500ml flip-top bottle from bestillingsutvalget, Systembolaget. Beige, one-finger lacing-head. Shining brown coloured body. Smell of mid-sweet grainy malts. Chocolate-caramel malts in flavour supported by dry, herbal hops towards the ending. Soft in the mouth. Medium bodied, and really a well composed dunkel. Enjoyed while watching Sábliková on TV, running very fast on 3000m. Good Czech beer and even better Czech speed skater (Tromsř, 09.01.2010).

Lahev s typickým patentním uzaveřem:Almost clear, chestnut-amber coloured, moderately bitter-hoppy nose with a distinctive caramelly background; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied and quite soft; lingering dryish bitter-caramelly finish. Pěkné pivo…

Swing-top bottle: Clear amber coloured, bigger fluffy tanned head, sticking to the glass; distrinctive herbal-hoppy nose, covering sweet malt; mild bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied, gentle MF; moderate sweet-malty finish. A rather hop-accented "Rezak", pleasant, but not very impressive..........

Swing-top bottle. Tangy chocolate-caramel malt aroma. Reddish brown color with large tan head. Light sweet caramel malt - watery, metallic finish. Light body. Decent flavor for what’s there but too light.

Draught GBBF 09. An amber coloured beer with a sponge like whitish head. The aroma is malty biscuity with brown bread. The taste is quite rough burnt bread, fruitcake and oats. Undignified and a little unpleasant in the mouth in some ways.

Medium but very nicely stable cream-coloured head over hazy chestnut beer. Discreet, but nice nose with earthy, dark leaves and pastry notes - some Maillard? Dry, very earthy & leafy taste. Virtually no restsugars, pretty impressive. Bit of ironoxide in the flavour as well - the water? or more Maiilard? Creamy mouthfeel - not overly well-bodied, but certainly not empty. Very good Dunkel - cheerfully abstaining from the dreaded sweetness that plagues many’s the German sample. Thanks to the people providing - they were right about this one!

Tap at Duende in Prague. Medium Brown, like a dark amber beer, with a white head. Not much aroma at first, too cold, I guess, then it came out in a slightly roasted malt. Flavors of coffee, caramel, iron, and toffee. Not very sweet; strongly roasted. Dry and highly hopped. Medium to lighter body with strong carbonation. Good example of a dry dark lager.

On tap (gravity dispense) at Great British Beer Festival, day 3 on 6 August 2009 as Bernard Jantar. Darkish lager - oak colour. Strong malt aroma. Slightly sweet flavour. Respectable but not as enjoyable as of some other Bernard beers I’ve tried - a bit too much sweetness for me.
