Sweet, very sweet taste. A nice chocolate roasted flavour with notes of caramel. At first the after-taste seemed somewhat sour, but improved as I went on. A reall hearty brew.

This is a very good, very drinkable and a very enjoyable Baltic Porter in my opinion. The appearance was a large sized tan head that was creamy and smooth with fine-small sized bubbles. The nose was malty, coffee, caramel and it reminded me of the aroma of a chocolate malt. The flavor was coffee notes and chocolate with a smooth palate. This beer was medium bodied and had a fair amount of lacing to it.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 10, 2003
Dark reddish brown with a tan head, not big but nice; Interesting old world malt aroma, kind of rustic, like dried rose petals and some spice. Very nice flavor that reminds more of doppelbock than porter, a seemingly common thing in eastern europe(Zyweic porter, Aldaris porter, etc)- whatever, me like!

thedm (4887) - Fort Wayne, USA - NOV 10, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2003 This brew poured a large foamy head of fine to medium sized light brown colored long lasting bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated dark ruby red brown colored almost semi-opaque body and a good lacing. The aroma was nice with notes of alcohol, sweet caramel, dark malt and something else not quite so good. The mouthfeel was of a medium strength alcohol, smooth somewhat flat and had a mild tingly alcohol afterbite. The flavor was medium strength with mild caramel that was especially prevalent in the afterbite. I noted that I liked this beer and rated it as "Good". My second sample of this brew was not quite as good in the flavor and I noted that it was "off" and did not match the aroma. It had more of a medicinal sourness that reminded me of betadine solution. Dropped rating down 1 over all and down one for flavor on the rerate.

Aurelius (3908) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2003
Nice, cocoa-sweet aroma. Deep rootbeer brown, bad label, good bottle. Somehow watery -- there was a bit of a gap between the initial sweetness and the bitter chocolate finish. Chalky, medium bodied and the bittering grows and goes long. A near miss, just needs a little something. ABV well hidden.

Pleasantly surprised. Pours with a crimson red to dark brown color. Little to no head - no lacing. Aroma of raisins and moist baked brown bread with a bit of molasses thrown in for good measure. Sweet, malty flavor with some coffee notes. Alcohol is apparent but hidden well. Has some dopplebock qualities to it. Luxuriant thick mouthfeel. Overall, a great find.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2003 I want to be loved by you! You, and nobody else but you!
The appearance of this beer is Very similar to an incredible Imperial Stout, The body is a rich crimson black, hues of amber beam through in the shallow areas; yet it also fills the glass with a lush 3” caramel colored head.
The aromas and flavors are full and plentiful, big doses a sweet malt brings the presence of figs, apricots, prunes, chocolate, caramel, toffee, very complex and appetizing!
After every sip this beer leaves behind a fine silky lacing with a medium palate, a bit thinner than I had expected.
What a great find, I will certainly be re-buying this one!! FantasticO !!

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - OCT 3, 2003
Pours a very dark brown with a nice tan head that lasts for quite a while but leaves no lacing. Smells of roasted malts and dark coffee. Quite nice. Flavor reminds me of sweetened coffee with... a hint of raspberry? There's just enough bitterness to make this damn good. Mouthfeel is very creamy with some noticible mineral and almost saltiness to it. Overall I think this is likely one of the best Baltic Porters and definately the best Czech beer I've had. Very nice.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 25, 2003
Pours a dark ruby brown with a thick tan head. Aroma is sweet and sugary and reminds me of a doppelbock. Actually, if I had to guess, I'd classify this as a doppelbock. Lots of sweet caramel malt flavor, but no roasted malt flavor at all. Very smooth, though, and the sweetness is enjoyable. This is probably the best Czech beer I've had. Oh yeah, and the 8% abv, you coulda fooled me.

BillKismet (3295) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 27, 2003
Dark cola body and head appearance. Initially a sickly rotted fruit aroma accompanied the smell of prunes, plum, and wine, but fortunately this soon dissapeared. Pruny flavor with deep vinous notes. Flavorful grape appears towards the end of the experience. Not as well balanced as many baltic porters, but has the same trademark flavors. Rich, salty chocolate finish.
