4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From tap. Pours almost black with an off white head. Aroma of roasted malts, light licorice, bread and caramel, dark stone fruits. Taste is roasted malts, balanced bitterness, light licorice, notes of coffee, stone fruits, bread and caramel. Perfectly balanced and easy drinking. I’m shocked at how amazing this is, and glad that I got to share the experience with some awesome people. I will be dreaming of this beer for a while!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Jan ’15. A 0.5 l fliptop bottle, thanks Zrinka! It poured very appealing dark brow body with small brown head. Started to taste it a bit too cold. Showed caramel, coffee and herbal aroma. Flavor was bitter at first, soon balanced and overwhelmed with a pleasant sweetness, like chocolate, cocoa, sweet coffee and other roasted malt. Showed hints of wood, peat and licorice. Pleasantly complex within its medium to full body. Finish copied the flavor, rounding it almost like a schwarzbier, but full and smoother. Needs some warmth to be fully, slowly enjyed. Nice.

On tap at the brewpub. Dark mahogany coloured with a beige head. Malty aroma with dark fruits, some roasty notes, dried dark fruits, caramel and herbs. Medium to moderate sweet with nice malty flavours and a balanced bitterness. Smooth, but feels a bit light too, anyway easy to drink and quite tasty.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught @ the brewpub. Pours hazy very dark brown with stable, creamy light tan head. Dark aroma of roast, malt, caramel and nuts, with touches of hops. Bitter, roasty flavour, with sweetish malty and estery notes and touches of caramel. Hoppy finish with some sweetish touches. Well-balanced and very enjoyable. A prime example of Tmavý!
