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

KyotoLefty (8125) - 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.

Hansen (8092) - Assentoft, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2003
Have they mixed this beer with cola?? It's appearance is like cola, and the aroma and flavor is mainly sweet, perhaps a little burnt caramel.

Skinnyviking (8073) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2008
Bottle. High fluffy but lasting light brown head. Very dark clear red brown body. Roasted barley malt aroma with a bit of caramel and notes of butter. Very sweet and mild roasted barley malt flavor with caramel. Low carbonation and a short sweet aftertaste.

DruncanVeasey (7882) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2008
3.8%??! Tap, all over Prague. Ruby tints and beige lace. Sweet malty chocolatey sessions. Cocoa Pops milk with dunked butter cookie. Simple, sweet, beautiful late morning/lunchtime beer...almost a drainpour by evening...way too sweet to be serious. Dark malts beaten to death with the sugarspoon. Overly saccharine tasty restorative.

blipp (7347) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle. Deep amber brown with a beige head. Malty sweet caramel base, very low bitterness, faint roasted notes, and moderate sweetness lasting throughout the finish. Not bad.

Svesse (7262) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2007
(Bottle, Monk’s Café, Stockholm) Mahogany brown colour with huge, beige head, leaving some lacing. Malty, rather sweet nose with notes of dried fruit, brown sugar, caramel and wort bread. Malty, grainy taste with sweetish notes of brown sugar and dark rye bread. Not very bitter, slightly below medium body, rather sweet. Very tasty considering the low abv. Nice.

downender (7253) - 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.

deanso (7196) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2010
50cl bottle from an Albert supermarket, Prague, only 50c. Nice dark beer, plenty of flavour despite it being only 3.8%
