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.

W aromacie czarnego  wyczułem w pierwszym momencie czekoladę.  Niestety po chwili nie dało się w nim wyczuć żadnego aromatu.  Barwa brązowa z czerwonymi refleksami. Piana ładna o barwie złamanej bieli, ale niezbyt trwała.  W smaku mamy niską słodycz, lekką kwaśność i czekoladę od palonych słodów. Goryczka jest niska ku umiarkowanej. Dobrze pod względem smaku zrównoważone.  Wysycenie tego piwa jest wysokie oraz jest ono wodniste.

Beautiful dark brown colour, beige head. Roasted coffee on the nose, chocolate too, some nuts? Medium bitter taste. The only disappointing thing about this beer is its very watery body.

Bottle 0,5l. Low aroma. Very good drinkable, very light body, watery. Some caramel malt, some bitterness. Only for thirst quenching.

Sampled on draft in Moscow in a restaurant not far from Red Square. Black, or at least very dark brown, in colour with a tan head. Aromas of roasted malts and old leather. Deep, slightly smoky, roasted flavours with a good full taste. Plenty of refreshing hop flavour that gives a good, long finish. High drinkability. A very well-made, well-balanced beer.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours black with a tan head. Taste roasted malt, chocolate, Carmel. I thought this was ok. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alengrin (2813) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
Typical Czech cerne with beige, regular, more or less stable head and blackish dark brown colour with ruby hue, clear. Caramelly aroma, bit grainy, bit peated, bit meaty, bit flowery. Caramel malts in the mouth, light (and seemingly artificial) sweetishness, light smokiness, chicory-like roasted bitterness, thin mouthfeel, dry with flowery hops in the end. Interesting example of the style.
