3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
This Tmavy delights with its cherry-like fruity angles, its intelligently roasted malts and its earthy hop bitterness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A tower of foam protects the dark brown with mahogany highlights.
-Mouthfeel is frothy and lean.
-Drinkability is high for its strength.
-Light chocolate is also contributed by the roasted malts.
On tap at U Slovanské Lipy, Praha.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at U Slovanske Lipy (02/03/13). Beautiful dark red pour, tenacious just off white foam. Aroma of cherries, vanilla, light chocolate, litterally black forest cake. Taste is malty, sweet, cake like, cherry, vanilla. Super silky palate, a tad sweet but surprisingly not that much given the flavor. Good, although maybe too sweet.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep mahogany brown with bit red, almost black, clear, big frothy head is medium long and fades by big bubbles. Aroma is sweet and malty, caramel, dark fruits, bit light coffee. Light feel and body, drier than aroma, bit harsh taste actually, grass, carbonation evident, finish dry. Expected sweeter by aroma. Bit harsh flavor, probably works best with some food.
