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

floydian1 (1170) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 7, 2008
500ml bottle. It is a good example of a Czech ladies beer ie. a mid strength dark lager. The appearance is of a red brown cloudy liquid with a short lasting creamy off white head. Caramel malts on the nose. Palate reminded me of a caramel cafe late with a subtle bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied. Smooth and very drinkable.

Borresteijn (5408) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2008
On tap in Prague. Dark brown colour, beige head. Aroma of moccha, malts, caramel. Flavour is sweet, malty, caramel, moccha/coffee. Rather fullbodied for such a light beer, but a bit too sweet for me.

From tap, Dark reddish liquid with creamy head, aroma of malt and high sweetness, flavors of coffee and milk with sweet (maybe too sweet) aftertaste, Impressive beer.

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2008
50 cl bottle at Skallerup Klit. Brown reddish color with a nice beige head. Aroma is roasted malt and sweetness. Flavor is roasted and caramel malt - sweet. Nice, but a bit thin and watery.

ComradeK (1070) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2008
Not bad. Highly drinkable - it goes down very easy. It has a low alcohol content of 3.8%, but doesn’t taste watery like many similar strength brews. Rather, the flavour is allowed to shine without too much alcoholic influence. A little bit sweet, but with a pleasantly dark and malty follow-through. All in all a very good beer.

FatPhil (10840) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 22, 2008
500ml can
Deep reddy brown, bready head. Smell is a bit metallic. Quite watery palate, but a decent enough burnt maltiness to it. Very restrained hops. A little sweet, but some samples we’ve had have been very sweet - quality control’s not their strong point. Quite drinkable, but not very exciting.

downender (6954) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2008
500ml on tap in a bar in Prague. Near black in colour with reddish tones and a foamy tan head. Caramel and toffee aroma. Flavour was very sweet, with a touch of fruit and milk chocolate and demerara sugar in the finish. Ok.
