Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2008
Back from a Czech Republic pub-crawl this is part of my express ratings for the “typical” Světlý 11°- (Czech light Pils), Světlý 12°+ (Czech Pils), Polotmavý (Czech Amber Lagers) and Tmavý (Czech Black Lagers). Non-typical beers will receive personalized descriptions after the express ratings.
-------- /> How: Tap at brewpub (Pivovarský Dum, Prague)
The look: Almost black body with a short-lived tan head.
To me a typical Czech Tmavé (Czech Black Lager) is: Dark malts and barely any roastiness sensation. Some dark fruits flavours (raisins with a little figs, dates and prunes) wrapped in smooth dark caramel (borderline toffee) and a subtle chocolate note. A bit bready. Moderately sweet without much hops presence and only a mild bitterness (voluntary unbalanced it seems). Very smooth body, like a watery cream.
This one: More roasted than average with toasted raisins but overall less fruity. Some light coffee notes. A Czech Tmavý with a Stout inclination.

DruncanVeasey (7439) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2008
Pivovarsky Dum. Woody aroma with surprising hops, chocolate and smoke. Cains Dark Mild? Smooth and slightly roasty, with faint dark chocolate, but sneaking Saaz. Biscuit on the swallow. Tasty but a bit wishy-washy.

Ernest (6597) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 3, 2008
Draught, Dum/Prague. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, coffee), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Excellent rendition, clean, enticing, and well-balanced.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - DEC 16, 2007
Tap at Pivovarsky Dum. Almost black, dark hazy brown, with a hot chocolate foam head. Roasty chocolate, coffee bitter, low hop, dry aroma. Similar flavor with some roasted bitterness. Very smooth. Nice dunkel with a complex roastiness instead of the usual sweetness of other Czech dunkels.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 31, 2007
Draught. Lightly smokey-sweet malt nose. Deep cola-like brown with a thin patchy head. Balanced smoke and sweetness. Palate is almost too thin but just enough to support the flavor.
