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.

Bier brauen (246) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - DEC 10, 2007
Pours blackish-brown with a nice head that dissapates into a thin head. Aromas of marshmallow and leather. Sweet taste, light body, with a fizzy carbonation at the end. Overall, it’s ia good beer for not a lot of money.

Strong head, great full taste. Smooth almost sweet aftertaste. Overall a great choice, but I need to have this locally to really decide. It was a bit watery and thin.

Pours nearly opaque brown-black, with a medium head that lasts. Aroma of molasses, marshmallow, graham crackers, and metallic hops. Flavor is similar. Medium-bodied, with a watery finish.

bhensonb (10792) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 28, 2007
Aroma of dark sweet malt with some coffee. Very dark brown with ruby hilites (under halogen). A beige head that left rapidly. Thinnish mouthfeel. Starts with roasted malt, a bit dry, not so sweet as the malt aroma might suggest. Light coffee notes. Arguably a bit of dark plummish fruit. The finish is dry, and there is a balance of overdone toast by hop.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - FEB 19, 2007
Poured a deep, opaque mahogany with a thick tan head. The nose was of roasted malts, molasses and chocolate. The taste follows suit starting with roasted malts, chocolate and coffee notes as well. The end suggests fig or other subtle dark fruits with a light hoppiness to offset the malt. A dryness leads you to the finish with soft roasted malt taste. The feel was a little thin. Light texture, smooth mouthfeel, very mellow. Light body, but very satisfying taste.

Pours richer and much less watery than its "golden" brother; pleasing to look at. Aroma is sweet and malty. Overall flavor is pleasing, but definitely nothing special. Slight bite in the aftertaste. Enjoyable until the last drop. Recommended with food (I had this in a restaurant...)

DYCSoccer17 (3302) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 12, 2006
Bottle purchased at Little Prague in Davis, CA. Grassy, hoppy, roasty aroma. Suprisingly hoppy. Some anise and chocolate as well. I also detect some woodsiness, too. Moderately transparent mahogany color with a frothy, off-yellowish head and nice lacing. Very attractive. Slightly sweet, chocolate/anise flavors to start. Becomes a bit roasted in the middle. Finishes with slight grassy hoppiness. Rather thin and a little watery, but drinkable and smooth.

Reid (1858) - Salem,Oregon, Oregon, USA - JUL 26, 2006
LIke the old style simplistic label. 500 ml bottle. Good looking dark beer dark brown, bordering on black small tan head, bubbly, nice looking in my pint mug. malty sweet aroma, slightly smoky ash in the back ground. very coffee like accent to the taste as described by others,dark coffee with hints of dried fruit, not much hops happening, dry ,quick finish leaves the impression of wateryness. Pretty thin on the palate, but that might just be the finish. A drinkable enough beer, but totally unremarkable.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 26, 2006
Bottle compliments of Tres Bonne Cuisine in Boise, ID<!-- BR -->Pours a dark brownish black color, a light tan head. The nose is sweet and rich with some subtle skunk and corn notes. Lots of molasses and brown sugar, some roast and a touch of vanilla. The finish is balanced, it has that classic tangy "imported european dark lager" hint in the end. A bit traditional but a bit stale and a letdown.
