgian beer night and I wouldn’t let her serve it because it would have ruined the tastebuds of everyone. I wanted to eat the cheese with a beer that would complement each other. My review is for the beer before I started eating the chilli cheese, although I enjoyed it more washing down the biscuits and cheese.
Poured into my Gordon’s Finest Gold thistle glass, it looks great.
Dark with an off white head.
The aroma is of sweet malts, the taste is weak and thin, so too the mouthfeel.
I thought this might be disappointing, I wasn’t mistaken, it will help wash down the chilli cheese.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - Deep ruby red with a light brown head which quickly fades to a ring. Aroma is coffee, roasted malt, hint of vanilla and burning coals. Taste is disappointingly watery - a bit toasty, weak coffee, spice, hint of smoke, cocoa, medium sweetness. Medium body strong carbonation. Soapy.

Very good dark beer from Czech! Strong taste but still not too spicy. Similar taste as Murphys stout or Guinnes.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours in with a nice deep black clear colour, slightly brownish nice head. Aroma is a bit caramel with toffee and dark chocolate. Taste is well balanced sweet and bitter, nice toffee, coffee, dark chocolate aftertaste. Palate is fresh, with nearly a bit too much carbonation, but this makes it refreshing.
Good overall dark beer, nice aromas, better than I´d have thought.
