COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Prémiový tmavý ležák doplňuje tradiční nabídku piva z pivovaru Budějovický Budvar, n. p. od roku 2004. Je vyroben stejným postupem jako originální světlý ležák, za použití nejvybranějšího žateckého chmele, moravského sladu, vody čerpané ze 300 m hlubokých artéských studní a tří druhů speciálních barevných ječných sladů: mnichovského, karamelového a praženého.

Charakterizuje jej výrazně tmavá barva, suchá, jemně hořká karamelová chuť bez dominance sladkosti. Vůně je delikátní po praženém sladu.

EchoShine (33) - Athens, GREECE - AUG 10, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2012 From beginning seems like a one trick pony on the roasty malt with subtle caramel. This dominates and stands out to the end of the 500ml glass. The beer stands up thu-out. I don’t get the coffee and chocolate complexities of other Czech darks at all. This has something that staropramen dark is missing and vice versa.... maybe I’ll mix a half and half haha. Least the Staro gives off a deeper coffee aroma. 2 Finger head dies rater quickly on the few I had in hot weather. << update. I’m trying to understand the hop character. something tells me the roasty malts (that are sweet when I lick the inside of my cheaks and lips) are hiding the ingredients and process that are lost from the more original recipes. Well my rating stands at a 2.8 ... and could swing up to a 3 me thinks (maybe). Without this roast would be very flat. update: Get more of a bitter edge on this long finish note, almost stout and not multi-complicated a beer. Now have a better taste on this as the first time my throat was a bit off which the malt roast was a bit irratating. I now have a bit better bite on the top of the tongue so that also bumps up this beer for me a bit. 3 is kind :)

Caytinator (1005) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 25, 2012
0.5L bottle. Poured black with perfect 2-finger head. Appetizing aroma, sweet. Taste is very pleasant and typical of the stye, a bit "oily" of a mouthfeel but not bad. I like malty brews, and this one suits me fine.

omikr0n (867) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 20, 2012
Bottle. Roasty aroma with some coffee, malt and hops. Taste very similar, with something added, perhaps licorice, perhaps some spices. One of the better dunkels I’ve had.

jamesie1857 (1944) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2012
Thin white head on dark body. Light roast aromas of chocolate, caramel, toffee. Pleasant taste, refreshing and light with burnt malts and coffee giving it some character.

kingstoni (1946) - FINLAND - JUN 12, 2012
Tap. Slightly reddish very dark brown color. Frothy light brown head. For a Czech lager there’s quite much of fruity hops in the aroma. Dry coffee flavor with some bitterness.
