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.

Real czech dark beer. Its taste is as beautiful as a young pretty girl with dark hair and brown eyes.

Very good dark beer from Czech! Strong taste but still not too spicy. Similar taste as Murphys stout or Guinnes.

Chopper925 (117) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours in with a nice deep black clear colour, slightly brownish nice head. Aroma is a bit caramel with toffee and dark chocolate. Taste is well balanced sweet and bitter, nice toffee, coffee, dark chocolate aftertaste. Palate is fresh, with nearly a bit too much carbonation, but this makes it refreshing. Good overall dark beer, nice aromas, better than I´d have thought.

worldbeertaste (1608) - AUSTRIA - APR 17, 2014
Deep brown with a tan, thin, lasting, frothy head. Smells of dark malt like a schwartzbier, nut, caramel and raisin. Medium frothy oily body. Tastes of sweet caramel malt but a bit subdued under the dark malt, raisin and soft bitter roast finish. Herbal hops. Nice and easy to drink.
