MartinT (9729) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 19, 2017
My Bottom Line:
Prune and toffee are balanced out by roastiness, as cherry angles precede this Schwarzbiers charred bread crust bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam tops the darkened mahogany.
-The flavour profile is balanced throughout.
-Mouthfeel is quite malty, as seems to be the case for all their lagers (these arent anemic lagers, in other words).
-Drinkability is relatively high.

Robe bien sombre, parfaitement filtre et aux reflets pourpres. Gnreuse tte qui malheureusement ne survint quun instant sans saccrocher au verre. Armes de gomme balloune, de friandise sucre, de levures froides. Une teinte de chocolat peut-tre mais je suis surtout du ct de la friandise. Le produit est cependant plus intressant en bouche alors que je gote une noisette ainsi quun chocolat cette fois sr de lui. Assez croquante, japprcie le travail des malts grills et schs apportant un tonus ncessaire cet ensemble somme toute sucr. Buvabilit agrable par cette journe de grande pluie.

Bouteille de 500ml. 01.05.2017. Rien de surprenant que la robe soit noire. Un nez lgrement grill avec des notes de chocolat. Une superbe bouche ronde avec des saveurs de chocolat lger, de houblons nobles. Peu damertume et surtout rien voir avec un stout. Franchement cest trs bon.

Bottle shared at King Hall. Opaque black pour with thin off-white foam. Aroma is toasty, roasted grain, light coffee, very mild chocolate notes. Taste is roasty, lightly caramelized, malt forward. Palate is light bodied, good carbonation, easy drinking. Good!

A light smoke influence on the aroma, the taste seems a little confused, between a variety of styles

Enjoyed: Poured from a bottle into a lager glass. Appearance: Brown colour, reddish on light. Small, almost no foam. Aroma: Roasted malt with gentle sweet aroma of caramel; somehow refreshing. Palate: Light body, watery, gentle carbonation. Taste: Gentle combination of sweetness and bitterness. Roasted malt and caramel. Overall impression: Simple, light and enjoyable.

0,5l bottle at Triton bar, Mali Loinj. Pours cloudy dark brown with decent tan frothy head. Aroma is quite sweet, malty with some caramel and a hint of roasty notes. Taste is mainly sweet malty, some caramel and chocolate. Mild balanced bitterness and some herbal notes in aftertaste. Overall maybe a bit too watery, but pleasant and drinkable.

Woooow, lovely beer from a lovely place. The whole ambiance here at Medvedgrad makes this beer even better. The color of the beer is a lovely dark rube red. Its amazing. The beer has quite some cloudiness. In top of the beer here is a nice soft layer of brown soft foam. The smell of the beer is just how I like it. It has that sweet hoppy thing. It reminds of strawberry jam, passion fruits and some more tropical fruits. The smell has a nice sweetness and a nice bitterness to it. The taste is amazing to. There is a nice bitterness and a lovely sweetness. Its in perfect balance. The nice roasty touch and the slight strawberry thing are very good friends. I like it s lot. The finish has a lovely chocolate bitter taste. Amazing.
