2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sweet dark frut alcoholic aroma, cane sugary roasty cloyingly sweet taste. Makes my teeth shudder and the alcohol is there showing its ugly face. I still nigh enjoyed this, probably because it was so cold outiside and Brideshead revisited started to go downhill because of Jeremy Irons’ facial hair so i needed a distraction.

Bottle from Prague.
Strong, sweet - very sweet.
Some warming alcohol, some spices. Not hops to balance this, it gets too heavy and cloying.

500ml bottle from Prague Tesco. Dark strong lager. Black bread malty - licorice, fennel seed, aniseed, alcohol. Pleasant enough. Lingering malty sweetness in the finish. Christmas pudding with sugar.OK, but too sweet and one dimensional.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brutal one. Thick deep brown body , small head. The nose said something about the flavour with some plum, raisins and toffe. And the taste is strong syrupy about plum, dark chocloate and candy sugar. Sweeeeet. Oily, strong body, well hidden alcohol. I need to drink some easier beer after that plum-bomb:)
