Dark lager has caramel sweetish taste; here you can find slight scent of burnt malt. Its taste is full and the foam dense. This brand is immediately intended for refreshing the humankind’s neater half.

Tasted at the "3rd Czeh Beerfestival", Budapest (I think it was this one). Dark brown colour, creamy beige head on top. Roasty, light yeasty nose. Light crisp start, flavour’s of dark chocolate and coffee, nice, oily-liked, mouthfeel. Aroma’s mainly of roasted malt beside some grassy notes in the back. The finish is coffee/dark chocolate bitter and dry. On tap overall a very enjoyable one...

Rating #345, brought by my friend Mads to our dunkel-tasting

This was one of the better beers in the tasting. Appearance is dark brown, almost black, with an ok head. Aroma is rather vague, but has some sweet chocolate. Flavor is better than the aroma indicated, with a lot af sweet chocolate, bread, coffee and maybe some soapy notes. Body is medium and the beer is easily creamy.

Bottled. A light khaki colored head tops a medium copper colored body. The nose has some light notes of bologna and bread crust. There is also a little bit of almond and black tea. The taste is mostly tea with a little bit of raw potato. The finish has hints of raw grains. Overall, I am enjoying the dry, quick finish. Dunkel is not my favorite style, but this is done well.

Pretty decent dark beer! Only had a single pint of it but would have liked more.

Dark green bottle and a dark beer make for an interesting pour. Some cabbbage aroma but not in a bad way. First taste is darkish and just a tad of bitterness. Dark yet no gunk on bottom of bottle. Mostly enjoyable flavors are roasty and like some burned wet sood but it is not overwhelming in any way. Has enough beer personality to make it a beer but not enough to make it rude. Decent carbonation too. Finish has some of that typical pilsner bte so common in many of the beers from Check. It says on the side of the bottle: This brand is immediately intended for refreshing the humankind’s neater half. ...well I’m not sure about that, heheheh. It does however have this mild weird kinda tartness to it on the finish, if you look.

One pint green bottle on sale. I thought I caught a whiff of skunk when I opened it, but it didn’t come through when drinking. Reddish-brown, moderate head. Slightly watery, but with decent malt presence and some caramel and toast. Hops at the end (Zhatezki from the label...meaning Saaz hops from Zatec??) keep it from being sweet. A good value @ 99 cents.

On sale for the nice price at BOTW, and after the doppelbock, I was a bit worried about this one. But it is a nice true to form dunkel. Reddish brown, some tan head, spotty lacing. Brown sugar nose, a bit of toffee, aroma is sweet, sticky, syrupy, sugary with caramel. Decent.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - DEC 8, 2009
(bottle - 500 ml) Copper/brown pour with a very thin tan head. Aroma is sweet and malty with a light vegetable hint. Some good caramel as well. Almost smells like a good doppelbock. Sweet and malty at the start with a caramel and dry malt middle. Some light vegetable hints, but mainly good and sweet caramel malts. Thin-bodied and rather nice.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - NOV 10, 2009
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a medium beige head. Aroma was of mildly roasted, sweet malt. Flavor was of roasted, sweet malt; caramel; and bread. Very mildly hopped. Some strong mineral/metallic flavors that I found very unpleasant. A nice, basic dunkel (except for the metal taste).

Carabia (35) - Itä-Raasepori, FINLAND - NOV 4, 2009
A basic czech dark lager. Dark brown beer with a tiny head. The aroma is a little boring, just some plain malts, still it’s rather inviting. The taste has some syrupy malts.
