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.

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

djoeye (3800) - Tromsř, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2016
Beige top, near black body, red-mahogany edges though. Aroma; dark raisins, prunes, malted candies, kvass, dark sweet bread, berryish grass, vanilla, WOW! Taste; black chocolate, coffee, dry sweet liquorice, dryish prunes, an almond, some grass n peels - leading to a slightly dry finish, dark malts and notes of hops. Nice in the mouth. Well brewed. Bottle seems to be better than can, I don’t know why. [33cl.btl 4.5% BB.23.09.2016]
