Bottle from the Albert Hypermarket in Chodov, Prague
Poured a dark red/black body with a tan head that went away slow leaving nice lacing. Weak nose, some maltiness I guess. Sweetish roasty malty taste. Very very light bitterness. Gets drier near the end. Definitely will rerate.

Deep brown body and light tan head. Cacao, pecan nuts, wholewheat bread. Quite smooth, nice mouth feel. Light sweet and roasted. Good balance, none of the expected factory taste. Body is even a bit fatty. Well made, good brewer. (50cl bottle)

MichaelAwesome (2982) - Wanne-Eickel, 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.

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.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - NOV 3, 2005
From the bottle pours a very dark red, almost black with a light tan head that lasts. Very smooth throughout with a mild roastiness and hints of chocolate in the malt. Very creamy texture with a well balanced finish.

asheft (2443) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2006
[bottle from Galerie Pivni in Prague] Clear, reddish brown with a nice, lasting yellowy foam that leaves plenty of lacing. Refreshingly "dark" aroma for this style containing coffee and smokey bacon blended with subtle yet typical Pilsner hops. While the aroma was above average, the flavour was a bit disappointing: fairly sweet with pilsnery hopping and obvious alcohol. A little bit of watermelony caramel as well. Medium body, medium carbonation.
