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.

Michcio (453) - Gdansk, POLAND - JUL 13, 2016
Barwa ciemnobrązowa, z przebłyskami, piana w kolorze złamanej bieli, dość obfita, ale niezbyt trwała. W aromacie słodowość, lekki DMS się niestety pojawia, lekka paloność. W smaku dość wytrawne, palone, nieco kawowe, ciemne słody, goryczka średnia nawet minimalnie w kierunku wysokiej, palona. Treść i wysycenie w normie, dobra pijalność. Nawet niezłe, bardziej przypomina jednak Szwarzbiera. Gdyby nie dość słaby aromat, byłoby nieźle, tak jest przeciętnie z plusem.

piscator34 (2298) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 3, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown in colour with strong carbonation. Aromas are of slightly fruity lager yeast, minerals, and roasted malts. Flavors are of sweet pilsner malt, coffee, ash, and more mild fruit. No caramel notes, and not overly sweet. Decent overall, and likely very food friendly (especially with grilled meats).

bobroman (823) - Torun, POLAND - MAY 26, 2016
Tasted on 24.01.16. Pleasant but not very intensive aroma of caramel. Small head disappearing to ring. Almost completely black colour. Pleasant sweetness of caramel and burned malts. Light but enjoyable.

bedzinianin06 (417) - - MAY 16, 2016
Obfita i dosyć gęsta, beżowa piana. Brązowe, klarowne piwo. Lacing. W aromacie kawa i trochę jakiejś słodyczy. Średnie nagazowanie. Świetna, wyraźna goryczka - pierwszy raz spotykam taką w tmavym. Piwo średnio pełne, wydaje się dosyć gładkie. W smaku raczej wytrawne. Kawa, orzechowe, troszkę karmelu. Smak niby fajny, ale mało intensywny.
