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.

yngwie (14703) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2008
Bottle. A clear, dark brown beer with a beige head. Slightly oxidizied aroma with a little touch of smoke. Sure on the malty side, could use a little more balance, but quite good. The flavor is on the other hand a bit boring, roasted and malty, lacking on the hops and bitterness. Coffee-like finish. Medium body with a decent carbonation level. Except for the "dark" part, the beer is quite boring. Easy to drink though. (080620)

harrisoni (14508) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2012 Cask at GBBF Very dark brown. Not a lot of aroma, but good malts though in the mouth flavour with some burntness and coffee. Not a bad dunkel with a lasting coffee finish. 3.1 Re-rate bottle at home during the Budvar tasting. Good malt and good choc.

Travlr (14467) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 3, 2009
Decent enough lager, clean, crisp, dry and nicely bitter. But paled in comparison to other lagers and pilsners in Prague, especially those on draught.

MiP (13995) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2010
Draught at KŘ10. Mild malty aroma. Very dark brown colour. Very small tan head. The flavour is mild and spicy. A hoppy dunkel.

TBone (13359) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 23, 2005
Dark nut brown, small brown head. Aroma has fruits: flowery hops, trefoil, menthol and hints of roast. Refrshing with flowery hops. Oily hoppy and chocolaty aftertaste. Much better than "normal" Budvar.

Dark brown with amber highlights. Sweet, syrupy demerara notes with hints of wood and molasses. A little bit on the fizzy side. Sweet, slightly earthy finish.
