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.

Bottle. Pours reddish brown with medium beige head. Aroma has toasted caramel, herbal-grassy hops, slightly mediciney and hints of yeast. Flavor has toasted caramel, herbal and floral hops. Minor metallic flavors knock off a point. Creamy, full palate.

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.

douglas88 (8461) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 10, 2007
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.

nearbeer (4921) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 23, 2007

bhensonb (14167) - 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.

sausage86 (27) - USA - JAN 17, 2007
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...)
