2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep reddy brown, bready head. Smell is a bit metallic. Quite watery palate, but a decent enough burnt maltiness to it. Very restrained hops. A little sweet, but some samples we’ve had have been very sweet - quality control’s not their strong point. Quite drinkable, but not very exciting.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from a small market in Prague. Pours a ruddy amber with a transient tan head. Aroma is a dark malt with a hint of chocolate. Med body or nearly. Flavor matches aroma and now I’m sue there’s chocolate. Arguably a bit of nuttiness. Drinkable.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at The Kolkovna, Prague, Pasteurised, 500ml. Dark brown with malty cream head. The ubiquitous Kozel dark can be found at any of the hundreds of Pilsner Urquell bars around Prague, I have to say that Sandra loves this beer, but I find it much too sweet for me, there is licorice in there and a certain fruitiness, but really the sweetness is overwhelming.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2005 Dark brown. Medium sized, short-lived head. Malty nose with chocolate and roast caramel. Feels and tastes weak, which of course isn’t a lie, but it does so in a very pleasant way.
I can imagine why Czech dissidents would sit up all night discussing politics with this kind of beer.
