3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap U Tri Ruzi. Opaque brown black pour, intense lacing. Fruity (cherry) aroma, vanilla notes, strong roasted malt presence, pretty aromatic. Taste is fruity up front, cherry/vanilla mix followed by a long lingering roasty finish. Palate is silky and thin enough to avoid stickiness. One of the better tmavys I’ve had on the trip.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Delicate but lengthy roasted and caramel malts swing into fruity and dry before letting roastiness take control of the finish.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam covers the darkness.
-The mouthfeel is full, yet the finish is relatively dry, increasing drinkability.
-Caramel allusions make a comeback in the aftertaste.
-Like the rest of U Tri Ruzi’s classic stylings, this is perfectly malty from aroma to finish.
On tap at the brewpub.

Fra fat på bryggeripuben 23 Okt 12 - på tur med jobben til Praha. Svart. OK, litt farget skum. God karamellaroma. Smaken også karamell. I søtligste laget - men bra.

Keg at the Brewpub. Ruby Broon with an off-white head. Lots of depth to this one. The chocolate/cocoa is very distinct and the roasted malt gives it impressive depth and body. An extremely well put together dunkel. I’d like to try it side-by-side with the U Fleku number.
