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.

FatPhil (12181) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 16, 2007
500ml bottle. Dark reddy brown, rich froth for a head. Roasty and hoppy aroma. Wickedly bitter hoppy taste fights with punchy dark burnt malt taste for your attention. Don’t get me wrong, this is a well balanced fight. Anyway neither wins until the end of the aftertaste, as the bitterness survives longer. What’s this? The burnt malt wants a rematch?...

imdownthepub (12161) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2006
Bottled, pasteurised, 500ml. Black beer with pale head. Nice malty sweet aroma leading to a big fruity flavoured beer, plenty of caamel and licquorice and fruity notes. Burnt charcoaly flavors too giving a bitter finish. Very pleasant.

thewolf (11727) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2006
Draught. Almost black with very little head. Has a sweet, caramel based aroma. It is a bit sharp in the taste, adding some citric tones to a very staying taste.

bierkoning (11669) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2006
Bought it in the Trink Gut in Nordhorn for only € 0,70 a bottle, named Budvar Premium Dark Lager. Dark brown color, creamy head. Roasted malt and grass in the aroma. Coffee, roast, apple and a grassy hopbitterness in the flavor. Also caramel. Thinnish, but certainly has complexity. Very well made dunkel.

Drake (11410) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle from Beer Run, Czechvar Dark label, best buy 01.31.14, so several months out of date even though I got this a few days ago and it was also new at the retailer. Pours a dark brown color with a thin creamy tan head. Poor head retention. Skunky aroma with notes of raisin and caramel. The taste is raisin, coffee, caramel, skunky hops. Thin bodied. Could be refreshing if not shipped way out of date in a green bottle. Fail.

On tap in Prague, pours a dark brown. Smooth mouthful. Mild flavour of nuts, caramel and roasted malt. Much better than ordinary Budvar. Refreshing.
