Pours dark cola color with small tan head. Sweet malt, molasses, roasted malt, dark bread on the nose. The taste is not as intense as the nose, all the flavors are muted and it is a little watery. Dry finish. Body is light with active carbonation.

Takuuvarma tumma, joka maistuu makoisalta ja toimii ruuan kanssa sekä ihan vain sellaisenaan

the aroma is caramel with hints of toast, dried fruits and, a little bit, coffee... the taste is caramel and fruity with notes of toast, robust and some spices... sweet and bitter aftertaste...

Melnis (275) - LATVIA - MAY 10, 2015
Well i do hate 3.8 abv due to reason the taste is quite good for my expectations from this kind of beer. Intensity of roasted malt can be felt, but it is very watery. Alpearance is perfect :)

SamTheBarrel (583) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2015
500ml 3.8% ABV can poured into a lager glass. Appearance is clear dark brown with a large frothy light-brown head that reduced quickly. Aroma of caramel and roasted malts. Flavours of roasted malts, caramel and bread. Taste is light sweet and medium-light bitter. Palate is light bodied, slick texture and average carbonation. Krušovice Černe has a plain unexciting taste, and lacks strength and bitterness.

Calisky (1541) - ALSACE, FRANCE - MAY 4, 2015
Couleur brune sombre, trčs légčre mousse. Nez de malt toasté et doux. Gout de malt toasté, pain, légčrement grillé. Assez sčche et rapide. Corps moyen. Mais vraiment pas mal pour le peux d’alcool.

wozap (266) - Węgorzewo, POLAND - APR 21, 2015
Brązowe z niską utrzymującą się piana. Aromat co słody, karmel, skórka chleba. Odczucie w ustach jak najbardziej odpowiednie dla blg, jest słodycz, grak goryczki.

Dark brown colour with light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts and barley, caramel. Similar are flavours, with too sweet sugar notes. Low carbonation and bitterness and too watery finish. For me absolutely too low abv.
