COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Produced from special dark malts, which is why even its foam is dark.

Clear brown with a decent sized beige head that last a little while and then faded away. Syrupy chocolate aroma with a touch of licorice and caramelised nuts. On first taste the caramel comes barrelling in, but because of the low abv it seems to saturate quickly and isn’t as present in subsequent mouthfulls. Light bodied, again because of the abv. Good carbonation peps it up a little while still being very drinkable. Nice, sweet aftertaste that seems to satisfy. However, IMHO, with some more bollocks this could be a very good beer, but as it is it is just good.

A very unique flavor for this czech beer. A friend recently visited Finland and brought back this little gem. I must say for such a low abv. it had a solid taste. If I had to compare it to a beer in the states I would say its alot like drinking Modelo Negra but with an extreme caramel flavor. Good finish. Very smooth and sweet. If you are ever able to try "Double Goat" beer, I think you should.

Stefano (1852) - Esbjerg, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2007 Amber with an offwhite head. Aroma is malty and slightly floral. Full roast malt flavour with some sweetness, although the taste gets dryer in the roasted.

On tap. Quite interesting, best Czech dunkel I’ve tried perhaps. Sarsparilla with a weird caramel aftertaste. Have since tried it bottled a few times, where the nice balance of the sweet flavours seems to go out of whack and turn into a sickly mess that’s sometimes hard to finish.

Finn (3807) - Tromsř, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2006
Bottle 0,5l. Dark brown. A large light brown creamy head. Lasring for a while. Sweet aroma of malt and caramel. Caramel dominating the flavour. Some sweet bitterness in the finish. A good beer, but a bit unvaried.

Quinten (1037) - zaandam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2006
dark brown,....dark red under a lamb color, foamy not lasting head, the best dark/czech I ever had with less than 4% alc ..Malty aroma with notes of caramel and hops. The flavour is dominated by malt with some sweetnes and metallic notes.. Slightly bitter finish

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 2, 2006
Great looking beer, copper with a creamy rocky brown head. OK lacing and retention. Lots of caramel in the aroma, with a tiny bit of yeast. The body is a little thin as expected, but shows some reasonable balance and the caramel flavours are very complex. These flavours continue in the finish, rounding off a good beer, perhaps it could be a little more bitter.

HermanW (1021) - Coevorden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2006
The first of september, the dark season starts. I pick a Kozel Cerny what I bought on my vacation in the Czech Republic. This beer is dark and good, could be a bit more bitter. But I like this kind of beer.

Draught. Clean caramelly flavours. Fairly sweetish. Boring and a poor beer overall.

radiomgb (2143) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 26, 2006
500ml can bought at small convenience store in Helsinki, Finland. Murky brown in colour, large tan coloured head, good retention, some lacing. The aroma is slightly metallic, some dark malts, cookies and bread. The flavour has a mild roastiness, some light burnt malts, toasty, mild dark chocolate, nutty. Mild bitter mouthfeel, medium/light body, medium carbonation. Finishes clean, malty and short. Not to bad at all, to bad this isn’t available where I live because I’d have this again.
