3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(On tap at the brewpub) This beer was perhaps the best beer during my 10 days holiday in Prague. Strong coffee-malty aroma. Black-brown coloured with a creamy brown, thin and lasting head. Very smooth taste of roasted malts (coffee), sweetness and bitterness. Little sparkling. Good and well-balanced brew.

Back to standard with this dark beer - an aroma of pure caramel! I was expecting a sickly sweet flavour but was pleasantly surprised by the dryish caramel and fudge taste although the sweetness was still there. It finishes not sweet or dry but somewhere in the middle with the caramel making a return. It is improving on every visit, getting less toffeeish and more roasted - just like it's mentor, Flek. (Draught at Klasterni, Praha)
