Poured from a 16 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Columbia, SC. The appearance is a dark brown with medium sized tan colored head. The aroma is full of toasted malt. The taste is very malty and has a sweet finish.

Pours to a buff head that lasts and laces. Transparent ruby black color. Slight roast and decocted malt aroma with a honey-like floral hop note. Flavor is reminiscent of molasses, coffee and toffee, with a balancing clean bitterness and hop spice. Mouthfeel is light medium. Overall an outstandingly satisfying and complex dark lager.

This is truly a finely crafted lager. Poured into a 33 cl Žatec glass, pours a dark mahogany with an appetizing head. Wonderful complex caramel, chocolate, slightly sweet/roasted nose. Taste confirms the nose, and boy is there a lot to taste in this wonderfully crafted Czech beer!
