3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Muddy brown color with average-sized head. Sweet and chocolatey with clear ashy smoke notes in aroma. Very Czech in the smell, feels like a sweet dunked. Ashy and dusty smoke and chocolate in flavor. Bit stale in mouthfeel. The smoke comes late and becomes intense only then. Longlasting smoke. Light to medium bodied. A confusing smoked beer.

Very smoky finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
BOTTLE 50 CL. Almost black, ruby highlights, dark beige coffee head. Aroma has some chocolate and dark malts, as well as subtle but clear spicy/oaky smoky notes. The taste is close to the aroma, but more dry - like a stout. Subtle chocolaty notes here as well, cereals and prickly carbonation. Spicy hops and smoke blend together in the moderately bitter finish. Solid.

0,5l bottle bought a day before at Pivoteka Krizova, Brno. As "Cesky Krumlov Nakoureny Svihak Pivo Tmavy Lezak 5.2%". BB 31.03.2016. dark brown color, medium big tan head. smells smoked, light bacon, spices, light roast. nice smell. medium body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of smoke, rather bitter, spices, sausages, also rather creamy, grass. finishes with light roast and rather grassy bitter with some smoke and spices notes. not bad but the bitterness on the finish is rather disturbing. Overall decent but could be a lot better.
