4.03/5 rDev +13.2%
The beer comes in a dark color with a bit of reddish in the light with a brown head.
The aroma has a wonderful deep toasty malt with some roast qualities along with those Czech spicy and grassy hops. A lager yeast, a light coffee.
The flavor has a clean nutty toasted malt with some light chocolate and coffee. A toasty bread of whole wheat, even a light fruit quality of apple skin and light raisin. A clean lager quality with some spicy Czech grassy hops in the finish. A very clean beer with a medium minus mouthfeel, but still with substantive malt quality.
The beer is wonderfully flavorful with pilsner qualities on the finish, but still contains full malt qualities.

3.55/5 rDev -0.3%
Black color with ruby highlights producing a one finger thick head with good retention and leaving laces.
Faint, but nice predominant aroma of creamy chocolate and grains.
Flavor of spices, creamy chocolate, roasted malt, cola, licorice, minerals and finishing with earthy and herbal hop bitterness. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light to medium body with good carbonation.
Smooth Black Lager and very easy to drink, not cloying at all. Decent not awesome. I bet this 4.4% abv version is better than the lower abv one.

everything about this beer is lovely. on tap, always from what i gather, at sobo 151 on broadway, a really great place to watch hockey games. dark brown in color but letting light through in a dark cherry red glow. over an inch of thick course tan foam stays on top and doesnt go anywhere. nose is subdued, sweeter dark malt and european lager yeast, clean and light, im surprised it comes in under 4% abv, but i guess it makes sense, ive been drinking liters all night and feel pretty straight. a great accompaniment to traditional czech dishes, but also awesome as a standalone, or a stand in for a meal for that matter. full bodied but still clean drinking and not real filling. some dried fruit notes in among the dark malt trees, a nice autumnal cornucopia, malt driven but not unhopped. a delightful beer i look forward to revisiting again soon. one of the better imports going right now, semi macro at that.

Look: Pours with a fizzy, thick off-white (brown hue) average size head, relatively fast retention, mostly diminishing. Leaves good amount of lacing. Medium carbonation. Clear, light body, looks like coca-cola.
Smell: Light roast, light sweetness, some chocolate, cappuccino, some subtle earthy notes, a bit stuffy.
Taste: Very easy and light sweet caramel, roasty, nutty middle goes into light roastiness with mild hop bitterness in the after taste. A bit missing, but not that bad.
Mouthfeel: Light, silky, dry, but crisp and pleasant medium carbonation - lifts up the whole beer. Bit watery still.
Overall: Light. But offers enough to stay interesting and very drinkable. Good easy roasted beer.
