flying_pig (931) - 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.

Barva: černá, neprůhledná. Pěna nažloutlá hustá držící. Vůně: karamelově sladová. Chuť: výrazně sladová se stopou karamelu a lehce nahořklá. Perla mezi černými pivy!

angelkostvo (577) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 13, 2012
Color is dark with red nuance as you would expect from a dunkel and it has a small head that stays. Aroma of caramel, smoke, plums, some wet wood may be. Taste is balanced, sweet with dry finish. On of the best Czech dunkels I had.
