3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the bottle: Pours a dark opaque brownish red with a medium off white bubbly head that thins quickly.
Aroma is roasty malt and nutty, coffeeish bitterness. Black cherry.
Flavour is quite nutty, malty. Smooth but tasty. A little thin through the finish.
I just had a ’Demon’ before this and I’d be interested in trying some of the other Lobkowicz brews. Quality beers.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap in Vrchlabi:
Fine cherries and roasted chocolate invite the dessert lover. Licorice increases the sweetness’s complexity, and the stouty foam sure is appealing.
Candy sweetness and chocolate-covered berries make this richer than most tmavé offerings. Smooth body, unidimensionally sweet, but very good for what it is attempting to do.
Low-fat black forest cake.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2007 Bottled(500ml). -deep amber coloured, small pale beige head, toasted malty nose. Malty caramel aroma with notes of toffee and nuts. Also mild coffee notes in the background.
Bottled(330ml). -I’ve tried this beer before three years, but just now realised that I’ve rated wrong beer, Barrandov instead of Baron, now is too late that I remember anything about this beer so I’m going to leave my old rating until I taste it again, demon is much better beer than this. 6-3-6-3-13

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Smells nice, of caramel, nuts, and malts, but tastes clash strangely: syrupy sweet at first but fizzy and alcoholic at the end.

Compact and resistant foam. Dark red color, shining and medium intense. Enough determined scent, agreeable and bitter. Sweet caramel aroma. Not too much solid and drinkable with a not excessive alcoholic tenor. Bitterish end with notes of tobacco and raisin.
