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.

This was a weird one. Kind of came across as a super vanilla driven, sweet cold drip coffee.... Very sweet, almost lactose-like. Weird

Decent brown pour w/ a tan head that doesn’t leave much lacing. The aroma is an odd malt scent. The taste is primarily all malt w/ a very weird & off putting finish. The beer isn’t that bad until the odd taste lingers on the tongue. Not good!

This is just so moorish and clean tasting, one cannot stop drinking this dark lager. It has a slight sweetness and low carbonation that does not fill you up. Add to this is that after a night of them I always wake up the next day feeing on top of the world.

Lakritsia, siirappia. Aika lämmin, mutta hiukan vetinen. Eläinpuistopäivän viimeinen paupakalja.

Malty vinegar aroma. Dark copper color. Taste is sweet caramel malt and sugar followed with a tart vinegar flavor. I think the lines at this bar may be bad.

loco_gallego (38) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 11, 2014
Couleur brune-rouge, mousse beige claire modeste disparaissant rapidement mais une fine couche subsiste. Carbonation faible. Arôme faible et peu intéressant. Goűt un poil toasté, peu de force, petite amertune en fin de bouche. Type de bičre intéressante, assez bien balancée.
