COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Modrá Hvězda 14° Tmavé. Unfiltered.

Počátek pivovarnictví v Dobřanech je datován již v roce 1378 udělením privilegia s právem várečným. Původní pivovar se nacházel v Dobřanech v Pivovarské ulici. V roce 1872 byl za řekou Radbuzou vystavěn nový měšťanský pivovar, který zanikl roku 1950. V roce 1998 byla obnovena výroba dobřanského piva otevřením pivovaru MODRÁ HVĚZDA. Spojením původního jména hotel Modrá Hvězda s tradicí výroby dobřanského piva, připomíná název tmavého čtrnáctistupňového speciálu "DOBŘANSKÁ HVĚZDA".

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2008
Draught at the brewpub. The best beer from this brewery. Dark brown colour with creamy head. Powdery chocolate in aroma, along with caramel and dark berries. Semi-sweet with pleasant rounded mouthfeel and good balance from the variation of malts, and accurate hopping. Bit of sweetish coffee here.

thewolf (11184) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2008
Tap @ the brewpub.
By far their best beer. Pours a deep mahogany red with a wonderful, creamy, small, beige head. Aroma is pleasantly malty, some grain and good degree of roasted malts. Fine, creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is pleasantly sweet, but never too much. Nice combination of caramel and roasted malts. Hops and roasted malts combine nicely in the finish. Nice.

imdownthepub (10297) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2008
Draught at the Brewpub. Dark brown with ruby hints. Chocolate, coffee aroma which follows into the beer, a sweet, silky chocolate smoothness. Finishes very sweet unfortunately.

harrisoni (13737) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2008
Draught at the brewpub during RBESG08. Very dark brown/ruby. Quite malty, but very drinkable, bit too syrupy on the malt for me, but not overly sweet. I can see that people would like this, but it’s too sweet for me I think. Aroma is good though. Fine.

oh6gdx (20333) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2008
Draught. Ruby red colour, small beige head. Aroma is malts, yeast and some mild notes of raisins. Flavour is much the same with a bunch of yeasty notes thrown in.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2008 Draught at the brewpub. Very dark brown, lasting beige head. Careful coffee aroma. Medium dry and mediu bodied and clean mouthfeel. Mild and lightly roasty with notes of coffee. Fairly low biterness. Well made, but a bit clean flavourwise.

Marko (3933) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 5, 2008
Tap at the brewpub during RBESG
Poured a very dark, almost black red colour with a small head that went away fast. A light but nice caramelly nose. The taste is caramel again, very creamy. good maltiness, even if it’s a bit light overall. A solid, quality dunkel that’s very drinkable to boot.

Tap at the brewpub. Alround rating: Quite a sweet roasty beast with hints of fruit. Just not my style.
