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.
9.7° 90 EBC.

marcus (7671) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 16, 2007
On tap at Toronado. This black beer poured with a modest tan head. It is nicely carbonated and malty, but not sweet. This beer is very easy to drink, although not particularly interesting.

guzzler67 (1570) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 11, 2007
Reddish brown appearance with a large tan head and good lacing. Subdued aroma, sweet malt, ripe fruit, hints of toffee. Initial taste is sweet, followed by coffee along with some fruitiness. Medium bodied, decently carbonated mouthfeel with a dry, slightly bitter, lasting finish. Paired this with a Krusty Burger while watching the Simpsons.

Smooth slightly sweet schwarzbier that was easy to drink. The ’born by date’ on the back of the bottle read 01/25/06 and I drank it tonight. Tastes like it’s still good!

bitbucket (2160) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - FEB 18, 2007
Bottle. Pours ruby brown with a hugely fluffy, lacy tan head. The aroma has toasted bread, caramel and nut notes, with a bit of hop presence behind them. Light body with a somewhat creamy character. Taste of roasted nuts, bread, fruit and brown sugar. A little bit of corny flavor says these guys may be untroubled by reinheitsgebot. Nice dry and very slightly smoky finish.

Pours with a deep, ruby body and a never-ending, mocha head (at cellar temp). Malty, roasted aromas with smoky peat and mossy slate/iron. Roasted grain is forefront to the flavor, with mild semi-sweetness to follow and a hint of bitters to end. Glancing below, I like Davecooks’ descriptor of, "a brown sugar note (without the sweetness)". An impressive brew from the Czech Republic.
