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.

Kavu (2728) - 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.

esox (1172) - Oulu, FINLAND - APR 17, 2008
500 ml bottle. Medium head is light brown, fine textured and qite creamy. Dark brown liquid has shade of amber against the light. Light to medium sweet flavor with lightly roasted and sweet caramel malts. Also some coffee aromas. Very light bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel is smooth but a bit watery and boring.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2008
Back from a Czech Republic pub-crawl this is part of my express ratings for the “typical” Světlý 11°- (Czech light Pils), Světlý 12°+ (Czech Pils), Polotmavý (Czech Amber Lagers) and Tmavý (Czech Black Lagers). Non-typical beers will receive personalized descriptions after the express ratings.
-------- /> How: Tap late-night (when all the good beer bars are closed) at some very cool pub in Prague but with a sucky beer selection
The look: Dark brown body with medium beige head
To me a typical Czech Tmavé (Czech Black Lager) is: Dark malts and barely any roastiness sensation. Some dark fruits flavours (raisins with a little figs, dates and prunes) wrapped in smooth dark caramel (borderline toffee) and a subtle chocolate note. A bit bready. Moderately sweet without much hops presence and only a mild bitterness (voluntary unbalanced it seems). Very smooth body, like a watery cream.
This one: As above but less of everything and a bit more toffee flavour. Hints of black liquorice. Body felt a bit empty. Too clean.

Plovmand (6843) - Helsinge, DENMARK - APR 2, 2008
Bottle. Pours dark brown with medium floffy head. Aroma is malty with some roastiness. Flavour is dark candy sugar and dark malts. Good bitterness. Pleasant dunkel.

evilempire (137) - sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2008
draught at Moldava station, Ceske Rupublika. A smooth, dark, roasty flavoured beer, with a fairly dense, lasting, head. actually somewhat similar to a strong mild, with a coffee & chocolate aftertaste. certainly preferred this to any of the brewery’s pale offerings. tasted all the better for costing 35p, a tenth of the price in most UK pubs

Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2008
Dark mahogany with a red hue and a huge, nice and creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and caramel. The flavour has sweetness and notes of roasted malt, caramel, candy sugar and a suitable, slightly citrussy, bitterness in the finish, and at the end also slightly dry. It’s smooth, mellow and pleasant.
