2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: APR 29, 2011 Bottle. Clear ruby red to black with a beige unstabile head. Decent lacings. Aroma is burnt malty with a bit sour stale dirty water note and some faint coffee and bitter chocolate notes. Taste is burnt bitter and a bit sourish and dirty watery with some chocolate that saves it from disaster. A bit weak body and stale sourish mouthfeel with small sharp bubbles. I like it a bit more this try, but still pretty boring and harsh.

A 1983 veteran!!! Still quite well carbonated. Mild smoky tones with a crisp malt and a subtle chocolate tone. Surprisingly good and has survived remarkably well.

Pravděpodobně nejlepší tmavé pivo co jsem kdy pil. Hodně krémová chuť, hustá pěna, prostě pozitivní zážitek.
