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.

hauxe (415) - Butzbach, GERMANY - MAY 5, 2016
Pours black from the can with a foamy head. Aroma is strongly of roasted malts. Taste is roasted malt, coffee, nutty. Light bodied. Smooth. Relatively low carbonation. Don’t drink too slowly or it may flatten on you. Otherwise a quite pleasant diversion.

Faint toast aroma. Light caramel and toast taste. Really bubbily and nice but watery. Nice sipping beer but definitely better Czech beers out there.

Demens (241) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 21, 2016
0,5l can. Dark brown colour with quickly disappearing brown head. Aroma: toast, coffee a bit smokey. Taste: Short sweet first taste than moderate bitter moutfeel. Roasted bread and a little bit of coffee. Quite unusual but good. Light body with medium carbonation. Short dry and a little bit watery finish. Surprisingly drinkable.

ALIBALI (695) - Kiel, GERMANY - APR 3, 2016
Aroma eher marginal vorhanden. Im Mund dann leicht säuerlich und styletypisch röst/malzig, wobei das auch nur sehr sehr dezent. Der Ausklang dann kurz und sehr lau. Wenn man den Style und den niedrigen Alkoholgehalt betrachtet sicherlich nicht schlecht,aber mehr auch nicht. 0,3l für ca.3 Euro vom Hahn in einem Gasthaus nahe Cottbus.

nephirem (247) - CROATIA - APR 1, 2016
Pours dark ruby, almost black color with medium, slightly off-white head. Smell is your typical lager with additional notes of caramel and smoke. Thin body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Taste is sour/bitter. Aroma is mostly malts, yeast and caramel with somewhat smoked aftertaste. It is nice, but water pretty much overwhelmed the aroma. Overall, water killed the beer here. Shame, it has the potential to shine, but as it is it nothing more then mediocre.
