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.

Travlr (21443) - Charlotte, North Carolina, 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.

Koelschtrinker (17329) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 21, 2011
Sehr würziger Geruch mit deutlichem Karamalmalz Ton. Leichtsüßer Antrunk, der direkt von einem leicht bitteren Aroma verdrängt wird. Auch beim malzigen Teil des Bieres ist eine übergeordnete Bitterkeit vorhanden. Schom im Mittelteil kommt eine Hopfigkeit dazu, die aber nicht besonders stark erscheint, genau wie das ganze Bier. Das soll nicht heißen, es wäre ein wirklich mildes Bier, aber wirklich kräftig ist es nicht. Süffiges Bier mit ansprechender röstmalzigen Note. Test vom 30.1.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,12,13,13,12,13 - 12,70

harrisoni (17284) - 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.

Theydon_Bois (16885) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2013
Bottle on the train from Inverness to Hereford, thanks to Simon C for the pour, 21/10/13. Very dark mahogony brown with a thin tan head that dissipates to pondlife. Nose is dark malt, toffee, woody, nutty, earthy tones. Taste comprises bready malts, dark toffee, brown bread, brown sugars. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry malty finish. Decent dunkel.

yngwie (16506) - 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)

TBone (16163) - 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.
