Draft (in Bratislava). Smalls faintly of toasted malt. A little bitter from hops, but not much. It is rather sweet, almost syrupy. Nor my favourite Slovakian dark!

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2007 Very fine dunkel. Creamy, very dark head over almost pitch black body. Slight coffee flavour, maybe a bit too thin indeed but very refreshing and relaxing.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Some chlorine in the nose. Not much of a adrk malt character, they must have just added colouring. Sweetish, with some syruppy type flavours, finishes a little dryer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Another product from the street vendors in Kyiv who seemed to specialise in Slovakian beer. A definite coffee and chocolate malt flavour which followed a low hop aroma. the pour is poor. I am sorry that the waitress gave you poor head Lars.
