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

Bottle brown, 500 ml, extract of wort 11%
Appearance: Head is huge, frothy and very intensive, almost creamy, light brown. Head is not firm but regular, it leaves some traces of lacing initially. Body is low in carbonation, dark cherry, reddish, ruby.
Aroma: Yeast a little bit, a little bit carbonation nose and metallic, brown sugar, caramel, wallnut, cappuccino, creamy but refreshing, some nice malted barley.
Flavour&Palate: Very well balanced, roastyness, bitterness, medium bodied (a little bit wattery) but quite well as for dunkel, drinkeable, perfectly refreshing, very nice carbonation, peanut butter, in the middle of the beer slight alcoholic nose. The good drinkable beer combining refreshment with dessert.

Awesome dunkel. Dark colour, roasted cofee flavour, some caramel notes. Very creamy with pleasant dry end. Splendid; if this is a mainstream Slovak beer then I’m moving south.
