The baron ladislav III sets the tone for this brew with his develish looking picture on the bottle. A murky ditry gold color to it with little head. A very mild nut/caramel aroma. Fairly malty flavored with some caramel/choc/coffee hints appearing from time to time. Not too bad, i expected worse.

Brown colour, creamy head, disappears in few minutes. Roasted malts aroma, with coffee hints. The flavour is malty and sweet, with strong caramel and toffee traces. Quite bitter aftertaste, with coffee hints. Not bad, but not particularly delicate, complex or interesting.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2004 Dark brown with a light tan head. Big-bubbled head died fairly quickly; some lace patterns remained. Caramel-dipped apple nose. Palate was light-to-medium bodied, but it had times that it felt watery, and times where it seemed to thicken a little. Malt flavors were sweet (caramel, toffee) and a little roasted and toasted. Had a strange, "synthetic" quality, just like this brewery's other beers. Somewhat of a plastic-like flavor. Bitterness was very mild and weak. Overall, seemed a bit unbalanced and strange. Not bad, but didn't do much for me at all.

Red/brown color; head had medium to big bubbles; nose of fragrant malt, very appealing. Good initial mouthfeel. Crisp with good malt.

heykevin (1273) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - JAN 5, 2003
Very deep brown in color. Funky off-sweet aroma. Dark, muddy malt flavor, with a strange sweetness in the finish. Very bitter chocolate and caramunich flavor. I’ve still never met a czech dark I liked. Way too sweet in the finish, so much that it makes my teeth hurt.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 25, 2002
Deep deep ruby brown under a small medium lasting medium beige head. Faint roast malt, cola and coffee aroma when cold and sweeter sticky malt when warmer. Medium thin body. Palate is kinda weak and nondescript. Medium roasted malt with minimal hop bitter flavours. Weak sweet malty finish and aftertaste. I’m still looking for the hint of chocolate. Not as good as the Prince in my book.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - OCT 26, 2002
UPDATED: APR 9, 2003 Big Saaz nose and flavor which works wonderfully with the light chocolate malt flavors. The palate is like silk. Rather impressed with this one.
