3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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".

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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".

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
