Pours a deep brownish color with a healthy tan head that fades slowly to good lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, roasted malt bit of chocolate and spice. Taste of dark fruit, some chocolate, roasted malt and bit of coffee in the background. Very mild bitterness and a slightly sweet finish.. Moderate body, a bit on the light side. Smooth and creamy but missing something to make it distinctive. Decent beer but comes up a bit short for a Czech beer. MichaelAwesome (6519) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle shared with McTapps. A nice surprise ! But a watery one... Nice aroma of malt, sugar and fruit combined with a slightly sweetish taste. Maybe due to its low alc this one seems to be a bit watery. Put it up to 5,5 % and the same taste, then you’ll get a 4,2 in the score ! McTapps (6889) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Clear dark ruby-brown in colour with low head. Thin body, nose of pumpernickel. Taste of brown sugar, caramel, light nuts, brown bread and syrup. Too sweet and light for me. Unde (1088) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 11, 2013
Aroma has dark bread and malts. Nice dark head, and color is dark brown. Smooth and fulfilling flavor, dark malts bring some sweetness. It’s like bread that is transformed into beer, brilliant! Oakrock (130) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 4, 2013
Wonderfull foam and beautifull colour. Good taste but no character. Reminds a bit of "kvas" because too much sweet. More hops and roasted syrup and it would be on level 4. Very easy to sip and composition feels good in mouth. One is enough.

Pours dark brown with a good off white head. Nose is very sweet raisins and caramel, with some light chocolate and coffee. The taste is sweet mostly with a hint of bitter in the middle. The mouthfeel is crisp and clean, body is light and the finish is long. JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - DEC 18, 2012
Pours light brown with amber highlights, thin foam head that quickly disappear.
Smells malt and cane sugar. Taste is malty, bready. Palate is watery, finish is very short. Brandman (2950) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 16, 2012
Dark brown body, light brown head. Aroma has bready malt, nuts and butter. Pretty much whole flavour is the same. Dull and very plain beer. Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2012
Tiefes dunkelbraun, fast schwarz mit reichlich bräunlichen Schaum. Ein röstmalziger Ton im Aroma. Im Antrunk dann malzig mit schönen Geschmacksnoten nach Kaffee und Bitterschokolade. Für diesen niedrigen Alk.Gehalt erstaunlich gut und keineswegs dünn geraten. Im Abgang kommt dann eine dezente Hopfennote zum vorschein. Hervorragender Begleiter zu den leckeren Topinky wie Bierkäse und deftigen Ertrunkenen Würstchen.

On tap. Nice dunkel, a bit watered down, but i suppose this due to the style (i´m waiting for a more bodied dunkel...). Nice roasty and caramel aromas. Pours dar, with amber reflections, with a cremy head and average carbonation.Aftertaste is sweet.
