COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

.5l bottle at the local supermarket. Nice enough to see this around, and quite tasty to drink. Great central european drinker, would enjoy it over there much more than here in seattle. Dark brown-black pour with slight creamy head. nose is sweet roast and saltiness. Creamy body with some cola carbonation notes, not too full. Taste is warming coffee and toffee. Pretty tasty, but not the most refined or complete beer. Wish i had this in Belgrade!

I’ve always enjoyed this one. No it’s that the most amazing brew in the world, but it’s exactly everything it should be for where it comes from and what it is. Mellow chocolate flavors blend with a mild dark fruited essence to create a flavorful and light Dunkel. Yum!

BarZigKin (511) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUN 30, 2010
Thanks to bu11zeye for this one. Poured a hazy, dark brown body with ruby highlights. Off-white head with some lacing left behind. Aromas of dark, fermented stone fruits, toffee, figs and dates. I also picked up a roasty, burnt marshmallow scent. Flavor is roasty, some chocolate, light sweetness and a hint of alcohol (from 4.4%?). Medium body and mouthfeel. Not bad. Great nose IMHO.

This is of pretty standard appearance for a dark lager: deep garnet, close to black, color w/ an off-white head of tan bubbles. Raisin-like malts have a firm presence in the nose while some caramel and toffee notes fill in the background. Even w/ gengly vigorous carbonation and a slight roasty bitterness in the finish, this medium bodied beer comes off as a bit to sweet to be truly excellent. Still, I find this to be flavorful enough to render that a minor flaw and overall this is a rather enjoyable dark lager.

(500ml bottle) Pours a mahogany body with a medium dense cream head. Aroma of toasted marshmallow, caramel, nuts, and brown sugar. Flavor of caramel, brown sugar, toasted marshmallow, maple syrup, cola, and toffee.
