3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle. Thanks to Oakes for sending me this one. My first beer of this style. Dark brown colour with a nice tan head. Head reduced to a thin layer after a couple minutes but stayed for the rest of the beer. Malt and nuts in the aroma of this one. The flavour was sweet with some hops in the finish. Good mouth feel. Unfortuniately this is another beer that I will have to go on a long road trip to enjoy again.

Deep chestnut color with a wonderful fluffy cap. Moderate head retention, laces the glass. Aromas of chocolate and sweet bread. Medium bodied...silky mouth feel...mellow, toasty-malty and slightly sweet with some slight fruit tones and a semi-dry charred finish... a very decent Czech dunkel.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the bottle: Pours a dark opaque brownish red with a medium off white bubbly head that thins quickly.
Aroma is roasty malt and nutty, coffeeish bitterness. Black cherry.
Flavour is quite nutty, malty. Smooth but tasty. A little thin through the finish.
I just had a ’Demon’ before this and I’d be interested in trying some of the other Lobkowicz brews. Quality beers.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap in Vrchlabi:
Fine cherries and roasted chocolate invite the dessert lover. Licorice increases the sweetness’s complexity, and the stouty foam sure is appealing.
Candy sweetness and chocolate-covered berries make this richer than most tmavé offerings. Smooth body, unidimensionally sweet, but very good for what it is attempting to do.
Low-fat black forest cake.
