EchoShine (33) - Athens, GREECE - AUG 8, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2012 I don’t know why not give it perfect score based on its class alone. I drink many Czech beers and this by far is the most fresh tasting, fun on complexity (smoke, little dark pepper corn, dark chocolate roastyness....... little woody with a really nice tan head that doesn’t dissipate quick at all and stays around floating on the medium fresh body. Label is really fitting for this beer! update: Still drinking this beer. Even got a box out of exp. as of July 5th. Today is August 16th. It just keeps marching on. Note to people prone to heartburn..... that I think the ingredients here are fresh not to easily sting you. Amazing finish and aftertastes. Even on the last finger on a wide lager glass the characteristics still shine full on.. give it a shake. if anybody wants any, contact me.

hetyu (115) - HUNGARY - JUL 26, 2012
Bottle - Rally nice dunkel in colour, thin, quickly disappearing head. Taste comes with coffee bitterness, some sweetness and the roasted malt is like a wood. There is a note of banana as well. Raally nice one!

heavy (2270) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 26, 2012
28/03 0.5 l bottle brought from Czech Rep. 5.2%. It poured reddish brown body with medium sized head. Sweet malty aroma, some sweet sugar, caramel and hay in the background. Sweetish flavor as well, caramel with some herbal and coffee bitterness. Fuller in body with pleasant and long cloying finish. Nice, tasty and full bodied dunkel.

brugmanneke (283) - GERMANY - JUN 23, 2012
(on tap) Dark brown, slightly hazy, head is brownis and stable. Aroma of roasted malts, metallic, malt beer. Nothing exciting or especially appealing. bittersweet taste. No aftertaste. Boring.

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 28, 2012
Český pivní festival, Praha. Egészen sötét, vörösesbarna színe van, amit egy közepes méretű, bézsszínű hab fed be elég kitartóan. Illata kissé kávés, karamellás, aszalt gyümölcsös és élesztős. Ízében érezni egy kis füstös, fás beütést és egy kevés medvecukros zamatot is. Közepesen testes és nem túl szénsavas. Utóíze keserédes, gyümölcsös és kissé égett. Kellemes és kiegyensúlyozott cseh barna, könnyen csúszik.

inbirraveritas (1357) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 7, 2012
Tükrösen sötétbarna szín közepes méretű bézs habbal. Élesztős illatában karamell. Aromája aszalt gyümölcsösen fanyar, barna cukorral, kétszersülttel és füves komlóval. Befejezése keserédes és száraz, finom pörkölt malátával és fűszerekkel. Jól kiegyensúlyozott cseh barna a kevésbé édes fajtából.

vipinvelp (2886) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - APR 1, 2012
Son in law brought this home. Nice dark beer, good colored foam head. Strong taste, not too sweet, nice bitter. Wonder of it need more cooling? Beer to remember and drink again.

mzaar (2077) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2012
Mörkt öl, nästan svart, med ett fylligt capuccinoskum som sĺ sakteliga lägger sig. Tunn arom, honung och mörk sirap. Bättre smak, där honung och röda bär gĺr igenom i en trevlig sötma.

Ruprecht_007 (693) - Cesky Tesin, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 8, 2012
Barva: černá, neprůhledná. Pěna nažloutlá hustá držící. Vůně: karamelově sladová. Chuť: výrazně sladová se stopou karamelu a lehce nahořklá. Perla mezi černými pivy!
