Ascelja (199) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 23, 2015
Tap. Almost black body with red reflections on the sun, light brown head. Nice aroma of coffee, chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt. Taste is dry with toasted bitterness. Raw cocoa, very dark chocolate, coffee, some fruitiness and grains. Full body with solid texture on the tongue, medium carbonation.
Perfect celebration beer, St.Patric or the Sun eclipse, never mind, I like it. A honest dark lager.

Točené ve Zlech Časech: Black coloured, big stable off-white with a good lace, solid fruity-roasty nose; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, very soft, medium bodied; lingering roasty-fruity finish. Not an irish Porter, but a great brew to celebrate St. Patrick…

seritomi (336) - HUNGARY - APR 15, 2012
Hasonlóan a gyengébb tesóhoz egy kellemes cseh schwarczal állunk szemben de a testességéhez képest egy száraz karakter és még szebb textúra párosul. Csapolva tuti anyag.
