nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 10, 2009
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.

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.

vjekoo (15) - CROATIA - JUN 10, 2008
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

Rated: 28.06.2007
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.
