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.

maneliquor (3483) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 3, 2011
Pours dark brown wih a medium tan head. Aromas of earthy pine, roasted malts and raisins. Taste is much the same, lots of earthy, roated flavours that make way for an easy drinking brew. Overrall its nice enough, just nothing special

prawlie (1492) - ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2011
500 mL bottle from Tesco poured into a pint glass at home. Certainly looks like a dark lager. Looks great with its dark as night colour and generous head. Pleasant, rich but understated aroma, more like a porter than a lager. It tastes like it smells, a very nice and smooth brew. That said after a couple of glugs the novelty wears off a little. Still nice, but not excelling.

janubio (659) - SPAIN - JAN 17, 2011
330 ml. bottle. Pours a dark mahogany colour, with a big tanned head leaving a lace all over when it fades. Smell is roasted, like burnt wood, earthy chocolate. Mouth has dried fruits, chocolate and a the burnt wood earthy finish. Medium to light body, I would have like it a little bit more strong. Drinkable and good, but I prefer the usual lager one.

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 (6484) - 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.
