Outstanding dark beer. Heavy molasses and malt flavor. Slight twist of burning sugar, chocolate and some bitterness on the aftertaste with licorice tones. Head was creamy, but not overly so. Was able to have the hard to find Grolsch popper top in Czech Republic. Easily one of the best dark beer in the Czech Republic. Purchased for 60 Krowns in super grocery store (about $1.50 US). Gotts love those currency exchanges!

500ml swingtop from the Coop November Discovery Beer Bag (3 of 5 - screw Kilkenny). In Canada this is bottled as Bernard Dark Lager. Little bit of tan bubbly foam on a bodacious black brew. Lots of cool toasted malt chocolate coffee aromas. Palate is light crisp and full of flavour, but very light bodied. This is sessionable (north americanese - crushable) and a killer bad boy brew. Sick, bro.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice dark beer pours with a completely black color and a decent dirty (light brown) head which sticks around. The aroma is surprisingly very gentle, slightly sweet and chocolately (+ some hops). The taste is therefore sweet and chocolatey almost completely without the usual roasted feel. The afterfinish kicks in late with its bitterness.
A very drinkable and easy going beer, with just enough taste.

Pours a dark black though looks kinda clear when held up to the light with a small off white head that completely dissipates after a few minutes. Aroma is clean roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, and slightly nicotine like. Flavour is chocolate, coffee, fairly malty, roasted malts more dominantly and a moderate sweetness.

Thisis one really special beer in comparison with czech standard black lager. Nice not very strong roasted malt taste with a bit of sweetness and hint or hops. This is a good beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2013 Sweetness and roasted malts in aroma. Dark brown appearance, head dissapears quickly. First impression - it remindes kvass. Starts with slight bitterness then changes to sweetness with bitter-sweet ending. Slight watery taste in background. Aftertaste slightly smoky bitter with hints of dark chocolate. Medium carbonation. Overall: good example of Czech dark lager.
