A traditional Czech dark lager with rich flavour given by a special combination of four types of malt, which also endows the beer with fullness and a unique caramel flavour and aroma. A pleasant bitterness and rich stable foam complete the unique character of the beer.

Brewed by Platan and then Rakovník for Russkaya Traditsiya (http://www.superbeer.ru)

A - Pours a dark brown/black beer with a big foamy off-white head. Fair lacing S - In the nose there is roasted malts and notes of caramel and toffee T - Taste is like the nose. Roasted malts followed by notes or caramel and a somewhat very low bittersweet finish. M - In the mouth feels medium bodied with low carbonation. Silky texture O - Overall a very good sessional dark lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mahogany color. Malt, caramal, some brown sugar, a little burned character. Taste is caramel, sweetness, some "brownness" a very small roasted character. A very average beer - not bad, but nothing I would go back into actively.
