Sigmund (5831) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 4, 2005
500 ml bottle, bought at Pivni Galerie, Prague. Typical dunkel reddish brown colour, large lasting off-white/beige head. Moderate malty aroma, notes of caramel and leather, maybe some dark fruits too. Low carbonation, a bit thin mouthfeel, malty sweet with notes of molasses, minimal bitterness. Nice enough to drink, but I’d really like some more hops to balance the sweetness. Must be another beer for the target group "convalescents and nursing mothers".

Draught at "Irish Pub Dublin" close to tram stop Lipanska, in Prague.
Dark brown color, big white/beige lasting creamy head. Fruity and a bit burnt scent. Very refreshing. Low to medium bitterness. Sweet taste, mixed with a bit of burnt flavor. A faint bit of acid in the aftertaste. Very nice taste and easy to drink.

Son in law brought this home. Nice dark beer, good colored foam head. Strong taste, not too sweet, nice bitter. Wonder of it need more cooling? Beer to remember and drink again.

inbirraveritas (1368) - 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.

50cl Bottle from Tesco Plzen. Deep dark brown to black colour, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, burnt caramel, nuts, dusty cocoa. Flavour is light sweet, cocoa, roasted malts, light coffee, nuts, bitter burnt caramel finish. Light-bodied. Good dunkel imo.

FatPhil (11497) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 1, 2012
500ml bottle - shared by Marduk - thanks. Was 3 months past BB.
Nice soft roast, some chocolatiness to it. Fruity apple/orange retronasals. Very simple soft roast in the taste too.Finish has very dark burnt malt bitterness, with slightly metallic hints. Full and smooth palate, just gently sweet to keep it smooth, but not sugary at all. Carbonation is pleasant. Super easily drinkable dunkel, just what I like in a dark beer - would session this. Not showing signs of age at all, if anything the dryness might be aided by the age, and a positive thing.
