3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated 01 01 2009
Bottle brown, 500 ml, ext 21 P, contains wheat malt, Zatec hops, hops extract, sugar,
Appearance pours very deep, dark amber to cooper body, shiny, clear but with minute sediments floating in the body texture, carbonation of the body is mild, head is initially very huge, off white, head is very thick and dense in structure, slowly decreasing to medium, leaving very good lacing,
Aroma very sweet, sugary, syrupy aroma, notes of caramel, burned sugar, toffee, moderately alcoholic, nice candy, sweet dough, fresh cookies, tasty doughnut but aroma is not overly sweet, there are noticeable notes of graphit, fat Bohemian maltyness, wheat, grains, very ssertive and valuable Zatec hops, definitely chalky,
Flavour front is sticky sweet and alcoholic which is present even in the alcoholic retronasal aroma, a good beer for a dessert and to be accompained by a sweet doughnut, white chockolate or cake, full bodied, very fat malty and high in Zatec hops, livening the body texture and making it not dull, what I like about this beer is that the good quality Bohemian ingredients show of here and play a very good part, finish duration is long,
Palate body is full, texture is syrupy, carbonation on palate is rather soft, finish feel is sticky sweet from sugar with Zatec hoppy nose, slightly salty, very grainy with moderate alcoholic dryness

Nagyon szep sötet arany szine van.Habja is szep csak hamar összeesik.De ez nem roható fel hibakent,hiszen igen magas az alkohol tartalma.Illata edeskes,picit mustos.Ize is edes,rendkivül gyümölcsös es mazsolas,kicsit csipös.Kellemesen erezni benne az alkoholt is,szepen melegit.Nagyon összetett és sürü,testes fözet.Utoizeben mar erezni egy keves komlos kesernyesseget is.Nagy sör,ünnepi estekre,vagy pazar vacsorak befejezesere!

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle from tesco in prague. pours a clear orange-amber with a frothy white head. aroma is caramel malts, some dried fruits, sweet hop citrus, and some spice. taste is toasty malt at first, which gives way to a sweet caramel-cereal swell, followed by a sweetish finish. alcohol is pretty noticable. a bit one-dimensional. the initial flavors tend to fade pretty quickly but there is a nice dry aftertaste. overall pretty sweet, but not as sweet as the primator 24°. pretty full bodied with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. pretty rich and sweet, but not sticky-sweet by any means. a good brew overall, will try again, but i agree - it’s a bit of a palate destroyer (the alcohol is just a bit too intense).

Bottle from Tesco, Prague. Orange coloured with no head. Strange aroma of boston beans and caramel. Flavour of caramel, with some grassy hops and a slightly bitter finish. Odd.
