Is a classic Czech "tmave" (dark) beer with a sweet malty, coffee-like accent. Sweet malts are to the fore on the palate with a hint of drying sensation and a degree of fruitiness on the very lightly hopped finish.

Very dark bron color,strong tan head that has some real staying power.Malty sweet aroma,Mild yeastiness,with a mild hop presence.Mildly malty taste lite hoppiness very nearly no sweet taste as the aroma would like you to believe there is more.The feel is kind of weak,watery and if it wern't for the carbonation it would be a total dud.There is a slight roasted malt after taste but it doesn't last very long.Kind of a disappointing brew

Not a bad beer by any stretch, but not something I'd go out of my way for either. Very little complexity but the dark malts do factor into the flavor. It struck me as a fairly pilsner-like beer despite the darkness.

This beer poured nice and had a roasted chocolate aroma. It was a little less flavorful than I thought it would be based on the aroma.

Easy drinking Czech dark with a nose I don't particularly care for. Quaffable, but certainly no standout in the wonderful world of dark lagers.

Brown purple color; slightly thick, tan head; Nose of chocolate roasted coffee- yummy. Good coffee character- lots of roasted malt. Not shabby at all- could give Kostritzer a run for it's money.

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2002
Sweet brown sugar and molasses nose. Deep and dark with a brownish-red hue. Mouthfeel is super smooth, heavy on the tongue and wholesome; very soft, velvety texture. Gentle carbonation comes out near the finish. Brown sugar, chocolate, molasses and toffee notes; mild roastiness. Finishes surprisingly clean (for such a malty beer), almost dry. Pleasant flavors in the aftertaste.

Dark brown color, large head. Dark roasted malts, slightly sweet, lightly hopped, not a lot of bitterness. Medium bodied dark ale. Mouthfeel is full round and smooth. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is malty and slightly bitter.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUN 23, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2003 Deep malt fruity aroma, very bock like, slightly roasty. Thickish mouthfeel, medium bodied with fair carbonation. As expected from aroma, emphasis is on the malt, gains a little dryness and bite in the back, finishing with a coffee roastiness.

A little better than I expected. Definite flavors of chocolate and coffee come out with some bitterness in the finish. The hops seem to make it almost too bitter and not very smooth.
