2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml plastic bottle. From Cuso. Díky moc!
Dark brown almost black colour with a small light tan head.
Malt, syrupy sweetness, dark fruits, Coke, fruit cake and grain in the aroma.
The flavour is grain, malt, fruit cake, sweetness, Coke and some mild bitterness. Not bad but not necessarily my kind of Dunkel.

Plastic bottle from Cuso: Mlaty caramelic nose. Deep dark brown color an a creamy brown head. Flavor malty, fresh, caramelic, roasty and bitter hopped with slightly sweetness in the end. Really good but the bitter hops are bit too dominant in the end.

Classical dunkel we’ve got from Cuso. Malty with a slight roasted back and some nuts. Some cream also hiding in the back. Nice one and definitely above average.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Cuso - thank you a lot! Beer pours out in a deep dark brown colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of christmas bread, malt and woods. Taste of malt, brown sugar, caramel, brown bread, leaves and cake. Very sweet, almost sticky sweet, with some dry and bitter hints and a light bittersweet chocolate-like finish. Interesting beer, nice, but due to its high sweetness not that easy to drink.
