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.

On tap at Trinity Irish Pub in Vladivostok, Russia. Pours black with a thick, creamy head that stays long. Nose is malty. Taste is the same. Rather sweet, but pleasant. Okay brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
