Draught at the brewpub on May 20, 2015.pivnizub (10912) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 26, 2012
As "Tmavy Special / Dark Special", figures it should be rated under this one.
Clear very dark red to black color, lasting light brown head. Roasted, hoppy taste. Roasted aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness. Mainly malty scent.
Tapped: Very dark with some ruby spots, medium-sized lacy off-white head, presumable a bit hazy, dry caramelly-toasty nose , some fruity traces as well; dryish bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied; lingering roasty and malt-bitter finish with a good dash of coffee-powder. Nový pivovar, dobra kvalita… KyotoLefty (10810) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 15, 2015

Tap at the brewpub. Poured a hazy dark brown with a broken thin light tan head and lots of broken lace. The aroma is light roasted malt. The flavour is medium bitter with a watery malt hop bitter palate and a short bitter finish. Medium to light bodied with average carbonation. MartinT (10155) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2013
My Bottom Line:
gunnar (9924) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2013
Delicate but lengthy roasted and caramel malts swing into fruity and dry before letting roastiness take control of the finish.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam covers the darkness.
-The mouthfeel is full, yet the finish is relatively dry, increasing drinkability.
-Caramel allusions make a comeback in the aftertaste.
-Like the rest of U Tri Ruzi’s classic stylings, this is perfectly malty from aroma to finish.
