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.

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.

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.

Came across this one in one of my latest brew hunts. Pretty good, malty, coffee chocolate undertones, not too bitter smooth drinking beer. Its a shame its being discontinued.

Dark brown with a large head. Caramel malt nose. Sweet taste with lots of maltyness. A bit thin with a dry finish.

Somewhat dry, roasty tmave. Strictly middle of the raod, but easily beat the Beck Dark I had after this. Retired? Must have been very recent.

A nice, rather dry and roasty dunkel from the Czech Republic that I've heard of for years but never seen until a recent trip to California's BevMo. A touch nutty and not terribly sweet. It's almost a porter, I'd say, due to its roastiness. OK, but I wouldn't seek it out again.

Retired? Poured dark black with sticky tan head and toffee aroma. Smoky wood flavors on a smooth beer ... quite nice.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2003
This was actually quite tasty to me. A nice bitter roastedness, with some light coffee notes in places, otherwise, it had a very toasted oat, breakfast cereal taste at times. Somewhat inconsistent and unbalanced, maybe it was an old bottle, but I still found it to be enjoyable.

Bottle. A hint of roasted grains and a slightly sweet nose. Very dark beer with a small beige head. The flavor is toasted grains but then disapears to a watery beer. A slight lingering roastiness, but not much else. You'll wish for a bit more flavor.

JoeM500 (1907) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - SEP 29, 2003
Dark, almost ruby tint with no head to speak of. Roasty vanilla nose. Slightly acidic but roasty throughout, some hints of alcohol and a long sweet lactic finish.
