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)

Moebbels (398) - FINLAND - AUG 8, 2013
Dark brown body with a light beige head that dissipates quickly. Nose is rich and full with notes of coffee, rye, syrup and chokolate. Taste starts off sweet, followed by a mild metallic bitterness. Carbonation is medium with lots of small bubbles, palate is fairly full and syrupy. This is pretty nice.

zenkis (625) - Ogre, LATVIA - MAY 22, 2013
Pours deep dark with reddish tones, beige-tan top, frothy foam, spoty acceptable lacing. Aroma- sweet malt profile with huge presence of roasted malt, plus weird spicy-sweet something (maybe toasted pilsner malt), also some dark rye bread roast. In taste- dominant malt sweet backbone with toasted, roasted and bitter notes with minimal sour. Long medium dry finish, medium body, watery and a bit creamy texture.No hopping felt. Weird but in flavor I sensed something like omelety sweetness. O.A. - brew seem like Bohemian pilsener but instead of hops bitter it has roasted one
