Pours a deep copper with small amount of tan head that quickly disappears. A more roasty aroma than most dark lagers. Coffee, caramel, dark chocolate, and something that reminds me of the yoohoo chocolate drink in a bottle. Nothing like elementary school nostalgia while rating beers on the internet. Very grainy taste. Lots of sweet toasted malts that give way to an earthy hop finish. Drinks very light and smooth with a slight hop bitterness left on the tip of the tongue. A unique dark lager.

Nice brown body with a hint of orange when held to the light. Lasting taupe head. Malt and toasted grain aromas. Hints of caramel and herbal hops. Quite sweet in the front and most of the way through. Hints of roasted malt and ash all wrapped up in caramel and toasted malt. Nice soft feel. A really good dunkel. 6/10

Tap @ Csehsörnapok 2016. Nagy csalódás ez nekem, hisz gejl édes ízével a kedvemet veszi el...

dnicolaescu (1929) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - APR 6, 2016
BOTTLE 33 CL. Clear dark brown, beige head. Both the aroma and the flavour have dark toasted bread, sweet bread, dusty cereals and spicy bitter finish. The mouthfeel is smooth enough - just a bit of the pungency that lagers have when they get too strong. Nothing fancy, just a decent tmavy.

Taste of caramel, raisins, dark fruits, some toffee, slight nuts, a little brown sugar, a hint of chocolate and subtle herbal hops. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A short, fruity, herbal hop bitterness in the finish. A decent dunkel, sweet caramel and lots of fruit. Late hoppiness but a little short.
