4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Strahov: Pitch black, mid-sized brownish head, sticking to the glass, deep roast-malty and fruity (dark, dried berries) and distinctive aromatic hoppy nose, quite dry, full bitter-sweet flavour, medium to full bodied, distinctive fruity traces (or liquorice) in the dryish roastmalty-bitter finish. Superbly balanced Bock, not too sweet with very well hidden alcohol. Gorgeous stuff from a very good pivovar...........

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
draught at Klasterni pivnice. Deep brown, almost black colour, creamy beige head. Full-bodied, lovely malt flavours with caramel, roasted malts, chocolate, hints of coffee. Well balanced by delicious fresh hops, resiny, grassy, slightly floral. Well balanced and with a smooth palate. As expected, another convincing beer from this very reliable brewery!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
on tap at the brewery with mowbeer. dark shade of brown with a perfect cream head; aroma has a good balance of prune and date with some grassy hop character; quite a good depth of lactic and dark malt flavours hinting at milk stout, with brandy butter and roasted licorice coming through but with plenty of slightly metallic bitterness keeping things in check. very warm and complex for a dunkelbock. somehow this brewery never fails. i noticed recently while having a look at my stats that this is in my top-rated couple of breweries. makes plenty of sense as they seem able to pull off any style they try

Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Another sourish one from this brewery, and again the aroma just isn’t very interesting. Ok.

At the brew pub.
Chewy grain, full body. A little sweet and sour. A very decent bock, but it could ahve been even more powerful.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Strahov. Actually said Autumn Dark on the blackboard heh. Poured a brown/black body with a tan small-medium head that went away relatively slowly. The nose is basically malt and coffee, nothing too complex but still very nice. A sweet yoghurty and caramelly taste, a bit dry, with notes of coffee. Some very light lemony hop near te end. A bit warming. A nice enough dunkel.
