Marduk (2579) - Tallinn, - DEC 2, 2012
500ml bottle (BB 16.08.12). Dark brown color. Nice tan head, disappears fast. Mild roast, caramel in aroma. Somewhat metallic, roast, slightly nutty, fresh (mint?) flavor.

Mainuh_man (62) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2014
0.5L bottle. Pours clear dark brown with a rocky white head. Nice malt aromas of chocolate and cinammon. These continue into the flavor profile: Mild sweet with chocolate and cinammon, finishing with a nice roasted malt flavor that lingers. Little hop flavor in this one. Medium body with mild carbonation. Almost like a porter. Overall, a really decent beer with nice malt characteristics.

CanCrusher (600) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle 0,50L. Clear, dark amber/mahagony colour with average big, frothy, light brown head. Aroma of caramel, a little aroma of coffee and chocolate, too. Taste starts light sweet with some chocolate and caramel. Finish is medium bitter and still chocolaty. Medium to full body, oily texture and soft carbonation. Another good Czech tmavy...

flying_pig (903) - SCOTLAND - MAY 12, 2014
500ml Bottle from Prague Airport (60Czk):

Sweet with some sugar and chocolate coming through alongside some floral notes, background fruits and light hops. Some earthy notes, raisin and a little treacle coming through too. Mahogany brown with a large, 2 fingers tall, foamy beige head with good retention & some lacing on the sides too. Sweet although not as sweet as the aroma, slightly more subdued with more of an earthy flavour. Some raisin, hints of chocolate, caramel & dark malts with an almost nutty taste. Smooth with about low to medium carbonation & an almost creamy body, the beer also has hints of spice through it.

A mellow and light taste that was easy enough to drink but didn’t really do enough to grab my attention or have me want to desperately take another drink. It was nice & the taste was well balanced but it just seemed like one big blur & I doubt it will be a memorable one.

Jamedra (447) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 6, 2014
Láhev 500 ml. Aroma je výrazně znát po praženém sladu s kvasnicovým nádechem. Pěna je světle hnědá, jemná, vysoká a držící. Barva samotného piva je temně rubínová. Chuť má velmi příjemný nádech hořké čokolády s jemnými banánovými podtóny, celková chuť je prostoupena sladem, finiš je příjemně kávově hořký a držící. V ústech pivo působí plně a má střední říz. Celkově se jedná o velmi příjemný tmavý ležák s plnou, pestrou chutí, která rozhodně nezklame.

ogniskowicz (46) - - MAY 5, 2014
Piwo wyglada pięknie, obfita, gęsta piana, kolor czarny z wiśniowymi refleksami. Zapach - przeciętny, słody, kawa zbożowa, czegoś jednak zdecydowanie tutaj brakuje. W smaku na początku czuć kawę, przełamaną kwaskowymi akcentami. Finisz delikatnie czekoladowy. Przeciętne piwo.
