Bottle. Dark cola colour with a medium thin creamy head. Sweet aroma of caramel and toffee. Taste is roasted malt. Watery texture with lively carbonation. One of my long time favourites of this style.

0.5 bottle. Pleasant aroma of dark roasted malts, a lot of coffee and some nuts as well. Pours a black liquid with scarlet tone, clear topped with a big creamy head. Sweet taste, rather soft although not to a fault. Medium body and what came as a surprise smooth, watery texture which impairs the typical warm sensation of a dark beer. Carbonation between average and soft inclining towards the latter. Definitely short finish. All in all it is a nice beer but nothing outstanding for its own kind, pretty shame it is spoiled with an excess of water.

Can. Pours an auburnish, dark cola with a large, off-white, quickly dissipating head. Aroma is grassy, soapy, metallic, malty. Taste begins as bready malts, quite sweet, some caramel. Finish is malty and herbal as is the aftertaste. Palate is light, quite carbonated, a bit watery. The taste is pretty good, just too sweet. The mixture of malt and herbal hops is great. Just gotta wonder why the need for the sugar? Would be a lot better without it.

Love it, great taste of Prague... Very delicate, with a taste of caramel, should be served in heavy glass stain (as in Prague).

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2015 500ml bottle. Very nice beige foam with small bubbling (almost creamy). The colour is dark brown. Body is medium, and taste is roasted coffee with minimal earth (by Saazer hop?) and very sweet malt behinde these. I liked it, my wife very liked.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Poured a dark brown, almost black with a fluffy tan head. For me, this was a bit like Guinness-lite - similar flavours but less intense; similar mouthfeel but not quite as creamy. It is however very smooth and suprisingly light. A very decent beer.
