(Bottle, 0.33 l, at HBF2016) The beer poured clear and nearly black. Its head was medium sized and lightly brown. Aroma had burnt malts, molasses and grass. Palate was full bodied and warming with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, burnt malts, ash and bitterness. Afteraste was sweet and bitter. A sweet and boozy stout.

Ascelja (956) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle 0,33l. Dark brown body, beige head. Malty aroma with dark fruits, plums, apples and dark chocolate, alcohol. Sweet taste with toasted bitterness, coffee, dark chocolate and intensive disruptive alcohol content above everything else. Some dark fruits again. Full body, syrupy mouthfeel.
Alcohol is very unpleasant, it’s killer of another tastes.

Rotin (967) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle 0,33l. Dark brown colored beer. Aroma of dark fruits, apples, nuts and dark chocolate, unpleasant tones of alcohol. Very sweet and intensive flavor, bitter, taste of coffee and dark chocolate, but, unfortunately, very harsh presence of alcohol spoils my good impression, again. It’s a shame, it could be much better.
