ogivlado (6978) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 25, 2009
Bottled 500ml. -Courtesy of and shared with Doggythedog (thanks!)
Reddish/brown coloured, medium to big pale beige head, mild roasty nose. Roasted malt, brown sugar and some faint fruityness. Touch of caramel in the finish. Watery palate. According to label this one is "Beer of Czech Republic 2009". My vote is against.

Marko (4643) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 19, 2009
Bottle from the Albert Hypermarket in Chodov, Prague
Poured a dark red/black body with a tan head that went away slow leaving nice lacing. Weak nose, some maltiness I guess. Sweetish roasty malty taste. Very very light bitterness. Gets drier near the end. Definitely will rerate.

A really nice dunkel. Dark red-brown color with medium head. Aroma of malts, caramel,chocolate and some spicies. Taste is medium sweet that turns to spicy. Chocolate, malts, caramel and some hops in the background. Nice aftertaste, long lasting and spicy too. Nice body... nice palate.. nice beer at all...

judasbeer (431) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 5, 2009
Bottled. Dark brown color with ruby hue and creamy brownish head that lasts quite long. The aroma is pretty neutral to me. It has a distinct roasted malt character with light chocolate feel. The flavor is a pleasant surprise, much more intense than the aroma. It starts roasted malty, then follows some sweet toffee, caramelish flavors with a slightly spicy hops in the finish. It also has some weird meaty, yeasty feel as it gets warmer, but not disturb too much. The body is pleasantly smooth with moderate carbonation, almost oily - so u can feel it’s really unpasteurized. I’d gladly taste the all beers from this brewery if i’d have a chance. And surely drink it regularly if i could.

gunnar (7385) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2009
On tap in Melnik, Czech Rep. Pours brown with a moderate creamy tan head.Strong roasted malt aroma. Nice velvet mouthfeel, taste of dark malts, liquorice and pepper. Taste starts sweet turns spicy, and ends with a long nice peppery aftertaste. For me this is like a Primator Stout "light".
