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
