esox (1225) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2008
Canned. Dark, reddish brown liquid and blond beige head. Malty aroma is slightly roasted and has rye bread. Some hops in the finish. Flavor is sweet syrupy turning to a bit sour and bitter in the finish. Smooth but somewhat watery mouthfeel. Light bodied and too heavily carbonated. Easy to drink, but very simple and boring. Anyway, this was the beer that made me taste many more. arsol (1221) - NORWAY - SEP 9, 2013

Fine, clear mahogany-brown colour.
High, airy, foam that dissapears too quickly. The aroma is marked by obvious chocolate, caramel, some liquorice and malts. The aroma leaves no traces of the hops, but is very appealing. The flavor is quite complex with a lot of chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. Some caramel appears too, and even notes of liquorice are hiding in there. The liquorice are getting more obvious towards the finish, when the beer gets more sourish and dry too. The finish is quite bitter, and fits the beer. This might sound exciting, but somehow the taste in itself still manage to give a bit of a boring impression. It might be because of the dryishness. This beer is only a little creamy, and it would suit it being more. It could be sweeter too, together with less dry. All in all this is a quite nice dunkel, though. All in all: 3.4.
15.05.2010: Re-rating as my brother brought by a can. Appearance is a little better this time - head lasts better, but still not long enough. Aroma is not as appealing as earlier, less complex. Else, this beer seems exactly the same as before.
Draught. Pours pitch black with a fading beige head. Aroma of milk chocolate, oats, liquorice. Taste is of chocolate, liquorice, metallic finish. Soft carbonation, smooth watery mouthfeel. evannell (1190) - Kraków, POLAND - SEP 24, 2014
For me it’s a classic among czech corporation-made beers. I like to buy a bottle from time to time. Everybody knows it, so needs no description. Dermi (1189) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 20, 2011
Canned, 50 cl. Pours dark but clear and red beer. Forms a nice beige head. Aroma: Malt, small feeling of smoke and soil. Taste: Lightly sweet and bitter. Little metallic. Palate: Light bodied beer with sticky and thin texture. Average carbonation. Dry finish. Bygers (1185) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 23, 2012
50ml bottle. The aroma gives you both chocolate, caramel, citrus and coffee. Taste is much of the same, without the citrus. Not a world class beer.

Moderate hoppy and chocolate aroma. Huge, frothy, off-white head. Excellent lacing. Mostly lasting longevity. Clear, amber body. Moderate sweet flavor. Medium palate.
