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

The best dark beer I have ever had. Note that I have only tried the Velkopopovcky Kozel Cerny brewed in the Czech Republic. This is the best dark beer in the world. Not too sweet no bite, just right. Of course, Velkopopovycky just won the gold medal in Belgium for best beer in all three categories: light, medium and dark. This should come as no surprise to people that actually know beer. I would also like to point out that in the Czech Republic, where Kozel comes from, 57% of the people prefer Cerny (dark) Kozel to medium, light or premium light. I agree with them. After all, Czechs drink more beer per capita than any other people in the world.

Draught at Zattl/Wien1. Very good Dunkles, good mixture between sweet and bitter and therefore very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wife tried at Lokal on first beer stop in Prague. Really great dunkel-style beer. Soft, sweet. Malty fresh delicious. Had at Easter markets and various stops during the rest of the trip. Served in a glass with a hanging handle - kind of cool.

jaszymku (90) - POLAND - APR 6, 2015
Ciemnobrązowe, klarowne, bardzo mała sycząca wymuszona jasnobeżowa piana. W aromacie karmel, odrobina kawy i diacetyl (ach te Czechy). W smaku znów karmel i kawa, na szczęście brak masła. Mocne wysycenie szczypie lekko, szkoda że nie goryczka.

Niez?e piwo, ale niezbyt wyraziste dla koneserów piw z ma?ych browarów, du?o lepsze ni? piwo koncernowe.
