mikkopen (1058) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 5, 2008
500 ml bottle (Zlatopramen Half n’ Half). Clear amber brown, small off-white head. Sweet, malty aroma with some raisins. Mildly roasted malty flavour with some caramel sweetness, and a little hoppy bitterness in the finish. Not bad, but not particularly good, either.

yngwie (16517) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 25, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2009 Bottle, as Half ’n’ Half. A dark golden beer with a small beige head. Some butterscotch on the nose, but mostly sweetness, caramel and pale malts. The flavor is on the malty side too, with some butterscotch and a little bitterness. Medium body. A decent beer, but not worth spending time finding. Rating: 5-3-6-3-12-2.9. (090213)

Bottle. It pours a clear, amber body with a small beige head. Malty aroma with caramel, some roasted aromas and a fruityness. Pears and yellow apples I think. Roasted, caramel flavor, lower on fruityness, and with a little bitterness. Medium body. Quite fruity finish, but with a balancing maltyness. Some notes of cellar too. A decent beer but that’s it.

FatPhil (14002) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 3, 2008
500ml bottle.
Deep red, small head. Grainy aroma. Rich full bodied taste, grainy and with some burnt malts. Hops are a little astringent, but not offensively so. Pretty good quaffer, full flavoured from the dark half, and refreshing from the light half.

Tranquillity (1875) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2008
Bottled, thanks fatphil! Aroma of grains and raisins. Deep amber-red colour, thick beige head. Taste weak in alcohol, it’s more like rye bread milkshake. Not bad, quite refreshing actually.

tomer (3030) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAY 13, 2008
0.5L bottle, medium head, medium brown colour with red taints. Strange hoppy aroma, extremely skunky and almost repulsive,with just a touch of malt. Taste of caramel and some bitter chocolate, feels a bit diluted. Goes well with food but nothing more than that.

larsga (7307) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 1, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2008 Medium beige head with unevenly sized bubbles. Deep dark translucent red body. Earthy fruity aroma of wood, toffee, and wild berries. Dryish metallic grainy licorice toffee and wood taste with peppery hop notes. Some sweetness. Soft, velvety mouthfeel. Very harmonic and balanced. A bit watery. Somewhat reminiscent of soft drinks. Not at all bad. (0.5l bottle from Systembolaget, Charlottenberg as Zlatopramen Half’n’half. Rerated as same.)

TBone (16191) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 15, 2008
Bottled as "Zlatopramen Half ’n’ Half" (BB 07/2008)
Bottle from Systembolaget. Beautiful clear chesnut color, small beige head. Bready and ryeish aroma. Flavor is quite close to Zlatopramen Dark. Decent body with rounded mouthfeel. Ryeish malty, a bit harsh and woody, toned caramel. Woody bitterish aftertaste. Standard Czech dark beer.

Bottled (thx Karl). Dark brown coloured with a medium sized off-white head. Quite roasted and malty with notes of caramel, chocolate and hops. Nice.
