Appearance excellent appearance. Fine thick haze on light garnet with touches of brown. Large, long lasting stiff beige top. Is this natural or nitro in play? 4+

CanCrusher (600) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle 0,50L. Clear, dark amber/mahagony colour with average big, frothy, light brown head. Aroma of caramel, a little aroma of coffee and chocolate, too. Taste starts light sweet with some chocolate and caramel. Finish is medium bitter and still chocolaty. Medium to full body, oily texture and soft carbonation. Another good Czech tmavy...

EithCubes (4705) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 15, 2006
Bottle. Sweet dark malty aroma with caramel, mild roast and hints of astringent veggie. Dark red-brown with a light brown, frothy and clingy head. Body is thin and a tad sticky. Roast with caramel and a little grit, medium astringent bitterness throughout leading to a dry and toffeeish aftertaste. Some nice hoppy funk in the middle- and endgame. Good balance between sweetness an dbitterness. Flavor is complex and comes in waves. Took me a while to get into this (its charms are subtle), but I do like it quite a bit.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 17, 2011
Bottle sample courtesy of The Losh. Very dark oily pour lets in some light creating an ambery hue. Has a moderate beige cap. The nose is very roasty, and hints at coffee and vanilla, with some grassy hops. Sweet, but fairly balanced by floral bittering hops. Medium light body,Long bitter finish with musty like black coffee in the end. A good effort from this brewer.
