Popper Palatín Ležiak Tmavý Originál 2.9
Pours a very dark brwon color, topped with a generous off-white head. Roasted malts in the aroma, some caramel there as well - nice. Tatse is sweet and caramely, little roastiness in the finish, but mostly sweet. Not bad, not extra nice either.

Popper Palatin 16% 3.8
Bottle via Cuso! Big nose of chocolate malt. Dark brown with thin head. Some light at edges of mug. Body is robust and undulating malt and chocolate, yet not overwhelming. Moderate roastiness shows thru. Body stands out from other Czech and Slovak Dunkels. Smooth and refreshing after a day of metal grinding and bicycle riding.

Popper Palatín Ležiak Tmavý Originál 2.2
04/05 0.5 l bottle courtesy of ogivlado, thanks for sharing! It poured clear dark brown body with small head. Sweet caramel and roasted malt. Sweet flavor, some caramel and sugar, nothing complex, nothing good either, just straightforward sweetness. Too cloying, full body with long sugary finish. Some slightly roasted malt are present here as well. Blah.

Bottled 500ml. -from Tesco Zlate Piesky, Bratislava. Dark brown (almost black coloured), small to medium sized off-white head, strong sweet nose. Very one-dimensional beer, heavy sugary and light roasty taste with sweet finish of course. Didn’t like it.

Popper Palatín Ležiak Tmavý Originál 2.7
Bottle (thanx to Cuso!): Very deep chestnut-amber coloured, mid-sized stable tanned head, sugary fruity-caramelly nose, some leafy-earthy traces underneath, together with a tinge of toasted malt; quite light bodied and also light sweet-bitter flavour; medical-herbal aromas in the sweet-bitter finish. Not great......

Popper Palatín Ležiak Tmavý Originál 2.7
(bottle) Clear, dark brown colour with a beige medium-sized foamy head. Slightly sugary and leafy roast-malty aroma with notes of caramel, liquorice and herbal accents. Quite sweet flavour with a tinge of roasty bitterness, light to medium-bodied with a mild carbonation. Sugary malt-character with roasty notes and herbal and liquorice spice; sweet and a bit slim finish. 24.XI.11

Popper Palatín Ležiak Tmavý Originál 2.4
500 ml bottle. From Cuso. Big thank you!
Reddish dark brown (almost black) colour with small light tan head. Mild sweet buttery aroma with caramel and mild cocoa notes. Flavour is unbalanced. Saccharin, mild chocolate and cocoa in flavour. Thin. Aroma was quite promising but unfortunately flavour and palate let down big time.

Konbier Svetle Vyčapne 2.4
Bottle in an Opel Astra: Small white head on top of a darker yellow to orange colored beer. Smell malts, herbs, grains, straw and light sweet. Like malted apple juice. Taste is a bit sweet from malts, with herbs. A light malty herby bitter aftertaste. Low carbo, low to slight medium body, soft mouthfeel and a watery texture.

Popper Palatín Ležiak Tmavý Originál 2.2
Bottle. Dark brown with a rocky and lasting head. Aroma is roasted malts, cocoa, coffee, caramel, some earthy hops, liquorice. A bit too sweet yet decent. Light bitterness, watery texture. Taste is much too sweet. Mainly caramel, roasted malts, cocoa, light earthiness and a pronounced artificial sweetener astringency that ruins it all. Too sweet and too artificial.

Popper Palatín Ležiak Tmavý Originál 2.6
Medium cream-coloured head over red-shot, deep brown to black beer. Sweet nose with dark malts, bit of sherry, very discreet. Sweet, diluted syrup flavour, but not disagreable; with a slight wood-like finish. Quite carbonated, slick but not really well-bodied. The idea was to get the 16%... This is very sweet, indeed like a (if not too bad) tablebeer on steroids. Many thanks to Peter V.

Popper Palatín Ležiak Tmavý Originál 2.3
Deep ruby color, small tan head, some lace. Caramelly nose with hints of cocoa powder. Very sweet, caramelly flavor. Some cocoa and chocolate flavors and also hints of saccarine. Odd overly sweet dunkel, almost like drinking some kind of low alcoholic table beer.
