Beautifully sweet and sticky with distinctive hoppy caramel taste that always reminds me of Northern Slovakia - It is quite simply heaven in a bottle. Not great alcoholic content hence Slovaks think of it as a womans beer lol Only sold in certain places in Slovakia - Cannot for the life of me find it in the UK even though I can find the disgusting Corgon and Zlaty Bazant. Overall the best beer I have ever drunk.

I love this beer, very sweet with rich taste. Different than other commonly offered dark beers which are more bitter.

I had this on tap in Kosice. A very dark brown beer with strong roasted malt flavor. Moderate head as served (at cellar temperature). Just enough hop bite to clear the malt from the palate. A fine example of a dark lager, and the best beer I had in Slovakia.

Draught at the 1.Slovak Pub, Bratislava, Slovakia. –Certanly the best slovak beer that I had in Bratislava, dark brown coloured, minimal pale brown head, roasty malt flavor, chocolate and mild coffee aroma, pleasant light sweet finish

This was my first (to my recollection) dark Slovak beer. Served with a fluffy, foamy, frothy, thick tan head that lasted and some lace. Color is a clear, dark garnet. Aroma is mild, roasty, dark malt, a little coffee, cocoa, & fruit. Flavor was the same with not too much sweetness. Reminds me a little of a black lager. Body is a tad light and has good carbonation. Finish is like flavor with short to medium length. Very easy drinking beer. Session

Kedvenc szlovák söröm. Maga a kiegyensúlyozottság. Habja tömzsi, barnás, előrevetíti a sör testességét, íze pont megfelelően keserű, ez nagyon el van találva, mintha csak ki lenne kísérletezve, hogy pont ennyire kell keserűnek lennie. Megnyugató íz hagy maga után a szájban. Most éppen árulják a Különleges sörök boltjába. Mindenki irány oda!!!

Bottled from Velky Meder. Dark mahagony color, with thick ut unfortunately quickly diminishing rownish head. Nose isplum and roasted malts. a lot! Aroma is dried plums and roasted malts. Flavour is somewhat sweetened and dominating soft roast. Very nice brew in good balance. Best Slovakian beer so far.
