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.

darkseduction (647) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - MAY 15, 2013
Flasche 33cl. Dunkles rotbraun mit dichtem, wolkenartigem Schaum. Kräftige Röst- und Karamellaromen steigen direkt in die Nase, dabei bleibt der Antrunk weich und süffig. Erfrischend. Leider kommen aufgrund der Röstaromen die feinen Noten des Saazer Hopfens nicht wirklich zum Tragen. Auch das Pasteurisieren mindert den Gesamteindruck.

vickey9 (645) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 6, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2012 Deep brown topped by a light creamy head. The nose is rich and toasty with a caramel, vanilla and chocolate notes including roasted malt aroma. It gives a bitter taste with spicy and herbal flavour. Body is medium, carbon high. Coffee and chocolate with dark fruits palate. Bitter aftertaste. B@H

zenkis (639) - Ogre, LATVIA - AUG 26, 2013
from bottle. Seems dark enough even through bottle, very pleasant, mild hops aroma, very interesting hops. Not grassy, not herbal or very aromatic but the combination of... weird but very pleasant. Taste is pleasant light sweet plus medium bitter, more from roasted malt. Flavor reminds roasted rye bread plus Bohemian pilsner. I haven’t tried dunkels for long time and his seems very solid. Medium bodied, a bit velvet texture, seems medium to high carbonated, dry finish. Pleasant.

ThreeCats (630) - ISRAEL - AUG 22, 2012
Large tan head over dark body with ruby highlights. Aroma of roast, dark chocolate, and coffee. Quite pleasing. Taste of roast and nuts, light body. More roast and some espresso in the palate. On the whole this is a bit of a one-dimensional beer (big roast and little anything else) but it does that one dimension well.

Mjp12 (628) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2015
Malt heavy lager, that must be a pale imitation of the original budvar version.

PetetheMeat (621) - Hove, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2007
Brown, beige collapsing head. Malty aroma. Sweet. Faintly metallic. Hard carbonation. Mild flavour. Roasted malts with notes of malty sweetness. Vague hoppy bitter finish. Watery palate. Boring.

0,5l bottle. Aroma is roasted malt and coffee, and taste is pretty much the same, with some caramel. It has medium bitterness. Good beer.

bunget (606) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2012
500ml bottle. Deep mahogany body with a big mocha head, small bubbles and good retention, but not much lacing. Aroma is hoppy, some burned caramel, coffee and vanilla. Flavour of lots of coffee, malt bitterness and yes, hops. No sweetness and low carbonation. Good, but was expecting more.
