KyotoLefty (7550) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 22, 2010
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.

inbirraveritas (1349) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 1, 2010
0.5 l bottle as a gift. Non-transparent dark brown (nearly black) colour with a beige coloured medium head on top. Roasty and sweet smell, sweet taste. Flavour’s of toffee and coffee, aroma’s flavorous and of roasted/caramell malt and citrus hops. The finish is coffeebitter and moderate dry. The body’s medium, texture’s light sticky. Overall for me a delicious stuff, which is beside of that since years my No.1 Slovakian beer...

Bottle: Deep ruby-amber coloured, thick creamy beige head that slowly collapses; sweet aroma of roasted malt and molasses; light to moderate sweet flavour, light bodied; light roast-malty bitterness in the light to moderate sweet finish. Not unpleasant.......

rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2009
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.

dreamloomer (66) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUL 29, 2009
Almost black, with a high brown head. Aroma is not very strong, with roasty notes. Flavour is very rich for that extract, with a strong, roasty bitterness.

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.

judasbeer (431) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 31, 2009
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. ;)

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - 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.
