bottle. Dark colour, large head, malty nose. Flavours of malt, roasted malt, slightly caramelly. Not sweet at all, quite hoppy, but not bitter - well-balanced brew.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark brown color with a ring of offwhite lace. Aroma and flavor of roasted malt and fruits with some sweetness. The palate is light and creamy and is prickled by lively carbonation. Kind of boring, a bit of this a bit of that but not enough to keep a beer geek interested.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Roasted malt tickles the nostrils, and chats with some fruitiness. All is tame and without consequence. I would like some sweetness to link them.
Roasted berries and feeble caramel are drained of their vitality by the frail body. Lots of carbonation impedes on what little malt complexity there is. An ordinary tmavé without any outstanding qualities.
Yawning helps you pop your ears.

Bottled. Mahogany colour. Vague coffee aroma. Sweet and soft, lightly roasty. A very discrete beer with low bitterness and no flaws.

this is strange, duff decides he´s coming to visit, i figure we should go on a daytrip to žatec and then he comes out the next day and rates one of their beers. anyway, dark brown, caramel and toffee apple aroma. vanilla and coffee icecream with a surprising amount of late bitterness. luscious and nice, good to know there are still good tmaves out there

Bottle. Surpised that this wasn’t in the database. Nice schwarz. Very dry and bitter, but soft at the same time. Softly buttery, with some light raisin, finishing bitter and floral, with subtle roasted/chocolatey malt, this was really, really nice, and extrememly drinkable.
