ogreface (1344) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 28, 2012
Český pivní festival, Praha. Egészen sötét, vörösesbarna színe van, amit egy közepes méretű, bézsszínű hab fed be elég kitartóan. Illata kissé kávés, karamellás, aszalt gyümölcsös és élesztős. Ízében érezni egy kis füstös, fás beütést és egy kevés medvecukros zamatot is. Közepesen testes és nem túl szénsavas. Utóíze keserédes, gyümölcsös és kissé égett. Kellemes és kiegyensúlyozott cseh barna, könnyen csúszik.

mmahut (934) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 9, 2013
Dark brown body with massive head. The brewery is known Tetrahop isoextract to maintain a good head. Aroma is clean and malty, ittle bit sour. I can feel the oxidation in the taste, checking the bottle the beer is 10 days before end of the warranty, so should be still drinkable. Candy sweetness with sour and hoppy after-taste. Smooth body. I’m looking forward to the ontap version.
