3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared with McTapps. Easy to drink one even if it´s deep and bit milky in its look and the taste. Malt all the way which is not rocket science but a solid one.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown-ruby colour with big and steady ehad and medium to smooth body. Nose of sour malt. Taste of dark nuts, dark bread, vanilla, torf, rich malt and caramel. Little bit too metallic finish, but otherwise really nice and easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Penzion Mona, Harrachov. Pours slightly hazy dark brown with stable light tan head. Clear aroma of malt and caramel with a note of dried fruit. Complex, sour and sweet flavour of malt and fruit, offset by a bitter hoppy aftertaste. Decent.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottiglia 500ml Nel bicchiere si presenta ambrata scura tendente ebano, forma una schiuma cremosa e sottile ma persistente color beige. Al palato rilascia sentori di malto tostato e caramello dolciastro che vanno svanendo in un finale amarognolo con lievi note pepate che gli donano un buon equilibrio. Il corpo medio e la bassa carbonatazione favoriscono la beva in serata invernali come questa, dando la sensazione di "scaldare" la bocca.

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.
