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.

0.5L bottle. Usual caramel hop aroma, very delicate smoke shines. Taste is sour smoked and cooked vegetables with little caramel. Finish is stupid bitter herbs water. Waterly finish spoils it all. Nothing special.

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.

0,5 l bottle, apparently in a new design, named Budvar B: Dark Lager. Black, caramel-colour dense persistent froth. Aroma: malty, aromatic wood. Palate: definetely a Pilsener, quite light and dry for a dark beer, I would have expected something more porter-style. I imagine a brewer having done Pilsener all his life and now brewing his first porter. This is what comes out. Very drinkable - I could surely manage to drink two bottles.

Po pewnym niesmaku wywołanym Budweiserem B:Strong, nie miałem specjalnych oczekiwań wobec ciemnego Budvara. Czarny kolor w szkle, z beżową pianką prezentował się jednak obiecująco. W zapachu również zawodu nie było - czekolada, nieco paloności nawet... Smak w sumie mnie zaskoczył. Nie zanotowałem większych wad, dodatkowo pojawiły się nuty kawowe. Do tego niskie wysycenie dodawało pijalności. Choć piwo jest nieco nudne, jest całkiem przyzwoite i łatwe w odbiorze...

Studená fľaša z chladničky. Krásna farba aj pena, príjemná karamelová vôňa. Chuť vyvážená, nie príliš sladká, v Budejoviciach vedia čo robia. Veľmi dobré čierne pivo!

Malt heavy lager, that must be a pale imitation of the original budvar version.
