Color dark ruby, definitely not black. If you're sorry to hear it, cheer up: your reward is here, in aroma and taste.

Smell nutty-roasty, with grainy notes. Medium level of carbonation. Majestic head that slowly disappears leaving elaborate lace.

Start malty a bit sweetish, body full of roasted malts, dried fruit, chocolate and a very modest amount of hops. Aftertaste chocolatey, crying for more.

A real delight. Very good Czech beer.

500 ml bottle from Riga

Pours dark amber with dense and effervescent head that fades to dense patches of foam at the top, patchy lacing. Aroma is bready, hints of sweetish nuts and roasted, later in the glass reminds of coffee.

Taste is clean, light sweet and roasted malt, dark chocolate and quite prominent hop bitterness in the long lasting aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light with more than average carbonation.

Overall, I enjoyed this beer quite a lot.

Presentation- Green 500 ml bottle with freshness date on the back label.

A- Nice, thick, coarse tan head, leaves a little bit of lace. The color was dark deep brown. When held up to the light you see it is dark ruby red with a few streams of tiny bubbles.

S- Malty sweetness, Roasted nuts, fruity.

T- Sweet, rich, malty, dark chocolate, some hops, and a slightly bitter finish.

M- Smooth, light-medium bodied, little carbonation.

D- The bottom line is that this is a pleasant and easy beer to enjoy

It´s a good beer with a light chocolate taste and a very satisfied drinkability. Is the exact taste you expected from a Czech beer.

If you which a beer to drink in a cold night this is a great choice.

In the right temperature about 8 to 10º C his taste appears well.
