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.

mt_hall (188) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2015
Bottled. A very dark red-brown, almost black. Foamy, light brown head. Chocolate, cola, and molasses on the nose. A sweet start (cola again) with a drier finish. Surprising light, not the thick mouthfeel I was expecting. Very drinkable.

jtw (1153) - farmington, Michigan, USA - OCT 22, 2015
labeled as Czechvar here in the USA - quite a dark brew, darker than i expected. malty and toasty, clean with a good balance. not overly sweet despite the malt aroma, and very well put-together. excellent brew, well executed for the style.

Pours very dark brown with a huge tanned head that disappears quite fast. Aroma; Roasted malt, chocolate and some coffee. Flavours; some malt, coffe and chocolate tones and a watery flavour thru all the taste palette. You can actually drink it like water during a workout

Intense dark color, dry, soft-caramel tart flavor without the predominance of sweetness. Beer exudes subtle aroma of roasted malt

MarcinG (427) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2015
Ciemny kolor prawie nieprzezroczysty z brazowa obfita i lekko palona piana ktora utrzymuje sie calkiem dlugo. Karmelowe nuty i palony chmiel byloby lepsze gdyby nie lekki metaliczny posmak.
