3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 My Bottom Line:
Toasted bread crumbs move into berry jam and light caramel in this lively and roasty bitter Czech-style Tmavé.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy tower of foam dissipates into the see-through dark brown with reddish hints.
-Wooden smoke is tasted as well, mostly in the finishing dryness.
-The nose portends some dryness.
-The end result is very drinkable, and as pleasant the U Fleku imho.
On tap at the brewpub.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub.
Reddish/brown coloured, medium sized tan head, light roasted coffee nose. Burnt malt, mild coffee and milk chocolate taste. Rather vinous finish, but all in all good dunkel.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the brewpub. Mild roasted aroma. Dark brown colour, seems cloudy. Stable plasticky light brown head. Good roasted flavour, mostly like fresh coffee. Lumpy mouthfeel from the head. Hint of mild vinous malt in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Deep, dark brown with reddish hints and a big, tan head. Big aromas of burnt malts, prunes and treacle. Flavour started sweet, before some doughiness, roasted notes and dusty hops, leading to a dry finish. Great stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at the brewpub. dark burned brown (red glow) - offwhite head. Offwhite head. Burned, dark burned bread, light sweetness, licorice, berries, chocolate. Very nice and drinkable. More like a schwartzbier than a dunkel.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fad på brewpubben. Mørkbrun med rødlig skær og beige skum. Dufter og smager af mørkt brød, brændt, ristet malt og chokolade. God rund eftersmag som bliver hængende. Fin øl minder nok mest om en schwartzbeer.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
In my opinion, even better than the beer it aims to emulate, u Fleku's Flek. A classic Czech Cerne with a smooth roast aroma, full roast and sweetish toffee/caramel body and lots of dry hoppiness in the roasty finish. Full of character and flavour, so good I had another! (on draught in brewpub)
