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!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle from Germany, 4.7% ABV, as Lobkow. Baron Urböhmisches Schwarzbier) Clear, dark brown colour with a reddish shine and a medium-sized, light-beige foamy head. Sweet and a bit sugary dark malty aroma with cacao and caramel. Bitter and slightly sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Dark malty, slightly roasted taste with caramel and pretty strong notes of liquorice, lingering into the moderately bitter finish, accompanied with notes of chocolate and a whiff of herbal hops. Nice session beer.

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.

3.4 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.
