COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Modrá Hvězda 14° Tmavé. Unfiltered.

Počátek pivovarnictví v Dobřanech je datován již v roce 1378 udělením privilegia s právem várečným. Původní pivovar se nacházel v Dobřanech v Pivovarské ulici. V roce 1872 byl za řekou Radbuzou vystavěn nový měšťanský pivovar, který zanikl roku 1950. V roce 1998 byla obnovena výroba dobřanského piva otevřením pivovaru MODRÁ HVĚZDA. Spojením původního jména hotel Modrá Hvězda s tradicí výroby dobřanského piva, připomíná název tmavého čtrnáctistupňového speciálu "DOBŘANSKÁ HVĚZDA".

pivnizub (9036) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 8, 2008
Draught at the brewpub: Deep ruby-amber coloured, persistent beige-brownish head; delicate dryish dark-malty nose, traces of roasted-malt and coffee detectable; moderate to stronger bitter-sweet flavour, astonoshingly light bodied for a beer of 5.0% ABV; lingering dryish malty-bitter finish with traces of liquorice and a subtle sweetness. Very pleasant, very well balanced Dunkel...........

PETka z pivovaru. Very dark, nearly nlack colour, large beige head. Malty nose. Full-bodied, flavours of caramel, chocolate and cocoa powder, also roasted malt. Slightly hoppy, not too sweet overall.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 25, 2008
My Bottom Line:
This cherry-flavored mokaccino of a Tmavé thrives on its sensual body and elaborate malt complexity. Another highly successful Modra Hvezda product.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A thick layer of foam covers the apparently clear ruby-tinged dark brown.
-There are few hops in this one, even in the finish.
-The nose is rather fruity, swaying from cherries to cranberries, from raisins to prunes.
-The body on this one is as hedonistic as their Polotmavé’s.

On tap at the brewpub.

motelpogo (7054) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 3, 2004
amazingly black and thick and rich with an off-white head. aroma of cocoa powder. despite seeming to have very little sweetness, i tasted sultanas, molasses, strawberry jam and a drop of espresso. very full for a czech dark beer, probably the most stout-like one i´ve tried

Back from a Czech Republic pub-crawl this is part of my express ratings for the “typical” Světlý 11°- (Czech light Pils), Světlý 12°+ (Czech Pils), Polotmavý (Czech Amber Lagers) and Tmavý (Czech Black Lagers). Non-typical beers will receive personalized descriptions after the express ratings.
-------- /> How: Tap at brewpub (Modrá Hvězda, Dobřany, Czech Republic)
The look: Clear dark ruby body with a medium beige head
To me a typical Czech Tmavé (Czech Black Lager) is: Dark malts and barely any roastiness sensation. Some dark fruits flavours (raisins with a little figs, dates and prunes) wrapped in smooth dark caramel (borderline toffee) and a subtle chocolate note. A bit bready. Moderately sweet without much hops presence and only a mild bitterness (voluntary unbalanced it seems). Very smooth body, like a watery cream.
This one: As above but a little but a bit more roasted and dry than the average Tmavé. Very good.
