1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle as Bernard Cerny Lezak in Prague. Pours clear reddish brown with huge light brown foamy head. Aroma is sour appels, light hops (grass and citrus) and hints of sea breeze (?). Taste is light bitter, light sour and light sweet. Body is watery with good carbonation. Finish is medium long and light sweet with notes of caramel, brunt sugar and (too) thin black coffee. Very disappointing

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from Tallinn. Dark reddish brown colour, large frothy mostly lasting beige head, lacing. Heavily malty aroma of toast, chocolate, caramel and a bit of coffee, light to moderate floral hops. Taste is initially bittersweet and moderately acidic, turning into a short moderately bitter finish with a burnt feel. Medium to full body, oily texture, lively carbonation. Certainly one of the better Czech tmavýs, could’ve used a significantly larger amount of hops though.

Billed on the bottle as "World's Best Dark Lager" and the claim us plausibly true. Excellent flavour and aroma. Simple recipe with no special additives. Not surprising since the brewery has existed since 1597.

On Tap @ Wellington, Hull. Black with a big beige head. Lots of carbonation. Aroma of Marmite and seawater. A very strange and unpleasant salty/umami taste, rather like soy sauce. I struggled with this beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown with big and quickly diminishing head. Very faint aroma with dark malts note and caramel only. Taste is slighlty sweet and moderately bitter. High carbonation and watery body. Not bad one.
