A secret weapon of Drinks Union, a beer of delicious taste, clear smell and typical colour. The drinker will be surprised by its pleasant taste, less sweet than with other dark beers. The dark Breznak won the most prestigious beer contest - Golden Cup PIVEX ´98.

Bottle, 3.8% as Březňák Schwarzbier. Almost black colour. Small light brown head. Nicely roasted flavour, quite flavourful. No bitterness to speak of. Slightly creamy, slightly sweet. Thin mouthfeel, not surprisingly.

Bierkrug (2133) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, GERMANY - JAN 10, 2009
500 ML Bottle in Germany. Looks great when poured. Dark black color. Strange a low alcohol Schwarzbier. Tasted like a malt drink and not really beer but it was good if your looking for low alcohol. Not something I will have again.

Az 1753-ban alapított Pivovar Velké Březno 3,8% alkoholtartalmú barna söre kiváló példa arra, hogy megcáfoljuk azokat, akik úgy gondolják, hogy a barna sörök általában erősebbek, testesebbek, mint világos társaik. Csehországban ez – a nekünk oly kedves kivételektől eltekintve – pont fordítva van. És ezek a laza barnák egyáltalán nem is „édeskések”, mint azt a hiedelem tartja. Általában határozott keserűséget mutatnak – kivéve talán ez a Březnák, mert ez inkább olyan semmilyen. Van benne ugyan némi keserűség, de azért ennél többet várnék el.

darkseduction (583) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - DEC 7, 2008
Bottle 50cl. Pours a dark brown, clear filtered brew with a firm off-white head. Easy to drink but in the finish quite dry and watery. I am not amused.
