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.

Nice balance, some sweetness and a strong hint of liquorice. Goes down easily, not overly complex but certainly a good beer.

davidm (2057) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 4, 2011
Bottle 500ml. Great, well balanced dunkel. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, and coffee. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness. Palate is oily, with a thin-to-medium body. Dark brown with a frothy head.

abstractbeer (239) - NORWAY - JUN 3, 2011
Bottle. Dark brown color,almost black. Nice, creamy head. Slightly metallic aroma at first which turns into a slightly chocolate/licorice kind of malty aroma. Good mouthfeel, very drinkable. Fruity flavor, with some chocolaty malts, some roasty notes and a hint of metallicness. Not bad.

Kristall-König (2678) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Dem super-dunklen Dark Lager entsrömt ein schwer malzig-röstiger Geruch, stout-artig. Der Geschmack ist kaffeeartig-karamellig, wobei sich die Herbe dezent im Hintergrund hält. Ein trockenes Finish bildet den Abschluß. Das Dark Lager von Budweiser Budvar bedarf einer gewissen Eingewöhnung, die sich aber lohnt. Ein ausgewogenes, leckeres Bier, das durch seinen sahnigen Körper zu gefallen weiß. In der Bewertung ein glatter Durchmarsch der 12.Test vom 13.11.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche

dr.dod (440) - Szeged, HUNGARY - MAY 28, 2011
500ml bottle, from CBA, Hungary. Fine sweet, chocolate and caramell smell, but taste isn’t harmonic, isn’t sweet at all. It is not problem, but not harmonic. Medium tasted, dark brown beer with correct foam and Co2. Sometimes earthy Saaz hop is too strong for this beer, especially at first, and aftertaste.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2011
Well, pleasantly surprised. It was pretty drinkable. Bottle from my local offy. Poured dark with a medium light brown head. Aroma of a pleasant old man. Hint of Werthers Original, smoke and coffee.

jonno (2441) - JAPAN - APR 16, 2011
Wonderful chocolate toffee on the nose. Immediately thinnish on the palate, there is a moderate chocolate and cream fining running from first contact to a medium finish. Easy drining and more to it than most in the style.

seritomi (356) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 14, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2011 Áttetsző sötétbarna hozzá a természetesen világosbarna hab. Illata édes malátás. (Ízre nem édes.) Megkóstolva meglepően vékony sör kerül a nyelvünkre barna létére. De nem gond mert kellemes harmonikus, kávés, pörkölt, hamus. Karakteres maláta komponens. Komlós keserű, lágy rövid utóízzel. Mindent egybevetve jó sör.

JohnRMurdoch (4229) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 11, 2011
UPDATED: APR 12, 2014 Bottle @ The Crystal Palace JDW & a present. Grassy flowery malt aroma. Very dark brown colour with a good beige head. Caramel coffee malt flavour. Watery texture. Average.
