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.

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 (2770) - 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 (1941) - 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.

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 (3421) - 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.

tderoeck (7895) - Gent, BELGIUM - SEP 22, 2010
02/09/2010 - 50cl bottle @ bar in Koprivnica

Clear darkbrow beer with deep red glare. Little beige rocky head. Aroma has caramel, dried fruits and some dark chocolate. Medium body and somewhat creamy texture. Taste of caramel, brown sugar and mocha. Aftertaste has coffee and toffee. Correct brew, but not very interesting.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2016 Had at several bars in Prague. Lovely dark lager. Coffee flavors. Mineral and rich, but very very drinkable. A favorite of the missus. Serving: Tap

No aroma at all. this isn’t so good. Quite roasty, but with a strong nutty character as well as tasting a bit buttery. Finish is thin. Very disappointed with this. It may have some coffee notes as well. On tap at a bar in Prague.
