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.

Musty, metallic aroma. Maybe a little oxidized. Deep black color with ruby highlights if held to the light. Taste is slightly flowery which might make this a little out of style for a Schwarzbier or Munich dunkel style. But nonetheless a pretty good beer in its own right. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TorbenJensen (490) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2015
Durable, creamy foam. Good aroma of roasted malt which most resembles classic dark mild ale. The flavor is deep full of roasted malt, light caramel and good hoppy aftertaste. Customize rich thirst-quenching properties with good balance between malt / hops.

KoNrRiI (765) - Ĺrhus, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2015
0.5 bottle. Black color and a small, off-white head. Aroma of dark malts, coffee, and a delicate note of toast. Taste of caramel, again coffee, and dark chocolate; relatively bitter due to all that. Medium body, slick texture, and lively carbonation. Finish is even more coffee-like than the rest. Overall, not a bad beer given its commercial provenance.

Tuoksu on maltainen ja kahvinen. Väriltään samean tummaa, melkeinpä mustaa vaaleanruskealla vaahdolla. Maussa on katkeraa kahvisuutta, ruohoisuutta ja palanutta leipää, jotka pyöristyvät paahdetun pähkinän jälkimakuun. Tuo myös mieleen soijakastikkeen. Jälkimaku viipyilee pitkään.

MotherBrother (812) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2015
Pour a somewhat clear mahogany brown, with a large foamy tan head. Aroma has slightly roasted malts, fair nuts, bread, slight licorice, faint notes of green coffee beans. Taste is slightly sweet up front, with a well balanced dose of bitterness. Watery bodied, with a rather flat carbonation.

hrabren (142) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 11, 2015
0.5 bottle from Kauffland, Umag. Drank this before, only rating it now. Dark brown with reddish tint, small off white, almost tan head, lasts quite long. Pleasant aroma of roasted malts, wood, caramel, even dried fruits. Creamy, medium body, roasty bitterness, light carbonation, roasty finish. Not bad at all.

Grisza77 (102) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 7, 2015
Ciemne, nieprzejrzyste piwo o obfitej pianie szybko redukującej się do zera. Aromat palonych słodów, kawowy. W smaku kawa zbożowa i lekka kwaskowość. Goryczka niska. Ogólnie całkiem przyjemne czeskie ciemne piwo, bez szaleństw, ale nie jest źle.

bkurtz (1006) - PERU - JUL 1, 2015
Bottle - Pours a clear, brown with a smallish head. Caramel and bread aromas. Aromas continue through the taste with sweet malts and somewhat cloying. Little carbonation, but that might be the age of the bottle. OK, but I like this style.

Dark brown body, lasting beige head. Aroma of burned bread. Taste has a medium bitterness, some roastiness, coffee-like nuances in the finish.
