3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, 330ml with pull ring cap. From Pivovarsky Klub, Prague. Black, red hue, explosive brown head. Sweet and fruity dunkel, a little powdery in texture, but nicely set up with a blackcurrant, loganberry type flavour and a slightly cloying sweetness. Some carbonation, but not intrusive, a little chocolate, dark malt. Reasonably straight forward, uncomplicated beer.
