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.

Pours with a dark brown body topped by a thin head with some lacing. It slightly sweet and malty with a very slight roasty bitterness. Not much flavor to it at all. Light to medium bodied, watery and smooth.

Very nice deep red look with a dense light brown head. Aroma reminds me of rhubarb and home made elderberry lemonade, fresh and fruity with destinct notes of roasted malts. The roastyness is alot more present in the flavor, but it different, smooth, and leaves a nice bitter taste of dry wood. A little thin bodied, which makes it somewhat watery, but i dont think its boring, just fresh. Good one.

A nice schwarz from the Czechs. Not bad and until now the best from there. But I’ll know that there are some better in that country. I’ll find them one day, but until then thisone is the best with notes of watery maltyness, roast, caramel, coffechocs and corn.

500ml bottle - Pours dark brown with a sweet chocolate and roast malt aroma and a medium sized, fading head. It has a sweet, roast flavor with maybe a little of the chocolate note coming through. It’s smooth and goes down easy. This medium bodied brew is good but not great.

Pretty crappy. One of the most pointless and watery beers I’ve had. Barely tasted like anything except subtle sweetness.

Ernest (6576) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2009 Draught, Toronado. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, dark chocolate), lightly hoppy (herbs). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Somewhat grainy/rough malt character, but otherwise pretty decent for something so low in alcohol.

Bottle shared with skyview and scluffman. Dark roasted malt nose on a dark brown beer with creamy brown head. Creamy and smooth body with a slightly sweet dark roasted malt characteristic.
