3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark brown with a generous off-white head. Nice malty taste with a hint of metal at the first sip. Aftertaste is nicely roasted. Palate could be a bit more thick. Now it’s slightly too thin and watery.

Bottled in Stone Bay Inn, Kivenlahti, Espoo, Finland. Quite red, dark colour. Tight foam, but not very much of itl. Smells a bit home-made with its yeast. Cosy aroma! Unfortunately the taste has well too much yeast in it, and not much else.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught in a bar, Šumperk. This was a few years back, but I remember it being thick, caramelly, and very smooth with a relaxing finish which made me want to drink more of it. Not a superb beer, but a beer to drink and enjoy - if you like sweet dark beers!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle) dark brown colour with medium sticky frothy tanned head. Aroma of candy with toasted malt. A roasted malty taste is embedded in a light to medium body with a dry & bitter smoky finish. The carbonation could be a little bit more softer.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: dark brown with a yellowish fluffy foamy layer; sweetish caramel nose with a tinge of roasted malts; the initial sweetish malty taste becomes dry and also a little bit bitter in the finish; the quite thin body can’t be covered up by the dark colour and the malts; all in all a bit watery and disappointing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottled) Very dark, deep red color with a large, lacy, big-bubbled, beige head. Dark-bready, syrupy and roasted-malty aroma with a hint of metal. The strong initial malty roastiness slowly fades away, but there’s no finish or aftertaste to speak of. Quite carbonated, medium-bodied and slightly thin palate. A dryish, very roasty, mild and straightforward dunkel.
