imdownthepub (11495) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2006
On tap at The Kolkovna, Prague, Pasteurised, 500ml. Dark brown with malty cream head. The ubiquitous Kozel dark can be found at any of the hundreds of Pilsner Urquell bars around Prague, I have to say that Sandra loves this beer, but I find it much too sweet for me, there is licorice in there and a certain fruitiness, but really the sweetness is overwhelming.

bierkoning (11227) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2004 Beer of the month in a pub in Hengelo. From tap. Deep dark, red brown color. Sweet, malty taste with lots of caramel and coffee. Just a hint of sourness. Light but long-lasting hopbitter finish. Thin bodied and dangerously drinkable. Delicious beer, highly recommended as a summer beer. Re-rate Hotel Schmittbräu in Waldmünchen. Tap. Caramel aroma and flavor. Thin, sweetish, sugary, malty and o, so smooth... Love it!

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein dunkelbraunes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch röstmalzig, Karamell, leicht würzig. Geschmack angenehm röstmalzig, leichte schokoladige Noten, leicht würzig.

FatPhil (10997) - 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.

madsberg (10804) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2002
UPDATED: APR 13, 2003 Bottled: Fine dark colour with good foam. Light aroma with a scent of chocolate. Taste a little waterish (fruitjuice) but has a nice taste of chocolate and coffee.

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2008
Dark and malty and the flavour is sweet, but not cloying, and it has notes of caramel. It’s easy to drink but it could have more depth. (Early rating, and too short)
