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.

Andy_ (1000) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 26, 2015
500 ml bottle @ Prague. Originally rated 2015-04-22
Dark copper colored, almost black beer with big persistent beige head leaving lacing. Aroma has chocolate, toffee, vanilla, dark fruits, dark bread and mämmi. Flavor has chocolate, raisins, fresh fruitiness, light roastiness and little coffee. Palate is thin with strong carbonation. Finish has medium bitterness. Aftertaste has licorice, roasted malts, bread, toffee and dark fruits. Rich aroma and flavor but helplessly too thin for this kind of stuff. Still good.
