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 a dark black with a notorious white head that quickly disappears to the edge of the glass. Armoa is of metal and skunked malt. Tastes almost like a Bud Light in its sour, light lager malt with no hop presence. It does not taste fermented or properly mashed. Not a good beer.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - JAN 7, 2007
Eh... Pours a dark brown with a very nice head which leaves some lacing. Aroma is of carmel and coffee, as is the flavor. It’s a good beer, just nothing special. I will state that it’s quite good for the style, which is underrated as a whole. Oh, palate is rich with a nice mineral feel. Overall, again it’s good for the style, but nothing spectacular. Worth a sample, but don’t kill yourself getting one.

Nut bown with a red hew. Roasted Malty aroma - nuts, caramel. Easy sweetness. Little watery body, but could be worse. Short little bitter finish. Though its very average, OK pleasant.

Dark brown red with a fine creamy off white head. Sweet roasted caramel aroma (though a little weak). Slightly watery palate.Pretty sweet with quite a lot of caramel and a little berry-like tone.

taunusmies (331) - FINLAND - DEC 18, 2006
Pours dark, almost black. Sweet malty aroma. Taste is also malty and full-bodied. Aftertaste has some roasted malts and a bit of sweetness.

This is a nice toasty brown beer. It’s mild in tase and aroma. The head is tan and there’s some nice lace on the glass. I’d put this in the tasting kit for good beer newbies who are trying to get over their appreciation for Bud Light.

bhensonb (11069) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 10, 2006
Light toasty malt aroma with a hit of chocolate. Deep brown, but clear with ruby hilites. Decent tan head. Starts with burnt toast (somewhat like Guiness), Seems thin, and the toasted aspect ends a bit diluted. Very nice.
