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.

SilkTork (5346) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2008
Tap at Ship Centurion, Whitstable. Named Dark Lager. Light mouthfeel. Coffee grounds flavoured frisky carbonated lager. Blur of caramel in the finish. I’ve never quite got dark lagers. The light, clean body of a lager is fine for delivering a crisp, refreshing, thirst quenching drink that also cleans the palates - but when you combine it with dark, considered flavours there is an uncomfortable and unsettling clash. This was new to the Ship and the regulars were keen to try it - but it wasn’t proving popular with either the lager drinkers (nah, give us the Bitbuger) nor the ale drinkers (I prefer the Elgood’s Black Dog). I suspect the novelty of a black lager will soon wear thin, and the Budvar will be going home.

Skinnyviking (7491) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2008
High fluffy but lasting off-white head. Very dark red brown body. Lovely roasted barley malt aroma with a bit of caramel and hints of cocoa. Mild and yet hoppy caramel coffee flavor. Low carbonation. Long coffee like aftertaste.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - FEB 15, 2008
500 ml bottle given to me by my friend JP upon his return from Prague, served a few minutes out of the fridge from a Coors Banquet fluted glass. The voluminous dark tan head fills 1/3 of the glass, large-bubbled and decaying slowly atop the translucent molasses-hued body....faint burnt-grain notes, a hint of chocolate, but also alas some light skunkiness in the strong nose....the body is roasty, rather dry with just a bit of light chocolty residual sweetness certerpalate and fading rapidly....strong carbonation, fairly intense bitterness at the finish, all underdone by a very weak, thin body. Potential, but....

50 cL bottle. Pours dark brown with a little dense light bornw head. Lovely aroma of roasted malt and light hoppy fruity note. Flavour is smooth, almost chocolate like, malty and with a nice fruity note from the hops. Leads into a nice mild bitterness and roasted note in the finish.

Bottle.Budweiser Budvar Premium Dark Lager.4.7% alkohol tartalom,11.9% fűszerezetség,0.5 literes üvegben.Kitöltve igazi "fekete" kinézete van a habja kemény és tömör csontfehér.Illatán már érződik a karamell édessége és a maláta is.Íze is hozza az orron át érzett aromákat.Utóízében van egy kis csoki és előjön egy kis komlós keserűség is.Finom,itatja magát de nem túl "különleges".

jonas (5984) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JAN 20, 2008
Bottle, thanks pivnizub. Roasted, light coffeeish and citric aroma. Dark claret, big fluffy brown head. Roasted malt and caramelized sugar in the foreground, ashen burned or smoked notes. Fairly light body, maybe I am just too used to bavarian Dunkel, but I feel it doesnt support the agressive roast and caramel at all. Quick cigar-finish with Saaz shining through.
