3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.33 l bottle from FIRMA BIER, best before end 9/2015. Clear, very dark brownish red to opaque black with a thin, soapy, slowly diminishing, beige head. Fruity-malty aroma of plums, dark cherries, roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate and hints of charcoal. Sweetish, smoky-fruity taste of charcoal, plums, dark cherries, dark chocolate and and coffee, followed by a medium long, rather bitter and roasty finish. Thin to medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, flat. Quite complex for 5% abv but not as smoky as expected or hoped. Overall very solid.

330ml bottle in box delivery. Very dark in appearance, almost opaque in colour although clear not cloudy. Rich head of chalky brown, dissipates slowly with some lacing. Aroma very malty with some charcoal and resin notes. Flavour begins with cigar smoke, although again heavy on malt with biscuity and pine edge and a long smoky aftertaste.

(Keg at Gastropub Praha, 20150718) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had chocolate, creamy coffee and burnt malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were burnt malts, sweetness, smoke, ash and bitterness. Aftertaste was burnt and bitter. Either the smokedness hit the blind spot of my senses or it was very mild. Despite that a nice brew.
