2.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2007 I think this is my first ‘Czech’ beer. Yes, it did say BrouCzech dark on it. 12 oz bottle. No apparent aroma that sticks out. Pours nice and dark in my steeler stein. Hops initial and on the finish but not too offensive. Is this possibly a Czech macro company? Your typical dunkle, but with a little hops in there. Im surprized that there are not a lot of ratings on this.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2006 Had it on tap at the Bohemian Beer Garden. Mainly sweet and very thin. not much to it. A little sweet maltyness, with no complexity. It’s thin and simple.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(12 oz bottle: Hollingshead Deli in Orange, CA) I don’t know how this could be, but when I popped the cap, there wasn’t even the slightest hint of pressure release, no sound, nothing. Yet the beer has poured with a quarter-inch, light-tan cap. And carbonation levels in the mouthfeel are a bit low, but certainly acceptable. Weird. Anyway, the flavor is pleasant, if a little pedestrian: sugary sweet, with toasty malts balanced by perfumy, lightly-bitter hops. Really sugary aftertaste. Medium bodied, but much of that is probably from the sweetness. Light brown in color, perhaps even a dark, ruddy amber, with moderate haziness. The head fully dissipates fairly quickly, not even getting the chance to leave any lacing. Not a bad beer overall, but too sugary and floral for me to want to buy this again.

Good light chocolaty feeling. A normalsih red-brown appearance, this isn’t that bad. It’s pretty sweet, probably it’s main downside. Overall, like must dunkels, this is pretty solid stuff.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brou Czech Dark: Not bad for a dunkel. The color is a reddish brown. The steady carbonation works hard to sustain a one-fingered light brown head. Both the aroma and flavor are a mild caramel with a bit of nuttiness. There’s also a suggestion of smoke and a light bitter hopping in the finish. Okay.

A little more bitter than I expected from a Czech dunkel, a style not known for having hops in it. More roasty, too. Decent, just unexpected. I had hoped the beer’d be milder.
