ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2013
11.2 oz bottle into a footed pilsner glass. A: Pours a dark chestnut color. The head is a creamy-looking one finger offwhite shade. It fades away at a decent rate, but leaves a miniscule ring of lacing on the glass. S: There’s a pleasant nuttiness at first, with even more pleasant grassy hops hidden beneath that. Hints of coffee abound; the aroma has a real hazelnut vibe I enjoy. The aroma could be a bit bolder, otherwise I really like it. T: At first, the hazelnut qualities from the aroma trickle down to the flavors. After that, it transitions to more raisin-y tone near the back end, before a touch of hops cleanse the finish some. It’s too sweet, I think - some more grassy hops on the back end could have really made this one special. M: This is a bit more lumbering than one would expect from a 4.5% dark lager; this has both a positive and negative effect. On the plus side, it helps give it a richer feel, but at the same token, it doesn’t have the drinkability it should feature. Carbonation is soft, which is a good match for the treacly texture. O: Being a Czech dark lager, I expected more Saaz hops. It’s certainly well made, but like I said, it’s just too sweet at the end of the day. Still pretty good.

Nurmis (349) - Oulu, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2016
0,5l bottle. Pours dark brown with small head. Some roasted malts, syrup, bit of raisin. The medium sweetness tastes artificial. Light bitterness. Not that bad.

SeniorZozo (1188) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 13, 2016
Dark amber/brownish coloured, small off-white head, burnt caramel in the nose. Sweet malty, caramel, milk chocolate and notes of dried fruits with bitterish sweet finish. Overall too sweet, nothing special here.

evannell (714) - Kraków, POLAND - APR 6, 2016
Ja wiem, że tmavy podobno można dosładzać. Ale moim zdaniem bez tej sacharyny mógłby mieć jakiś charakter. Żeby chociaż jakieś drożdże mogły tę sacharynę na coś przerobić... ale mam wrażenie, że drożdże podczas robienia tego piwa były gdzieś na wakacjach. Piwo jest słodkie i niewiele poza tym.

DoctorHU (413) - UKRAINE - MAR 31, 2016
Bottle, 33cl. Pours dark amber, and settles dark in the glass with an beige head. Sweet roasted, mildly burnt malt aroma with ripe, dark fruits, coffee and caramel. Flavour follows the nose, initial sweet, roasted malt, raisins, figs, coffee and milk chocolate. Ends dry, slightly bitter. Light-medium body, silky smoothness on the palate, perhaps just a bit watery.

tatinek (57) - South Dakota, USA - JAN 17, 2016
From green bottle poured into glass. Deep amber with small head. It has a very sweet taste similar to unfermented dark beer wort. Taste is of caramel and hint of chocolate. It has a syrupy impression yet it is thin and rather bland. It needs some character.
