2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap U Tri Ru?i brewpub, Prague. Dark golden to copper with creamy steady off white to tan head. Looks sophisticated in it’s own glass. Aroma of dried fruit, syrup and malts. Light and creamy, caramel, toffee, dried fruits, sweet, no alcohol presence. Body is surprisingly thin, it’s somehow watery. Nothing special.

On tap at the restaurant. Your guess is as good as mine as to which is which on this list, the menu says one "special" then you get to Ratebeer and find out there’s an encyclopedia of these things waiting. This one tastes all right, smells of nothing, looks okay and has caramel notes with little complexity. Maybe the others are better, it’s all a gamble, but here we are trying to figure it all out.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ the brewpub. Pours hazy darkish copper brown with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of roast, with notes of malt and caramel and some mild notes of hops. Sweetish flavour of malt and caramel, with some bitterish roasty and hoppy notes and hints of yeast. Bitter-sweet aftertaste. Soft carbonation. Well, far from a truly monastic beer, at least in the sense of Trappist, but drinkable and, within the style, rather enjoyable.
