Dark brown but clear beer with a beige head. Dark bread and syrup on the nose. Thin body. Some caramel and roastiness in the flavors. Decent.

Dervock (646) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - AUG 2, 2009
Bottle - Very Dark red with a creamy off white head. Sweet aroma, initial thought was molasses, hint of malt. Roasted malt flavour not as sweet as i was expecting from the aroma.

Panzerfaust (625) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - JUN 29, 2015
Pours a dark brown color with a tan head that shows good retention. Aroma of toasted and chocolate malts. Deep notes of cocoa, butter, milk and hot chocolate. Really nice and enticing. Taste is moderately sweet, subtle and enveloping. It reaches a high peak after holding it in the mouth for a few seconds. Aftertaste is almost as intense. Tastes like a mixture betwen a Bock and a Porter. Velvety palate, smooth and medium carbonated. Medium bodied. Alcohol unnoticeable but shows layers of complexity despite being barely 3.8% ABV. By far the best dark beer I tried during my trip to Germany (so far...).

Not much of a selection on a Czech train ride. Ah well, at least it’s beer. And I’m also really glad its "foam" is dark, too.

UnholyBrewing (595) - Central Florida(Upper Hell), Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2008
...bottle. Nice dark beer, with an off-white, lasting head. Smooth, malty, grainy, goes down well. No overpowering alcohol taste, which is not typical of the style. Slightly sweet, but not over the top, balanced by roasted malt with a nice smooth finish, and a hint of hops. Surprisingly good, but overpriced due to the low alcohol content.

Unde (594) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 11, 2013
Aroma has dark bread and malts. Nice dark head, and color is dark brown. Smooth and fulfilling flavor, dark malts bring some sweetness. It’s like bread that is transformed into beer, brilliant!

Dark. Not amazing, but pretty solid. You could definitely do a lot worse when beer touring the Czech Republic and it helps break the monotony of the numerous Pilsners.
