3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cherryish chestnut colour with a quicky dissipating head. Toasty, nutty aroma but hints at some unpleasantness. Malty palate with earthy-toffeeish flavours. Thin and thick at the same time- lots of unfermented sugars but maybe not enough lagering time to bring them all together into a cohesive unit. Hint of nuttiness. Sweet, earthy finish. Good, but not great example of Czech tmavy.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, bought @ Gallerie Piva, Prague.
Pours deep brown with a small, creamy, off-white film head. Aroma is sweet, lots of caramel with some light roasted notes. Medium carbonation, fine, dry, mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet - a bit too much, even. Caramel at first, some sugary notes and then a good, dry, chocolate, hoppy finish. It is very sad that there is that initial overly sweet sugary note - otherwise, it would have been great.

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