3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(on tap) Dark brown, almost black, hazy. Big brown head, dissipating quickly. Roasted malty aroma. Light to medium bitter, not sweet - I like that. Light to medium body. Hops take some time to spread their aroma. Good, well-crafted.

The head is robust, the colour black. The taste is malty roasty a bit coffee, hoppy, a bit bitter. In the aftertaste it becomes bitter. Nice different kinds of malt interresting! 13/11/10/11/-/11

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewpub, Summer 2011. The pour gives a hazy, dark, chestnut-mahogany body with glints of red around he edges. A thick, spongy head of beige froth lasts a good long while, leaving sticky splotches of lacing behind. The nose is of simple, bready, bronzed sugars with notes of caramel, toasted bread, and cocoa. There’s a touch of a nickely sort of mineral character amidst the dark, malty bread sugars. Flavors follow suit, bready and toasty, clearly featuring the dark malt with all of its toasted caramel edges, roast, and mildly bittersweet cocoa. A bit of floral hop character shows on the back end. The palate sports a moderate, easy going body that finishes with some crisp acidity and lively, cleaning carbonation. Again, like the other Strahov beers I tried, it’s not bad at all, but there’s just not a ton going on, and it falls well short of other regional brews.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at my East Croydon beer tasting. It pours dark brown, with ruby highlights and an off-white head. The nose is nut, caramel, sweaty sock and smoke. The taste is chocolate, tangy, cardboard, nut, light caramel and toast, with a light vinegar finish. A decent dunkel, but it is perhaps a bit on the thin side.
