Sigmund (5337) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 4, 2005
500 ml bottle, bought at Pivni Galerie, Prague. Typical dunkel reddish brown colour, large lasting off-white/beige head. Moderate malty aroma, notes of caramel and leather, maybe some dark fruits too. Low carbonation, a bit thin mouthfeel, malty sweet with notes of molasses, minimal bitterness. Nice enough to drink, but I’d really like some more hops to balance the sweetness. Must be another beer for the target group "convalescents and nursing mothers".

kappldav123 (5246) - GERMANY - DEC 27, 2007
The bottle looks good, but the coloures should be combinded better. There’s not much foam in the glass. The beer starts very vapid, becomes a little bit drier in the middle, but the finish in nearly washy. An average beer.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2011
Bottle @ Pulp, Athens. Brown-red with thick head. Licorice throughout aromas and flavors is yummy and welcome. Fits into a good CZ dark beer pocket.

EithCubes (5101) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 15, 2006
Bottle. Sweet dark malty aroma with caramel, mild roast and hints of astringent veggie. Dark red-brown with a light brown, frothy and clingy head. Body is thin and a tad sticky. Roast with caramel and a little grit, medium astringent bitterness throughout leading to a dry and toffeeish aftertaste. Some nice hoppy funk in the middle- and endgame. Good balance between sweetness an dbitterness. Flavor is complex and comes in waves. Took me a while to get into this (its charms are subtle), but I do like it quite a bit.

Borresteijn (5001) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2012
50cl Bottle from Tesco Plzen. Deep dark brown to black colour, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, burnt caramel, nuts, dusty cocoa. Flavour is light sweet, cocoa, roasted malts, light coffee, nuts, bitter burnt caramel finish. Light-bodied. Good dunkel imo.

McTapps (4726) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2013
Dark brown-ruby colour with big and steady ehad and medium to smooth body. Nose of sour malt. Taste of dark nuts, dark bread, vanilla, torf, rich malt and caramel. Little bit too metallic finish, but otherwise really nice and easy to drink.

MichaelAwesome (4724) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 28, 2013
Bottle shared with McTapps. Easy to drink one even if it´s deep and bit milky in its look and the taste. Malt all the way which is not rocket science but a solid one.
