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.

obguthr (5718) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 5, 2016
Tobacco, molasses, kibble, smoke aroma. Ruby brown, medium tan head, little retention. Sweet kibble and molasses, subtle charred meat notes. Light body, soft carbonation. A bit cloying even for the style, but quite enjoyable.

Cybuch (110) - Muszyna, POLAND - SEP 5, 2016
W aromacie przypalona skórka od chleba, ciemne słody, trochę kawy zbożowej, karmel, przyjemny, jednak mało intensywny. Barwa brunatna z rubinowymi przebłyskami, piana skąpa, opadająca. W smaku przede wszystkim jest słodkie, przypomina Książęce Ciemne Łagodne, szukając cukru w składzie natrafiłem na substancję słodzącą E954 (sacharynę) co pozostawię bez komentarza. Nie jest to może ulepek, ale słodkość jest przesadzona. Poza tym jest metaliczne, test skórny nie potwierdza, więc może to od chmielu. Jest też trochę wodniste. Wysycenie wysokie, mogłoby być mniejsze, goryczki brak. Bez słodzenia byłoby lepsze, tak to jest kiepsko.

Nurmis (428) - 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 (1274) - 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.
