(Tap) Pours dark with beige head. Interesting mix of malts create a roasted chocolate flavor. Smooth mouthfeel, and great balance. Only complaint would be the low level of carbonation, but that seemed to be the theme of the night at Pivovarsky Dum.

[on tap at brewpub]
Opaque dark reddish black with lasting, tan foam. Nice toasty malt aroma with well-balanced Saaz hops. Smooth toasty lager flavour with an ascertive but well balanced bitterness and hops flavour. Less sweet than other Tmavys I’ve tried. Light body, lingering bitterness that may be from the dark malt.

NOt really big deal either, but it was interesting in shape, a Bohemian too, but the colour was a little darker thqan most.

On tap at the brewery tap. Black beer, lasting beige head. Not a tremendous aroma, some dark malts, quite good in mouth with a drying powder coffe finish. Quite good strength. Cross between a dark lager and a porter. Fine

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
31-12-04 from Pivovarsky Dum. One of my favourite bars I have made three visits to this place in the last couple of years or so, it’s excellent. Very dark beer with a large white head, lovely roasted flavours with some chocolate easy drinking and very smooth I can only criticise it for being just a bit to sweet, otherwise it’s a very good beer.

Bitter, roasty yet thin. I enjoyed it. Quality stuff from the folks at Dum. Nice charming brewpub in middle of nowhere, Prague.

Pours dark brown with a light tan head that lasts. Chocolate roastiness all around in this beer with a bit of fruitiness in the finish. Kinda has a bit of soured beer taste in the end like guiness which keeps it very refreshing. Very smooth body with a nice balance of hops and malts.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2008 On tap at the brewpub in 2005:
Caramel-covered almonds and chocolate on the side. Roasted malts are there, but the dominating sweetness isn’t interesting enough to keep me more than curious.
Lots of coffee beans, espresso-style, thrive in a well-nourished body. Portly for a low-gravity lager, decently brewed, and perhaps the most interesting tap offering they had the day I visited. 3.2/5
"Nothing to write home about" doesn’t necessarily mean you’re not enjoying yourself.
On tap at the brewpub in 2008:
Lots of coffee in the nose, but not as much in the flavor profile. Earthy, detached roastiness adds complexity along with a raisiny fruitiness. This one too was much better all around than the one I had a few years ago. 3.5/5
