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.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 25, 2004
Pours brown with offwhite head. Smells lightly of carmel malt and a bit lageresque. Flavor is not bad, not good either. This is a middle of the road dark lager.

Middle of the road beer. Pours with a fizzy head, drops quickly. It has a dark color; blocks almost all light through. The taste is full but doesn’t leave a strong aftertaste at all. I can’t say it is great, it is just so-so. The smell is coffee, bread with a prunish hint as well. I see this beer is retired, but I just picked some up at Total Wine of all places.

Dark color with nice foamy head. Coffee-like aroma. NIce flavor but leaves a water-downed after-taste.

thegreenrooster (3395) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 21, 2004
Pours a almost black, a little light get through it. Aroma is roasted malt and I get some hops in there. Flavor is coffee and chcolate. The taste does not really hit you like it should but its there. Sorry to see it go.

Usually a dark beer with a sumptuous tan head is very inviting. Okay, this looked inviting. The sweet notes to the nose and the maltiness and traces of coffee were appealing. But the taste was dull and flat. Certainly didn’t deserve a gold watch to send it to retirement.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 17, 2005
In the bottle from Asheville Wine Market. This is still available (and plenty of it). Pours a very dark brown-to-black color. Head magically disappears instantaneously. Roasted aroma and strong roasted flavor. Taste is a little better than the pale dopplebock lion. Subtle bitter finish with the dominant flavor being a roasted coffee-like taste at the end.

Indra (2682) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 8, 2004
Malty, roasty aroma, some dark bread, coffee and faint, fruity sweetness, perhaps raisin, along with fainter notes of old wood, butterscotch and brown sugar. Deep, dark mahogany color with a slight, subsiding head. Flavor profile is bitter and malty with a generous spicy hop character to blend with the dry, roasty and chocolate malts. Finish is nutty and toasted, some lingering tobacco and dark brown sugar sweetness late. Palate is thin and a little overcarbonated, body is light-medium. Seems like what I might guess a lagered dry stout would be like.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 17, 2004
Bottle pours dark dark brown, slight purplish hue, large off-white pancake batter like head, with spotty lacing.   Roasted malts, slight chocolate and soy on the nose.   Light fruit, pears/apples, on the tongue, along with some roasted malts.   Aroma is stronger than the bite.   Its also a bit sweet.   Body is slightly malty, mouthfeel is a bit below medium.   Finishes somewhat quickly, malty, with roasted malts.   Nothing complex, a simple Dunkel thats easy to drink.

mjg74 (2632) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 7, 2004
Pours a nice dark color. Has a slight roasted scent. It does have a slighlty skunky flavor. I guess that since it is retired, this may be an older brew. It’s alright.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 21, 2004
Deep black color, big boisterous off-white head. Aroma: fresh, sweet, toffeeish, roasty, nutty. I’m a bit stumped as to to the style. Is it a bottom-fermented porter, a dark lager, of a bock of some kind? Light texture, smooth mouthfeel, very mellow. Light body, but very satisfying taste. Creamy, sweet, delicious. I like it, I like it!
