0.5l bottle from a Tesco in Czech Republic. Dark brown body with ruby hint. Dark beige foam. Aroma is moderate, mix of caramel, bit of chocolate/cocoa and yeast. Foam has bitter, roasted taste. The beer itself is moderately sweet, with hints of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate/cocoa. Occasionally some hints of red fruits, i.e. cherry. Or maybe some nuts. Also, fruits appear in the aroma around the end. Palate is OK, medium carbonation, mouthfeel is mild and fizzy at the same time, medium body, or even light. Or at least light for a 13. Moderately bitter aftertaste of the roasted type. Excitingly complex but somehow not as harmonic as the better Czech Tmaves. Good one, but this lack of harmony prevents it becaming a favourite for me. shrubber85 (11408) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 1, 2010

Bottle 0,50L. Clear, dark amber/mahagony colour with average big, frothy, light brown head. Aroma of caramel, a little aroma of coffee and chocolate, too. Taste starts light sweet with some chocolate and caramel. Finish is medium bitter and still chocolaty. Medium to full body, oily texture and soft carbonation. Another good Czech tmavy...

Bottle 0,5l Tesco Neratovice 17 CZKStuu666 (13434) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2015
Aroma: light sweet, toasty, bread, nutty, notes of chocolate and roasted malt.
Chesnut coloured body with ruby glints, tall slow falling off-white head, nice creamy. Residue of this is sitting on the glass bottom after drinking.
Flavour: at first little sour with nuts, bread, next full of toasty, again gread, roasty sunflower seeds, notes of honey and chocolate, medium sweet, light bitter. Finish bitter, hops, malty. Aftertaste is disturbing - musk, but nothing strong to decrease full and well balanced taste. Carbonation is low.
Overall: The composition is arguable - isoextracts of hop, sugar... But even this, on flavour it is one of the best tmavy I ever tried.
Bottle at Craig’s. Pours deep reddish brown, nose is malty toffee, taste is dry toffee, light malt, alright. rouhlas (3616) - GREECE - AUG 31, 2015
