3rd Oct 2014, on-tap at Ferdinanda, Prague. Pours a deep, dark brown with an tan coloured head. Aroma is semi-sweet roasted malt, caramel and breadlike. The taste is also semi-sweet but there is some liquorice in the flavour also. Not as rich as it looks body wise but OK and not watery. This was the third on-tap beer I had in their place and I was beginning to get bored: luckily ’Sedm Kuli Tmave’ was next! Werckmeister (3184) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JAN 2, 2015

Best before 29/03/05, consumed on 01/04/05... damn! Bottle poured a deep, ruby red body with a small tan head. Sweet, bready malt aroma that was a little juicy. Flavor went from sweet to sour, then finished sweet again. Not many discernable flavors.

Draught at the fest called Cseh Csillagok, Millenáris, Budapest. Dark brown body with a small tan head. Toasty caramel and some dried fruits in the nose. Roasted malt and some toasted candy sugar and caramel in the medium bodied beer. Some grassy hop in the finish. heavy (2817) - Split, CROATIA - NOV 8, 2009
29/10 0.5 l bottle courtesy of Doggythedog, thanks for sharing! It poured darker reddish brown body with medium sized beige head. Quite ordinary caramel and coffee aroma. Flavor was balanced between sweetish caramel and coffee roasted malts. Pretty simple and none of those two is too prominent. Thinner to medium body, still it had quite short, slightly caramel finish. Some herbal hops might be emerging here, as well. Didn’t particularly like it as of ts simplicity and lack of stronger character, but it’s a decent brew for sure.
