2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle. Finland.
Dark reddish brown colour with small to average size tan head.
Toasted malt, grain, caramel, mild butter (diacetyl) and mild hoppiness in aroma. Flavour is sweet caramel malt and buttery diacetyl with some mild dry hoppy kick. Slightly too sweet for me.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Premier in Halifax. Dark brown body, with a good sized beige head. (3+) Sweet malt aroma with notes of toasted nutty malt. (6+) Flavour starts with a wave of nutty chocolate up front giving way to a dry toasty malt finish. Light metalic hints in the finish/aftertaste. Palate is on the light side but is smooth. Lacks overall depth but was a pleasant surprise for its quaffability!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mahogany brown, tall beige head, moderate lace. Sweet caramel aroma, with a little spice. Caramel malt flavour predominates, a little chocolate, and a fruity ester makes its way into the palate every now and then. Smooth, medium bodied for a lighter alcohol style, and with good balance. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Munich. Cola brown pour with an impressively persistent beige collar. Complex aroma mingling toffee, prune, heady apple fruit, molasses, soap, Bovril, delicate menthol-like hops. Raisiny fruit, yeast extract and caramel predominate in the mouth, opening sweetly but drying out with Twiglet and cocoa. Teetering right on the border between dunkel and schwarz. Either way, a tasty and well-conditioned offering.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
i assume this is what they call lobkowicz tmave outside of czecholand. not too thick. starts quite refreshing and the flavour doesn’t kick in till after a couple of half litres. coffee and a hint of prunes.
