(pet-bottle, 100cl) Stout-like appearance: almost black coloured hue with a brown and short foamy head. Roast-malty aroma with notes of leather and sour dough, accompanied by shades of coffee and chocolate. Moderately bitter flavour, light bodied without being watery, mildly carbonation. Dry roast-malty base with hints of mocha, leather and dark chocolate; dry and roasty, also hop bitter finish. Likeable. 19.VIII.12

Clear dark brown beer, small creamy beige head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: very sweet, crème brûlée, coffee, sweet, hopjesvla, caramel. MF: soft carbon, medium to light body. Taste: coffee, sweet hint, pretty bitter, vanilla, burnt caramel. Aftertaste: crème brûlée, little sweet, caramel, vanilla, decent.
Bottle sampled @ LIBF 2017. Thank you for sharing RB-InBev Belgian crew! Dark brown, little head. Nose is sweet chocolate, East-European basic chocolate profile. Taste is plastic, empty, same cheap East-European chocolate, sugar, very one-note & chocolate profile seems bit odd, artificial. Empty plastic chocolate body. Okay-ish for but others raved.

At LIBF ’17, shared by Hamirubi, cheers! Described as a coffee dark lager, interesting idea. Pale yellowish beige, medium sized head lacing in ’dots’, over a hazy caramel-hued chestnut brown beer. Aroma has a lot of ’real’ coffee powder to it, hints of carame, dry tea, hazelnut, minerals, straw. Neutral lager-like onset sweetened by caramelly maltiness but no esters, softish carbo, somewhat thin body but that is no surprise in a lager below 5% ABV, feels a tad watery; nice hazelnutty and butterscotch-like, typical tmavý malt profile though, pleasant, with this coffee grounds aspect returning in the end, not providing roasted bitterness but instead colouring the finish with an espresso quality; something sourish lingers after that alongside a herbal, tea-ish, only very softly bittering noble hop touch. Much more coffee-ish in its aroma than any other Dunkel or tmavý I had before, setting it apart a bit and since I like the aroma of coffee (more so than the actual taste, actually), I can appreciate this as a special, bit individualistic example within the Bavarian-Czech dark lager tradition.

Bottle sample @ LIBF’17, thanks to the RB-InBev Belgian crew for the share.
Cuivrée, col beige.
Arôme très plaisant, axé sur le café tout en gardant un profil marqué de lager surtout sur la levure et les houblons.
Palais est malté plaisant bien axé sur la café sans être surfait. Petit effet de grains et de biscuité avec un fini de pils? houblonné noble ajoute une certaine fraicheur qui redonne un côté classique de lager tchèque. mike_77 (6710) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2017
Really dark brown with thin head. Aroma and flavour are full on mocha. It’s like coffee, cream and brown sugar. So much flavour in a low alcohol beer is impressive. Korcz (3389) - Warsaw, POLAND - NOV 27, 2016

Deep black with little creamy beige head. Aroma is butter some coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is buttery some slight sourness. Finish is more butter and some licorice. Smooth mouthfeel and not too heavy. Too buttery for me. Ugh. SinH4 (4938) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUL 14, 2016
Tap at 20 PIP. Black color with beige head. Aroma is chocolate, some lacto. Taste is sweetish, milk chocolate, light, slightly watery, some earthy hops in the finish. Some paler malts come through when you keep it in the mouth for a bit. Lecker, just lecker, although maybe a bit too light. Ritzn says it’s too buttery, but I don’t have a problem here.
