Malzig herber Antrunk, etwas billig aber ertragbar. Kaum hopfig, getreidig-herb und leicht bitter. Malzig-würziger Abgang. Nett!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rating #500, bottle from Norma Supermarket in Vilshofen, Germany
Brown beer with a nice head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, roasted malts and light alcohol. Flavor has a lot of chocolate, roasted malts, is pretty sweet and a bit vineous. It all ends in only a light bitterness. Medium thickless, but nicely soft. A good expierience!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from the bottle into a .5l glass. Straight to the .5l mark on my glass as is expected. Big dark tan head formed and had to wait to pour more. Quickly dissipated leaving barely any lacing on the glass. Dark ruby appearance through the glass with light behind it.
Hints of caramel, big malty aroma. Smells sweet. I didn’t really get the chocolate others said they did, but maybe that’s just my palate. A little bit of fruit, raisins and slight banana maybe from the amount of wheat added.
Sweet, with the caramel and maltiness being prominent. Banana and cloves with every sip. The clove is not as pronounced, but is there.
Creamy texture coating my mouth well after I have swallowed it down. Velvety smooth with no hint of alcohol. Very good.
Very drinkable, don’t know if I could get more than a few down in a session as the cloying sweetness would start to make me sick of drinking it, but I could drink a couple a night. And I will this evening.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Labelled as "Baron Tmavý ležák", ABV 4,7%. Interesting dark lager (dunkel?) with some fruity notes - which I haven’t seen by Czech dunkels so far - so I have to admit one of the most interesting maybe the most interesting beer from my local supermarket (Norma). I’ll definitely drink this one again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Színe inkább egy barna mág át-át világít rajta a pohár mögötti fényforrás.
Hab: középbarna szépen gyöngyökből képződő.
Illat: kellemesen enyhe pörkölt maláta és egy kis banán.
Íz: Inkább keserű, komlós, utoljára hamus, kávés.

Bottle. Light caramel/chocolate malt aroma. Dark brown color with moderate head. Sweet chocolate-caramel malt and light grass flavor with a hint of smokiness in the finish. Nice body. Surprisingly good especially for a beer I found in a discount grocery store.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It’s not really there. It’s sort of a gost. Theres no aroma that I can discern whatsoever. It’s brownish but very boring to look at. It’s very smooth and even, a nice sweet end with some coffee and toffee touches, but oh so subtle. This is a sessionable darker beer, but nothing too special. This really comes back at you later, this particular bottle is nearing the end date. would be better fresh. Though I just learned it’s retired....
