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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ciemne, nieprzejrzyste piwo o obfitej beżowej pianie, która zdobi szkło i pozostaje do końca w formie cienkiej warstewki. Aromat trochę mało intensywny kawy zbożowej. W smaku lekko wędzone i kwaskowe. Goryczka niska, ale pozostaje przyjemny kwaskowy posmak. Ogólnie dość dobre i pijalne ciemne piwo, mile mnie zaskoczyło.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl can from Prague airport. Pours clear mahogany coloured with a moderate, beige head. Malty aroma with caramel, notes of roasted malt and hints of herbs and dark fruits. Moderate to medium sweet with mild, but nice malty flavours and a light bitterness. Easy to drink and quite tasty - light, but nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This one is a nice Schwarzbier, almost Porter-like. Dark brown color with a creamy beige head. Aroma is malty with bready notes, grains, soy sauce and some toast. Taste is sweet-ish but well-balanced with the toasted backbone. Almost no carbonation, it feels even a little bit Porter-like with its subtle chocolatey aftertaste. Medium to big bodied. An interesting Schwarzbier from Czech Republic.
