4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ the brewpub. Easily my favourite of the Tmave I’ve had up to now. That one wore a dense, huge beige head that could hold a coin atop its coke-coloured, veiled body. Chocolatey, toasty and gently nutty nose that is surprisingly aromatic for a dark lager. The engaging leafy hops help. The mouthfeel is ridiculously round, yet it feels light, simply enveloping your mouth and never disturbing you with anything resembling agressive carbonation. Top add to my satisfastion, it is dry despite its ample body and just keeps putting on its chocolatey show after you,ve swallowed. Impressive to pack so much in a single pint. Sure the place is expensive for Prague, but that level of quality is rare even among Czech land.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at the brewpub. The beer is a nearly opaque dark brown color with a medium beige head that dissipates slowly. Small patches of lacing. Roasted malt aroma with notes of coffee and hops. Medium body with a roasty character and flavors of malt, coffee and dark chocolate. Light hops are present at times too. The finish is roasty with a lingering malty aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
