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.

There are several types of malt, natural spring water from the Křivoklát Wood and hops from the Žatec area.

500ml bottle: Dark reddish brown with a solid fortress of foam defending the liquid. The aroma is almost smoky, but while there’s a little bit of smoke in the quaff, the flavor is more predominately sweet roasty malt ... and the relatively thin body doesn’t hold up to the promise.

Tasted today in Prague. Not bad, but I was expecting better. More dark brown than black in colour. A little too light maybe.

500ml bottle from Sainsburys. Deep brown with a long-lasting tan head. Aromas of roasted grain with a touch of toffee. Flavour was less pronounced but there was coffee and dried fruit with a dry finish. Very smooth to drink, this was enjoyable.

Krusovice Cerne 1/2 liter bottle Moderate pour in a weizen glass. Brewed 11/06, absorbed 06/07 Poured a clear ruddy brown with a large frothy mostly lasting beige head with good lacing. Smelt of moderate toasted light bread and caramel, with a light metallic/mineral smell. Flavor was upfront light moderately bitter and toasted rye bread followed by a moderate bittersweet caramel and sugary green hops on a moderate finish. Palate was upfront light bodied, slightly oily, lively carbonated and lightly astringent and metallic. Overall, this is somewhat disappointing for a Schwarzbier, but enjoyable nonetheless. I really was expecting a little bit more though. Tastes like metal too.

PilsnerPeter (3037) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUN 19, 2007
Tap at the Bohemian Hall Beer Garden: Deep brown color with some amber highlights in the light and a creamy tan head. A mild, roasty malt nose with a hint of iron. Nice creamy mouth feel. Somewhat mild yet has a decent roasted malt character that gives off a hint of raisin-like sweetness with a balancing hint of coffeeish roast. Finish is mildly bitter with a metallic hint. Bland, but balanced and sessionable.
