3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewpub. Subtle aroma of caramel and roast. Balanced taste, light to medium body, rather dry, with a caramelly flavour and an aftertaste of coffee and hops. Although I’m not blown away, you can tell the quality of the brewery if you come over and out of the four they have on tap the worst one is this good.

Keg at the monastery brewpub. Pours a dark Brown with a Red hue and a thick Cream coloured head. Aroma of roasted malt. Flavour also tastes roasty but with coffee and caramel. A touch of liquorice leading to a light bitter finish. Full bodied and delicious.

(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.

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.
