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.

muffel (144) - Lower Saxony, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2010
0.5l on tap. Dark brown color, medium light brown head. Medium carbonation. Taste is very malty, caramel, nuts and roasted coffee. Slightly sweet and a hint of bitterness in the aftertaste. Definitely better than the bottled version I think.

rozsoma (612) - Győr, HUNGARY - FEB 11, 2010
Nice black colour and brown creamy head. Intensive aroma of roasted malts and hay. Dry roasted flavour with quite good bitterness. Unfortunately almost no flavour on the roof of the mouth, and a bit watery texture but it is well hidden by the craggy hay feature which escorts the beer until the aftertaste. As time goes by, caramelic notes come around. A characteristic dunkel which is compulsory for everybody!

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2010 Very dark brown color, giving some head; aroma of roasted malt, some sweetness: hints of liquorice and caramel; medium body, mouthfeel thick enough, but still easy to drink; flavor of some caramel-like sweetness, mostly at first, but then balanced by roastness with some bitterness and dryness in the finish.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2009
From keg@Masné Krámy Beerhouse in České Budějovice. Dense, two-finger light brown head. Body is translucent, dark brown. Fresh, light acidulous aroma with coffee and cocoa. Notes of dark bread and hayish hops. Strong malt body, with roasted tones and a fine dryness. More coffee, cocoa and dark bread, and also a hint of sour-sweet fruits and licorice. A gentle bitterness in the backbone. Crisp in the mouth. Very refreshing, high drinkability.

Alphadelic (2010) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 25, 2009
A nice, milky, smoked aroma. Woody, sweet but with an ashy bitterness. Long dry wood finish. Something coke-like about it. Pretty ace though not perfectly drinkable
