2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark brown body with massive head. The brewery is known Tetrahop isoextract to maintain a good head. Aroma is clean and malty, ittle bit sour. I can feel the oxidation in the taste, checking the bottle the beer is 10 days before end of the warranty, so should be still drinkable. Candy sweetness with sour and hoppy after-taste. Smooth body. I’m looking forward to the ontap version.

500 ml bottle. BB 26/02/13. (Globus) Ústí nad Labem, Czech Republic.
Clear dark amber colour with small to average sized fluffy light tan head.
Caramel and toffee sweetness, malt and mild diacetyl in aroma.
Flavour is sweetish with dry hoppy twist. There’s liquorice, toffee, dry hops, malt and dark fruits in flavour. Rather balanced and interesting.

500ml bottle - shared by Marduk - thanks. Was 3 months past BB.
Nice soft roast, some chocolatiness to it. Fruity apple/orange retronasals. Very simple soft roast in the taste too.Finish has very dark burnt malt bitterness, with slightly metallic hints. Full and smooth palate, just gently sweet to keep it smooth, but not sugary at all. Carbonation is pleasant. Super easily drinkable dunkel, just what I like in a dark beer - would session this. Not showing signs of age at all, if anything the dryness might be aided by the age, and a positive thing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Color is dark with red nuance as you would expect from a dunkel and it has a small head that stays. Aroma of caramel, smoke, plums, some wet wood may be. Taste is balanced, sweet with dry finish. On of the best Czech dunkels I had.
