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.

Bierkrug (2130) - - AUG 5, 2011
330 ml bottle from Wasanas in Germany. Dark brown with red hints to it and a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt with some caramel. Taste is of coffee, milk chocolate and caramel with a bitter palate. Not bad at all.

Maris (1365) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 2, 2011
From a 500ml bottle on 2/8/2011. Pours an extremely dark amber with big creamy head. Has a pleasant malty aroma, with a touch of chocolate. There’s quite a bit going on flavour wise - a big dollop of roasted malt, chocolate, a bit of coffee, some smokiness and a firm bitterness. A very enjoyable dark beer.

tkrjukoff (4302) - SWEDEN - JUL 25, 2011
50 cL bottle, Scandic Hotel, Kuopio. Pours dark brown with a small creamy tanned head leaving lace. Aroma is very nice; roasted malts, fruity, sweetish and hoppy. Lean velvety medium body mouthfeel. Flavour is malty, roasted, chocolate, fruity, bitter and slightly sweet. Finishes not too bitter with a nice roasted touch.

Good dark colour. Aroma has some light roast but also spicy hop and a slight caramel, burnt caramel note. The mouthfeel is medium, more full than the regular pilsner as you would expect. There is a good malt flavour with a light roast edge that makes it interesting. Overall I quite enjoyed this beer and great euro dark lager.

mkel07 (5085) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 14, 2011
500ml bottle. Very deep but level layer of light brown foam sits above a dark black base. Aromas are pleasant but not overly intense or overpowering. Flavour lets it down a bit, too thin and watery and light on the palate.

On Tap. It is a smooth textured, tasty dunkel. It really hit the spot on a hot summer’s day.

floydian1 (1344) - FNQ, Australia, - JUL 6, 2011
500ml bottle from Dan Murphy’s. Dark brown pour with a medium beige head. Nose is toasted malts with caramel and coffee notes. Flavour is sweet malts with a slight bitter finish. Easily drinkable with a low carbonation and a light-medium body. A bit too sweet for my liking.

Davros (2746) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 2, 2011
Pours dark brown, almost black, with a large lasting head. Nose shows lots of rich dark malt with nutty notes, chocolate, cola and spicy hops. Similar flavours, lots of nutty and bready malt with cocoa underneath. A bit cloying. Finishes with a mild roasty bitterness. Carbonation is a bit full on, body feels a bit watery.

peermac (59) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2011
Fra tapp pĺ John Bull i Aalborg. Řlet ser innbydende ut, og smaker ikke ille! Det er et tydelig brent-preg, men lite maltsřdme igjen. Relativt kort. En behagelig řl uten de helt store noen veier.

Koelschtrinker (16798) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 21, 2011
Sehr würziger Geruch mit deutlichem Karamalmalz Ton. Leichtsüßer Antrunk, der direkt von einem leicht bitteren Aroma verdrängt wird. Auch beim malzigen Teil des Bieres ist eine übergeordnete Bitterkeit vorhanden. Schom im Mittelteil kommt eine Hopfigkeit dazu, die aber nicht besonders stark erscheint, genau wie das ganze Bier. Das soll nicht heißen, es wäre ein wirklich mildes Bier, aber wirklich kräftig ist es nicht. Süffiges Bier mit ansprechender röstmalzigen Note. Test vom 30.1.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,12,13,13,12,13 - 12,70
