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.

Senka (1051) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 15, 2014
50cl can. As good as a bottle. Pours pitch black with porter-like head. Creamy, smooth, velvety and silky. Pleasant carbonation. Slightly sweet. Loads of charred malt, caramel and some coco hints. I prefer it served at 8degC. Usually, when shopping, I forget how good it is, and get some other dunkels. This is actually almost perfect.

From Hipercor. In Ikea’s pilsner glass. After dinner. Pleasant in all aspects. I only miss a bit more "punch" to consider it excellent.

DraftDodger (1041) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2015
Copenhagen 16/10 2014. 50 cl can from Rema 1000. Pours dark brown almost black with light brown head which subsides quickly. Aroma is sweet malts and a little coffee. Low carbonation. Taste is rather neutral at first but opens up with notes of coffee , a little chocolate and nice bitterness for balance. Nice Dark lager.

Andy_ (1040) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2013
Dark brown to black beer with some nice head. Aromas mostly of roasted malts and some coffee. Flavors of roasted malts, coffee, some chocolaty sweetness that sticks in the finish. Not much bitterness of hops though.

tomciccateri (1034) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - DEC 21, 2011
50cl brown bottle labeled in German from Vienna grocery store. Pours a clear dark mahogany with fading white head. Big "chocolate" aroma. Medium body, noticeable carbonation. Slightly dry dark malts flavor balance. No molasass or too much caramel dominant flavor common to most Czech dark beers. Light hop bitterness up front combines with carbonation to mitigate overly sweet flavor balance. Otherwise clean lager. OKAY.

500ml bottle served cold at home.. Dark Brown witha beige head that laces down the glass. Roasty mocha aroma, tasty chocolate coffee and smokey flavour. Full bodied, which has been a quality lacking in some dark lagers I’ve had.Slightly sticky palate. Much better than I expected. Ooh, bit of farmyard aftertaste!
