Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 14, 2008
In short: A gross extra-syrupy messy black lager of some kind.
How: Bottle at Klásterní Pivovar Strahov, Prague
The look: Black body with a off-white ring of foam
In long: Way way too sweet and syrupy. Aggressively sweet. Half a bottle grossed me out. Half Doppelbock half porter. Some black liquorice and some raisins manage to get trough that gross unrefined sweetness. Really gross. To me Czech beers are like Czech women, the bigger they are the less interesting I find them.

Bottle. Frothy lightbrown good mostly deminishing head. Dark re amber colour. Powerfull malty aroma. Nice powerfull flavor, loads of licorice. Light sweet long finish. Oily palate, slightly alcoholic. Strange but nice beer.

TheDog (585) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2008
Bottle. Dark brown clour with nice beige head. Aroma of dark sugar, alcohol and sweet roasted malts. Not much carbonation. Way too sweet for me and I strugle to drink more than half the beer! It´s just too alcoholic and sweet at the same time. This one being the worst Primator of the series, of very okay beers.

ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - FEB 23, 2008
Random pick @ U Medvidku, Praha; seems I didn’t quite strike it rich w/ this one. It’s only been sittting around a few months, but it pours a cola-brown with likewise carbonation. Nose is a splenda-like supersweet toffee, along with stale pistachios. On the first swig, cherry-flavored nyquil takes center stage, leaving a sticky residue on the palate. It goes downhill from there. Not much else, other than charcoal smoked malts in the finish. Oh well, there’s a couple left to have made it worthwhile.

DruncanVeasey (7881) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2008
Bring out the big guns. Or not. Pours deep ruby with filthy beige suds. Nose aggressively sweet and alcoholic, with any intriguing blackened malt, nuttiness or sticky dark fruit drowned in sugar. Thinnish and sickly at the abv...really struggling with this one...the dominant flavour is sugarbowl, and not even burnt or brown or caramelised, just neat, siphoned-into-the-bottle white sugar sickliness. Crumb of charcoal afters. Criminally saccharine big dark beer. Broke my heart.

coldbrewky (1536) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JAN 25, 2008
Bottle courtesy of JDKrone, brought back from his wanderings in the Czech republic. Pours a crisp dark abmer brown with a good amount of light getting thru. Head is tinged greenish-tan with quick dissipation to film like head for remainder. A huge hit of sickenly sweet malts and sugar smack you in the mouth like Larry Holmes Vs. Jerry Cooney. A spicy cough syrup like finish with a strong punch of alcohol that is overburdened with the syruypy malt/sugar body (the old one two). Now I know why I saw lots of bottlecaps littering the bus and train stations. Stay with the fine pilseners and dunkels.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 1, 2008
Inviting in appearance, a medium-sized, tan, frothy head covers a deep brown body with blood red highlights. Rich would be an understatement of the aroma’s sweetness; lots of chocolate, dates, prunes and caramel / toffee in this one. Strongly perfume-like as well, with additional elements of raisins, prunes and Cabernet Sauvignon. There’s also a hint of smoke / tar ever present in the background. Powerful, but sometimes a little sharp with the perfume / orange skin notes. The flavour is dessert-sweet as expected with lots of caramel, chocolate and dates throughout alongside a light, tangy nuttiness. Finishes with a bit of bitter orange skins. Pears and cinnamon creep into the mix with some warmth. Quite tasty overall, but a little to acidic and bitter at times. Velvet textured, full bodied with soft and tight carbonation. Interesting and tasty, but I’m quite glad I was able to split the bottle with J. rather than take the whole thing on by myself...it could have become quite cloying by the end. I’d like to see this one with a few year’s age on it; a little more smoothness would have drastically increased my enjoyment.

Tranquillity (1584) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2007
Dark brown colour, light brown small head with small bubbled. Aroma of Finnish mämmi, liqurice. Taste strong liqurice, medium-long finish.
