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.

ALLOVATE (2840) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 7, 2011
Very excited beer, couldn’t wait for me to tilt the bottle once the cap came off it leapt out the neck and straight onto the table beneath. What I did manage to get into the glass was awe inspiring visually. In a Budvar mug it presents the deepest, shimmering ruby tinged brown with very lively, fine carbonation raising up a mammoth, rocky, tannish head of foam that is enviable. Well retained, a mess of suds web the glass as it empties. Grassy, chaff whiff up first before revealing burnt, bitter caramel, tar and molasses on the nose. Sweet, fudge-like start runs head on into some smoky, burnt wood and forest-floor mulch. Big weedy hops give it a rough taste of the beers of old. It’s so dry in the finish, with a pleasing smoky woodiness that draws out of the saliva glands. Hints of damp peat late, and some burnt dark fruit gives it a nice bitterness while a little pine resin and oak float through the mouth and throat. Soft, spritzy and creamy mouthfeel, medium to medium-light bodied. It’s good to see such rawness in a dark lager, this is a uniquely flavoured Dunkel with all the traits of a good Kellerbier. Surprisingly nice. (50cL, BB 18/05/11, Cellarbrations Kinross)

Sigmund (6380) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 5, 2011
330 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 4.7%. Dark brown colour, big to moderate tan head. Nice aroma of slightly burnt caramel and brown bread. The flavour has also notes of caramel, fresh black bread, and burnt brown bread toast. Not very sweet. Maybe not so exceptional, but a drinkable and decent dunkel. Should not be drunk too cold.

Secondo me in bottiglia perde molto (come la sua versione chiara) perň era tutto sommato potabile

Warning! Early amateur rating! Dark lager, at first the toasted malt was a bit overpowering but there is bitter chocolate and the crispness of the palate helps. A grower and ultimately quite drinkable.

suurjuust (2736) - ESTONIA - NOV 15, 2010
Dark mahogany with a tan head. Earthy, malty nose. Toasted malts, some caramel, hint of sweetness and a hoppy, spicy and dry finish. It’s good and balanced, but I still prefer the lager.

BeerBaboon (1903) - FINLAND - OCT 21, 2010
Big ol’ pint. Dark brown lager. Brown, almost grey tones in the head that is rather massive for some reason. A little roasted. Hay. Just a little bit sweet. It’s not exactly full-bodied but it’s not the thinnest kind either. Just a little bit of something sweet. like syrup, on the nose. Towards the end of the pint I begin to notice some chocolaty notes.

lusikka (7649) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 27, 2010
500 ml bottle. Rated @ 24.4.2009.
Pours a dark brown colour with a small beige head. Toasted malts on the nose. Mild sweet aroma of toasted malts, caramel with mild coffee notes. Medium bodied with a surprisingly watery mouthfeel. Decent Dunkel.

hawthorne00 (3361) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2010
Bottle. Dark brown with some red at the edges, large loose beige head. Rather fresh aroma of caramel and earthy/ grassy hops. Taste is barely sweet with chocolate and caramel. A touch of bitterness at the end with a little explosion of spiciness as well as some earth. Less sweet and much hoppier than others listed here as Dunkels I’ve had. I’ve never got the fuss about their pilsener, but this is an elegant quaffer indeed.
