the Tops Tasting Room special Eastern European tasting. Dark with off-white head. Lots of chocolate malts. Above average mouthfeel. On the sweet side. Unexpected high alcohol from a Czech beer,I prefer the great lower abv from the Czech Republic, and pleasant drinking enough.

S: There are light to moderate aromas of alcohol and malts in the nose.
T: The taste is rather malty and has a light amount of sweetness.

Black, with a light brown medium head, quite creamy.
Very sweet smell, with toasted notes, toffee, cappuccino.
The taste is very sweet, too, and with a strong alcoholic note.
Quite heavy, and not really easy too drink.
In the aftertaste, even if not particularly balanced, some bitter roots and rhubarb notes.

While at Pivovarsky Klub (04OCT13) having my first bier, I walked around for a look at all the bottles for sale on the surrouding shelves. This one caught my eye, and I opted to give it a go for round two. The 0.5l bottle set me back 45CZK (~$2.52).

Served ina small, mini-stein, and listed currently at 10.50% ABV. It was a clear, dark chestnut, with some ruby shimmering at the edges. Head was a foamy, 1/2" tan mass, fine and tight, with ok lacing. Had a sweetish, malty aroma, which was real nice. It was quite easy on the tongue, and the body was medium.

Flavor had a healthy amount of sweetness, without being cloying, though. I tasted some dark fruit, candied raisins, even some rum-like action. It was a touch sherryish, and pleasantly warming. Alewife had one as well, and I had one more for the road. Bought to bottles to go,too, which now sit in my bier fridge here at home. Listed as a Baltic Porter, it seem s more like a strong, old english ale, but that's nbd... It's good regardless.... Prosit!

A: Dark brown with a little amber tinge, too dark to see through. No apparent carbonation, and 2 fingers of rusty beige head.

S: Coke, crème brulee. Red grapes, Dymatap cough syrup. Sweet and syrupy with a little hint of alcohol fumes.

T: Cough syrup, sweet and thick, grapes, alcohol burn in the throat. Generally alcohol hidden in the mouth, its just so sweet and syrupy though, it reminds me of a quad, even Kasteel Donker in body and sweetness. Some cocoa, chocolate notes.

M: Thick and syrupy, little carbonation, coats the tongue with a slight oil.

O: Interesting brew, in my opinion borders with a Belgian quad. Got and drank in Chiang Mai, March 6th, 2015.

I've Had this at least twice and have re-rated based on 10/13/16 tasting.
Dark and minimal lace, I also find this undistinguished in the nose.
But its sweetness comes through in the taste and, this, I actually like more than a few of the other reviews who want more bitterness from either hops or tasted malts. While the alcohol surprises me, it is warming... a job of this style of porter.
Reviewed in the "1001 list, this arguably should not be on the list because it does not distinguish itself enough and merely appeals to a narrow range of sweet people like me... and even I may not finish it for fear of getting too sweet.

OK this is the bad boy of the mixed 6 pack box. Dark and brown with a slight tan head this beer smells like booze soaked malt( not in a bad way _. The beer has a boozy sweetness that cuts down the drinkability but all in all this is reasonable for the strength and the style. Not the best for the brewer but ok in total.

Drank from my Erdinger Weizen glass.

A - Pours a dark transluscent mahoghany colour with a large foamy head that hangs a round.

S - Sweet roasted malts from the bottle. More pronounced once poured.

T - Initially very sweet, a malty infuision try to stop that but the sweetness wins out. Has an alcohol kick at the finish.Has a barrel aged taste about it that I find quite interesting.

M - Medium to full body, and low carbonation.

D - This is not the best of dark lagers, the sweetnes is just too prominant

This was my fourth Euro dark lager during my summer holiday in Slovakia. The previous three were, unfortunately, all a bit too sweet and relatively similar in taste. So lets see....This beer pours a very dark brown, almost black color with a fluffy, light-brown very creamy head that stayed for several minutes.

Smell: mainly sweet, some hints of caramel and yeast. Me and my friend noticed a kind of light dusty smell in the background which we didn't like, very similar to some vintage beers.

Taste: Mainly sweet caramel. This is uber-sweet, super-sweet, it almost burns away your teeth. In the very background of the sweetness, one can taste the alcohol and some roasted malts. No bitterness at all. The aftertaste is very similar to the initial taste. Boring

Mouthfeel: The beer is very thick, a bit like syrup, as also mentioned by other reviewers. I constantly have the urge to dilute this beer with water.... But on the other hand, the thickness is unique and it makes the beer very smooth. Medium-low carbonation.

Overall: Well....what to say. Personally I feel this beer is not recommendable, unless you like liquid sugar. Although I like sweet beers (e.g. Rochefort 10, St Bernardus abt) this one is way too sweet for my pellet and has no "taste-layers". No surprise in the aftertaste, nothing special. Will not drink this one again

This is a great beer/imperial baltic porter/russian stout/whatchamacallit. Had some doubts about Primátor though, their IPA wasn't that much of a classic - but that wasn't a surprise as we are talking about a Czech brewery after all.
This time they came up with something that is really impressive: from its black color to its intensive taste. It looks pitch black when poured though but when looking into the glass it feels somewhat porter-ish, with an off white, creamy head.
Then off to the taste. Sipping it it feels like coffee - and toffee all of a sudden, quite creamy and then its all about malts and sweetness. Sweet barley or sweet caramel malts take over, actually very sweet for a moment but not too much to make you sick. Still on the good side.
Then comes the icing on the cake, the 10% of alcohol that finishes all off with a slight booziness and cuts off the excessive sweetness, makes it feel like a turbo-malted caramel liquor.
And yes, it gives you a kind and warm feeling. Good to drink when you're down or depressed. Quite a good one this Primator Double is.
