2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2010 Huge cream-to-brownish head, very stable over deep garnet-brown beer. Thick roasted malts smell, melanoidins ŕ gogo, sweet, slightly woody. Sweet, liquorice-like with a burnt-metallic bittereness that doesn’t chase the syrupy sugarflavour. Chemical flavour that keeps hanging around. Quite slick, but light body. Way too sweet dull Dunkel. Many thanks to Lenka, Tomăš and Peter.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, bought and drank in Kosice. Good roasted aroma. Very sweet flavor, with caramel, chocolate, and cola. Not very roasted at all. Creamy, too sweet, and also has some artificial flavor. Not at all good from the bottle.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught in Párkány/Sturovo, Slovakia.
Dark brown colour with pale brown head. Lots of dried fruits in aroma along with dried plums or darker berries and old thermos coffee. Lots of butterscotch and tad youghurty due to long keg life in the pub. Bit coffee and quite some dried fruits again, and a mellow darkness all along, before a low, yet subtle bitterness sets in. Low-medium bodied.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2009 4.1 % ABV. as mentioned before several times. Dark brown color with creamy, mostly lasting beige head. Sweet roasted coffee, dark chocolate, mild prunes, slight coke character, molasses in the aroma.
Sweet roasted coffee, chocolate, caramel, molasses flavors with underlying dried fruits. Roasted dry finish. Medium bodied, balanced, lively, but gentle carbonation. Balanced, delicate, remarkable slovakian dunkel.
Re-rate: Nice dark brown appearance with poorly lasting and lacing, light brown head. The aroma is something between milk chocolate and coffee,
with nutty and almost coke-like feel. The flavor is tasty and balanced, maybe has a bit too artifical sweetness. Decent carbonation with
light but not too watery body. Not a bad one if u want to experiment with slovak industrial-mass beers. ;)
