Almost totally black, a few ruby/dark brown notes. One finger foamy head, lasts a while and so does the thick sticky lace afterwards.
Rich smell of dark roasted malts, nuttiness, some salted chocolate, faint toffee, light espresso, nice Czech hops.
Roasted malts dominate the taste, burnt crust, burnt sugar and dusty cocoa powder. Nut peel later on, gets a bit chocolatey, then roasted again, with some nice coffee notes. Nice clean Saaz hops in the finish, along with a bit of ash and some faint burnt wood, not too much tho. Lagery "lemon zest" is present, lifting it all up to the palate.
Light to medium body, medium carbonation.
A benchmark for dark Czech lagers, no doubt about that.
