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

Found this at U Fleku in Prague. Couldn’t stop drinking the stuff. And, at $1.50 a pint, very cost-effective.

rane (987) - Nibe, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2010
Can. Dark brown with huge brown head. Aroma sweet, rye bread, malt. Nice. Taste roasted malts and rather sweet, again lots of rye bread notes. A nice beer and lot of taste for so little alcoholcontent.

KyotoLefty (8501) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 21, 2010
Very dark brown, but not quite black. A tall, creamy white head. Aroma of burnt malt. Slight caramel and coffee. A touch of hops and raisins (apples?). Aroma stronger than usual. Sweetish flavor, lots of caramel, not as much roasted flavor as is in the nose. Slight burnt aftertaste, still sweet, a bit of hop dryness, but not much. Not roasted enough. Not enough hops really. A nice tasting beer, to be sure, but on the sweet end of the style. A little more like a German dunkel than is usual for a Czech dark.

Blom (836) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2010
Brown with a fine grey head. The aroma is malt dominated with notes of roasted malts and caffe latte. The flavour is both refreshing and complex at the same time: cold caffe latte notes dominate. Excellent.

davidm (2018) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 25, 2010
Bottle 500ml. Thin body, but enjoyable nonetheless. Aromas of burnt malt, caramel, and cola. Sweet taste, with light bitterness, and average duration. Palate is carbonated, thin and watery. Brown, with a thin frothy head.

rosenbergh (9525) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 30, 2010
500 ml can. Finland.
Dark reddish brown colour with average quickly disappearing tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, dry hoppiness and notes of nuts, chocolate and coffee. Roasted malt, hoppy dryness and chocolate sweetness and nuts in flavour. Quite fizzy. Good Czech Dunkel.

This beer looks great - it has nice deep dark brown color with beige head. That’s exactly how good dark beer should look like. But taste of the beer definitely fails to satisfy the promise made by the appearace. It’s flat and reveals total lack of any vision of the autors. If not vision, it would be good to have at least some idea in which direction to go. In my opinion, the beer lacks even that...
