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

kwik-lime (1692) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2011
Decent beer with a nice roasty malt taste but let down by a thin palate and watery finish. Disappointing.

Bottled many times, on tap once (so far:P) I guess the bottled ones were generally much better than the tapped one I had today but anyway - drinkable but average beer. way to wattery.

The colour is rather nice: dark reddish brown, but the tiny, fizzy, tan head lives for about 10 seconds and leaves the beer looking rather lifeless. The beer smells very close to the jar of malt extract that I keep in my refrigerator! In addition I get caramel and molasses. The taste is what you would expect from the sweet malty aroma: light sweet both initially and in the finish. The flavours are exciting: in addition to the obvious sweet malts, there are also raisins and blackcurrant. Average to soft carbonation. The Kozel is a good brew, but it’s maybe a bit 1 dimensional: the aroma, taste and flavours are totally dominated by the malty sweetness, and there is no evolution: the initial impression is what you end up with in the finish as well.

the liquid is of a dark brown colour and pours a thin silky head that keeps it’s form for a relatively long time. looks like a nice intact dark lager. aromas of rye and even chocolate are present. a very enjoyable sweet taste and aftertaste make it a surprisingly whole experience. there isn’t too much to this beer to talk about, but what there is, it is very nicely done. there is very little variety in taste and aroma, but the full experience is so intact that it delivers what it says it will; a very honest beer. what i like about this beer is that it is so easy to drink and responds well to the temperature you drink it at. works very well even when it’s very cooled down. this is definitely one of my favourite standard dark czech lagers with it’s strong inner balance and identity.

Clear dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is sweet malty and caramel. Flavor is quite sweet. Sweet finish. Watery. There’s not much to this beer except malty sweetness. 130910

Excellent beer, dark as night, but with a slight lightness in flavour that makes it so easy to drink

mattphilips (801) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 14, 2011
Nagyon sötétbarna színe van, egy halványan csillogó bíbor árnyalattal, habja sárgás-világosbarnás és kissé krémes, könnyed. Íze pörkölt malátás, továbbá rendkívül erősen tejkaramellás és vaníliás. Ez a tejkaramellás-vaníliás páros az ízét is meghatározza, van benne valami tejeskávés, cukros, reggeli italos, ugyanakkor gyümölcsös is, utóízében pedig már a kávé is megjelenik. Száraz, nem túl édes dunkel, ami baromi jól csúszik, de nagy bajom vele, hogy túlságosan vizes, mert ilyen ízek mellé egy kicsit haraphatóbb testre vágynék, különben nagyon is rendben lenne, sőt!
