judasbeer (431) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 29, 2009
Clear amber brown color. Medium, frothy head. Herbal and grassy aroma with distinct sour yeasty notes and light sulphurous, resinous feel. Crisp grassy hops initially, Moderate sweet molasses, caramel and liquorice mouthfeel leading to crisp herbal, slightly roasted bitternes. Light to medium bodied, lively carbonation. Quite unique.

Ibrew2or3 (7086) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 3, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2008 Courtesy of Degarth. Pours clear brown-ish amber with thin tan head. The aroma is fruity with plums, cherries, prunes and raisins. Very little malt noticed. The taste is mildly fruity with esters moving into a note of malt astringency tartness then a pretty solid smokiness. Midway and into the finish a Munich like grainy malt rises up to join the smoke sensation. Pretty cool.

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 3, 2008
Bottled. Deep ruby colour (near black), small beigeish brown head. Aroma is mild caramel malts, sugar and some balancing mild notes of hops. Flavour is much the same. Compared to the Velikonoční Podkrkonošsky Speciál Tmavý, this one lacks the candyish sweetness and pretty much the roasted notes.
Earlier Rating: 4/3/2007 Total Score: 3.3
Bottled. Dark rubyish brown colour with mediumsized brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, caramel and some sweet dark sugary notes. Flavour is caramel, toffee, slightly roaste dmalts and some hops. Candyish sweetness lurking in the background. Not too bad.

Easter beer. Dark ruby colour. Light brown head. Malty taste. Some hints of glue in the taste. Some taste of hops in the finish.

ogreface (1345) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 20, 2008
A Budapesti Cseh Sörfesztivál egyik legjobb söre volt az én számomra!Finom pörkölt magos, kávés és nem túl édes!Nagy kár hogy egyenlőre csak a fesztivál idején lehetett kapni!

janir (216) - Oulu, FINLAND - APR 8, 2008
Light brown head disappears fast but leaves nice lacing. Color is dark reddish-brown. Aroma is sweet and a bit roasted malts. Sweet malts and smoke in flavor. Aftertaste is dry and bitter. Flavor contains also some odd nuances.
