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.

wheresthepath (1708) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2008
[Nitrokeg at the RISC Global Cafe, Reading] A hint of dusty, gone-off plain chocolate, but overwhelming flavour is a metallic bitterness. Some ash and sourness comes through in aftertaste, leaving a very dry mouthfeel, but overall this is pretty unpleasant. In all the court cases between the Czech Budweiser/Budvar brand and the giant A-B, we were all secretly rooting for the little guy, the Czech company. But in return for our support, they’ve gone mass market and this now tastes like grim, weak, macro swill. Thanks guys.

tlind2 (1236) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 27, 2008
500 ml bottle. Deep brown color, big tan head. Aroma of roasted malts. Pretty light body, with more roasted malts and a suggestion of coffee. Not bad.

bhensonb (12012) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 24, 2008
Draft at The Spaniards on the Heath. Dark brown color with orange/garnet hilites. Creamy light tan head. Dark toasted malt aroma. Near full bodied with medium carbonation. It is balanced, but whether from hop or burnt malt I cannot say. Suugests the old Guinness in a way, but with a different bitter.

Pours a deep dark brown. Aromas of roasted malts, smoke, and hints of fruit. Flavors of the roasted malts, some fruit, with a coffee aftertaste.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 8, 2008
Toasted brown with a loose tan fluff. Semi-sharp chocolate and coffee melds with a distinct nuttiness, toasted bread and light smokiness. Roasted and nutty from the start; mild caramel sweetness before a dry espresso finish. Stealthy, light; velvety with crisp carbonation.

Pleasantly dry, roasty and sessionable.

50 cl bottle, best before 5.2.2009.

Kavu (2665) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 6, 2008
Nice foamy top. Almost completely black. The aroma is not as strong as the color suggest and neither is the flavor. A bit sweet and malty. Much like dark Kozel.
