3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear deep ruby pour with minimal, slightly off-white head. Pleasant nose, roasted with a touch of caramel. Hints of licorice and chocolate.
Thin to medium body with lively carbonation. Average texture and. Roasty bittersweet mouthfeel with slight metallic acidity. Aroma is quite nice, somewhat ruined by abrupt bitter finish. That aside, it’s nicely roasty with caramel malts and licorice. Toffee. Slightly boozy. Interesting herbal spiciness. Faint cocoa. Dry finish.
Overall, nothing outstanding but quite nice and in my opinion a lot better then the new Zlatorog dark.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer has a lovely look. The color of the beer is a nice dark brown with a ruby red touch. The beer is quite clear. On top of the beer there is a nice layer of brownish foam, quite soft. The bulk of the foam collapses quickly, to leave a nice minimal drape. The smell is very nice. I smell a lovely bitter roast aroma, with hints of coffee and chocolate. There is also a nice sweetness. The smell is in quite good balance. The taste is slightly less. There is the same delicious roasty toasty flavor, but there is a metaly flavor to. This isn’t that nice. Accept for thes, the beer is lovely. Great.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours dark brown from the can. The tan colored head is creamy and rich, but soon fades. Aroma is plenty of dark chocolate and caramel. Nice. Taste is marked by a sweetness that verges on cloying. Here also is plenty of chocolate. Medium bodied. Decent enough, a touch too sweet, and not as balanced as the other mass produced Slovenien dunkel from Union.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyed: Poured from a bottle into a goblet.
Appearance: Dark, brown, almost black colour, depending on light it may vary to deep red. Medium foam.
Aroma: Gentle aroma of barley and caramel.
Palate: Medium body, gentle carbonation.
Taste: Gentle sweetness. Roasted malt. Bitter aftertaste.
Overall impression: One of my favourite beers and one of the most drunk. But as I can recall, it use to have more full body, it was thicker.
