Keg at U Medvicku. Pours Browny Amber with an off-white head. Very sweet aroma. Flavour has a lot going on. Soft, overripe fruits on the turn. Toffee and wood. It’s a bit like a barley wine or an old ale. Sticky, sweet, Boozy and bitter. I’d recommend it in very small measures.

maekchu (3460) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 18, 2012
2009 vintage bottle. Thanks to KyotoLefty. Cinnamon, lots of licorice, sweetened wine, and buttery nose. Reddish-brown color, flat and slick. Tart fruit initial; mid is has a rich sweetnesss and citrus fruit; final is buttery, cheesy, and finishes somehow dry. Medium-thick body. Wow! Very sharp all around and so complex.

Svesse (7849) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 14, 2012
(Draught at U Medvidku, Prague, 27 July 2012) Reddish brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with dried fruit, wild berries, brown sugar, figs and raisins. Malty, fruity taste with notes of caramel, dark fruit, brown sugar, chocolate and sweet hints of cherries. Fairly low bitterness. Alcohol is evident, but quite well balanced. Full body, with thick syrupy mouthfeel. Quite sweet. Nice one.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2012 #1054 Da sitzt man im U Medvidku und trinkt den lieben Tag das einzig Wahre Budweiser Budvar, da überkommt einem das Gefühl nach etwas anderem...Eins der stärksten Biere der Welt musste her und so landete ich beim X-Beer...mir kam fast mein leckeres Gulasch wieder hoch, so alkoholisch und widerlich süß war die ganze Sache und dafür noch das 3-fache gegenüber nem veritablen Budweiser. Nie wieder! Test vom 5.11.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,6,3,3,10,4 - 4,80

Cloudy amber pour with a huge head and a great cascade effect when it came to the table. Aroma of apple and sugar. Alcohol is super hidden in the sweetness. Way too easy to drink. Palate is creamy.

heavy (2773) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 25, 2012
27/02 A 0.33 l bottle from the brewpub. It poured hazy brown body with medium sized head. Sourish aroma, fruity malty, especially plums, apples and oranges. Fruity flavor, sourish more than sweet, quite well balanced. Full in body with nice long, sweetish and only slightly tart finish. Alcohol is present of course but not too much. It’s a nice brew, which might easily be infected but it only benefited from it generally. Strictly as a bock it would fail of course.

Tap @ brewery in Prague. Fairly clear, dark orangish brown appearance wit ha nice sized, light brown head. Fruit syrup, rich sugary, toffee, dried fruit aroma. Ultra sugary, very cloying, mildly metallic, raspberry fruit syrup, burnt sugar, light caramel flavor. Very cloying and over the top sugar count with a bad metallic note. I remember thinking this wasn’t bad on my previous trip but it was horrible during this visit. I think it’s just a sugar/alcohol bomb.

BlackHaddock (6336) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2012
Brown 33cl flip-top bottle with a freshness date of 31st Oct 2009, drank and reviewed on 21st July 2009. Obtained from the brew-pub while on a boozy trip to Prague. Poured carefully into a Hoegaarden Grand Cru branded tulip glass. Looked like a redish stout or porter, not fully black, more a deep ruby red colour. Dense and misty, the tan head that arrived at first soon left leaving just a thin collar. Smells like a sour cherry beer (Rodenbach wise), a sweetness came as the beer warmed and after I’d tasted it. The sweetness didn’t wait for any warmth in the taste, it hits you straight away, very un-Rodenbach like in taste, although I’ve heard they have sweetened it now. I’ve had a few rearly strong lager based beers over the years and this one isn’t as sweet as some, but never-the-less it isn’t a beer for those that don’t have a sweet tooth. The aftertaste is boarding on sickly, the rich sweetness stays a little to long in the mouth. I can see why other reviewers have complained about the sweet nature of the beer and the lack of an alcohol feel. The sweetness certainly hides the alcohol very well, but I wouldn’t want to drive a car, even after only one!

Hazy toffee color. Big light tan head, plenty of lacing and rings as it sticks around for a while. Big malty aroma with some raisin and molasses aromas. Taste is sweet molasses and malt. Nice beer. The alcohol is very well hidden behind the big sugary sweetness.
