Thanks to quack-duck for that one. Bottle looks good but a bit complex. Beer in the glass also black, small head. Starts mild-malty, not as strong as exspected, modest dry. Well balanced, but could show more character. Finish soft-malty, modest bitter. Not bad.

Smakprov pĺ SBWF12. Mör nästan svart skum med smutsvitt skum. En klassisk mör tjeckisk lager. Rostade kaffetoner bĺde i smak och doft.

mattphilips (802) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 4, 2012
Bohémia Sörszalon, Budapest. Nagyon sötétbarna színe van, csak kevés piszkosfehér habot fejleszt, ami egyhamar nyomtalanul eltűnik. Illata pörkölt malátás, erősen tejszínes, karamellás, kávés, szinte olyan, mint egy tiramisu. A tejességet ízében is érezni, mellette finoman pörkölt malátás, kávés, csokoládés és vékonyan komlós. Testes, de könnyen fogyasztható, nagyon összetett Dunkel, rég nem ittam hasonlóan jót!

Pours a medium brown with a foamy tan head. Smells of chocolate, bread, nuts. Taste is roasted malt, bread, hint of chocolate and coffee. Sweet with a very mild bitterness.

Dogbrick (7659) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Sample at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. Clear dark brownish color with a medium frothy beige head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Aroma of toasted malt and a bit of caramel. Light-bodied with a toasted malt character and notes of mild hops and ripe fruit. The finish is short and malty. Pretty average overall.

Bottle picked up at pivoteka in Pilsen, obviously mainly meant for export as I’d never found it before in czecholand and it had the American warnings on the label about not operating heavy machinery when you’re pregnant or whatever. Anyways, a dark browny shade of purple with a thin but lasting head; aroma of wet bank notes; some black olive brine, texture firm as with zatec water; medium bitterness with some Saaz showing, of course. Very drinkable dunkel

Was expecting more from this but, not much body, slight smokiness, not much aroma, nothing special.
