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.
