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.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2011
330 ml bottle. Dark brown and clear. Small off-white fine-laced head. Soft nutty malt aroma. Hints of chocolade and brownies. Roasted malt flavours with a light smoky note. Caramel and a little ash. Velvety texture, but crisp and with a nice refreshing hop bitterness. Very drinkable.

ComradeK (1100) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 20, 2011
500ml bottle as Budejovicky Budvar Imported Dark Lager. Pours a deep, dark chestnut, with a large beige head, passable retention and good lacing. An alluring herbal, forest aroma greets the nose, with some dark malt notes coming through. Spicy herbal hops start it off, with a smooth, tannin-dominant middle section and a lasting caramel finish. A nice example of quality dark lager. Good stuff.

Erasmus_ro (2454) - Alabama, USA - MAR 18, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a large, thick, beige head. Aroma is weak, some roasted malts and some soapiness. Flavor is fortunately nothing like that. Roasted malts, coffee, salty liquorice - quite a lot of it. Palate is medium and carbonated. Really made me want to have it with some good food. Maybe a hot tomato-sauce based stew?

50 cl bottle, The Dram Shop, Sheffield, UK. Opaque coffee appearance, chocolate aroma with a hint of caramel and metal. Thick, coffee and more chocolate come through, with a bright hoppiness on the finish.

auvajs (144) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 16, 2011
Bottled. Drinkable dunkel, maybe little too watery but in acceptable measure, still I like Krušovice and Kozel and Herold black beers more so this one is rather under average.

Scopey (12245) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2011
On tap at U Medvidku, Prague. Colour is jet black with a foamy tan head. The nose is caramel and vinegar. Taste is caramel, coffee, dark chocolate and some vinegar. It’s uncomplicated but quite drinkable.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - FEB 8, 2011
A pretty good dunkel, and a great example of a not-too sweet Czech version. A slightly watery palate. Frothy head, conditioning is fine. Medium brown with ruby. Moderate caramel/brown sugar in the flavor, very slight leafy vegetableness. Aroma is pretty good, with a little fall smoky leaf added to bready brown sugar goodness. Easy, easy to drink. Fresh example from Wine of Dreams.BB mid-May 2011.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2011 Draught @ U Medvidku, Prague. Pours dark brown with a small white head. Sweet nose of fruit, bread and caramel. Tasty flavor of bread and caramel. Medium bodied. Clean.
