Quickly dissapating beige head over a medium bodided black beer. The blackness has redish highlightes. Cholcolate malt and saaz hops apparent in the flavor. Well made!

Thanks Sina! From the Mali Dućan Matejuška in Split. Dark brown body. Aromas of caramel and dark malts mainly. Caramel and the "dark maltiness" continues on into the taste, quite fine and actually complex, with no real hop presence. Sweetish, slightly fruity, slightly soapy. Soft and quite nice - definitely a very good dark lager!

Medium carbonation and small creamy brown head with lacing. Smell is potently sweet with caramel and smokey roast. Taste is sweet and malty. Strong taste of caramel and toffee with a cedar-y coffee finish. Vanilla is definitely present. Red berries balance out the roasted notes with sweetness. Sweet, Malty and full of caramel and toffee hints. It’s great!

Bottle at home, 06/07/16. Bought at Lidl with a label not currently on here: ’Czech Black Lager’. The bottle also mentions 1506 a few times which does not appear to be on the picture here. Picked up an aroma as soon as I started pouring. Dough, roasted coffee, a hint of herbs. As expected - it’s dark, with a more translucent cola look as the glass gets narrower. Good frothy off-white head. Extremely smooth, with an oily residue. Sweet, followed by bitterness. Not particularly carbonated. I like. Too many could become a bit sickly.
