Light amber colored "porter" pivo with 9% alcoh. Doesn’t taste like a traditional english porter but is smooth, malty and easy to drink for such a high gravity beer.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle, at Kookfest, September 2006. Sweet and sickly with burning alcohol. I didn’t really pick up anything else at all. OK for getting blasted quick I suppose. More than a little of the Tennents Super, or other cheap wino lagers about it. Very crude and unimpressive.

Bottle. Yipes, very sweet and alcoholic. Gold/amber colour. Aroma shows some plummy fruit and alcohol. MOuthfeel is very raw, with alcohol very evident. Sweet sticky fruit flavour, with some sugary notes. Very rough and pretty much undrinkable.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ Kookfest. Strong sweetish malt and moderate alcohol. Despite not normally liking beers with lots of apparent alcohol or that are too sweet I found this quite enjoyable, although I wouldnt finish a whole bottle.

botlle. Slightly hazy, golden-amber, smallish crown on top. Aroma was primary of grainy character with plenty of sweet malt wrapped with alcohol. This lager had sticky malty base with strong smooth alcoholic presence. Smooth, strong lager.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks Radek. Works out from 21% gravity to a very strong ABV, not available in old Communist days. Lots of barley, and some wheat. Yellow, soapy head. Pale malts and other malts. Bold taste, tongue burn from alcohol and sugar and Saaz hops. A must try lager.
