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.

dr.dod (436) - 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 (2417) - 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 (352) - 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 (4190) - 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.

12HundredBaud (262) - Sausalito, California, USA - MAR 28, 2011
33cl bottle from a local supermarket. It pours an almost pitch black liquid with some amber-ruby reflections, and with a medium beige head that dissipates and leaves no lacing. The aroma is very nice, mostly malty, with chocolate notes and a brandy like smell. It tastes likewise, sweet, with a light and pleasant hoppiness that partners with a coffee-like aftertaste, ending dry. Carbonation is soft, as it is the bitterness. While it is small-medium bodied and might have a little watery hint, It leaves a pleasant parfum in your mouth. Relaxing and refreshing dunkel with a very nice presentation (but no personalized crown cap).

mattphilips (801) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 27, 2011
U medvídků, Prága. Nagyon-nagyon sötétbarna színű, tetején pedig kitartóan megül a piszkosfehér, enyhén krémes hab. Illata nagyon üde, édeskés a pörkölt malátától, karamelltől és medvecukortól. Íze egy fokkal gyengébb, néha kicsit bántóan cukrosan édes, de azért nem rossz és frissítően hat, ami nem mindig tulajdonsága a dunkeleknek. Közepesen testes, frissítően szénsavas, száraz, kellemes főzet, de semmi különös.

anders37 (21888) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 26, 2011
Draft @ Green Lion Inn, Malmö. Pours a dark ruby brown color with a small longlasting off-white head. Had a slightly roasted sweetish malty caramel aroma. Roasted malty sweetish bready caramel flavor. Has a sweetish malty caramel finish.

suprchunk (2887) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2011
Dark ruby-brown. Small off-white creamy head that dies down quickly but leaves a thin layer of bubbles on top. Plenty of lacing left behind, but in sheets. Big malt and hop aroma. Much like the regular pils they offer with a bit of roastiness mixed in. Dry and sweet with a hop bitterness left over. Quite a good dark lager.
