Bottled from Velky Meder. Dark mahagony color, with thick ut unfortunately quickly diminishing rownish head. Nose isplum and roasted malts. a lot! Aroma is dried plums and roasted malts. Flavour is somewhat sweetened and dominating soft roast. Very nice brew in good balance. Best Slovakian beer so far.

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. ;)

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a deep red colour with a light brown head. Sweet roasted malt with hints of chocolate and licorice. Sweet in the finish with a light bitterness. It’s an OK beer just lacking balance to give a higher rating.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I am embarassed about this beer...Because i have a bottle of this beer and the label said the beer comes from Velky Saris and it has a 4.1%abv...But ratebeer said the brewery in Velky Saris is out of business...So i think i am writing about the correct brew. And it has a dark brown body and a small creamy beige head. Sweet aroma with a minimal coffee perfume. Smooth mouthfeel with dark chocolate,but sweet caramel, milld coffe and roasted malt taste. Fine roasted aftertaste. Fine and delisiciousfrom Slovakia.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown, middle caramel, a bit of smoke aroma. i wasn’t impressed with this one (it simply doesn’t have a taste fullness which every good porter should have), but i didn’t try a better porter in Slovakia, unfortunately
