UPDATED: MAR 16, 2005 Herlig mørk øl med flot aroma og flot vedvarende skum. Har et strejf af karamel, men er trodsalt lidt vandig DanielBrown (4528) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2005
Nice bottle from a supermarket in Prague: the foil is gold, but burnished black at the tip. Nice Dunkel brown, with a bubbly head and a slightly rooty aroma. Medium beer. Nice, but thin choc flavour, finishing with a soured tip, even suggesting extra alcohol. This is very sweet, but pretty smooth, with some taste. asheft (3108) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2005

Clear, ruby-brown with good lacing and a creamy cover. Plenty of diacetyl butterscotch in the aroma with some caramel and a hint of noble hops. The flavour is of sweet caramel plus diacetyl with strawberry/kiwi notes. Quite sweet with no bitterness. Maybe a little raisiny and brown ale-like. Medium body and very low carbonation with a clean finish. saxo (19286) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2005
Bottle. Dark with a fast disappearing head. Light malty, slighty fruity aroma. Short finish. Not much for hops. Refreshing Nicko (223) - Ashfield, AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2006
500ml bottle. Large initial head, dark brown appearance. Toasty malt aroma. Smooth, nutty, chocolate tastes. Very sweet, also too much so. Slightly unpleasant after taste.

Bottle: Reddish-amber coloured, creamy tanned head, slowly diminishing to a small stable foamy layer; sweet-malty, toasted-malty nose; sweet-caramelly flavour, light bodied, soft MF; toasted, caramelly finish with a small chocolatey bitterness in the end. Hearty, easily drinkable Dunkel, a bit on the sweet side.... YK23 (465) - Haifa, ISRAEL - JUN 3, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2009 From tap: a little roasty, pretty sweet, nice maltyness, mainly caramel, some wet wood, some rye(?), dry finish, pretty stale and weak tasting, not impressive. HarryFlashman (469) - Chatham, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2007
I liked this - it was quite sweet, but not as much so as one may expect. Had a little smokey kind of taste, which made it interesting. jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 27, 2007
Not much of a selection on a Czech train ride. Ah well, at least it’s beer. And I’m also really glad its "foam" is dark, too.
