gunnar (5267) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2009
On tap in Melnik, Czech Rep. Pours brown with a moderate creamy tan head.Strong roasted malt aroma. Nice velvet mouthfeel, taste of dark malts, liquorice and pepper. Taste starts sweet turns spicy, and ends with a long nice peppery aftertaste. For me this is like a Primator Stout "light".

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.

on tap at Baracnycka Rychta in Prague. Dark brown colour, impressive head. Flavours of roasted malt, caramel and hints of coffee and biter chocolate. Rounded with a hoppy backgrounds, which makes the beer neither bitter nor sweet, but very well balanced.

Cerbier (195) - - AUG 7, 2014
0,5l Flasche. Dunkles Bier mit beiger Schaumkrone. Aroma nach Röstmalzen und Kaffee. Schmeckt auch so, dazu komen noch Nuancen von Schokolade und Zimt. Sehr leckeres Böhmisches Bier!

Ascelja (15) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle 0,5l Tesco Neratovice 17 CZK
Aroma: light sweet, toasty, bread, nutty, notes of chocolate and roasted malt.
Chesnut coloured body with ruby glints, tall slow falling off-white head, nice creamy. Residue of this is sitting on the glass bottom after drinking.
Flavour: at first little sour with nuts, bread, next full of toasty, again gread, roasty sunflower seeds, notes of honey and chocolate, medium sweet, light bitter. Finish bitter, hops, malty. Aftertaste is disturbing - musk, but nothing strong to decrease full and well balanced taste. Carbonation is low.
Overall: The composition is arguable - isoextracts of hop, sugar... But even this, on flavour it is one of the best tmavy I ever tried.
