mmahut (1478) - 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.

ogreface (1390) - 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.

inbirraveritas (1344) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 7, 2012
Tükrösen sötétbarna szín közepes méretű bézs habbal. Élesztős illatában karamell. Aromája aszalt gyümölcsösen fanyar, barna cukorral, kétszersülttel és füves komlóval. Befejezése keserédes és száraz, finom pörkölt malátával és fűszerekkel. Jól kiegyensúlyozott cseh barna a kevésbé édes fajtából.

flying_pig (1150) - SCOTLAND - MAY 12, 2014
500ml Bottle from Prague Airport (60Czk):

Sweet with some sugar and chocolate coming through alongside some floral notes, background fruits and light hops. Some earthy notes, raisin and a little treacle coming through too. Mahogany brown with a large, 2 fingers tall, foamy beige head with good retention & some lacing on the sides too. Sweet although not as sweet as the aroma, slightly more subdued with more of an earthy flavour. Some raisin, hints of chocolate, caramel & dark malts with an almost nutty taste. Smooth with about low to medium carbonation & an almost creamy body, the beer also has hints of spice through it.

A mellow and light taste that was easy enough to drink but didn’t really do enough to grab my attention or have me want to desperately take another drink. It was nice & the taste was well balanced but it just seemed like one big blur & I doubt it will be a memorable one.
