4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tiefschwarz mit cremigem Schaum langer Standzeit. Röst- und Kaffearomen mit süßlicher Kaffeesahne. Mittlerer Körper, für 4,8% erstaunlich vollmundig. Der Kaffee- besiegt den Röstmalzgeschmack. Mittellang nachklingender Abgang. Sehr süffig und fast perfekt ausgewogen im Geschmack. Superb!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Color is almost black with rocky head. Aroma of malt, cereal, roasty, smoke. Taste is light bitter with just a bit sourness. Light body, watery texture, soft to flat carbonation. Not big fan of dry stouts, but for the price is good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
0.5l bottle. Black body, thick and creamy beige head. Head tastes bitter. Carbonation is OK, maybe a bit more than what you expect from a stout. Body is thin-to-medium, silky, but again, not as silky as some British or Irish stouts. Taste is mostly dry, cocoa and dark chocolate. very nice stout-bitter aftertaste. Maybe some fruity and spicy tones, very moderate. A good stout with a hint of Czech lager-like character. A good combination, maybe lacking a bit of complexity.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 10.04.2009
Aroma is slightly sweet with cocoa, oaty notes and hints of coffee. Flavour has chocolate, oat, some coffee notes anf licorice. A positive surprise; didn’t expect that they would produce stout this good in Czech Republic.
