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".

Tap @ the brewpub.
By far their best beer. Pours a deep mahogany red with a wonderful, creamy, small, beige head. Aroma is pleasantly malty, some grain and good degree of roasted malts. Fine, creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is pleasantly sweet, but never too much. Nice combination of caramel and roasted malts. Hops and roasted malts combine nicely in the finish. Nice.

pivnizub (10178) - 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...........

MartinT (9411) - 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.

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.

motelpogo (7705) - 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
