2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is malty, sweetish, a litlle fruity (some berries I guess) and weak. Clear, black coloured with a lasting, off-white head. Taste is malty-sweet, some bitterness and a little fruity (berries). Bit watery and a little sticky.

(on bottle)I diden´t have any high hope for tjis one amd I wasen´t disapinted. All i all a medium brew, with some coffee in the aroma, watery mouth and a tad of roast in the finish. Tht roasted taste did actually make one want another sip, just not this beer again.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark red color, no head to mention. Strong caramel and malty aroma. Medium bodied beer with nicely toasted and coffee tasting malt, also some chocolate may be noticed. Surprisingly much carbonated, but it matches nicely to this dunkel. Carbonation makes this beer very refreshing, which is - I think - pretty rare for dunkels. Leaves nice bitter feeling to mouth.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A deep amber brew with an aroma of sweet caramel. Some liquorice in the flavour, but mainly sweet caramel which drowns out most other flavours. A bit heavy handed on the caramel but not too bad a beer - nowhere near as bad as the standard pale ones anyway. (Draught at U Stary Posty, Praha)

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - bought from Hotel Berlin, Smichov, Prague. Darkish black, like a Porter or a fizzy Mild. No head or lacing, cola aroma, with some sugar. Porter like flavour - sweet roasted oats over malty lagerish base. Thin, sweet, but balanced and tasty. Richness in the medium aftertaste - medicinal, choc, nuts. This is a very good Czech product, which is possibly Staropramen's best product. I felt it was fitting to try this and Staropramen's Granat in my hotel, as it was plum next door to the aforementioned brewer's large, fully functional base!

Slightly complex aroma structure. Mild fruity beer, but without to much of an aftertaste
