asheft (2905) - 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.

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.

Golden/brown colour. Ultra-thick, creamy head. Roasty, almost smoked, malty aroma. Medium bodied, malty, roasty flavour with some sweetness and a subtle bitterness in the finish.

Dark, reddish brown. Persisten off-white head. Sweet aroma of malt and prunes. Some cherry-like sourness in taste. Perhaps a bit thin mouthfeel.

mzaar (2658) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2012
Mörkt öl, nästan svart, med ett fylligt capuccinoskum som så sakteliga lägger sig. Tunn arom, honung och mörk sirap. Bättre smak, där honung och röda bär går igenom i en trevlig sötma.

Sweetish flavor as well, caramel with some herbal and coffee bitterness. Fuller in body with pleasant and long cloying finish. Nice, tasty and full bodied dunkel.
