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 (5607) - 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".

50 cl bottle at my garage-tasting 8th. May. Bought in Prague by Atle. Clear brown reddish color, fine beige head. Aroma is sweet fruity, butterscotch. Flavor is sweet, caramel, fruit and has some hops. Maybe too sweet.

Tap at the Cesky Pivni Festival. Deep ruby colored one with a creamy tan head. Sweet caramel aroma with buttery and roasted malt. Sweet malt and caramel dominates the flavor of the medium bodied beer. Light aftertaste.

Diar (121) - SWEDEN - JUN 2, 2009
(tap in Praha) A clear, dark amber beer with thick roasted foam. the aroms is lightly roasted. The taste is a bit sweet and hoppy and its nicely roasted, sadly it also tastes of alcohol. The palate is low and the aftertaste is a light mix of alcohol and roasted tones.

yngwie (13946) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2009
Bottle. It pours a clear, copper-colored body under a small, creamy, beige head. Looking quite good actually. Decent aroma with caramel tending towards butterscotch, sweetness, fruits and noble hops. Sweet, full-bodied mouthfeel with caramel, and some hops giving a decent bitterness. Some bitterness in the finish too, but it wouldn’t hurt from a little more of it. A decent beer, but I could easily do without the butterscotch. (090508)
