2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Dark brown with an orangey glow and a creamy, beige head leaving some laces. Sweetish aroma of roasted malt. Very full body - huge body - with tons of roasted malt and a lightly burned edge. Sweet - cloyingly sweet. Like a Danish "Hvidtřl" on mescaline. Basically no bitterness. Quite inharmonious. 290406

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle brought back from Prague. Very deep ruby colour with thin lasting beige head. Very vinous in the mouth with plenty of heat and lots of fruit. Sweet blackberry, damson and plum. Choc and fruit on the aroma. Port like in mouth with lots of warming dark fruits with a touch of choc. Quite a stunning beer actually. Amazingly alcoholic but full of flavour. I agree with maeib, this is an excellent nightcap.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, at home.
Dark brown with a little brrown head, which quickly is gone. Aroma heavy malty (brown sugar, chocolate), light hoppy? Flavor heavy sweet, long duration. Full body, syrupy, soft carbonated. Heavy in alcohol. To sweet for me.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours the color of a rich stout, black with crimson edges. A gently carbonated head of tan color forms and quickly recedes. Flavors are sweet and chocolatey. The sweetness is of smooth molasses, and the chocolate is pure with no raost or coffee notes. There is a moderate hop presence which strugles to compete with the high gravity. Alcohol is aparent but not overly so.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small light brown creamy head, subsides quickly into thin ring. Seemingly black body, but really dark red. Sweet, perfumed roasty aroma with strong toffee notes. Extremely sweet toffee taste with roasty coffee notes. An excellent bock.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. A very dark brown colourd beer which looks quite flat in the glass. The aroma is full and welcoming: berries, tar, licquorice, and thick malts. The taste is thick and alcoholic. Very sweet, no doubt too sweet for many, but to me really tasty. Sugary jammy blackberry flavours and big warming alcohol. A full long body. Some might say this is quite crude, but I found it a lovely nightcap.
