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.

Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, - NOV 20, 2012
bottle from Herkku Stockmann, Helsinki!
Pours deep brown and ruby red with a small head. Smells malty roasty with lots of caramel and chocolate. Starts bitter malty roasty, with lots of coffee and burnt malts. Middle part is also malty bitter and roasty, paired with some dark chocolate. Goes into a chocolatey finish with some burnt malts and roasted coffee.

En god mřrk řl, der har en smag af mřrke malte. Ikke meget humle i den, men en god nydeřl.

UXO (1496) - CANADA - SEP 13, 2016
Appearance: clear deep brown with one finger of loose ivory head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: toasted malt, caramel, chocolate, slightly smoky. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter. (7/10) Medium body, lively to moderate carbonation, medium duration off-dry mildly bitter finish. (3/5) Gotta say, this is actually quite decent. Refreshing and relatively light despite its dark appearance. Worth trying. (14/20)

JoeZasada (314) - Beaumont, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 5, 2016
500ml Bottle. Pours a very dark reddish amber (but not hazy) with a thin brown head. Aroma of malt, notes of caramel and chocolate. Light but continuous carbonation. Taste is malty, but not sweet. Notes of coffee, a bit roasty. Light hop notes, kind of saaz-like. Moderate mouthfeel. Finish is bitter, with more saaz notes, some herbs, a bit earthy. Overall pretty decent for a Dunkel, basic but a good example of the style.

wojownik17 (271) - Kraków, POLAND - AUG 26, 2016
Zdecydowanie gorsze od jasnego Budweisera. Ciemno-brunatna barwa, w smaku lekka goryczka, chlebowość, typowy dunkel.
