Bottle (0.5L) from Pivní galerie in Prague. Pours a dark red/brown color with a small tan head that disappears quickly. Medium carbonation and body. Smell of malt and dark fruits. Its got roasty taste of dark chocolate, burnt malt and the warmer it gets a little sweetness and hint of caramel too. Nice bitterness in the aftertaste, not too much, but it doesnt really fit to the overall taste.
