MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2005
The Lure:
A dark burgundy sheet sends mineral and vegetables warnings. Something might be off. A little sweetness pierces through, but this is not appealing.

The Festivities:
A frothy feel offers light roastiness, shy caramel, licorice and fruity shadows. Nothing’s off here thankfully. Barely any aftertaste, this bottle is mainly watery and bland, and moreover light years away from their ingeniously different and tasty Rytir Bitter.

Buying bread that looked good and discovering that it was just swollen with air.

KyotoLefty (9404) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 23, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2010 Draught at Svijansky Rytir in Prague. Sweet, creamy, chocolate and caramel aroma. Looks like a root beer float. Creamy flavor, chocolate and caramel, slightly burnt and earthy, with some minerals. Slightly watery at the end. Ok, rather average dunkel--missing something. Soft, silky body, very delicate. A nice drinker.

Quack-Duck (9164) - Down South, GERMANY - JUN 16, 2007
on tap at Baracnycka Rychta in Prague. Dark brown colour, impressive head. Flavours of roasted malt, caramel and hints of coffee and biter chocolate. Rounded with a hoppy backgrounds, which makes the beer neither bitter nor sweet, but very well balanced.

gunnar (8011) - 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".

gyllenbock (7999) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2016
At Internationales Berliner Bierfestival 2016. Dark brown with a tan head. A bit roasted with malt, caramel, dark bread and some hints of fruit. The finish was on the dry side and medium bitter.

(Draught at Svijansky Rytir, Prague, 27 July 2011) Very dark brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of dark bread, caramel and dried fruit. Malty, roasted taste with caramel, dark bread, rasins and a certain sweetness in a finish with a gentle bitterness. Medium body. Quite nice.

Erzengel (7925) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2014
Schöne dunkelbraune Farbe mit beigem Schaum. Das Bier verstöhmt einen angenehm malzig-röstmalzig-süßlichen Geruch. Im Antrunk ist da Bier herb-malzig mit angenehm milder Note. Zum Hauptteil entwickelt es einen vollmundig-malzigen Geschmack mit süßlich-röstmalzigen Einschlägen und einer ganz schwachen Bitterkeit. Die malzige Süße üebrwiegt aber über dem röstmalzig-herben. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine röstmalzig-trockene, zugelich aber malzig-süßliche Note.
→ Leckeres röstmalziges Dunkles. Für meinen Geschmack aber ein Bisschen zu süß! 10/12/10/11
