Harmony between taste and beauty - Dark beer is the traditional product of the Royal Brewery of Krušovice and for more than 100 years the production of this beer has not stopped. The beer has a full, sweet caramel taste and a light hop flavour. The high quality of the raw ingredients assures the excellent taste of the beer. There are several types of malt, natural spring water from the Křivoklát Wood and hops from the Žatec area.

Bottled. Aroma: Very light, I must search it, then roasted malt, caramel, hint of milk chocolate. Appearance: Transparent dark brown to red body, quickly disappearing little beige head. Taste: dominance of roasted malt, little sweet, thin body, slightly watery, low carbonation, without aftertaste. Overall: Good drink for hot summer day, refreshing, but nothing special.

Douberd (2188) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle at home, 500 ml, poured into a lager glass. ABV 3.8% Brown colour on the body, still a bit transparent, with two fungers of beige head on top, thick, with goo retention, leaving light lacing on the glass. Aroma of light roasted malts, milky chocolate, a bit of caramel, liquorice. Taste is a bit dull, but on the finish some roasted malts appear along with dark coffee, quite sweet though. Medium thin body, low carbonation, nice dryness on the palate. Overall more than okay, especially considering the alcohol level.
